Horrible. Very metallic. Tastes like Alka Seltzer. No head retention at all.I should checked Rate beer before I wasted my money on this crap!!!! If you want quality Gluten-free Belgian ales, stick with Greenís Beers from DeProef Brouwerij, or Brasserie de Brunehaut! How do companies that make such swill stay in business??? Do I really need to offer a "1" in some of the rating categories??? Really?

Bottle. Yellow with copper highlights and a thin white head. Aroma of cider, lager notes, and some sweetness. Light body, fruit (cider), sweetness, and some metallic notes with a dry finish. Nothing very Belgian about it.

The only thing these morons got right was the color. The rest of it makes you want to toss out what you have left in the trash and take a blunt stick and jam it in your eye.
But seriously, this is just a horrible tasting beer that makes you want to cry. Its kind of sour, as if you were at a Belgian brew fest and left a beer in the sun that sat for a few days until some poor soul took a whiff. And it only gets worse from here. I sense some honey which was a good idea to mask the otherwise feeling that they soaked off the glue from an envelope and let it ferment with sorghum.
Iím crying now because I had a buzz when I picked this up, its 10PM and the stores are closed and I know Iím going to drink these bad boys regardless. I may have to call in sick tomorrow.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hint of Belgian yeasts to start, but clearly a sugary brew from the aroma. Clear orange color, very light suspension and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet and sour and metal, phenolic with hints of diacetyl. Very fizzy and ultimately weightless. Feels like a regular Belgian that sat on the shelf too long. Very difficult to make this style with no malts.

The color of this beer was a light yellow with little to no head. It has a strong cider smell with a hint of sour. It has a taste of light fruity, but has a terrible metallic after taste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Stale nose right off the bat, but sweet and adjuncty. Pours bright golden, strong carbonation with a very noisy and fizzy gush of a head that doesnít live very long. Taste lightly bitter, light-med sweet, light-med tang, but some malt-like sunshine with honey overtones. Medium-full body, relatively smooth but with some crispness that aids refreshment. Peppery with ammy fruit. Strong, oily clove-like phenolic character a bit too strong and medicinal, and thereís disproportionate burn/warmth, but on the whole, pretty well achieves its aims (Iíd be happy as a non-gluten drinker, which is really quite something!).

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a bright, fizzy gold with an ample, meringue-like head that leaves a ton of sticky lacing. Aroma is sour honey with some slight fruity notes - definitely cluing you in thsat this is going to be different. The first hit is SOUR, with a lingering sour aftertaste. Very fizzy and crisp mouthfeel. For those expecting a beer, this is almost like beer-flavored cider. But relax, itís gluten-free, and that poses unfair expectations when judging this stuff. Not my favorite, but you can bet Iíd get a taste for it if I couldnít drink beer.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear straw gold body with a very short lived fizzy white head. The nose is pretty poor, it actually smells more like a cider than a beer. Light honey and a little hint of graininess. The flavor is pretty rough as well. A light cider-like almost sour twang to this throughout, it finishes with a little apple skin like fruitiness and some vegetal notes. Super light bodied and thin with too much fizzy prickly carbonation. This is pretty far off from what Iíd want to drink if I were forced to give up beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Stolen from my dear roommate: Pours loudly fizzy in the palest yellow. Aroma is kind of like cheap champagne or non-alcoholic sparkling cider or something along those lines. Taste is slightly sweet, but mostly bad. Tastes like a weird, really cheap champagne/cider hybrid. Ugh.
