Bottle. Bright golden with a reddish tinge and a small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma has the slightly medicinal character that I get from most sorghum-based beers, along with a mild honey sweetness and a touch of lime peel. Body is thin - again, typical of many gluten-free beers - but with some pleasant crispness thanks to the ample but not aggressive carbonation. Flavour is initially dominated by that odd sorghum flavour - sweet with with a slightly cloying edge and a medicinal back note - although the latter is more retrained than in some other gluten-free beers I’ve tried. There’s a bit of fermented apple juice in there as well, along with a hint of honey, and a pleasant lime cordial note in the finish. A respectable effort that I wouldn’t object to drinking again, which is something I don’t often say about gluten-free beers. Or lime beers, for that matter...
[5231-20130417] 12floz bottle. Perfume honey aroma has a touch of cedar closet. Clear, golden yellow body with a quick bubbly white head. Musty thick honey wood flavour has a lingering shrubby finish. Medium body. Interesting but not suited to my tastes. (6/3/5/3/9) 2.6 jercraigs (10858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-17. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head. Modest aroma of fruit and grain. Sort of floral accents. Flavour is similar, fruity almost cidery quality to it, notes of lime (?) and green apple, light alcohol. Average plus bodied palate, sharp carbonation. Bit odd.

341ml bottle c/o G. Clear bright slightly pale gold with an average diminishing fizzy-foamy white head. Smells of ... not much - sort of floral, a bit like perfumed hand soap. Taste - not bad; lemongrass, wildflower, a bit of honey sweetness, not much alcohol - I weirdly rather like this (7-). Light body and carbonation, finishes quick and a little sweet, like orange blossom honey - Leaves no real aftertaste or impression --- but another gluten free beer that proves they don’t have to all suck (are you listening La Messeger and Nickel Brook?) blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle [355ml]. Pours yellow-gold with a small lasting frothy white head. Aroma’s nice, better then expected, with honey, light hops, lime, yeast and some rice -- nothing amazing but it’s one of the better smelling gluten free beers I’ve had. Flavour is somewhat sweet and a bit medicinal along with the aforementioned honey and lime, along with yeast and rice. Slightly unpleasant finish. Light to average bodied. This is, like I said, one of the better gluten free beers I’ve tried, so kudos to that. That being said, I’m not likely to have it again.
