As much as I wanted to like this GF beer, I could not. Typical warning signs: no head, no lacing, no body of any consequence. The sweet, tangy, feel to this beer is pretty odd. A Bardís Gold would be a step up from this (yikes), but just drink a St. Peterís GF if you need a GF beer.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 This is nasty. Pours piss yellow with white head. Aromas are some decent hop and dank.. but itís all bad after that..... Rarely have I had beer thatís made me recoil so Badly. I would happily take a Budweiser over this any day. Now thatís saying something.

Copper colour with no head or lacing. Malt aroma. Weird skunky flavour. Almost like a weird mixer drink. Odd beer, not very pleasant.

Pours a clear yellow with a small white head thatís short lived. Aroma is sorghum, and light citrus. Flavour is sorghum, alcohol(really comes up with the sorghum), citrus, and kinda tangy. Definitely below average for a gluten free beer... The girlfriend just put her clam juice in it but not before I tasted it lol.

2010-05-28. Hazy pastel orange body, small white head. Flavour is odd, light citrusy hops, odd grainy character, cidery notes. Aroma of light hops, light citrus. 6+ Average to thin palate. Bit rough and wonky, not quite enough hops to cover up the underlying cidery character. Bottle at Cíest What, Toronto

My wife is on a Gluten Free kick right now and she picked one of these up for me....I wish she didnít. Sadly...this is another sad attempt at making the nectar of the gods into a healthy choice. I did notice that itís not labelled as a beer, but rather a alcoholic beverage. I believe itís supposed to be an IPA so it has a hoppy and has a bitter finish. Usually I find that IPAís have a bitter Citrus rind taste, but I found that adding a squeeze of lemon helped it and made it slightly more appealing. Pine also comes to mind when I drink this...not sure why...but this one can stay in the woods.

Super clear but golden colour. Fermented soy and floral hops aroma; has a íjuiced fruití note and honey as well. Taste is lingering metallic bitterness and talc. iím not going to spend more time on this brew, no much to enjoy.

Atheist_Peace (945) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
473ml can. Pours a clear, golden honey colour with little head that disappears quickly. Nose of hops and gasoline. Thereís something like synthetic leather in the nose too, and something that gives a sweet impression. Tastes....weird, sort of beery with a synthetic, rubbery, hoppiness. Not as sweet as I expected. Thereís something really sharp in the finish thatís really unpleasant.

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 Don?t drink a lot of gluten free beers but this is one of the better ones I have. Pours a golden yellow color with little white head. Smells of light citrusy hopps. Taste is a bit sour with a tangy finish.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
Single can purchased from Zyn Liqour on 07/23/2012. Colour: Medium yellow with trace amounts of gold. Low white head. Nose: Hops that show pine and grapefruit. A chemical-like glue or melted plastic note....also some hand cream. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-high sour. Apple juice, more plastic/chemical, dry herbs, pure sugar late and bitter settlement on finish. Not a fan.
