BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

12oz. Bottle

Poured into a DFH glass a very nice clean/clear dark golden color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger quick fizzy off-white head, which leaves a nice small island and some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with a nice touch of strawberries. The taste is malty, with some strawberries, slightly tart. Light/Medium body. Overall, kinda tasty, but would not buy again.

Poured into a perfect pint.

2.5 A: Clear light orange color. Fizzy white head falls as soon as it forms.

3.25 S: Smells more like a wine cooler than a beer. Strawberry and honey take me back to highschool sneaking whatever girly drinks we could find in our friends' parents' basements. It doesn't smell bad though. Indeed, it smells pretty nice. The problem is that it's in the same way that body lotion smells good.

3.0 T: The strawberry and honey also dominate the taste. This is a good thing considering how wretched most sorghum beers are. I don't really know what sorghum is supposed to taste like, but from other sorghum beers I've had, I can only conclude that it's garbage steeped in corn water. That said, this doesn't taste much like a beer. It tastes like strawberry honey water and like I already mentioned, that makes this a good sorghum beer.

2.5 M: Mouthfeel is really weak. It's a light watery body with moderate carbonation. Not much else to say.

2.75 D: Bad beer, but excellent sorghum beer. If you are a Celiac sufferer, this beer is for you. If you think gluten is the devil, stop being such a douchebag and drink a real beer.
