2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer does not use crustaceans. Says so right on the label. Doesnít use any wheat or barley either. For those gluten intolerant this might be as good as it gets. Nice fruity aroma from a a hazy golden color with just a tiny head that lasts and laces. The flavor is tart almost like apple cider with a fair amount of carbonation. Much better than I thought it was going to be.

Interesting find at local bottle shop and I thought I would try it out. Hmmm...light, fruity, tart, and a little watery. I commend Greens for trying to produce a gluten-free beer. Itís not terrible, but no great either. Found out after I purchased the bottle a freshness date of 07/05/09! Damn, I should have known no one was going to pick this up except a curious person like myself. Hey, still pretty fresh more than a year past due.

16.9 oz bottle, Pours with very little head or aroma. Color is a hazy yellow. Taste is slightly sweet but nothing notable. Definitely different from most beers I have drank, not going to be another one in my future.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Labeled Greenís Tripel Blonde Ale, with All Natural Quest in the center of the label. Pours a nearly clear, pale gold with very high effervescence and a tall, chunky, bright white head that has great retention. Aroma is grass, light citrus, odd grainy sweetness and lots of apple skins. Flavor is apple skins, light grass, a ton of ethanol, lingering fusel notes and faint buckwheat, pretty atrocious. Palate is light bodied, overly dry and has a light, sharp carbonation. This stuff is pretty bad, like a bad malt liquor mixed with cheap vodka and a tripel. Looks nice though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL Bottle -- Pours pale burnt-orange with a medium white head. Blind I would say it was a hard cider. Flavors and aromas of raisin, apple, pear, . Very cloying palate. Overly sweet with a sticky mouth-feel.

Clear golden with a large paper white head. The aroma is way too much like a high gravity lager but with a bit of tart apples. Flavor is pretty much the same. To me this beer is just another tick. Bless those beer lovers who require gluten free.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Sunswick Belgian Beer Festival, 2010. Pours a hazy gold, very bubbly, with a creamy white head. Fairly sweet aroma with some prominent apple notes. Sweet flavor, cider-esque, boozy. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with some Tripel essence. Lightly tart and funky. It is hard to measure this against "regular" Tripels. Against other gluten-free stuff this ainít bad.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 It is really unfair to compare this to other regular beer, it would be better to compare this to other gluten free beer. Gluten free beer does take some getting used to but then it is different grains. Many adjunct lagers taste weird because of the corn. There is a thin sour/tart flavor present but Iíve detected that in most g-free beer. But unlike the Endeavor(dubbel) by Greenís the tartness is a little more hidden in the tripel style. Iíve tried about 6 different gluten free beers and felt this was one of the better ones. Serving: Bottle

Sweet aromas, sugar, bubble gum, with some cotton candy and cider notes. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Sweet fruity notes upfront with mild spice notes, citrusy rice notes, finishes dry. Not bad for gluten free.
