That sounds really intersting. Care to give us your tasting notes on that one?

I took 3 gallons of welchs white grape peach and 12 pounds clover honey and she really likes a glass or 2. I stopped ferment at 1.02 and its way too sweet for me but it goes over well for most others but if i do it again will back sweeten.

You won't find info on the jolly pumpkin website since it's draft only at the moment. I'll see about tasting notes. I haven't been out for a few months (snow & tax season) and it's been raining these past few weeks.
I recall it being somewhat sour/tart but not a sorghum tart. It was actually a combination of finding a local source for sorghum extract and several encounters with the belipago when I wander down main street, that rekindled my curiousity about brewing something.
I'll edit this next time I go out and I take notes. There's a few non-gluten people I know, who say out of all the beers, that it's their favorite as well.

Kind of a Wine/Mead mix there, what yeast did you use?

My wife loves Welches grape blends, was thinking of trying a Hard Pomegranate since she like that one best

Jaimi's (fiancee) favorites have been beers with fruit in them. I think that would be the case whether she was GF or not though...

Wow that's impressive. To win with a gluten free beer against gluten beers in a competition would be a great achievement.
