2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
My wife was recently put on a "no gluten" diet for her thyroid problems.... She isn’t going to die from wheat products, but she is embracing it pretty hard. We pretty much always have "gluten free" beers in the fridge anymore.... And, I sample them all.. but Widmer seems the only couple right now that make enjoying gluten free beer worth it.
Nose is thin malt.... some hints of caramel.. very minor pale maltiness... some hints of tropical fruits and citrus... a bit of toasty malt with warmth..
Flavor is better... hops are fruity.... citrus and tropical... but still very minor.... As expected, the malt profile is thin... but much more like a standard Pale Ale.. I’ve had much worse pale ales that were all "malt" and full hops.
Not bad.... seriously... not bad at all.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Very light smell with some bread and hay. Similar taste. Very light and mild. Boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at the Chili’s at the Orlando Airport. Lightly hazy orange with a medium off white head. Nose is light floral and grassy with a hint of caramel. Flavor is lightly bitter with some contrasting sweetness. Pretty much just an OK beer but it is good for a gluten-free one.

12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with moderate head. Aromas of light biscuity wet malts. Flavors of light carmel malts with only a hint of hops. Not much presence but not offensive.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Robe orangée, légèrement opaque avec une belle mousse qui tient bien. Nez métallique, herbal et résineux. Idem en bouche. Texture légèrement liquoreuse. On reste sur le goût de métal sur la fin.
À moins d’être un fan de jus de clous rouillés, je déconseille.
Je n’avais pas remarqué que c’était une bière sans gluten. J’ai compris la leçon: les bières gluten free, plus jamais!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops, caramel, and metal. Flavor similar, not the worst gluten free beer I’ve had, but not good.

bottled - pale golden color. A drinkable, sessionable beer but nothing special. Just ok.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is balanced. Taste is a little yeasty, but otherwise a pretty good balance of bitter hops and sweet malts. Overall better than expected.
