The beer pours clear and golden in color. There is a half-inch of white, foamy head. The aroma is grain, citrus, fruit. The taste follows the aromas, with a mild, pleasant citrus fruitiness. The beer drinks smooth and easy with almost no bitterness. This is very pleasant, nothing wrong with it, but just not a lot to say about it either. I would drink it again.

New Belgium Glutiny Golden Ale
This 5.2% ABV golden ale is from New Belgium Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. It is part of their new Glutiny line of low gluten beers. Gluten free beers used to use substitutes for the gluten containing grain. The new trend appears to be gluten "reduced" beers that use gluten containing grain and then use a method to remove as much of the gluten as possible. There is also a pale ale in the line.
