jrallen34 (3488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
It pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is really bad and strong. It just smells like bad alcohol mixed with bananas. The taste is even worse. There is light banana and lots of alcohol with a spit out bittereness. Mouthfeel is poor and this is not drinkable.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish black with lacy beige head. The aroma is polyurethane and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is much the same, strong polyurethane, some raisin, a little bit of vanilla. This is pretty hard to drink.

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
Just going to take this as a beer: Dark brown colour. Some concord grape juice and molassesy accents. Sourish character with grape juice and maybe blackberry.

blutt59 (6129) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2008
bottle, amber color with a fizzy sprite flavor that finished with some fruit or caramel, not something I would drink again

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
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.

mike_77 (3632) - Breda, 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.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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

Gr0ve (2173) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dark brown colour and slightly hazy. Medium-sized off-white head. Appley aroma with some dark malts. Sweet malts at first then even more apples. Texture is oily, but the beer isn’t particularly sweet. Fusel flavours and alcohol notes do show through. Does not much resemble a beer. It is more like a root beer or a ginger ale of some sort. Some roasted characters. Notes of raisin, but no sweetness. This is a very odd beer and definitely something that I not like.

nuplastikk (4901) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 16.9 oz bottle. Really nice deep brown color. The taste is super sweet, the sugary flavor reminiscent of a Caribbean sweet stout...in a bad way. Semi watery in a way, so a little drinkable...certainly doesnít make me want to try any other of the Greenís beers. Borderline disgusting pungent sorghum(?) taste dominates the aftertaste, like bad cough medicine.
