osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours a clear light orange red with a very ring of small white head. Aroma of sweet light raspberry and soap. Flavor of raspberry and tart. Tastes much better than it smells. Not bad.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2012
Pours watery pale pink, like a tavel rose. Light raspberry, sweet corn aroma. Soft attack showing more of the same on the palate. Light body, thin-creamy texture and a short, medium sweet finish.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours pale pink. No head. Nose is raspberry with some sweet, grainy, and honey malts. Flavor is mild and light. easy to drink. slightly sweet and grainy flavor but finishes dry. This is my first gluten free beer. Actually impressive since I expected so much less.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - APR 22, 2012
UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Smells like raspberries. Pours orange with a white head. Tastes like a wine cooler. Not a great fruit beer.

Bottle. Poured hazy reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate raspberry fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium raspberry sweet flavor with a medium sweet fruit finish of short to moderate duration. Soft fruit beer.

Man, I am glad I dont have one of these new fangled diseases people have been getting where you cant have gluten. I like beer. This stuff is made from sorgum and "corn extract" whatever that is. It is a ight pinkish brown golden color w/ no head. Nose is sort of vaguely malty and toffee-ish but kind of strange around the edges. Taste is a bit better w/ some tart fruits playing off a touch of sweetness but still a weird non-beery taste in the background is hard to ignore. Carbonation is crisp which would suit a brew like this but the texture is a bit oily. Overall, I have tried worse gluten free beer like concoctions but I will be pleased to not run into this one again.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2012
12oz bottle, pink label. Pink orange color. Bright white ring of fizz. Aroma of fruit puree, raspberry essence. Tart flavor form the adjunct corn extract. Finishes with a sweet raspberry note. Much better than Tread Lightly Ale, still gluten free. (3265)

DrnkMcDermott (3058) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle. $2 at Lemon Tree. First beer Ive seen with the "Nutrition Facts" on the label. Fizzy pinkish body and head. Light raspberry smell. Nothing to replace the missing malt smell. Taste is a bit of raspberry in light sparkling wine. For a brew with corn in it, it manages to rein in the usual corn sweetness. Instead, a dry, fizzy brew with raspberry in balance. Not much bitterness, so the light dryness carries the day. Best sorghum beer Ive had.
