Pale golden body, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is peppery, with some orange, grapefruit, bubblegum and a grainy presence. Not bad. Flavor just doesn’t do it for me. Prickly with an astringent characteristic from the spicy sorghum notes. Orange peel and Belgian can’t mask a lacking base profile. Medium bodied, astringent, dry, spicy, prickly, and a lingering finish. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2015

Bottle as Ipswich Celia. Chillhazy yellow color, dense white head. Light grassy aroma. Taste is sour herbs, bitter peppery finish. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours murky yellow orange with white head. Nose and taste of yeast, old dried fruit and gluten free wheat. Medium body. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2013
bottle. i suppose this is good for the style of gluten free. that being said, golden orange pour, fruity yeastiness, not sure what sorghum tastes like but it must be bland

Draft at the brewpub back in Nov 2010: golden amber with a foamy white head, spicy aroma, sour tasting, some spices as well. Not a favorite of mine. matalec1984 (115) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a very loose quick disppating white head.
Aroma has that clear farmhouse distinction, but lacks depth and character. Slight fruit notes come through but there is something off about it.
Flavor is very fruity, with a hint of spice. Farmhouse flavor is there and for being a gluten free beer the taste was not terrible.
It’s hard to rate anything with Sorghum simply because it is usually awful. While I didn’t really enjoy this beer I did think ti was a quality sorghum attempt and was probably one of the better gluten free beers I’ve had. shonobiwan (219) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottles poured a hazy autumn orange color with little head and medium lacing. Aroma is spicy with some hints of hops. Taste is bad! Initial taste is sweet followed by a medicinal bitterness. I heard good things about this brew but I disagree. No good unless you have Celiac's

So the Alchemist killed everything but the famed Heady Topper...and this strange thing. Weird grassy phenolic aroma. Moldy oranges abound. Sour, grainy and dry, gets all powdery on the finish. May be infected, but really I have no idea what’s going on. There’s no measuring stick. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2012
12oz Bottle, purchased at the Brattleboro Food Coop - Brattleboro, VT. I want to be nice to this, because I know how difficult the gluten-free brewing conditions can be, but I also want to be somewhat objective. The aroma isn’t helping. This smells like a hospital bathroom. It’s insanely chemical and strong. Part fermented sorghum (and I know how disgusting baijiu is), part too much orange, part really catty, pungent hops. The flavors are somehow more doable.The orange is less like cleaning solution, the hops take on a cleaner bitterness, and the sorghum settles into a softer grain character. However, it’s still harsh, strong, and out of whack. If I were celiac, I’d be switching to tequila after this.
