A smooth beer, but it has an overall apple juice characteristic that doesn’t work with me. MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle, 6%. Roasted, vinous raisin aroma. Seemingly clear dark brown colour, red shine. Vinous raisin flavour, quite sweet, not bad. A bit like Gluehwein. Best glutenfree until now. mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2008
Pours a deep near-black amber with a full head of big bubbles & lacing. Aroma is of apples, iron, antiseptic. Taste is pleasant if completely taken out of context. Green apple, light caramel, lots of alcohol. Tastes like a more interesting "cooler" than normally available, or a mass-produced dark apple cider. Nothing remotely resembling a dubbel, but I’m willing to forgive that. Lots of carbonation, and reasonably full-bodied. Again, completely out-of-context, this is a drinkable beverage, but not an abbey dubbel as I know it. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Body is very dark brown with a healthy size tan head. Aroma of sour candy, granny smith apples and sterlization or rubbing alcohol. Flavour is apple as well with lots of alcohol but not a burning amount. Thinner, likely because of the lack of barley or wheat. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
I like the aroma and look, but the just seems to miss its mark. while it its got a very strong flavor of cola, their is a bit of a tangy sensation that doesn’t work 100% with me. but this is a decent alternative.

The aroma is light and sweet with something that approaches malt and yeast as well as cola. The appearance is dark brown with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma and seems to be slightly toasty but not much. The palate is thin. As alternative beers go this one is drinkable but not good by any other standard. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2008
BB4 16/09/09. Interesting not just because it is gluten free but more because it ambitiously attempts a harder style. Porous light brown head on dark brown beer. Dusty off licorice aroma. Fizzy mouth feel. A bit soda-pop like. Some sweet caramel and light chocolate flavours. Still comes across like a pop rather than a beer. Don’t notice any alcohol. Drinkable.

The aroma was apples and raisins and a sweet underlying nature of caramel. A very light spice was present as was a skinch of chocolate. The beer poured into the glass hazy brown with a moussy tall tan head which laced the glass. The flavor was apple with chocolate and a light bit of spice. Caramel was present and the entire flavor was a bit of a muted mess. Apple and cider most notable with raisins and caramel. The finish was dry with lasting saccharine flavor and apple into the aftertaste. The body was medium-light with a moderate level of carbonation and a watery texture on the palate. A disappointment. 16.9 ounce bottle. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy, dark amber golden with a small, beige head. Odd herbal and medicinal aroma - perhaps a little cough syrup. Medium-bodied with sweetish, roasted malt and notes of dried fruits. No bitterness. 120108 tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 330 ml bottle. Dark brown/reddish color. Very nice tan head. Aroma is dried fruits, almost red wine (maybe it´s alcohol). Flavor is sweet malt, sweetness from sugar, but also citric/fruity and some sourness. Reminds me of red wine. Sweet finish with moderate bitterness. I will try this with some food.
