Omission did it right! THANK YOU is all I can say. 5.8% ABV. This promises a REAL pale ale taste! For those Celatic folks and former IPA or pale ale drinkers that are struggling to go gluten-free, donít waste your money on the expensive other options. BIG THUMBS UP!

If you are a Glutard like me this is a fantastic beer. Great color, aroma, and appearance. Reminds me a bit of a Heffeweizen. Nice clean taste and not heavy on the palate.

Fantastic beer. Pours great, nice citrus hop nose. Palate is medium, nice bitter balance with a bit of toasted grain. Surprise! No grains... Great beer that happens to be gluten free. Widmer never ceases to impress. -Fish!

Bottled 27APR12 Intrigued by their attempt, apparently a new process allows for a more authentic profile. Pours orange amber with an etched surface. Nice nose up front, crisp and hoppy with apple and grapefruit. Some tea and malty undertones. Flavor is malty (not expected) and sweet with herbal and bitter hop components. Iím down with the flavor here, really approachable! Medium bodied with hi carb and a semi dry finish. Great quality, surprised, gonna have to try the lager. Iím happy to see a gluten free option sans shitty flavor. Well considered and thoughtfully crafted. I expect this to be a limited addition to the line in lieu of the gluten free craze sweeping the US right now, but itís a welcome one in my opinion. A great option for the celiacís right here folks.

This is one of the best gluten-free I have had. I see there is some debate regarding itís gluten-free labeling. It is really a good beer regardless. I get stomach aches and headaches from the majority of Gluten-FULL beers. No problems for me with omission (of course without over indulging)

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.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice golden amber to bronzed brown color. There was a nice one and a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute and left a decent amount of spider web lacing. Nice look! The smell had a nice strong hoppy spicy to somewhat citrusy sweet profile. The taste was semi-sweet but carried a decent bitter hoppiness about it. There was a sticky sweet citrusy to caramel aftertaste and a light yet quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the APA style and it still had a decent sharpness invading my mouth and tongue. Overall, for the most part, Iíd say this was a nice APA made as a gluten-free. If I couldnít have wheat products for the rest of my life, Iíd definitely be drinking this with no problems whatsoever.

Pours a honey gold color. Thick and creamy head. Nice lacing. Itís a good start to a mysterious beer.

Smells like an IPA. In fact, it may even smell more like a brown ale. It smells great. I smell caramel and/or toffee. I also smell some hops.

Tastes pretty good. Better than a lot of beers Iíve had. Tastes like an IPA but thereís a lightness to it, but itís also sort of rich in flavor. Iím supposed to smell the floral, but I taste it more so. I taste some pine, and some caramel.

Mouthfeel is sort of weird. While it tastes good and all, itís just not quite as heavy as an IPA. Itís somewhat watery. Itís very dry, and it finishes bitter. Itís true to an IPA in the finish, but thereís just something about it.

Overall, Iím extremely surprised by this. I was expecting a whole lot less. Itís actually delicious. I would certainly buy this again. If itís gluten-free youíre looking for, this would be amazing!! I still consider this amazing. At 5.8% itís pretty good for an IPA, and pretty drinkable. Try it!!

Hey now! This is the real deal. Iíd drink this brew any day. Excellent hop presence with a solid malt foundation. Good head retention and carbonation. Nice job guys.
