Tweason’ale is a beer we brewed on the cusp of summer. It is a gluten-free sorghum based beer brewed with fresh strawberries from our friends at Fifer Orchards near Dover, Delaware. For the sorghum, we sourced a dark, sweet, syrup with notes of molasses and pit-fruit. We also used a a dark buckwheat honey with a beautiful hay-like, earthy-malty thing that we felt added the final touch to this Tweason’ale recipe.

12 ounce bottle at the Brass Tap, poured a golden clear color, aromas of rice, lots of honey and light strawberries. Flavors are big on honey and strawberries. Decent gluten free, most strawberry flavor I have ever had in a beer.

This was in the craft beer selection on a recent cruise up the inside passage to Alaska on the Celebrity Infinity. Poured a clear gold with a small white head. Nose is mostly honey. Medium body, with low carbonation. Flavor is honey and strawberry. Too much honey. Not very enjoyable.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light sweet fruity aroma with a hint of tartness. The flavor is fruity and grainy, with an odd tartness. Not bad.

Bottle: Some test beers should never leave the lab. In a blind taste this would score much lower, I sense a lot of brand-love here. Food Pairing: Strawberry Shortcake.

Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of rice, some spicy hints. Tastes of earth and tea with a spicy finish.

Y’know... in the much-disparaged world of gluten-free beers, this is really not that bad. Pours a deep clear gold, low head, no lace. Smells quite ’berryish’, sweet strawberry, obviously no malt aroma, but there is something akin to hop aroma here. Flavor is sweet, thin, lots of berries, that odd sorghum sweetness and it’s all pretty well balanced. Finish is seltzer-water honey-berry, a bit dry. I mean, it is sweet and fizzy and pretty beer-like... thin and perhaps difficult to plow through, but if you have gluten intolerance and like strawberries, you’ll want to drink this. I dunno, I rather enjoyed it; it’s a departure.

A friend of mine Suffers from Celiac disease, which is a sure sign that god hates you. So, I have had the [mis]fortune of trying a few gluten free beers recently. In a nutshell, they blow turds. This one ain’t terrible and quite frankly, my friend likens it to hitting the lottery. Seems as though gluten free beers are getting better and better, and while this ain’t great, it’s drinkable.

First gluten free beer and I don’t think I am gonna be rushing to try more any time soon. Notes of strawberries and kinda syrupy...

This is definitely an interesting beer, quite unusual. The strawberry-candy flavor is predominate, but there is also a subtle underlying syrupy taste. Strange taste for a beer, but ok.
