27/675)  Home:  Patio Saison by Beau's All Natural Brewery of Ontario:  *1/2;  Wild Oats #19 from Beau's;  brewed with organic dried bitter orange peel and organic elderflower;  the nose is yeasty with notes of orange;  orange is very prominent through to the finish;

28/676)  Home:  Stereovision by Flying Monkeys of Ontario:  *;  described as an "American Krystal Wheat";  sweet bready nose;  the taste is mellow with just a touch of hops towards the finish;  I have to admit, from this brewer it is somewhat of a disappointment;

29/677)  Fionn MacCool's, Brampton:  Bard's Gold - The Original Sorghum Malt Beer by Bard's Tale Beer of Minnesota, U.S.A.:  *1/2;  this was a bottle;  a gluten-free beer;  while I found it unchallenging and inoffensive it was refreshing;  notes of apple; 

I'm not sure if I really wish to pursue the debate as to whether it can be called a beer or not in the absence of barley or other grains.  I'm just happy that as a result people who might not otherwise be able to enjoy a beer, or beer-like beverage, can now do so.
