3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite cloudy amber liquid with a taller beige head that diminishes quite quickly. Sweet caramel with a touch of dark candi in the aroma. Nothing real strong, just somewhat mild, in a relaxing sort of way. Dry caramel flavors with a lightly woody and wheat undertone. Agree with the other assessments that this does have a mild Belgian quality, lIkely from the yeast. Light fruit in the finish, with raisins and a touch of melon. This reminds me of there base brew for the old belgian raspberry.

Hazy with what I can only describe as a sort of dusty floaties.
Wow that aroma is off-putting, wow. Like very cheap vodka... some weird rotten fruit, a touch of banana bread, something mechanical... or I donít even know really I want to say burning rubber, but thatís not it... not really. I donít know it, just smells awful.
Wow, the flavor is something. Very tart, very odd. This certainly retains a bit of the banana flavor, but itís not in an especially pleasant way. Some under ripe fruit, plenty of alcohol. For what itís worth it tastes better than it smells.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of Waldorf salad: apples, bananas, mayo, a little sourness, moderately sweet. Theyíve messed up what could have been a good label. Cloudy, the color of light oak wood, virtually no head. Tastes like a bad homebrew experiment - tangy, astringent, stale toffee. Flat, slightly astringent finish, some buttery notes at the end. I guess if I become gluten intolerant Iím switching to vodka... Picked this gem up at New Leaf Market. Talk to Greta, sheíll hook you up.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Iím not exactly sure what this is. It tastes like a mix of banana and citrus fruits that rotted together in a plastic bag. Not a fan.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle with screw-off cap. Iím not a glutton for gluten free so my rating is relatively meaningless. This is my first GF beer and hopefully my last. Nevertheless, the beer is certainly intriguing for figuring out its style. Its aroma and especially flavor are malt-centric. Sweet malt is offset by a strange acidic bitterness, almost like lemon juice had been added although thereís little to no citrus flavor or aroma. Some butter to indicate diacetyl. I am truly sorry for gluten intolerant folks if this is representative of whatís available.

Serving size 8 oz,Servings per container 2. Its a 12 oz bottle.50 cal per 8 oz. Which label states would be 16 oz,but its a 12 oz bottle which would mean this is then 75 calories. Abv states 5.8%. Somethings not right here........
Pale yellow with haze,slight head,medium carb.Aroma is a spice lemon and a strange herbal smell I guess or something.
Taste is light med,some dry sweetness somewhat fruit and spice apple almost like a cider.Cidery finish. Its like inbetween beer and hard cider.Its different and OK but not that good.

Aroma is malts, fruit and a very abrasive edge. The flavor is similar to the aroma with some sweetness; after one sip, drain pour.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a slightly hazy yellow color with a very thin white head. Strange aroma, slightly tart with apples and roots. Some spices as well and a little skunk. Taste is like apple juice that went bad. Other fruity notes with some spices. Overall pretty sweet, with not many hops to balance it out. Not great.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain, husks), with notes of butter, creamed corn, insecticide, ammonia, rubber.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Youíve GOT to be fucking kidding me. The aroma is absolutely horrific, little more than a chemical/phenol bath. Seriously...WTF??? Yeah, GF always kinda suck, but this is almost certainly the worst I have ever had.
