Dobre i świeże piwo bezglutenowe. Żółty jaskrawy kolor ale mała piana niestety. Aromaty świeżo skoszonych zbóż i wiosennej łąki są wyraźne. Smak gożki, chmielowy. Finisz dośc wytrawny. Smaczne i zdrowe piwo. Polecam bezglutenowcą.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 Bottle. Streaming, anaemic gold sustaining a bright white, thick and uneven foam. Fine dishcloth, dank lemon and lime, brittle leafy aroma with suggestions of kaffir and dried curry leaf. Good, uncomplicated, limey hop underscored with crackery malt flavour. Like cask JHB but better. Could happliy spend a few hours contemplating the aroma, body and flavour of this on a summer’s afternoon, or right now come to think of it. A brace of excellent offerings from Wold Top tonight; scoring this up all round because the absence of gluten is incidental to the flavour- of which there is plenty. Tasty, brittle, floral stuff and a fine GA.

jrscruff (19) - Killaloe, IRELAND - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle. Lovely, rich, bitter flavour. Lightly carbonated. Strong fruity aroma. Considering this is wheat free, I cannot notice any significant difference from any other ales. Coeliac's rejoice!

cask at NWAF ... golden amber ... sweet lemon nose ... sweet ruits ... light fruits ... ok .. and good for a gluton free scoring higher for that reason

johndoughty (3979) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow with a small head. Crisp slightly hoppy flavour. This is the first gluten free beers that I have enjoyed. A pleasant surprise.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Clear straw with bit sparkling and one finger frothy head. Hoppy fresh aroma with citrus and pine and also bit tropical fruits. Light to medium body, bittersweet, round feel, bitter finish is long, nice carbonation, malting balances smoothing the bitter hoppiness. Easy to drink and tasty, refreshing.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF08. Weak fruity aroma. Hazy golden colour. Small white head. Fruity flavour, slightly sweet. A little grassy hops. Was this gluten free? Does not taste it. OK hoppy but still slightly boring. By far the best gluten free beer I have had.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - 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.
