Bottle pour clear orange. Nose of dank hop and malt. Taste of peppery hop and malt sweetness. Malt presence a little overpowering for an ipa. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours copper with a finger of white head that quickly dissipates leaving a small film. The aroma is nice with citrus, floral notes,and a big grapefruit dominance. Taste doesnít match the flavor. There is a little bit of a hop bite on the finish but the majority of this brew is on the bland side. Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2012
12 oz single from Trader Joes ,Salem OR.
Nice clear golden ale with a good sized frothy white head.
Aroma mostly floral/grassy hop sweet shortbread malt aromas.
Taste is a combination of the sweet malt and floral hop its OK but missing a whole lot of substance ( i guess gluten is good for something)
Its not bad and rather drinkable yet pretty uninspired.
But had i celiacs disease this would be nice. blackisle (2527) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle 35.5cl. Poured into a shaker. Clear medium amber, good twofinger frothy off-white head, good retention and lacing; aroma toasted malts, grain, light citrus, quite earthy touch; taste medium sweet and bitter, malty, burned caramel, bit fruity, earthy; malty bittersweet aftertaste, earthy notes; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation; quite nice for a glutenfree one.

Bottle. 5.8%. Best before 04.10.17. Pours a slightly hazy golden/amber, with an off-white/yellowish head. Good lacing. Sweetish, floral, citrusy and spicy hop aroma with a light malt note in the background and a hint of a cardboard overtone. Orange peel? as it warms. Flavour is fruity hops on a malty background. Hint of cardboard. Light metallic note as it warms. Mild to medium bitter finish, lingering, along with a grassy hop note followed by an apple note. Light milky note as it warms. Overall okay; while it does have some hints of it, itís nowhere near as ícardboardyí as other gluten free beers Iíve tried. 13.06.17.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 12 oz bottle. I picked this up today because it seemed interesting. I had no idea what it was. The Widmer logo is on it, but itís faded and hard to see on the label. Itís like the brewers were purposely trying to distance this from their normal lineup. The slogan on the label "It isnít just what we took out, itís what we left in" intrigued me. I figured it was either gluten-free, alcohol-free, or something else entirely. It certainly doesnít say what it is on the label. Once I got to researching it, I realized it was indeed gluten-free. Anyway, aroma consists of piney hops and bready malt and doesnít smell rancid like most gluten-free beers. That being said, itís not particularly memorable for your average APA. It pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing off-white head that leaves some lace. Taste is remarkably good for a gluten-free beer, but itís completely average for an American Pale Ale. It starts out lightly sweet and finishes with a little bitterness. Carbonation is minute and the body is medium to thin. Itís very smooth and drinkable. The best thing about this beer is that it will be the first thing I reach for if I ever develop an allergy to gluten. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
12oz bottle poured into glass. Omission just canít seem to sell me on any beers they make. This one is like a hoppy amber but with less flavor and character. Very bland and flavorless. gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 22, 2014
Wow, my first good gluten free beer. I wouldnít have guessed this is gluten free. Lasting citrus and floral hoppy. Thanks Tony. Muggus69 (2438) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2017
355mL bottle from Bucket Boys. BB 11.11.17
Pale copper body, small white head.
Malty sort of nose - toffee, biscuit, subtle floral hop.
Stodgy body, carbonation somewhat low.
Once again, malt sort of drives the body - toasted bread crust, browned caramel, touch of diacetyl, hops take a backseat despite the premise of hops - cooked citrus I guess - feels a bit oxidised overall, odd bitterness.
Probably one of the better gluten free/reduced beers Iíve come across - not nearly hoppy enough though. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle, I feel they should make this more clear this is a gluten free beer, it could be the account for the mediocre beer, I wasnt big on this one, it has a nice hoppy aroma, it has a strange mouth feel, a ruf finish, overall it is some what drinkable, likely wouldnt have again
