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.

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)

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 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.

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.

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.
