2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml long neck bottle, bought at an organics food store. Curious to see what a gluten free beer tastes like, also made of organically grown ingredients. ABV 5%. Poured into a lager glass.
Colour is yellow golden, slighty hazy. On top of it, sits a whitem soapy foam, two fingers tall with good retention, leaving light lacing behind and a somewhat thick film on the beer’s surface. Lots of activity in the glass too. So far so good.
Aroma now.. is weird. Smells like some kind of medicine, but there are also traces of banana and bubblegum aroma on the background. Bottom line, not very pleasant.
Taste is quite similar to the smell, same medicinal flavour, like antiacterial soap or something. But if the taste was somewhat bearable, the taste is gross.
Very thin body and very light carbonation.
Conclusion, I am happy and thankfull to God that I don’t have a gluten allergy and I can enjoy all the normal beers. It is my first gluten free beer, I take the style into consideration and the people that is intended for and I am still very close to drain pour this one.

licht goudgeel met een witte kraag. Geur en smaak vallen erg tegen moutig en erwtensoep. Nee dit is hem niet voor mij

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a very light yellow with good carbonation and a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, almost like apple cider. Body is very light giving it a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is odd, it’s sweet yet sour with a cream corn and paste like thing going on. It’s just bad, I can’t truly find the words to describe this flavor but its bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampled from bottle at home. Hazy pale golden with almost no head. Smells of weird chemical candy. Grassy, gluey, Sinterklaasschuimpjes, bitter rubber and raw beans. Medium sweet and quite a bitter follow up. Under medium body, prickly carbonation and a dirty bitter finish. Quite terrible.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is an interesting gluten free beer. It does not taste like ordinary beer but is kind of unusual in a good way. It’s got a grainy quality to it, almost roasty. It’s a little sweet and fruity w/ kind of an oily texture. Nobody will confuse this for a fine pils but it is drinkable regardless.

Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Max. Clear pale yellow with almost no head. Aroma of cereals, some apples. Pretty bland flavor, slightly sweetish, with a sourish hint, with cereals and overripe apples. Watery and slightly oily mouthfeel. Strange.

Pours golden yellow with small off-white head. Aroma is malts, sour notes, cat piss, apple. Taste is sourish malts, green apple, some grain, light copper, sour pie. Not very interesting, but easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl returnable bottle. This is extremely fresh for an import less than 3 months old and stored in cold storage for pretty much its whole life once it was. I think this beer is nice, it has a tropical fruitiness that comes seeminlgly out of nowhere, there is a hint of medicinal millet qualities but this is one of th ebest gluten free beers ive had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours from bottle pale clear yellow with minimal head. Taste is medium sweet and palate is lively, light body, slick, with long finish. Aroma citrus and grass. At first sip, feel a little overwhelmed by the intensity of flavor but then it grows on you. Quite a nice organic beer.
