Brasseurs Sans Gluten 1
Katy and Sasha are the contributors for Ottawa Beer Events! They have distinctly different palates and in this segment they go head-to-head tasting American Pale Ale by Brasseurs Sans Gluten.
The LCBO lists five gluten-free brews and they all have a pretty similar crisp pilsner-style profile. How boring! If I was a celiac I'd probably switch to wine so I wouldn't be pilsner-ed to death.
Don't worry though my gluten-free friends, although it hasn't hit Ottawa yet, Brasseurs Sans Gluten from Montreal is available just across the bridge in Quebec beer stores. And no, they aren't offering a pilsner, but a Red, a surprisingly hoppy American Pale Ale and even a Belgian Double!
When I popped the American Pale Ale the copper-coloured brew had wonderful tropical notes, citrus zest and hints of sweet brown sugar. The hops come through on the taste with a sweet citrus bitterness followed by caramel, grain and a dry finish.
While Glutenberg American Pale Ale is a celebration for celiacs wanting to indulge in a brew, it's also simply a good beer to drink.
It seems like Gluten Allergies are becoming more common, which is why I was happy to review Brasserie Sans Gluten's Glutenberg American Pale ale for my gluten-free friends.
