2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Initial wetness morphs into sour mash with an almost vomit-inducing finish. Very nasty stuff. Rated 4/5/10

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep clear garnet with thin mocha head. The aroma is pungent with bold dark fruity esters, some chemical alcohol notes, licorice and musty dewy fruitiness. The taste is as bold and sweet as the aroma with dark sugar coated fruitiness then becoming somewhat like red wine and tannin dryness. I also get a sugar porridge type sensation thatís mild and muted. Body seems really thin considering the level of sweetness in this beer.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), with notes of brown sugar and overripe banana. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Could pass as a real brown ale, though certainly not a great one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.)

I know, I know, this is a specialty product for those who cannot enjoy beer made with the gluten-rich traditional ingredients. Well, I’d be switching to wine pretty quickly if this is the best that is available for those with celiac disease! Nice appearance-- clear mahogany, but no lasting head of any kind. Aroma is of sour apple juice. Flavour is of green apples, wilted leaf lettuce, and some brown sugar (although the brown sugar is quite subtle), The finish is astringent, with a tea-like tannic acid quality. Thin and watery. It gets points for at least trying, but really this is pretty aweful stuff.

Not the worst gluten free beer but there isnít anything too tasty about this one. Thin with some dark fruit notes.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Bottle from pechams. Aroma is sweet candy sugar, yeasty molasses and hints of fresh spice, corriander maybe. Taste is a similar bag of tricks thin boy but very dirnkable. The best yet from greens.
