Beer, Cider, & Sake 16

Gluten-free beer

We recently learned my wife is gluten intolerant, which is a shame because she loves good beer.

So far we've tried:

New Grist
St. Peter's Sorgham Ale
New Planet Tread Lightly
Estrella Daura
Green's Amber, Tripel, and Dubbel
Dogfish Head Tweason Ale

The ones we've liked best so far are:

New Grist - doesn't really taste like beer, but more akin to a cider without being sweet. If you don't think of it as beer it's quite good.

Brunehaut - Pretty tasty, if a little unusual tasting. This might be my favorite so far.

Green's Amber - Best of the Green's line, IMO. The other two are really sweet, but this one has some decent bitterness.

Estrella Daura - By far the most like real beer, since they use a malt that's had the gluten somehow removed.

The others in the above list ranged from mediocre to downright undrinkable.

So, are there any I missed? Any gems anyone knows of that I should seek out?
