I have no medical reason to drink a gluten-free beer, but what the heck, letís try one anyway. GLASS: Tripel Karmeliet Goblet TEMP: Cellared at approx. 50 degrees This beer looks nice in a glass. It has the color of golden honey. It should be noted that it looks just slightly darker than expected for a Tripel. It pours with a nice thick head that, unfortunately, dissipates all too quickly. It gives off a nice citrus and yeast smell that leads me back to positive anticipation. The taste is not quite what was expected from a Tripel, but it is very close. It tastes predominately of peaches and nectarines. It has a slight taste of honeyed apples on the back end of it. In between lays an unknown tanginess and something that almost tastes too sweet for this glass. It does feel good in the mouth, as a good beer should. There is nothing to make you think that youíre missing some ingredient. I would say, as someone who is not concerned about gluten content, that this would be a good beer to enjoy every now and then (like once or twice a year). Just to be used as something to throw into the mix to break up the regular routine. If you are someone who must maintain a gluten-free diet, you would be hard pressed to find a beer with better flavor than this, at this point in time, anyway. In the realm of Tripels, this is in the middle of the pack. Iíve definitely had better, but iíve certainly had worse.

Something about this struck a chord with me, though it overall was a bit lacking in execution. There is a wine-like flavor to it, with a deep yellow color and white bubbly head.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Enjoyed from a 16.9oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours the characteristic deep yellow to medium amber, with a slightly smaller-than-average white head. Some sour notes come through in the nose, as do some cidery notes. Finally, some malt-like character comes through, which is curious, since there wasnít any malt used. The palate is full in terms of both complexity and mouthfeel. Again, there is a rather prevalent note of acidity, which I found to compliment the other tenets of the style, namely esters and some sweetness. A slight spice from the hops evidences itself in the mid-palate to finish. Overall, an interesting concoction, and a pleasing "beer."

daknole (8550) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Clar yellow/gold with a big bubbled head. Arom ais nasty. Old apple cider and overripe lemons. Flavor is even worse. Why so much apple flavor. Too much carbonation. BLEH.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Pours an ugly cloudy light brown with a tiny layer of foam. Aroma is mostly spoiled fruit that has begun to ferment by itself - not pleasant in this case. Alot of ultra-cheap fortified ghetto wine aromas, if you know what Iím talking about. Flavor is an odd mix of fruit, cheap white wine, cheap malt liquor; the 8.5% tastes and feels more like 13. Mouthfeel is light, malt liquor finish. I guess Iíve been taking for granted the fact that Iím not allergic to anything that the makers of this have omitted for this brand. Overall, poor.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Clear yellow orange, off white foam. Aroma is spicy, alcoholic, lemony. Taste is more spicy, apparent alcohol, some light maltiness, lemony. Not terrible, just weird.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bronze with a mucous viscosity layer on top. Extremely fruity and floral/ethyl alcohol aroma that is almost too much. Exceptionally estery, champaign-like ebullience. Apple is the most easily identifiable flavor. Lacks the yeastiness generally characteristic of a trippel. Pretty much a sparkling champaign.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Pours the color of a white white, like chardonay or something. Originally has a 1 inch white head but that vanishes presto! It ooks like white grapejuice and tastes the same. Wine nose, aplle and grape fruit aroma and taste. Are they sure this is beer? Itís even dry. And at 9.8% on par with wine. Very tart, I guess they substituted the barely for grapes?

hair-old (180) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Rated higher because of the hash they smoked from Holland to brew this drainpour product..... Buy a jug of apple cider and add some vodka. Avoid at all costs.....................

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Reviewed 6/11/2009 (Bottle): Pours a clear very light golden colored body. Small pure white colored head. Almost looks like apple juice. Very sweet aroma. Sour apples, and grain. Sugar aroma. Grainy taste, some pear. Light taste, hides the alcohol pretty good. Similar to lambic, and also to a Belgian triple.
