2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brass color with soapy white head. The aroma is strangely full of apples, with some faint spice, flower, and zest notes. The flavor is also heavy on the apple. There are some woody notes after that, then some spicy yeast. The mouth is quite tingly. It finishes medium-dry with a stale-ish floral note. Not particularly impressive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Though I have been disappointed by other Green’s offerings, I decided to give this one a try, and I am glad I did.
Color is a clear orangy-amber, nothing special but not off-putting. Aroma is crisp and fruity, more on a cider than a beer, a little sweet but not cloying. Flavor is perky, fruity and a little sour, with a nice alcohol zing; it tastes like a mixture of cider and sake - different, and not in a bad way. Texture is smooth and pleasing, a teensy bit watery but not too shabby.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a golden color with a large white head. The aroma contains a bit of lemons with some perfume notes. The flavor contains some cooked veggies, sour apples, sugar, and lemons. Overall this beer was odd but not horrid.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle... Hazy light golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. The aroma is very restrained. Sake, fuzzy fruit and ethanol are the only traces I can pull from the glass. Medium-bodied, lightly creamy and very effervescent. The flavor is a fruity, moderately bitter marriage of Perry and floral hops. Crisp, tangy, fruity finish.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with 3-finger fizzy white head. Nose is pear, apple, yeast. Tastes fizzy dry and champagny, with mild metallic notes, plus florals, slight berry, and pear. Tastes carbonated, slightly metallic, with slight berry and pear flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(.5l bottle at home with weeAnaP on September 15, 2008) Pours a semi-cloudy amber-orange color with barely noticeable carbonation (which you can really only notice as it reaches the surface). Quest has the same fermented aroma as Greens Endeavor, but noticeably more sweet and, well, Tripel. Its aroma has a strength that, in a way, reminds me of saki - I am assuming that is the rice. It hits your mouth with a hard and pungent and sweet punch. Its flavor is like saki as well, but a little more tame. It is very nice on the palate. Something very pleasant follows up my nose... a very enjoyable drink. Different, but delicious. I wanted more, and from reading the other ratings it looks as if I am alone here. I am surprised its average score is only 2.09. I admit, it is not for the traditional beer drinker. Well... this is what happens when you take barley and gluten out of the mix. Does not mean it is not enjoyable.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours a clear orange-yellow with a large egg-shell head, lively carbonation, good lacing.
smell is sour, berry, some malt, alcohol.
taste is sour and tart, alcohol, pear, malt, bubble gum, end is very sour and somewhat dry, aftertaste is strange and leaves a weird coating in the mouth.
overall looks are deceiving, stay away from this one unless you are just trying to increase your rating numbers.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Once again, I find pity in my heart for those poor bastards who can’t drink a regular beer without getting sick. They are left with honest but badly flawed attempts to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear in the area of fine craft beer. This represents yet another failure. It looks okay-- deep golden with a light frothy foam cap that actually drapes lace around the top of the glass. The aroma is offputting, with green apples, plastic, and raw almonds combining with harsh hot alcohol. The palate is a little less offensive, sugary fruity-sweet (white grape juice) with warming alcohol and chemical bitterness in the finish. Oddly enough, this becomes easier to drink as it comes up in temperature, however this also may be due to numbing of the palate as time passes.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hahahahahahaha. The bottle description is a lot more detailed than the one here on RB. No crustaceans indeed. Poured with almost no head and no lace. My friend Paul said just wait till you try it. Sweet/sour. Definitely not a tripel. Think it might have the beginning of an infection. Thankfully short, mild finish.

I keep trying these gluten free beers, hoping to find one that doesn’t, you know, suck. I’m still searching. Honestly, after reading the commercial description, I’m thinking Sulphur Dioxide is what this beer needs. I mean, seriously, they call this a tripel, but there is absolutely nothing in the flavor that characterizes this as a tripel.
