"Gluten Free". Looks and pours just like a Coca-Cola, including the different kind of extra-poofy "head". Definitely has pretty much the right dubbel aroma, but is not quite right (though Iíve had worse non-gluten-free!). Flavor is OK, better than expected. A bit thin in the mouthfeel department. Overall, so-so, but if you couldnít drink gluten, this might be a good choice.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2010
500 ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark brown, almost black pour with a big fluffy tan head. Aroma is very much like a standard Belgian dubbel but a little toned down. Notes of caramel, dark fruit. Flavor pretty much the same, only much more toned down. Tastes pretty good, just not too intense of a flavor and the finish doesnít really bring very much. Much better than what I expected though.

llcooldave (1065) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Pours a cloudy chocolate brown color. Aroma is a surprising sweet & creamy with a touch of chocolate somewhere in the background. Flavor is hard to place; creamy citrus I want to say... Overall, itís better than I expected. Very easy to drink.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark red amber with a light beige head. Nose is sweet with some caramel and fruit. Taste is sweet with more fruit and caramel, somewhat watery for a dubbel. This wouldnít be my top choice, but itís OK and would be a good choice for people who canít have gluten.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Rather dark brown with red and a thick uneven tan head. Nose is complex fruit with both citrus, dark, and passion, molasses. No malt is tasted. That must be a gluten free thing. Molasses, again that complex fruit, sourness, brown sugar, caramel. I am thankful to be able drink beer with glutens. This falls short of other dubbels.

BB 9/16/09 Pours medium mahogany w/tan head. Large bubbles disappeared quickly Very sweet nose. Tastes like cheap spoiled wine-hope this is due to the age-this oneís a drain pour-will try a fresh one out of curiosity

rubbishystuff (1795) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2010
It is really unfair to compare this to other regular beer, it would be better to compare this to other gluten free beer. Gluten free beer does take some getting used to but then it is different grains. Many adjunct lagers taste weird because of the corn. There is a thin sour/tart flavor present but Iíve detected that in most g-free beer. Iíve tried about 6 different gluten free beers and felt this was the best. Serving: Bottle

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Caramel aroma with brown sugar notes. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Citrus notes with dark fruits and caramel flavors. Slightly thin but has a nice dry finish.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2010
500mL Bottle -- Well this ones a little different. Pours deep dark reddish-brown with a very bubbly head light tan. Aromas of grape, fig, some chocolate, caramel, and yeast. Medium body, pretty tart with some heavier carbonation. Gets points for trying something different but is a little disjointed.

Initial wetness morphs into sour mash with an almost vomit-inducing finish. Very nasty stuff. Rated 4/5/10
