I have never needed gluten free till this year, this is my first try of gluten free beer. I enjoyed it completely. backell (1) - USA - MAY 2, 2007 does not count
As a person with Celiac disease I wanted to add my own review to this beer. Understand that this was my first beer in four years. Gluten-free beer is the only alternative I have as neither wheat nor barley is going to be doing me any favors. Hence, my ratings are on a "GF scale". When you live GF a while you learn that not everything is going to taste the same. The main thing I was hoping for is a beer that really tasted like beer and I found one. I was actually surprised how MUCH it tasted like beer as I was very skeptical. Anyway, thanks to AB for making a national GF beer. schne361 (18) - - APR 27, 2014
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 This is my favorite gluten free beer, in the sense that it tastes the most like a normal beer. It is a dark brown color with a nice foamy head. It tastes like a lager with hints of wheat, hops, and malt. DeppityBob (28) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Different. Reminds me a little of cherries. Nice hoppiness, a bit thin, sweet, a lingering superlight molasses-y flavor. It’s crisp and refreshing. That is is an A-B beer AND has flavor is amazing, though it doesn’t have a lot of substance. I’d drink it again, and I’m not wheat-intolerant. Slipstream (2651) - USA - JUN 18, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 Thanks to Greg for this. So Redbridge is another stealth release from Anheuser Busch. Now that is a surprise! Amber pour and a fluffy head. Good aroma of citrus, malt, and something unusual, the sorghum perhaps. Flavor of fruits, rice, and cereal. This is an excellent choice for those who are avoiding gluten. A much better than expected brew, and the best thing I have had from A-B.

Unlike any beer I have had before - not radically different, but distinctive since it is brewed using sorghum. The flavor has fruity undertones and a nice jazzy feel, no bitterness. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2010

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 The aroma is light and mildly sweet with a faint perfumed soap aroma. Those good soaps that are just for show mind you, not the ones you wash your butt with. It actually smells of in a non-beer kind of way. The bosy is a light amber/copper color with a diminishing white head that starts a thumb thick, fades, but then holds. As pale lagers go it looks pretty inviting.
That perfumey sweetness is there int he fore. It tastes a little like patchouli and potpurri mix. Yes, I have tasted both. It finishes with a sort of apple and flower finish. Has a moderately biting carbonation and detactable hops. This is not a bad beer at all. I actually think this puppy would sell well if marketed as a ladies (or guys) who hate beer. That being said....it’s good for what it is. My raped tastebuds are screaming for more. mattd017 (51) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Wow... A-B really actually took time to come up with this one. Pours a cloudy brown, with red hints. Has a good thick white head and a ring around the outside of the glass maintains through every pull on the beer. Lacks any lacing, which is dissapointing. Has a sweet, malty scent. Nice fruit flavor, with slight hop bite and something else in the ending. Could be Sorghum. I am incredibly impressed. Much better than that Red Hook crap A-B tries to sell as real beer.
As I scan through other ratings I feel many people see the A-B crest on the label and automatically feel they CANNOT rate it above a 2.5. Perhaps I am rating it high, as it is made by A-B, and it is drinkable... Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 24, 2013
NOt bad, something new. Little bit incipit and quite soft but nice to drink and taste it too.
