1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very dark brown colour with light brown fizzy head. Quite a citric aroma. Flavour has an acidic edge but an overall sweet feel. It doesn’t look like or taste like beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 mL bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark ruby tinted brown color with a large brown frothy head. Aroma of grainy malts, brown sugar and a tart note. Really a faint aroma. Taste is tart cherries, cola, grain, caramel, leafy notes. Medium bodied. A decent effort, especially considering this is gluten free, but as far as dubbels go, this sucks.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark brown, opaque, with a brown head that collapses quickly. Aroma is initially metallic, then turning to dark fruit, mostly prunes, wheat aroma despite the lack therof. The chocolatey malts are nice, the other flavors are a strange mix of raspberry wine cooler, cheap pink wine, artificial sweetener. Could be worse, but still not good. Pretty nice spritzy yet soft mouthfeel, despite the harsh chemical finish. A really strange brew, a loser overall, but vastly better yet than the tripel (Greens Quest). Overall, fair plus.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Fat Cat, Sheffield.
Pours clear brown with a small, frothy, beige head. Aroma has quite a lot of chemical notes, apple and lightly spicy notes. High carbonation, very thin. Flavour is weirdly spicy, green apples, light sweetness, vinious. Weird and thin.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 50 ml. bottle with an expiration date of 16-09-09. The pour is a mahogany brown with tinges of ruby red and a huge foamy beige head. This is an extremely aromatic beer with powerful scents of dark malts and sorghum syrup. The taste is not quite as exciting as the aroma and look, which is the perfect example of the old adage "beauty is only skin deep." The flavor is hoppy enough but the alcohol taste is stronger than the 7% ABV would imply.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle from the Bayou. Pours a wonderful picture; a deep ruby hue, very dark with a large light brown head. The aroma though was initially off-putting; it reminded me of rubber cement, or some odd oily and chemical like notes. The flavor was similar; a hot mess of glue and alcohol. But somehow, this beer wasn’t so bad. Some fruity notes, sorghum (which produces much of the glue-like flavor). Not bad, weird and not my thing though.
