Notes/Commercial Description:
For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey.

We believe health-conscious beer drinkers and the millions of Americans who suffer from Celiac disease can cut back on gluten while relishing the distinction and drinkability of this very special brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a nice golden-orange. Lots of bubbles. Small foam head, with very pour retention. No lacing.

Smell: A nice burst of aromas here. Definitely the strawberry up front. Hints of rhubarb. Strong scent of apples and honey as well.

Taste: Strawberries, apples, honey are the first things noticed. Upon further sips, there's some grape, and a little bit of pear. Honestly, an incredibly underwhelming taste, especially after the great aroma. The carbonation almost overpowers the taste at time. Despite the multitude of fruits in the taste, it still manages to be surprisingly flat and uninspiring.

Mouthfeel: Extremely light bodied. Could've benefitted from being a little more syrupy. Decent amount of carbonation. Very watery. Again, I find myself going back to the word "uninspiring".

Overall: A disappointing entry from one of my favorite breweries. I knew going into this it wasn't going to be the best, judging by its ratings. I've had a few gluten free beers, and a few made with sorghum, and those weren't great. But this one....disappointing. No reason to try this one.

Color- dark apple juice. No head.

Aroma- strawberry cider.

Taste- Starts with strawberry and granny smith apple and earth tones, mild honey sugars present in the mid-body, finishing with a subdued strawberry and grassy flavor with hint of pear cider. Bottle says "a gluten free sorghum-based ale with strawberries & buckwheat honey." Perhaps I'm partial to this unique beer because of my affinity for sour ales.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 9/28/2013.
