Deschutes Brewery is currently serving a gluten-free wit beer. Even better news is that my server informed me last night that they have several different kinds of gluten-free beers that they have been trying out lately. They only have one on tap at a time for obvious practical reasons, but it sounds like they might be rotating them out more frequently now than they were over the summer and fall.
Unlike the previous Deschutes beer that I reviewed here, which I called a wit beer but was probably intended to be a hefeweisen style, this one actually is a wit-style beer. This new wit beer gives the same first impression that most of their gluten-free beers do: the first sip, it tastes like normal beer. Then, you get that subtle hint of the metallic aftertaste that is so common in beers made from sorghum. However, in the Deschutes beers the metallic flavor is usually much more toned down than in, say, Redbridge. This gluten-free wit beer is very good and probably warrants another try. It's always a pleasure to have some variety in my beer consumption - that's hard to come by for the gluten-free.
Oh, and by the way, they also had a tasty gluten-free (crustless) creme brulee cheesecake.
Have you tried the wit beer now pouring at Deschutes or any of the new gluten-free beers they have had on tap recently? Which is your favorite?
