0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle @ MJ’s house. Clear golden pour with pretty much no head. Smells like apples/apple cider, boiled cardboard and onions, garlic, and a weird grainy aroma. Just not pleasant. Spicy Belgium yeast flavor. Cardboard, onions, and sweet apple cider. Very vegetal, water, and green apple finish. Twangy. Blech.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle @ MJ’s place. Pours a light yellow appearance with a tiny white head. Bizarre papery, lemon, apple, weird corny, disgusting aroma. Tangy apple, cleanser, tart, papery flavor. Would not drink again.

0.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Quick pour yields a head like seltzer water which then instantly falls flat into a no-head apple juice yellowish-orange clear body. Actually smells like crummy apple cider pop. Huge bubbly texture with a HORRIBLE sourish corn syrup flavor. Sticks everywhere. Won’t go away. And it keeps effervescing to no end, it’s like having an alka seltzer tablet dissolve in your mouth and you think for a second that your mouth is going to fill and explode and spit out. And spit it out you should.

Bottle. Clear light golden pour with a small white head. Smells like plastic and trash. Taste is no better. Awful.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
From a bottle, big bubbles head. Lots of visible carbonation. Somewhat plastic volatile aroma, good whiff, knocks my head back.. Stronger bandade taste, yes, plasticity carries over to the flavor, too. Good co2 but this is almost as rude as my homemade apple cider. Maybe equally offensive. Somethings sticking out in this brew. Quite pointed. Not impressed. Seems like much more than 5%.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
8/5/13. Bought for Shannon and brought to the poconos. Gluten free beer. If I ever asked for a beer that tasted chi tea, I'd expect this one. Couldn't imagine drinking more then 1. Vanilla, honey, spices, reading other reviews people spoke of lemon taste, I don't recall that however I'm not gonna buy another one to find that taste

On tap at Fate poured a cloudy yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, light orange zest and lght spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of straw, honey, citrus and spice with a crisp lingering citrus finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden, quickly diminishing light white head. Aroma has a touch of honey and some light floral accents. Flavor has some light spicy notes with some light saffron notes, a touch of bubble gum, some light citrus bitterness. Slightly artificial and industrial tasting with an off-putting after taste. Mouthfeel is where the lack of gluten really shines through, pasty and dull.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours gold with a slight white head. Aroma does suggest Belgian yeast/spice. Med body. Flavor goes a bit wonky. Kind of honey/vanilla. IMHO it’s much more like a cider than a Belgian. It even has a touch of "skin" astringency. Forgetting the attempted style, this may be the most drinkable of the NP gfs.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear, bubbly gold with a thin, soapy cap.
Aroma is vanilla.
Taste is honey, and heavy vanilla....concentrated vanilla.....like a Little Trees Air Freshener.
For a "natural" product, it seems shockingly synthetic....and why they chose to call it a Belgian, baffles me.
A little creamy rice, but predominately vanilla.
Different, to say the least.
