Just biting sorghum harshness, it literally burns the mouth, almost minty at times.

Amber color with a while head. Caramel aromas, hops, light fruit. Light body, not much going on in terms of flavor. Bland at best.

Appearance: very crystal clear, a sort of darker gold while being completely transparent, pours with a medium size beige head that isn’t dense at all, hades fades to nothing pretty quick Aroma: citrus, tart, rice, fruit, hard to put words on the aroma, very unique and a bit faint, smells like a hamburger bun too Taste: a bit sour, bitter on the end, Palate: very thin mouth feel, almost like drinking a cider, leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste, some amount of creaminess, Overall: not a bad gluten free beer, not nearly as good as a beer with gluten tho, they are no doubt unique tho which is why I like to taste them, the palate and aromas are the most different from a normal beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of plastic buckets and toffee. The flavor is also full of plastic notes as well as some toffee and spice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not good.

Not a great beer out of Colorado, found a bottle of it in cleveland, had some caramel color and a decent hoppy aroma, but that’s about it.

Bottle. Ok beer for what it is. Kind of funky taste. Not sure why I bought this, but I did.

Second GF beer I’ve rated, and unfortunately probably not the last. Pours a medium brown, with a decent head that makes a pretty brief appearance. The aroma is very mild, with little more than hints of hops and I’m not sure how to describe it beyond that. The taste is pretty aggressively astringent for a pale ale. It’s not a hop bitterness so much as a almost chemical bitterness. It’s a bit harsh, but if you’re after a GF beer with some balls, maybe this is your beer. Finish is dry and bitter, and it does linger a bit. Overall, not the one I would choose if Widmer Omission was on the shelves, but hey, at least they’re trying, and it IS beer, after all.

Bottle. Floral citrus hops and sorghum aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Sorghum, saccharin, and weird minty hops flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.
