3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tarnished orange pour with small white head ring and lots of small floaties. Caramel, biscuit, clean citrus and some foresty bitterness for balance. Very surprisingly NOT bad. I would not have guessed this was gluten free. Scores extra points for the fact that this a BEER that just happens to be a gluten-free beverage, instead of the other way around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Maltier than I prefer, the nose has more caramel and bread notes than hops, though I can get a bit of grass. Taste is a bit bitter, but has the taste of an amber ale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
SLightly hazy copper color. 1.5 inch head holds at 1/4" + and has a dirty white color. Lacing is thin but abundant. Aroma is very nice with floral hoppiness and earthiness. It has a nice beer bite and tastes like good bitter hops with a cream ale backend. You canít tell this beer is gluten free. Itís that good. To all you Widmer haters out there... grow up. Drifter, Dead Lift and now this... People with a gluten allergy can now enjoy a very hoppy pale ale thatís delicious... Truly amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - This brew smells mainly of caramel malt. The flavor is of caramel malt and moderately bitter, citrus accented hops. Itís a bit thin yet not as thin as the other gluten free beers that Iíve tried. Thereís more flavor too. Thatís what it comes down to for this beer. Itís not too great. Iíd say itís average at best, maybe less. However the bar is set very low for gluten free beers, making this one the best so far.
