3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of souring wine and caramel dipped apples. Lighter yellow like a blonde ale. Flavor is mainly candied sweetness, much like a caramel of Sugar Daddy candies, and just a hint of salt. Light body, wonít say watery but flows easily against the pallet. Interesting mix of alternative grains.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Had this many times now. By far my favorite GF beer. Pours a golden color, ample head the sticks around a while, and an aroma that is pretty much where it needs to be for the style. Taste is malty, spicy, only mildly bitter, with typical Belgian yeast notes to it. Has made GF beer life more tolerable. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods Market - 500 ml bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with a sticky, bubbly white frothy head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some odd sour vinegary note, a bit of funky cake mix. Flavor has some sweet cake mix notes, a light hint of brown sugar, just a tad bit of sourness, some light nuttiness. Mouthfeel actually has a decent texture to it, One of the the better gluten-free beers I have had.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tulip glass.
Appearance: It has an orange/golden color with a hazy body and a tall head from the pour. This head slowly fades out leaving no covering or lacing.
Smell: The aroma has a light wine like character with apple skins and just a touch of citrus and yeast spice.
Taste/Palate: Up front there is a light grain and an odd apple skin like fruity sweetness with a touch of bready/spicy yeast. The finish has a dry and tart white wine like character that smacks the palate. The body has a light medium feel with balanced carbonation.
Notes: As a Belgian Tripel itís an epic fail!!! As a gluten free beer it has more character than most. Still I donít think I would recommend this beer to anyone.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a clear golden color with a large white head, but the aroma smells a lot like a white wine but is actually a mixture of dough yeast, apples, and a slight amount of skunk. This brewís likeness to a dry white wine continues in the taste and the palate; the flavors of this beer are quite sour and mildly sweet, and the mouthfeel fuses a medium body, astringent finish, thin texture, and an average carbonation.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Bought this one for Pat that sommamabitch. Pours a cleanish amber with fluffy lasting beige head and lace. Notes of cider vinegar, 2 buck Chuck, genocide, chemicals, apple, lemon, band-aid, oppression. Light to medium body. This has to be poisonous. This will most likely be my last review. Tell my mom I love her.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Hazy orange/amber with 3 fingers of white sea foam that retain well.
S - Grapes, green apples, candy sugar, hints of bubblegum alcohol, spice, slightly acidic.
T - Tart fruit, green grapes and apples, clean white wine flavors, spicy soft grain on the back of the palate. Sweet middle with some yeast esters mixed in. Dry grassy hops clean up the sweetness on the finish.
M - Smooth and clean body with a fizzy dry finish.
Sweet and clean tartness with a dry fizzy finish. This exceeded my expectation being gluten free. I applaud the brewery for this as it doesnít stack up to a BSPA or a Tripel but has the characteristics without the bready malt. I would drink this if I had an intolerance to gluten.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Im not going to ífaultí this beer for being gluten free or judge it as a gluten beer.) Dark golden. Small white head. A little drippy lace. Aroma is fruity, sour, a little funk. Flavor is white wine, mild sour fruit, green apple, funky . Medium body. Slightly drying. More than a decent gluten free choice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold and smells of fruity Belgian yeast. It tastes sweet with a slightly dry finish. The carbonation is fairly lively and the body light to medium. Itís got the sugary character Iíve found in other gluten frees though not as bad. The alcohol is noticeable in the flavor though. This was one of the beers I had given Dan for christmas.
