Block (2206) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2014
This is a strange beer. It has a cider flavor to it. The body cannot support the average amount of alcohol it contains.

NFL4NOW (3) - - JUN 26, 2014 does not count
This is another gluten-free beer to avoid. 3/4 of the bottle went down the sink. It does offer a nice head, color, and aroma. It’s unfortunate that the after taste is so unpleasant.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Greg’s dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours a dark burnt orange appearance with a tan head. Weirdly buttery, twangy aroma. Tart, caramel, molasses, bland fruity flavor. Awful.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Syrupy sweet, with a wierd herbal-ish kind of character. Light green apple finish. Also a sort of medicinal character; subtle, but not good. Carbonation seems pretty low.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Aroma is kind of a spicy gingerbread. Not typical of anything. Copper color, tan head. Taste is cidery and metallic with a play-dough aftertaste. Light but sticky body. New Planet offering are not beer-like, instead they are an alcoholic soda of some sort.

This beer has a nice amber color with a small foamy head. The aroma consists of a small amount of ginger, spice, and hops. The taste consists of cider, vinegar, and a small amount of spice with a bad after taste.

probstblueribbon (3698) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a rocky, off-white head. Aroma: Quite herbal, peppery, leafy, soapy, strange, spicy like ginger, pine and resin, quite hoppy but not quite right. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Soapy, lemon-lime, ginger-like spiciness, a sort of toasted grain/brown sugar/caramel thing, herbal; dry with pretty good bitterness and a lime-herbal-soapy finish.

A good effort. I’m glad I’m not glutarded.

12oz bottle 4/17/14 (Meijer)-38° in Shaker-Pours a clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of nastiness with a little hops. This light to medium bodied brew is again not very good.
