1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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?

Rated higher because of the hash they smoked from Holland to brew this
Buy a jug of apple cider and add some vodka.
Avoid at all costs.....................

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I donít know what I rated the others and I wonít look but this one reminds me of a crummy mead. But, once again, for a Gluten free brew, this is drinkable, sort of.
Pours out a large rocky white head that has some notable retention and leaves thin spotty lacing. The beer itself is a weak orange gold with some fine unfiltered floaties. Even a light swirl refreshes the cap. The initial sharp sourness peters off after a bit leaving the smells of the oddness of the ingredients. Itís kind of fruity / honey too but the actual smells here are just a big mystery to me, sorry. The initial taste is very sharp and sour with some honey. This gives way to immediate alcohol and some prominent odd spice which all gives way to a soft, warm semi-bread. It is interesting in how the flavour actually changes three times per sip. The mouth feel is quite sharp with heavy carbonation. Finishes bready.

Oily gold color. Not much head retention. Swear it smells like itís gonna have tannin on the tongue. First swallow Iím like "Is this a cider?, a Mead?" So the fruits come through, but so does most of the alcohol. Thereís a decent malt in there somewhere, but this is just weird.
File under íIt comes from Belgium but so does Stellaí

Well, itís probably one of the best rice beers Iíve tried, but thatís not saying a hell of a lot.
Belgians usually donít let me down, but hippies often do. This one was gonna be a tossup. First off, it doesnít taste much like a Trippel, but it doesnít taste all that bad either. It ends finishes sour rather than dry. Not objectionable, but not a good Belgian tripel at all. There was something in the nose I had trouble placing, but now I realize it has the faint smell of one of those citronella candles you light to keep mosquitos away. Now I have the song Patio Lanterns by Kim Mitchell in my head, and it wonít go away. Damn.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, apple juice, white grapes and fruit sugars. Poured golden/yellow in color with a medium-sized, rocky, thin, white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of white grapes, slight alcohol, grains, fruit sugars, fruit, and scotch tape. Light to medium body. Thin, dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, apple and yeast finish is dry. Not great, but not too bad either.
