Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Bottled. A deep red beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and alcohol, as well as a touch of spices, leading to a dry bitter finish.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 33 cL bottle. Pours dark brown, hazy, and with a light orange hue. Has a fully diminished off-white head. Dark chocolate aroma, light roasted. Flavour is sweet, slight chemical note. Lingering chocolate note into the finish. Mild chocolate finish too.7-3-6-3-14=3.3<br
33 cL bottle, thanks to MiP. Pours hazy light brown with a lacing light brown head. Light fruity aroma, light citrus aroma. Flavour is mild roasted malt, citrus fruity. Has a very controlled malt sweetness, somehow this lacks a bit of a full flavour. Ends flat malty and with a light citrus note. Best gluten free brew by now. 6-3-5-3-11=2.8

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle. Very mild nose, light malt presence. Light brown, cloudy. Flavor is unique. Candylike sweetness but some bread and spice too. Hard to describe. Easy and drinkable, definitely the best gluten free beer Iíve had.

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2008
I tried to approach this the way I would a wheat beer. The grain bill is completely different, so there is no reason to expect a malted barley flavor profile. That being said, I think this is an exceptionally well-made beer. The beer is a deep, clear mahogany with a ruby tint and a nice rocky head. Good aroma with yeasty, bready notes and somewhat of a port-like character. This certainly looks and smells great. A little thin on the mouthfeel, with initial flavors of orchard fruits, dark-roasted coffee, and a little citrus rind. Finishes with more coffee-like sourness than I expected which I am guessing is due to the specific grains used. This is a pretty nice, warming beverage with some flavors unexpected of a Belgian dubbel. I may be giving this extra points based on its gluten-free labeling, but when you think of the crap thatís been available to Celiac sufferers in the past, this beer really is a remarkable accomplishment. Although not up there with the best dubbels out there (like Westmalle), it still beats many of the lame American versions out there.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 16.9 oz bottle. Really nice deep brown color. The taste is super sweet, the sugary flavor reminiscent of a Caribbean sweet stout...in a bad way. Semi watery in a way, so a little drinkable...certainly doesnít make me want to try any other of the Greenís beers. Borderline disgusting pungent sorghum(?) taste dominates the aftertaste, like bad cough medicine.

Kinz (3292) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Dark amber, nice head, creamy in appearance, fades slowly. Aroma is oddly fruity, very sweet, hint of spice. Flavor is also quite fruity, quite a bit of cherry here, and a bit of yeast. Somewhat sugary. Not as hideous as it could be.

jimhilt (2403) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pours a three finger rocky light tan head that goes slowly to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Opaque black color. Nose is very slight spice. Flavor is sweet and sour orange and dark chocolate. Very smooth but something is missing here - hops?? More like a fruit drink. $5.95 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA. Label has ABV at 7.0%. Best by May 4, 2009.

bhensonb (11074) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle. Rich dark fruits and malty aroma. Dark mahogany color with a vigorous tan head. Near medium body with a moderate carbonation. The flavor is dark cherry fruit. Notes of pineapple? The whole aspect is light dark fruit, but this is a dubbel? Very pleasant. The finish is the same as the start. Most excellent. Vanilla notes seem to erupt at the very finish. Canít avoid cherry. Itís a really good drink.
