The color of this beer is a light orange color with no head but with some fine light and dark sediment, and the aroma smells slightly like raspberries. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet; however, the palate has a weird thinness to it--much like that of a kvass or a malt soda--alongside a light body, lively carbonation, and a slightly astringent finish.

Maybe I have a thing against gluten free beers. I am starting to think that as soon as I see "gluten free" on the label I immediately assume it’s a nasty disaster. So I may have come in biased in the review. That said, I kind of didn’t hate this. The cloying, syrupy raspberry flavor kind of covered up the nasty ass sorghum and corn flavors.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized amber colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and no lacing. The odd aroma was cardboard. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of cardboard and raspberry. Not one that I would drink again.

Aroma is raspberries and slightly off-putting malts. The flavor is raspberries but more-so off-putting, most likely the sorghum, not really that good but not horrendous.

Bottle to taster. Looks alright; a transparent orange with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Smells Of almost nothing, but tastes a bit better with a notable raspberry presence. Average on the palate. Not aversive or enjoyable.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of light grains and raspberry juice. Taste is light sweet and tart. Raspberry juice but a weird nasty aftertaste. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and an entirely too long of a finish. Overall, meh. Starts out ok but the aftertaste ruins it.

bottle. golden with a slight pink twinge. Strange on just about all aspects. Best of a bad trio of beers from New planet. Thank god I’m not gluten intolerant.

Patrickctenchi (6810) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours clear, slightly rosy-pink gold with a miniscule white/clear head. Scent is minimal....a bit of non-descript fruit. Wet, grainy cardboard taste. Awful stuff.

tmoreau (4743) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Bisby’s Pour House in Addison, IL.. Displayed a bright & clear, amber color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and translucent spots & streaks of lacing. The nose disappointedly started with a light whiff of butterscotch, followed by a mild, zest perked raspberry. Light to medium bodied, the flavor offered decent spritziness, light tartness, and raspberry that was not overpowering. Okay, except for the light diacetyl introduction.

bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Fruity, yes, but also kind of weak, like they bottled it before the barrel was finished.
