PostSubject: Glutenator   Tue Aug 07, 2012 7:26 pm

Ok, I gotta start off saying Epic is my favorite Utah brewery and I always talk them up to my out of state friends and relatives and quite a few of the people that I've befriended at the GABF.

I finally got around to trying the Glutenator this past Friday and I got to say I didn't care much for it. I haven't tried any other gluten-free beers on the market but I've heard mixed reviews of the sorghum versions from most breweries, so this seems to be a style that's still developing. I thought it was kind of hard to describe...there was a slight sourness to it and a flavor that I couldn't quite place. It's probably just due to the fact that it's lacking traditional grains and that's what I'm used to. I guess if I had celiac disease I'd probably be willing to give it another try but safe to say I'm very thankful I don't and that I'm able to enjoy Epic's other fantastic offerings.

Malted barley is beer. When its not there it's just not the same.

Don't know if you read my post from yesterday, but Wasatch is using a process that strips most of the gluten from barley in a new beer.

Yep I did., it's what actually reminded me to comment on Glutenator. Wasatch's entry sounds intriguing enough that I might have to check it out.
