UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 12 oz bottle. I picked this up today because it seemed interesting. I had no idea what it was. The Widmer logo is on it, but itís faded and hard to see on the label. Itís like the brewers were purposely trying to distance this from their normal lineup. The slogan on the label "It isnít just what we took out, itís what we left in" intrigued me. I figured it was either gluten-free, alcohol-free, or something else entirely. It certainly doesnít say what it is on the label. Once I got to researching it, I realized it was indeed gluten-free. Anyway, aroma consists of piney hops and bready malt and doesnít smell rancid like most gluten-free beers. That being said, itís not particularly memorable for your average APA. It pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing off-white head that leaves some lace. Taste is remarkably good for a gluten-free beer, but itís completely average for an American Pale Ale. It starts out lightly sweet and finishes with a little bitterness. Carbonation is minute and the body is medium to thin. Itís very smooth and drinkable. The best thing about this beer is that it will be the first thing I reach for if I ever develop an allergy to gluten.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with lacy, off-white head. Aroma of light malts and a good amount of hops. The malts sort of taste like cardboard, but otherwise itís a good beer for the style. Average texture.

Poured by the Widmer founder himself...and you could tell just how proud he was of this. Interesting labeling problems. Now, as for the beer, if youíve had sorghum beers before, you know how much of an accomplishment it is to have something that is in the ballpark of a good APA, yet not have any gluten. A bit on the light side of the hopping spectrum, but still colorful. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

J_man (693) - Tustin, California, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Roasted malt and faint earthy hop aromas from a clear light amber body with a small off-white head. The roasted malt follows right into the taste along with a little caramel sweetness. The hops here are earthy and piney to an extent, but kind of muddled. Thereís a bit of a soy sauce/metallic aftertaste, but itís not heavy. Overall, not bad but it would be much better with crisper and distinct hop flavors. Like the Omission Lager (which I just reviewed), this is an excellent gluten-free beer that actually tastes like real beer (unlike the sorghum-based variety).

douglas88 (5839) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A sweet lemony nose. The flavor is decent: like the lager, this is a smooth light bitter flavor, certainly some cascade, a bit of honey. Very drinkable, a darn good gluten free.

boxofrane (2062) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours copper with a finger of white head that quickly dissipates leaving a small film. The aroma is nice with citrus, floral notes,and a big grapefruit dominance. Taste doesnít match the flavor. There is a little bit of a hop bite on the finish but the majority of this brew is on the bland side.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Omission just canít seem to sell me on any beers they make. This one is like a hoppy amber but with less flavor and character. Very bland and flavorless.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a clear orange color with a finger of white head. Nose starts off with some bread and paper notes followed by a decent enough hop aroma. Some oranges and citrus peel followed by a touch of floral hops and grass. The flavor is a bit on the bland/watery side. Some paper and cardboard, bread, cracker, and orange peel is pretty much as far as we get in terms of actual flavors. Very light bitterness.

Tmoney99 (10467) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle. Poured deep amber with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with great lacing. Moderate smooth floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced bittersweet flavor with a smooth bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2012
(tasting at Des Peres Schnucks) light amber with off white head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is caramel malt and some pine/citrus hops. Not outstanding, but the best gluten-free beer Iíve had.
