Beer of the Week 42 Tweason’ale

Dogfish Head’s Tweason’ale

From the bottle:

A gluten-free sorghum-based ale brewed with strawberries and buckwheat honey.

From my notes:

Strawberry blonde color bordering on light pink with a one inched, cream colored  head with fine bubbles. Smells of fruit, grape, strawberries, and honey. Tastes like berries, and something that I can’t identify, I’m thinking it is the sorghum? It’s not pleasant. This is a sweet beer. Almost a wine cooler. Dry finish.

Almost looks like a crappy rosé, huh?

I bought this beer out of curiosity mostly. A gluten free, sorghum based beer? I’ll try that! Except, the beer isn’t that good. The problem with going out to the edge is that, sometimes, you fall off. Strawberry is a good match with beer, as is honey but they’d do better in a beer that is made from either wheat or barley.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
