jgb9348 (6109) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Hazy golden honey coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall white head. Aroma of something horribly pungent, some wet dog, cardboard, yeast, resin, and perhaps a hint of coriander seed - but this one smells pretty foul. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent cheese and bitter metal flavours at first with an awful medicinal finish and a deep unpleasant bitterness at the end. Aftertaste is just as bad with the bitterness from metal or medicine coming strong and hard, a hint of alcohol and a little bit of coriander seed, but nothing good at all. Overall, a very bad beer - even for a gluten free beer - not sure what award this beer won (from description), but it is one of the worst ive ever sampled after spending so much for the bottle! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$3.00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2013.

In short: A dry pale Belgian ale with plenty of orange peels. Acceptable
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Nose is a bit citrusy, orange peels and maybe a tiny tiny of barnyard. Not much classic Saison going on in the nose and only found faint traces of barnyard because I knew it was a Saison and I wanted to find some. Taste is more of the same. The beer uses orange peels and it is what dominates the beer. Bitter orange peels upfront with other citrus fruits in the back. I find that type of bitterness a bit aggressive. Overall the beer is quite dry and thats its saving grace. It didnt come through as much of a Saison to me, especially compared to their Uncle Daddy Saison I had 5 minutes before which was very Saison. I suppose it is hard to get the best out of a Saison in a gluten-free beer. Decent beer, no more. Anyway, I decided that going to the excellent Alchemist for a gluten-free beer was like going to a brothel to get a hug.

Saison type aromas. Off thin water flavor withstrong apple flavors. Tastes more like a cider than a beer but whatever, I dont have gluten issue. Gimme gluten!!

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a hazy burnt orange almost amber color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that slid off faintly. The aroma had some hay, grassy dryness, slight skunkiness, light clove, some bubblegum, and some white pepper. The flavor took the previously mentioned aromas to blend together gently. Slight aftertaste of hay and grassy dryness. Light earthy/grassy finish. The feel was about light bodied, maybe a touch above. Great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, well, it is gluten free and honestly, if I was a celiac, I wouldnt mind having to drink this one. I know "gluten-free" beers arent a true accepted style by ratebeer or even BJCP but hey, with this one, I say who cares, drink up and be happy.

Pours gold into a shaker. Caramel and sour pit fruit aromas. Sweet sorghum upfront turning to mandarin in the sour lasting finish.

Belle couleur dore tirant sur lorange avec une belle tte ptillante, pour les louanges, a sarrte l. Lentre de bouche caramlise est pas si mal mais le crescendo final passe du vgtal lammoniac en passant par lamertume dune gomme de pin. Simplement pas fait pour moi.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Une petite bouteille qui provient dun change. Un liquide orang et son anneau de mousse. Un nez trange de savon vaisselle parfum lorange. Des saveurs dtestables de dtergent et de choses synthtiques. Une bouche qui manque de corps. Une finale qui est pnible. Une bire qui est difficile boire. Heureusement, nous tions deux sur la bouteille. Et, malheureusement, jcris ce texte en direct de lunit dobservation de lhpital Charles-Lemoyne : linterniste cherche encore le meilleur traitement pour ce type dempoisonnement alimentaire. Des ides, quelquun?

Draft. Pours an orange golden body with a white head. Dry earthy herbal hop tones, a hint of lemon and citrus notes. Load of orange peel with a lightly drying finish. Amarillo hop tones, and a bit grainy, with a hint of apple. Okay.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spiciness and light fruits, some caramel and weird malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. After having Heady Topper, I was expecting more from this beer.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow witha white head. Nose is band-aid, phenols, nail polish remover, and some fruit. Flavor is similar with band-aid, nail polish remover, and some slight sweetness of fruit. I know gluten-free beers are their own animal, but I was not a fan.
