Gold Medal Winner
Brunehaut Amber Ale
Brunehaut is one of two (read about their blond ale here) new gluten free beers available as an import in the US market coming from Belgium.
Brunehaut Amber won a gold medal at the 2011 US Open Beer Championships. Gluten free beer is a relatively new venture for Brunehaut and is made with the same tradition of their former brews.
Today is all about Brunehaut gluten free Amber Ale. The beer has a strong yeasty aroma with a slight citrus hint. The beer pours with a tall, off white head that fills the glass at first and dissipates to a thin head. The beer is a cloudy reddish amber beer with lots of carbonation. It has a slight caramel flavor with some citrus, spice and slight woody flavor. It is a medium bodied gluten free beer with a very slightly sweet after taste.
This is a good gluten free amber beer and excellent to pair with a hamburger, hotdog or bar-b-que. A definite thumbs up for just about any meal needing a great gluten free beer. This is a gluten free beer that I would certainly drink again.
**One thing to keep in mind is this is, according to the importer this is a 5 ppm beer; for most folks this will be just fine. For those of you that are more sensitive, like my wife, you will want to proceed with caution.**
