500 ML poured into a Chimay Chalice. A - Pours very dark with garnet highlights. Cola brown head that sinks into an active ceiling. S - Cherries, some tartness, apples, berries, sweet candy, perfume wine. T - Cherries, vinous oxidation, tart dark fruit, subtle Christmas-like spice, dried orchard apples, dry vinous alcohol thins out the flavors on the finish. M - Aggressive carbonation fills the mouth with bubbles and thins out the flavors, hindering them from developing. Itís like a sparkling red wine with some yeast thrown in. Not as good as Quest and not a great Dubbel but it has a huge disadvantage being gluten free. For some reason it reminds me of Christmas. I could drink this while decorating the Christmas tree. Serving type: bottle 10-26-2011

Looks like everyone before me got old bottles. Well, kudos to my stellar bottle shop for getting a fresh batch. This was poured into a chalice because I thought it was a dubbel as it says it is on the label. The appearance was a dark brown color with a thin quarter finger white foamy head that concaves and doesnít really leave any lacing. The smell has some cinnamon, Belgian yeast and spice, clove, light chocolate, not bad at all. The taste takes those previously mentioned flavors and shakes them up to come across fairly nice. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body with a decent sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation seems to be a tad sharper than expected and it comes across fairly watery on the finish. Overall, dubbel or specialty grain, whatever it is, its not bad at all, but then again, Iím drinking two weeks old according to my bottle shop manager.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Odd aroma that reminds me of spreading mulch in the yard. All dirty and vegetal. Muddy brown appearance to match. Weird sweet fruity taste, has a cola feel to it. Almost artificial. This is reflected in the body as well, which prickly and sticky though not viscous. I don not hate it, just not what is expected.

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Smells like a dishsoap washed dog that previously ran through a compost pile. Notes of cherry coke and red wine. Pretty bad, one of the worst beers Iíve ever tried.

Split with Tom. Courtesy of Tom. Of course this guy bought it. Allegedly on my account, but we all know that Tom just loves DPFs. Pours mahogany with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is cherry, plum vinegar. Maybe some fig. Taste is cherry chloraseptic. Not great but not terrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Bottle split with Pat. Pours a deep brown with thin, diminishing tan head and spots of lace. Aroma of sherry wine vinegar, plum, sour cherry, brown sugar. Watery, light body, seltzer-like. Notes of brown sugar, light fruit. Greenís ales do not contain anything drinkable

the commercial description reads: Ale made from millet, rice, buckwheat and sorghum. And that is the problem in a nutshell. Pours a transparent dark color with an excess of bubbles. Looks like Coke in a glass. Has some flavor notes resembling dark beer (chocolate, earthy) but also a medicinal sweetness and a strange finish. Sort of light on the palate- just really trying to be something it is not. Guess on the gf days I will just go with wine. Although Omission is pretty decent for gf.

Bottle. Pours dark, with an ample, lasting head. These GF beers always look like the real deal. Aroma is also very accurate for the style, hinting of sweeter malt. Flavor doesnít meet the expectations based on looks and aroma, but it fits reasonably well in the style, though it would never be considered good for the style. But I found it to be enjoyable, and totally felt like I was drinking real beer. I actually have been impressed with the three GF beers from this brewer that Iíve tried. Well, done, and glad itís available.

Not the worst gluten free ale Iíve tried. Itíll do in a bind. Rather flat and too sweet.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a pilllowy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma has an odd meaty character to it with hints of chocolate. Flavor has some light coffee notes, a hint of molasses, some off-putting medicinal notes - due to the lack of gluten Iím sure. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not the most unflavorful thing I have ever tasted and could stomach this if I was allergic to gluten

Bottle at Patrick's mansion in the mansion backyard with Alex sophia patrick and Steven. Pours brown. Medium lacing. Aroma of apple big malt leather, great. Taste apple sugar cane brandy licorish. Finish very long and savory.
