Only a little over best by date, but I'm still preplexed by just what style of beer this is!?azzurro (335) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2017
It produces up a deepest ruby that shimmers in the lights. Big, bold, tight sheen of beige foam atop holds for the length and laces well. Aroma of rich malt, roasted carob, char-grilled beef, Bovril™, marzipan, hazelnut spread and a hit of smoked tea leaves. Palate is creamy, smooth, soft, full. Smoke, tea tannins, umami, earthy spices, top soil and thick, thick chocolate fill the mouth. Mild coffee and ash last long, long, long between swallows. Quite rich and sweet with little to no hops evident. Toffee brittle and burnt sugar offer a level of bitterness but otherwise this drinks like an Old ale more than a Red ale. Quite thick and rounded. A standalone GF ale!! (16fl.Oz can, BB 03/08/17, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
Got this one part of the 4 pack around Easter. I had to try this glutenberg hype. Looks like root beer, odd taste, great aroma, missing something. DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Pounder can from Whole Foods. Pours deep caramel colored with minimal head. Nose is dark fruit, scorched caramel. Tastes watery, not offensive, but not much going on. anstei (2450) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours clear dark amber. Aroma is spices, flowers, some candy. Body is light and a bit watery with a soft carbonation. Soft throughout, but in some way I like it. SinH4 (5610) - Garching b. Mï¿½nchen, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 Tap. Ruby color with tan head. Aroma is coffee, spices, piney, caramel. Taste is coffee, malty, some spices. Slightly watery mouthfeel, earthy-herbal, slightly medicinal, medium carbonation. Not bad!

- clear red-amber beer with a firm long lasting foam; aroma of grain and honey, earthy; moderate malt backbone; earthy, light bitter; dry, corny finish with hints of red fruits
Pounder: New plastic nose. Garnet brown, thin tan head. Smoke, new plastic, dried leaves. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Very artificial tasting, Tranquillity (2463) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
Canned. Dark red cherry body, small white head. The aroma is malty and the taste is a bit weak, with chocolate. AlainG (2318) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2016
Rouquine lucide au mince voile. Nez de caramel, de pomme cuite et de figue fraîche. Saveurs herbacées et caramélisées d’une très légère façon. Un arrière-goût acidulé. Elle est aqueuse, mince sucrée et semble fausse. En préparant le souper, ça fait le travail. (Enc. 09-2016) (2013-261016) kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Can. Pours a dark amber red body with a minimal beige head that vanished completely. The nose is better than most gluten free beers, it’s slightly toasty and sweet, but no hops at all. The flavor doesn’t quite make the cut though, as expected. It tastes a bit more like industrial chemicals than it does beer. Sweet and lacking in body, and the minimal carbonation level doesn’t improve things either. In some ways, a bit more tolerable than some of their other beers, but not something I’d recommend to anyone.
