DuffMan (7220) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Bright golden yellow with an average white head. Low aroma of buckwheat and orchard fruits. Clean grainy palate with a lovely fruitiness (fresh pear, light lemon) leading into a moderately bitter finish. Nice malts here, don’t know how they pulled it off, but they managed to avoid the usual gluten-free fiasco of apple juice and rice water. As a gluten free product this was excellent; perhaps more importantly, as a eer on its own terms this was very tasty as well. If I became celiac, I could drink this without feeling deprived.

R2k2 (373) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
A nice, cloudy, yellow beer with a firm layer of foam. It has a nice fresh, sour aroma from citrus fruits, and the bitterness of hop. The sweet/sour bit moves on into the taste, but the bitterness also comes in a moment later. A nice, subtile bitter aftertaste which hangs on for quite a while. Een iets troebel, maar mooi geel bier met een stevige witte kraag. Een mooi, fris, zurig aroma van citrusvruchten en de bitterheid van hop. Het zurige gaat mee in de smaak, maar de bitterheid komt een momentje later er ook bij. Een subtiele bittere nasmaak blijft lekker hangen.

Crystal clear. Very pale straw blond colour. Aroma has some citrus and floral tones. Mild tasting. Light citrus. A dry finish. Lacking in depth and complexity.

Gravity dispense at Craft 100, CBC Clapham, 18/09/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter citric peel, light smoke, orange, earthy, the smell when you singe your arm hairs on a hob but in not such a bad way! Taste comprises melon, light peach, straw, tangerine. Medium body, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok.
