Mahogany with a nice, large head. The aroma has notes of vegetables and malt, and the veggies are found in the flavour too (celery), but also candy sugar, roasted malt, sweetness, syrup, cikory and a tart finish. The body is light and itís way too sweet. Thanks Yngwie!

Smells as a mix of vodka and octoberfest beer. Tastes better. With the price of $6 per 17 oz would avoid at all costs. You can find a LOT of Belgian beers in this price range to be much much better then Greenís
This beer should be banned from the States. Enough said - and do not try it.

Is this an abbey dubbel? Dark, quite sweet with some malt and caramel, but very low esters. Drinkable but boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Hard liquor aroma. Almost offensive, but bittersweet. So brightly red and black with a nice lacing. Flavour again is too too bitter.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from pechams. Aroma is sweet candy sugar, yeasty molasses and hints of fresh spice, corriander maybe. Taste is a similar bag of tricks thin boy but very dirnkable. The best yet from greens.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 ml. bottle, "No wheat, no barley, all natural" on the neck tag, list of allergens and ingredients not used in the brewing process and a best before date on the right side of label (05/04/09), the website lists the ABV at 6%, but my bottle states 7%, sampled in a trappist glass. Another beer from brewer Derek Green for those with celiac disease.
Reddish hued dark brown appearance, frothy, rocky tan head, good retention, fair amount of laced sticking, not a bad start, very dubbel looking.
A tart vinous nose, apples, berries and raisins, hints of clove and spices, sweet toffee, while the alcohol is fruity there is also a solvent aspect to it.
Light-ish medium body, a fizzy alcohol harshness in the palate, definitely a different tasting dubbel, a acerbic syrupy, aspartame-like sweetness that almost overwhelms any toffee maltiness, apple and grape fruitiness, just bare traces of clove and spice, the alcohol becomes more solvent and rough towards the end, dry sweet finish.
I was hoping this would better than what it is, I found this kinda of tough to drink, Iím still looking for a top notch gluten free beer.

Bottle: Pours a dark red /brown color with small off white head. Aroma of slight fruit and malt and alittle toastiness. Very malty flavors with lots of carmel and nice toasty flavors, yeasty beilgian esters and werid sort of acidity and sharpness that is out of place. a little thin too.
