(12oz bottle) The good news is getting to try my first beer ever during Passover. The bad news is that Iíve tried three gluten-free beers previously so my expectations are really low. Crystal clear apple juice body with rapidly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grape, light honey. Taste is medium sweet, grape, some apple, light honey, syrup. Light body with light crispness. The best of the gluten-frees that Iíve tried, but certainly not one to seek out unless you need to avoid grain.

12 oz bottle-pours a fizzy, quickly dissipating white head and yellow/gold color. Aroma is sweet apple, a little vinegar. Taste is sweet apple cider, faint flat hops. OK carbonation.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2006
Golden coloured with no head. Stinks of honey, way overdone. Way too sweet in mout, like liquid watery honey, and light lemony notes. This is a rather bland mead, if this is what this is. Bottle at the Sunset Grill, Boston, Feb. 11, 2006.

12 oz bottle. I picked up a few of these for a gluten-intolerant friend... she then accused me of trying to kill her. Goddamn, this stuff is nasty. Hazy pale amber. Rancid aroma of motor oil, dirty fusely higher alcohols and cheap honey. Flavour is cidery, band-aidy with notes of burned rubber. So many off-flavours that itís tough to decide whether or not to list them or just let the numbers speak for themselves.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Thanks to Degarth for this one. Medium tan with almost no head....just like a Jewish housewife in Florida lol! Aroma of honey, model glue, slight caramel malt. The taste was astringent, very tart, with slight fruit, hopcitrus, and some tangy yeasty notes. It stayed tart and sour and never really resonated with my palate.

Bottle. Golden amber with no head. Slight honey aroma. Lemony, honey flavor. Low carbonation. Lingering citrus and honey. Medium bodied. A bit sweet.

Pours yellow/gold with a nice white head and minimal carbonation. Smells of honey, nuts, wildflowers and sugar. Tastes mildly bitter and tangy with light honey elements.

"Enjoy this unique creation made with water, molasses, hops, honey and Passover yeast." Actually, I did, but not all that much. I think the honey shouldíve been moved up on the ingredient list, but that would have bolstered the ABV more than was apparently intended. You can almost hear the bubbles popping as the initially large head rapidly vanishes. Nice gold color with a continual stream of carbonation. The aroma is honey sweetness with a whiff of a cleansing product. Nice and alive in the mouth. Basically it tasted like a cheap sparkling white wine with a dash of honey tossed in. It does have a nice dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 OK, this was a strange one to rate, because it was not like any other mead iíve head, yet did not have the characteristics I usually find in beer. It poured a bright golden color with a mildly sticky, white, bubbly head and no lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of honey and molasses, but an alcoholic presence was also there. Too much water and too little honey in the taste. Initially this tasted just like sparkling water, then a light fruitiness (grapes and apples), and the aftertaste was very sweet and mead like. Medium carbonation. However, this was slightly more flavorful than the other gluten-free beer I had.

Honestly, I donít think this was a mead. The body is light golden with a thin white head. The aroma is peaches with some cinnamon and honey. The taste was sweet with honey, pears and cinnamon. I found this to be very sweet. However, after realizing it was a mead, that is not out of line.
