jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 20, 2007
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, I’m still looking for a top notch gluten free beer.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2007
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a large dark brown head. The flavor was roasty malts and a strange mix of root beer and Dr. Pepper. The flavor was root beer and Dr. Pepper and a hint of coffee. Very odd.

Beer5000 (5058) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dark red/ brown body with a foamy beige head. Aroma is malt, yeast, dry fruit and brown sugar. Flavor is a bit sour malty with cellar notes, rather thin body but quite refreshing. Long spicy finish. A lot better than Glutaner.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dark brown colour and slightly hazy. Medium-sized off-white head. Appley aroma with some dark malts. Sweet malts at first then even more apples. Texture is oily, but the beer isn’t particularly sweet. Fusel flavours and alcohol notes do show through. Does not much resemble a beer. It is more like a root beer or a ginger ale of some sort. Some roasted characters. Notes of raisin, but no sweetness. This is a very odd beer and definitely something that I not like.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
33 cl bottle. Reddish dark brown colour with a huge light brown head. Nice aroma of yeast, dried fruit, sweetness, hints of alcohol and chocolate. Flavour of port, sweet-sour maltness, spices and ends up very light but tasty.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Bottle. Big-bubbled, vanishing tanned head over a hazed, reddish/brown body. Aroma is Christmas-spices, port and sugery dark dried fruits. Light vinous taste; slight malty and acidulous fruity with a sour twist. Slim body. A nice lightweighter.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle 0,33l. Dark brown/amber coloured. Unclear. A tanned creamy head that lasted for a while. Strong aroma of fruit and berries. A vinous.impression. Flavor in the same way with a fruity bitter finish. OK but a bit unvaried.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2007
Big brown head does not last. Dark red barely translucent body. Sweetish aroma with intense pine needle character and notes of apple and alcohol. Taste is sweet pine needles with notes of chocolate and earth. Carbonates in the mouth. Some alcohol is noticeable. Dry pine needle aftertaste. Quite good, but nothing too special. (0.33l bottle.)
