12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors’. Great eye appeal in the tulip. Lightly cloudy gold with just the slightest thin, bubbly head that remained after a huge fizzle, die down. Delicious nose of orange zest and a hint of flower hops. I didn’t even know what sorghum is and had to Google it. My 1st gluten free brew. After finishing, I did notice a graininess flavor that was a bit different from anything I had in a beer. However, not a bad thing. Light lingering hops. This won a Gold Medal in the gluten free category for a reason. Light, refreshing and well worth a try if you like Saisons. punkska101 (2002) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012

12 oz bottle. This is an interesting beer. Full of spicy flavors. Nice balance of yeast barley liqurish and pine nuts.
Great Glutin free brew! BiereLuc (1275) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Bière orangée avec une faible mousse. Nez levuré et fruité (agrumes, banane, poire). En bouche, des saveurs d’orange, de citron et de houblon frais s’amalgament à une légère amertume. Une belle saison sans gluten que j’ai pris plaisir à boire sans gêne. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 20120805 Updated Bottle version - Cloudy golden color with very small white head. Aroma/flavor is spicy with bready yeasts... much better than I remember from the brewpub. Spicy finish... love it...
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a pale golden yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma was mildly spicy with some citrus and bready yeasts. Flavor was also spicy, some of which I attribute to the sorghum, with plenty of bread dough. Medium sour... a bit too for my idea of a Saison, but not unpleasant. Finish is slightly sour/tart, medium hoppy and clean. Not sure how the sorghum affected the production of his beer... although not a top effort, it is not a bad beer, but I see it as a bit of a "misfire" for such a quality brewer.

Golden orange with ring and some lace. Nice orangey spicey gummy aroma. Semi-sweet orangy fruity herbal with finish herbal grassy bitterness. Tastes like a nice saison. I think we will need a gluten free category soon though, just to help gluten-free people sort it out. pineypower (3295) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle much thanks to Scott for sharing. Pours out a well carbonated orangy amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of fruity, spicy Belgian yeast, orange, and light bitterness. Taste is of orange peel, fruity Belgian yeast, light spice, and a solid dose of citrus hop notes in there also, definitely solid, especially for gluten free.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There is definitely a nail polish aroma to this, citrus, earthy, pine. Very interesting, a lot of acidity. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle poured an amber in color with a thin coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has light hops, flowers, light orange rind, and some grains. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has some yeast, light orange peels, minerals, and a bit of increasing bitterness into the finish. Interesting beer but not one I would go back to. Definitely the best gluten free beer I have tried by a long shot. scarletfire65 (1455) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a deep orange, slightly hazy, average head. Aroma is pungent, with band aid, funk, citrus, coriander. Medium bodied, strong saison yeast profile, lots of coriander and black pepper, orange, and a big bitter finish. Crisp and pretty clean, maybe a twang of medicinal flavors. If not labeled as sorghum, I wouldn’t have thunk it.
