After Mbege, I knew I needed to tick this bad boy. It’s basically like a midpoint between a saison and a wine cooler. Fizzy, grapey, slightly acidic, it’s not as awful as it could be.

Clear golden with a bubbly fizzy head. Spicy fruity nose, though not like a saison. There’s some honey and guava with a black pepper and spice note. The flavor brings that same honey and guava note from the nose, with a wee bit of herbal spice and muddled yeast dough. Strange. Enjoyable, but strange. Also, the body is like, soda-levels of fizzy.

degbert (1173) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a large-grained white head and a lot -- I mean, a LOT -- of carbonation. It might say it’s unfiltered, but I don’t see any sediment or particulate in it. Nose is the typical burnt sugar I expect from gluten-free beers, along with slight bandaid/latex, black pepper, and a little stone fruit. Starts out sweet, then immediately shifts into a heavily acetic sourness; flavor is short and astringent, and while there’s some stone fruit, green apple, and grain there, it’s buried under apple cider vinegar. Finish is murky and muddy. Not good.

zeke626 (432) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, pours a clear gold body with a white head. Aroma of damp hay/grains and light fruit. Tastes much better than it smells. Taste is light sour fruit.

Trev (1956) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2014
Gold pour, thin lasting head. Aroma is weird fruity musty fermenting apple, wet hay, sour graininess. Not particularly enticing. Flavour continues to unsettle with a lot of wet grainy, un-identifiable berry and spice. Lingering sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2200) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear orange with minimal head. The aroma is nonexistent. The taste is weird sweetness. Bad. Sorry.

shrubber85 (7865) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. Berry, orange, and sorghum aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet berry, sorghum and light malt flavor with the typical sorghum bitter finish. Not horrible - better than most Gluten free beers.

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear golden color with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma has some toasty malt and light notes of fruit and spice that recall Belgian yeast. The flavor has lots of dried fruit, grape, mild spice and a lightly tart finish. Not something I’d want to revisit, but pretty good for a gluten free beer. Interesting stuff.

Patrickctenchi (3970) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle: Pours clear, brassy gold with a quick white head. Fruit syrup aroma, apple. Taste is apple, like a heavy-handed cider...ginger. Spicy, almost nutty flavor towards the back. Sweet. Different....not bad.

dlbeer (832) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Gold pour with white head. Smells sweet and of fruit. Tastes sweet with a lingering aftertaste. Not terrible if you have to go with a gluten free option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
