Default New Planet Gluten Free Beer

Has anyone in the States tried this Raspberry Ale or any other New Palent Beers?

http://newplanetbeer.com/gluten-free...raspberry-ale/

Being located in Australia I doubt I would be able to access this easily so was hoping someone local could give me their opinion?

They actually arent even distributed outside of Colorado from what I remember. There is one person on this subforum who lives there though and has tried em I think.

I'm jealous, But our local Gordon Biersch brewed a GF golden lager and hopefully (if the world doesn't end) Hit is up this weekend for their tap party. Its gotta be better than the red bridge. (thats the only GF beer available in Po-Dunk SC)

My girlfriend went to CO last summer and brought me a 6er of theirs. It was pretty good, I still have 1or 2 left. I believe they were shooting for a wit type brew. If my memmory serves me correct I think it tasted a lot like st. Peters. I also remember it having that strong sorghum bite. If I still have one I'll crack it tonight and write it up.

It's brewed under contract at Fort Collins Brewery (two doors down from where I work. woo!), but the company itself is in Boulder.

Their flagship brew is a brilliantly clear and pale yellow. The head evaporates to nothing within a couple seconds of being poured. The taste is mildly hopped with that distinct sorghum tang. On the whole, I like it, and it is certainly the best GF brew I've tasted, but I've only had a few. I don't have any sort of gluten allergy.

I haven't tried their new fruit flavors that they're pushing out, but they are sold in four packs as if they were liquid gold.

yet another reason for us to brew our own.

there are only 3 GF beers available for sale near me

for example these ones:
1 bottle of red bridge =$1.50 or a 6er= $9
1 bottle of st. peters = $6.50 or a 6er= $39
1 bottle of Greens (only 1 option too)= $7.50 or a 6er= $45

i dont know about everyone else, but i can brew a 5 gal batch for $30-$50.
a 5 gal batch = 60 12oz bottles. $50/60 bottles= 83cents per brew and they always taste better than the commercial variety!

Options in Australia are pretty limited, but to be fair we have a lot smaller market than America.

I really like Billabong Brewing's GF pale ale, but at $80 a carton plus shipping, it really adds up.

The O'Briens beers seem to finish with a weird after taste that I don't get with my sorghum malt beers. These are $20 AUD a six pack.

The Schnitzer Brau are my preferred Gluten Free beer, but are $26 a six pack.

Brewing my own works out at $60 for a minimum of 24 x 750mL bottles. And I so far have loved all the beers I've made.
