2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
01/08 0.33 l bottle from Interspar, Udine. It poured murky golden body with small head. Fine aroma, yeasty with some banana, bready with a bit of vanilla sugar. Flavor is a disappointment, very watery with just a little bit of some sourish and sweetish malt. Almost no finish, some sourness. Hoped it will be something good after I smelled it!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, thx to Papsoe. It pours a slighlty hazy, a bit pale golden body with a minimal off-white head. Butterscotch, pears, some grains and a touch of sourness in the aroma. Sour malt that is. Slightly lemony flavor with grains, some butterscotch and sour malts. Quite weak, and lacking bitterness. Grainy-sweet, lemony finish. A beer with little flavor, it’s boring and not very good either. If I had to drink gluten free, this one could do though. (090219)

Bottled. Cloudy straw colour, no head. Sweaty fruity grainy nose. Ligjt bodied with doughy fruity sorghum. No bitterness. Sorghum based lager beers are seldom good, this is no exception.

Bottle, 4.7% as Gluten frei. Fruity aroma, a bit like lemonade. Cloudy yellow colour. Small white head. Perfumy flavour, rotten fruit, a little plastic. Rough bitterness. Wow, this is quite bad.

As Riedenburger Gluten Frei.
Bottled BB 09/2009. Sampled to celebrate oh6gdxs 30th birthday, cheers Patrik.
Hazy, murky yellow color, small vanishing white head. Grainy pineapple juice aroma. Watery palate. Grainy with odd off-flavors like spelt, spices and plastic. Slightly bitter aftertaste. This is ... not tasty.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl bottle, labeled as Riedenburger Glutenfrei) Hazy, pale golden colour with a short creamy white layer. Sweet and slightly sourish citrus-fruity nose with a light yeasty and stronger mouldy touch and something that I would describe as anise spice. Light-sweet and slightly sourish tart flavour, light bodied with a soft carbonation. Slightly yeasty, fruity (citrus, apricots) and malty taste; sourish fruity finish with late arriving and shy bitter and herbal hoppy notes. Not entirely bad, even drinkable for the style (04.XI.08).

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottled) Opaque yellow-golden with a small, lightly lacy and mostly fading head. Wheaty-lemony aroma with fruitiness and corny hints. Flavor has nasty solventy notes with lemony fruitiness, and a strong, gingery-cardboardy burn. Leaves a dry and bitter, but not that pleeasant aftertaste. Light body with not much carbonation. The aroma was ok, but flavor is pretty nasty. I expected better than this, as the brewery is quite good.
