A dead ringer for Cherry 7-Up.

Smells of cherry grenadine mixed with sweet corn.

Light and fruity. Corn forward with some light raspberry.

Not bad if it's a hot day and you have Celiac disease, if your GI situation is healthy there are better raspberry wheat options.

A-Pours the color of sparkling apple cider with no head, just lots of tiny bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

S-Sorghum, sweet raspberry. Smells like extract. Hope this isn't as sweet as the aroma indicates.

T/M-First thing. This beer is in dire need of carbonation. Mouthfeel like a limp handshake, and that just makes a bad first impression. The flavor profile is interesting, if not a bit sloppy. Tastes like Captain Crunch (with crunchberries), blended with a cheap corn lager. If I tasted this blind with no prior information, I'd probably think it was Blue Moon mixed with Magners, or some other cheap cider. The finish is slightly metallic, a recurring theme in my experience with sorghum based beers.

O-There really aren't enough good options out there for people who need gluten free. That being said, you can do better than this. The Green's line, or the St. Peter's Sorghum are both superior to this.

A nice, dry pink champagne.

Quite beautiful to look at, in a globe on a white countertop. Essentially no head, and it really does look just like a pale champagne with nice bubbles on the bottom and a hint of the skins.

Doesn't actually taste bad, you just have to recallibrate your taste expectations. I like the many flavors of malt, so a beer made from corn syrup doesn't do much for me. Quite tart, which maybe has something to do with the raspberry puree. The touch of fruit flavor is quite nice. Quite flat in the mouth after the first couple of sips. A bitter tangy aftertaste which doesn't taste particularly hoppy, but could be the contribution of the orange peel as well.

A gluten free beer...my first one.
Pours a light, dull off red/pink. Looks clean and crisp, but not rich. Small head was expected.

Very faint berry aroma, and light biscuit, but a bit more earthy.

Nothing bad about the flavors, just not great. Raspberry is light, and for a pilot beer this is expected, too. Earthy and raw tastes. Again, nothing strong. Very light.

Easy drinking. Could perhaps replace pink lemonade during the summer. Good option for those gluten intollerant.

22 oz bomber poured into a tulip shaped glass.

Light pink in color and clear. Like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Small filmy head that slowly dissipates. Little carbonation. Unmalted grain aroma with some berry notes. Crisp up front with very light fruit and some grain. This continues through the middle and everything suddenly disappears in the end. The only thing I get at the finish is a bit of mineral qualities. Dull cough syrup aftertaste. Barely present, but still there. Some bitterness appears on the back as the beer warms.

An odd beer. All was well, albeit a bit boring, until the end. I was expecting more flavor, be it raspberry or malt, but everything faded rapidly after a reasonable start. From the website, it's brewed with corn and sorgham, which may explain the flavor profile.
