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 doesn’t 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.
Serving type: bottle

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 it’s an epic fail!!! As a gluten free beer it has more character than most. Still I don’t 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 brew’s 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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Im not going to ’fault’ 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear pale yellow with minimal white head. Aroma has honey and raisins. Flavor follows suit...bit of a champagney note...mildly sweet. Mouthfeel is light and lively and the finish is winey/fruity...white wine...and dry.

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. It’s got the sugary character I’ve 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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Maybe just a bit sweet for my tastes. Very glad the’re more and more gluten free beers out and I would recommend this higher than the sorgum ones. I taste a kind of a banana, bubblegum, medium flavor with a mid bitter aftertaste.
My rating is probably artificially high since it’s been so long since I’ve had gluteny delicious beers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to a gluten intolerant friend. Pours light amber with a huge super-fizzy off-white head that dissipates almost instantly leaving a network of huge foamy bubbles in the glass and oddly clumpy lacing. Aroma is yeast, fruit, lemon, windex. Flavor is quite sweet, spicy and oddly astringent, yeasty. Lemony rye-spice aftertaste. Medium body.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a great attempt. Spivey with hints of pear. Tastes like rice and saki. Passable I guess but not super. Needs gluten.
