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.

Bottle at Fuel DC. Bold light orange body with medium head. Taste is lager, caramel and sweet. Hoppy nose. Plenty of hops in the taste, also a nice balance of malts. Well done.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty clear amber with a fairly thick and fluffy, if not too persistent, off-white head. Aroma is not strong, but invites with malty and fruity notes. Malty flavor has a strong woody hoppy note and a fruity undertone, just a little sweetness. Smooth texture has average thickness and little fizz. For a gluten free beer, not too bad.

bottle. No question, this is the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Tastes like a normal pale ale, and a good one at that. Nice hoppy bite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a thick off white head...nice head retention. Aroma has earthy and citrushop notes and a bit of caramely malts. Flavor has caramely and toasty malts with nice earthy and citrus hops...good bitterness...a bit piney. Mouthfeel is medium/full and a bit resinous with an earthy/piney dry finish. Really good for a gluten free beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours slightly hazy orange with a small off white head. The nose has notes of cardboard, wet dog, and caramel. The flavor is doughy with light caramel notes and a dull bitterness. Oddly filmy on the palate. Short to medium finish. Not the worst gluten free example, but Iím glad Iím not gluten intolerant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a decent white head. Fruity hoppy and smooth caramely nose. Flavor is toasted and caramel medium sweet malty with notes of red berries, grapefruity hops, citrus. Medium bitter finish. High drinkabillity. If I had problems with gluten, Iíd drink this one on a hot summers day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold body with a tall frothy mostly whit head.
Light floral hop aroma with sweet corn syrup.
Strange flavor that goes from sweet to bitter.
Full bodied, could be lighter for my tastes in this style.
This might be a pretty good Gluten Free beer, average otherwise.
