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

dnstone (2139) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 13, 2010
A sweet wine-alcohol aroma. Deep brown color with off-white head. Sweet grape and grain with an alcohol finish. I have never had a descent gluten-free beer before this. Notes: Beer Advocate Belgian Beer Fest (Boston) í09

marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Pours dark brown with a massive tan head that doesnít last long. There is a skunky dark malt aroma and an even skunkier sour malt flavor. This doesnít taste like any other dubbel I have consumed, but I guess it is a reasonable alternative for those who require gluten-free beer.

mybrainhurts (352) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Smells somewhat dubbel like.... grapes, tart green apples, and wine. Fizzy, grape pop flavors. Acidic, tart and alcoholic stomach turning. I understand this is missing major "beer" ingredients, and it shows. I feel sorry for the gluten free crowd, really do. This is rank.

poisoneddwarf (1711) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 23, 2010
500 ml bottle. The aroma is interesting (for a beer), but terrible. Smells of bourbon, brown sugar gone bad, age. Pours brown with a thick head, nice lacework. My first impression after the first drink: weird!?@#. What a funky beer. Sour. Carbonation is high. If I ever develop an allergy to gluten, I suppose I could get used to this. Letís hope that never happens, though. Itíd be hard.

brenn79 (1519) - Idaho, USA - JAN 23, 2010
16.9 oz. bottle- Pours black with a decent head that dissipates immediately, the aroma is brown sugar and whiskey, not bad. The flavor is better than expected although not great. The only other gluten free beer iíve had is Redbridge so this is excellent compared. The flavor is bubbly like Champagne, weird and somewhat drinkable. Next up, Greenís Quest Tripel.

mike_77 (3119) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2009
Very dark brown colour with light brown fizzy head. Quite a citric aroma. Flavour has an acidic edge but an overall sweet feel. It doesnít look like or taste like beer.

saxo (14044) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are caramel, malt, nuts, chocolate and fruits.

Drake (8546) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
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.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2009
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.
