2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
This ale seems like it missed the plot, the smell made me interested, i kind of got an idea of what i was going to taste and then well it just wasnít what it seemed, itís really carbonated but no flavor, only an acidic aftertaste and maybe some sort of fruit but just lacking any noticeable enjoyability. Iím kind of upset i have to drink this, i donít want to pour it out i spent money and times are hard!

Talking about something totally different.
This one replaces wheat and barley by sorghum and millet.
I appreciate Sprecher for their initiative as this beer really takes an open mind to really appreciate it.
The taste was just unique. Aroma was totally different than usual, of honey Taste was a mix of spices and smoke.
While not horrible, the beer is on a league of its own as it will challenge all your taste buds to even dare finishing a small sampler.

I keep trying to give these gluten free beers a fair trial, but...man...this is tough to finish. Really sweet, really thick, and cloying. Pretty tough to finish.

Pours a hazy orange. Aroma is sawdusty. Taste does not match the aroma. I get caramel at the front of my mouth and alcohol at the back. New Planet gluten free is a lot better.

Pint bottle. Hazy gold with a big white head. Sour and bready. And somehow this only has 100 calories a bottle? I went in expecting this to be a bit different, but this is just not at all pleasing to my palate. Possibly the weirdest sourness Iíve ever had in a beer.

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.

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.

Copper coloer with shit floting in it.Small head. Doughy bready aroma. The taste was the same wuth some strange tart funk and caramel. Not bad, but becomes annoying after awhile.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a very small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a skunky fruit with spice. Decent spotty lacing on the glass. The taste is a bready malt with some citrus and very watery. Not much going on with this one.

16 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color. Head was spritzy, white, and disappeared in quick fashion. There was no lace left behind. Light fruity aroma, mostly apple, with a hint of carboard. Flavor was similar and occasionally reminded me of inexpensive champaign. Not my bag.
