2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at AleFest Columbus (06/27/09): The beer pours a deep mahogany color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and spice. Medium body with flavors of almost sour fruit and sherry, plus some off spices. The finish is tart fruit with a spice and yeast aftertaste. Not very enjoyable overall.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not the worst gluten free beer but there isn’t anything too tasty about this one. Thin with some dark fruit notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle celebrating that the Hammers still have a premiership status! This double dark beer pours a deep mahogany red-tinged body supported by a beige, frothy head with lots of bubbles (I’m forever blowing bubbles in the air!) and some lacing. Sweet rummy aroma. Rich taste of dark berries and fruits (plums and prunes) - almost vinous. A spicy touch towards the end. Perhaps a bit too sweet and one-dimensional. Medium bodied and easy to drink (13.05.2007).

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle... Very dark brew (hazy orange when held up to light) with a small, fizzy, white head. Smells like sake and dark fruit. Light-bodied with extremely fizzy carbonation. Tastes like bad, cloyingly sweet sake. Finishes sweet and watery.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 it’s way too sweet. Thanks Yngwie!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a deep brown, clear, with a thin beige head. Plum and prune, deep dark stone fruit and caramel malt. Sweet, spicy caramel and sweet phenolic yeast. Boozy, but not too hot. Long sweet dark fruit finish. For what this is, this is very good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I didn’t know buckwheat wasn’t wheat. Oh well. Had a mini Greens tasting. I’d passed for a while cause these are 6.50 for 500 ml of gluten free...weirdness, as it turns out. His "Dubbel" really fell into no style. Looked like a Dubbel but had an odd sweetness above hints of belgian yeast and an even odder sour note that wasn’t enough to be cool - just enough to be off."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring at Get Real New York. Deep brown pour. The aroma is quite sweet and plummy. Lots of plums and a bit of sweet rummy flavour. There’s a bit of light molasses. The yeast has a lovely bit of estery character as well. Pretty solid actually.
