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.

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.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - copper; white head; mild retention and long lasting lacing.
S - light sweetness, apples, with hints of orange peel.
T - apples, caramel, spicy with light tartness. No bitterness.
M - light to medium body, smooth, crisp
This is excellent as a gluten-free beers and far more flavor than the big brand American beers. It has a slight sweet, apple character that makes it an excellant session beer.
I wpuld preger mpre body, although most beers nice this for my taste.

Blech! Tastes like a Band-Aid smells. Weird wheaty aroma of artificial banana and chemical rock. Kind of leaves a numby feeling on the lips and tongue. There is nothing tasty nor refreshing about this goop at all. Bottle directly from Sprecher brewery store.

Wow, some of these reviews seem unjustifiably harsh to me... (Gluten-free bias?, Herd mentality? Its different and unfamiliar so its bad?) Apple juice body with virtually no head. Aroma is fairly sweet, fermented fruity, a sort of herbaly funkiness - interesting. Light but not thin bodied, slightly tart, sweet. Flavor is funky fermented fruity, some spices. Interesting, something different. Try it at close to room temp...its a traditional ale after all..

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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 don’t even know really I want to say burning rubber, but that’s not it... not really. I don’t know it, just smells awful.
Wow, the flavor is something. Very tart, very odd. This certainly retains a bit of the banana flavor, but it’s not in an especially pleasant way. Some under ripe fruit, plenty of alcohol. For what it’s worth it tastes better than it smells.

Aroma of Waldorf salad: apples, bananas, mayo, a little sourness, moderately sweet. They’ve 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 I’m switching to vodka... Picked this gem up at New Leaf Market. Talk to Greta, she’ll hook you up.

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.
