What the brewers say

“We use light-bodied millet, brown rice, sweet potatoes, molasses, and American hops. This beer has aromas of hops and sweet potatoes with a sweet grain flavor and a clean finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Hops aroma up front, with notes of lemongrass, grapefruit rind, lemon zest, pineapple, and a bit of barnyard. Light sweetness (comes across as cane sugar) coming through in the end; very wine-like aroma with hints of Riesling and pear.”

Flavor: “Tart lemon-like notes up front, accentuated by the dryness and high carbonation. Finish is a bit on the bitter side; low hops bitterness and no noticeable hops flavor. This beer has a pear and cider-like character with a tart drying quality and cidery tart green-apple notes.”

Overall: “A dry, crisp gluten-free beer with a lot of citrus character and a decent amount of bitterness. High car- bonation accentuates the bitterness and dry finish. The sweetness and tartness of this beer create a nice balance—it tastes of a cider, with lots of tree fruits, sugars, and very low hops presence.”
