COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Projet Américain.

La Glutenberg pale ale américaine est une ale sans gluten, brassée à partir de millet, de sarrasin, de mais et de quinoa. Son nez expressif offre des arômes d’abricot et de pamplemousse. La bouche, d’une belle amplitude, explose avec des notes d’agrumes, spécialement de pamplemousse, véritable signature des houblons américains. Elle présente une amertume relevée, caractéristique de ce style de bière.

Can from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours gold with a slight fizzy white head. Nice citrus aroma, mayhap including grapefruit. Med body or nearly. Flavor starts nicely citrus hop, and then sort of loses with no hop support. Or not nearly enough. Getting some sort of hot burn in the finish. Each quaff starts nicely, and then it doesn’t go well. Gluten free seems to work best when the gluten is removed from real beer. Widmer does some contract beers like that. http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/omission-

hellonearth (149) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Une blonde ambrée assez claire avec un petit col. Nez de céréales inusitées (est-ce réellement le quinoa que je sens?). Légère arôme d’agrumes. Carbonisation de petites bulles. Amertume assez franche. Goût discret de céréales. Un peu aqueuse et sec au final.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Can at CiderWISE, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose is weird, with some strange grain notes. Flavour is bone dry, with grains, light hops, and a bone dry finish. Quite nicely balanced and constructed. Good stuff for a gluten free beer.

Boutip (6179) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
Can: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light hoppy notes with light grainy malt notes. Taste is also dominated by light hoppy notes with some grainy malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad but fell a bit short on the hops flavours in my opinion.

asedzie (813) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Can. Pours copper with thin white head. Nose has citrus peel and caramel. Body is thinish with good soft carbonation. Flavor has many notes of a moderately good pale ale - caramel notes, fruity esters and a spicey hop profile - there is just a trace of an off flavor near the finish, has an almost plasticy burned toast character - but finishes with a very nice burst of hops and light bitterness. Nails the style and has good hops - short on finesse, but that’s what you get without barley apparently.

ljthiessen (1245) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Can. Crystal clear golden yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma is grain, corn, hints of graham cracker and apple juice - light and no skunkiness, but pretty boring. Flavour is corn, grains and some overripe fruit. Light sweetness and slight bitterness make it very drinkable and reasonably balanced, but flavours are just kind of bad.

Franckg (1482) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Goût de céréales beaucoup trop prononcé. L’amertume est assez âcre. Correcte mais je m’attendais à une plus grande présence de houblons.

Suttree (6264) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2014
I keep trying, I really do. But it more of the same - sour, slightly metallic malts and decent hops. I’ll take my beer with extra gluten, please.
