4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delightful! Beer made with brown rice, kind of like Sake (which is made from white rice). I taste a hint of the Sake flavor, but with hops and yeast, it’s a real beer. Gluten-free, which is cool. a really delicious beer, more breweries should take notice of this fine Boulder, Colorado Brew Co.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a dark amber to copper color with a thin, soapy kakhi head. Aroma is full of sorghum, some planty, citrusy hops, red apple skin, earthy grain and some odd weedy (as in nuisance, thistle-like) floral notes. Sorghum and rice sugar in the flavor, husky grain, molasses, sweet red apple, and citrus and planty hops. Excessively light, fairly dry feel, moderate carbonation. While I can’t say that I really enjoyed this beer that much, I can say that the many odd aroma and flavor elements seem to be light in intensity, unlike many other sorghum based beers. Which is saying a lot in the gluten-free segment.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Churchkey in D.C. Shared by a gluten free buddy of mine.
The beer is crystal clear, appearing light orange in color. The head is small and fades within a few moments. Both the aroma and flavor offer sweet apple juice. Apples soaked in alcohol. Some characteristics resembling a hard cider. This was tolerable, but I wouldn’t have it again. I won’t knock it too hard, because I have yet to have a palatable gluten free beer. Decent for what it is.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent golden brown colored body. The aroma was of floral hop and must. The initial mouth feel was a shock with a strong initial flavor rush. The shock was less noticeable after the second sip. It has a strange cardboard aftertaste. The flavor was strange and hard to define. Not one that I would likely buy again.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Weird, just plain weird. The nose smells like vitamins and burnt caramel malt. The beer is a murky light brown with no head. Sweet with strange off notes of vitamins and soap. Light with a weird vegetal finish.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Another un tasty gluten free beer. Not much of a surprise there, as it tastes a bit of cheap home made cheese cloth beer my dad made once.

bottled, thanks to the blackswan, amber colored pour with vanilla, wine and figs, thin plastic body hurts it
