2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Approximately 3 ounce sample pour (in a plastic oversized shot glass) at the brewpub in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The pour is light haze brown golden, with no head. The aroma is chemical sweet, weird odd aroma, maybe it’s a touch of honey? The taste is the herbal sweet honey of the nose, artificial and odd. The palate is light to medium bodied, lingers with the weird sweetness. Flavor profile is a product of gluten free, I suppose, but just not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured on draft into a pint glass. Appearance is a translucent brown with a white head of foam that dissipates moderately. Nice lacing though. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Not quite what I was expecting. Taste is kinda tart with a wheaty finish. First gluten free beer. Not sure how I feel about it yet.
