"Gluten Free". Looks and pours just like a Coca-Cola, including the different kind of extra-poofy "head". Definitely has pretty much the right dubbel aroma, but is not quite right (though Iíve had worse non-gluten-free!). Flavor is OK, better than expected. A bit thin in the mouthfeel department. Overall, so-so, but if you couldnít drink gluten, this might be a good choice.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head on there. Nose is sweet, with caramel and candied sugar in there. Taste is slightly sweet, but with a sour aftertaste. Meh.

dark brown with a thick head; dark fruit and piney hop aroma; roasted malt and dark fruit flavor with a good deal of spivey, piney hop notes; a gluten free beer; maybe a good choice if you are gluten intolerant, but if not, there are plenty of better beers out there

I didnít know buckwheat wasnít wheat. Oh well. Had a mini Greens tasting. Iíd 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 wasnít enough to be cool - just enough to be off."

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.

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.

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.

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.
