I am surprised to hear that they cannot call this a gluten-free beer "...to comply with Health Canada's labelling rules that say anything called a beer must contain at least some barley or wheat." Messagère and Messagère Red Ale, both made in Quebec are labelled as gluten-free beers. Did Quebec separate from Canada already?
'New Grist' was fantastic,I don't remember where its from but I have found it in better LCBO's. I did not like the Messagère brand. It just tasted like soy sauce, that was carbonated. I know, it sounds odd, but I made other people try it, in case my taste buds were off.(The face my husband made was just hilarious but telling) Also it was 4 bucks more for a 6-pack than the New Grist.
On that note, considering all the varying flavours of beer/ale/lagers, not really a surprise that in trying 2 different gluten free 'beers' that I didn't like one of them :-)So try for yourself, you might love either.
I always liked Strongbow, but you have to be into the cider type flavour.

I haven't tried the Gluten Free that's made in Ontario, I haven't seen any anywhere. My local LCBO stocks New Grist, which isn't bad really. I prefer wine or spirits now though.
