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.

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. Its hard to rate anything with Sorghum simply because it is usually awful. While I didnt really enjoy this beer I did think ti was a quality sorghum attempt and was probably one of the better gluten free beers Ive had.

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 whats going on. Theres no measuring stick.

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 isnt helping. This smells like a hospital bathroom. Its 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, its still harsh, strong, and out of whack. If I were celiac, Id be switching to tequila after this.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Cloudy orange color with a small white head. Fruity nose, dried apricots, some spice and light grain. Juice-like flavors of oranges, low bitterness, some yeast and metallic notes. Kinda dry, medium bodied, lively, off balanced and overall not that great.

Pours cloudy orange/brown. No head. Almost no smell at all. Taste is fruity, with some spice and a bit of tang. Very light bodied, as most sorghum brews are. Not my thing at all. But it is better than other G free beers Ive had.

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.

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.

Thanks to Sam for sharing. I think this was actually my first ever gluten-free beer, and now I understand why my friend with Celiacs just drinks wine instead of settling for these quarter-measures. Slightly herbal aroma, and has the weird taste of yams.

Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. The nose hides the sphorgam nicely with a little rustic spice, citrus zest and some round fruit. The palate however does not hide the sphorgam quite so well,,, strange artificial sweetener, grainy aspartame, dirty lingering aftertaste... One of the better go beers Ive had but am convinced that this cannot be done well...
