If you live somewhere cold, I would brew a normal GF brew, rack, set it outside for a couple of days away from sunlight to crash cool it and settle out the yeast. Rack, then add maybe .25 lbs of a honey to make a sweet honey flavoured drink.
Crash cooling provides some very interesting options in brewing.
I love my braggots and meads, but the honey will be fermented out making a lighter, and thinner tasted beer.
It all depends on what your looking for.
If your new to home brewing, check out the cider and mead sections. See if anything peaks your interest.

We are actually trying to get into meads ... I am just taking a short side trip to get some "drinkable" GF beer on hand for when my wife feels like having a beer.
I have 2 different batches of mead currently fermenting ...

I have had the opportunity to experience first hand the problems in getting the grains necessary for GF brewing .... Not only could I not find any leads (outside of a link to a company in South Africa) for malted Sorghum ... I could not find any local retailers for sorghum grain at all ...
Oh, well ... I am going to try a substitution of a grain mix for the sorghum ... I am going to use buckwheat groats, white quinoa and millet.

Check http://twinvalleymills.com/ for grains. I've bought some from here and malted them myself
