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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tastes like sour apple cider with alcohol. Very poor quality on the palate and not smooth on the way down. The best thing about this beer was its sub average appearance. Avoid at all costs.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Aroma is medicinal, tart. Pours hazy yellow with a medium head which dissipates just a bit, leaving a layer of foam on top of the beer. Taste is sour. Nice aftertaste. High carbonation. Much better than the Endeavour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a bizarre white bubbly head, big quickly dissipating bubbles akin to a vigorous pour of milk perhaps. A sweet citrus and honey nose. A basic and decent flavor; somewhat odd sour plastic, sweet malt substitute, honey. OK, odd and not something Iíd drink again probably.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Half liter bottle pours hazy gold Ė apricot with copper core and very brief white head. The aroma is full of apple fruitiness, a light amount of spice, chemical earthiness (what?) and an odd note I can only characterize as sliptelbuzzin. The taste is surprisingly smooth to start with cider, some pears, grapes and a white wine note note. It goes down hill from there as it gets an odd sugary, brown rice, earthy, chemical and sliptelbuzzin sensation. I didnít want to finish it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a three finger cream head that fades very slowly, leaving some lace. Nearly clear pale golden amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet apple nose. Flavor is sweet apple and cider. Does not taste like a triple. Higher ABV is hidden. Best by Sep 13, 2009. $5.99 for a 500ml bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.
