I'm going to do this brew on Tuesday. How long did you wait before you racked?

I left the beer on the fruit in secondary for 30 days.

I sampled this beer last night. First impressions were favorable. Carbonation was good. The appearance was excellent. The beer was clear with a subtle reddish tint from the strawberries. The taste was much better than anticipated. Strawberry was certainly in the forefront, but not overpowering. There was some sweetness after the fruit, but the carbonation kept it from being cloying. Clean finish. I am going to give this another month of bottle conditioning before I do a side by side comparison of the real fruit vs. flavor extract version of this batch. I have some Tweason'Ale still, so I might do a comparison of all three beers.

All in all I am pleased with how this has turned out. I have not had much luck with GF fruit beers in the past. This is the best one yet. While it is not a exact clone of DFH's Tweason'Ale, it certainly shares the major similarities and the recipe is wide open for interpretations and modifications.

Good luck on brewing yours. I would love to hear how it turns out!

I am pretty sure Sam Calagione gives the basic recipe in this interview: http://thebrewingnetwork.com/shows/824 .

I transferred to secondary on the strawberries two days ago. It's got a nice red tint already. I tasted it and it's great so far. I'll be using buckwheat honey in more of my gluten free brews.

Nice! The real fruit definitely gives the beer a nice color. How long do you think you are going to stay in secondary?

15 days. I need to have it ready for my end of the world party. Maybe I'll cut it down to 12 so I get more keg carb time.

So whats the update on the fruit vs. extract? Also someone post a photo of the beer when done. I think this might be the next beer on my list.

Mine has been kegged for a few days and man, it's fantastic. I'm hosting an End of the World party tomorrow night and am going to unveil it there.

The strawberries were solid white when I took them out. It added a lot of color to the beer. I'll post tasting notes after tomorrow.

The real fruit is the way to go. Better flavor, and nicer appearance. The strawberry extract flavor isn't bad, just pales in comparison. Using real strawberries certainly put this beer in line with Tweason'Ale. I am going to brew this again, but as a 5 gallon batch. I am thinking of using 10 lbs of strawberries in secondary and will probably change the yeast. Also, I will leave out the agave nectar and up the buckwheat honey by one pound.

Just tried one of these beers and was hopeful given the quality beers dog fish usually puts out but it was awful....I poured out most o the beer.

I can't see how anyone would want to clone this beer....way worse than redbridge

Very light no flavor at all and an awful after taste
