Dogfish Head Tweason'ale

Alcohol by volume: 6%

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione released Tweason'ale for the first time last year as a gluten-free beer, but you don't have to dodge gluten to enjoy this refreshingly sweet ale. The barley is replaced with sorghum, but that's not what a drinker tastes on the first sip. The base of this beer is strawberry, but cutting it with buckwheat honey and just a bit of molasses gives Tweason'ale a complexity more akin to a wine or blended cider. The cider comparison is fairly apt, as a research mission to a bottle shop in Portland, Ore., led a clerk to offer this alongside other, more stout ciders. It's pleasant, refreshing and doesn't sit nearly as heavily as some of its grainier summer competitors.
