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.

Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a clear amber orange color with a foamy head. Aroma is weak. Dry notes. Some buttery notes. Flavor is dry grains, light in flavor with maybe a touch of hoppy bitterness. Meh.

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 you’ve 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)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at some burger joint in Naples. The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is lemon cake, some orange peel, a bit of candy and grass. Fairly faint aromas. The taste is fairly light, benign. A bit of donut. Grass, some lemon Light, watery body. Caramel malt. Fine carbonation. Overall, there’s not too much to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottled Jul 16th. Slight haze on the orange-amber body and a creamy disc of bubbles on top. Aroma of soapy orange zest, butterscotch and floral hop with a hint of resin. Taste is caramel, zesty orange and tangerine with a slight note of resin on the finish. Light body is soft and oily but finishes dryish. I would prefer less carbonation, but this is the best gluten-free beer of the handful I’ve tried.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear copper with a fizzy white head. Nose is kinda spicy with a strong presene of floral hops and a bit of resin. Flavor is too light, but has a nice crisp floral hop resin taste alongside a pale grain sweetness.
