1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
500 ML poured into a Chimay Chalice.
A - Pours very dark with garnet highlights. Cola brown head that sinks into an active ceiling.
S - Cherries, some tartness, apples, berries, sweet candy, perfume wine.
T - Cherries, vinous oxidation, tart dark fruit, subtle Christmas-like spice, dried orchard apples, dry vinous alcohol thins out the flavors on the finish.
M - Aggressive carbonation fills the mouth with bubbles and thins out the flavors, hindering them from developing.
Itís like a sparkling red wine with some yeast thrown in. Not as good as Quest and not a great Dubbel but it has a huge disadvantage being gluten free. For some reason it reminds me of Christmas. I could drink this while decorating the Christmas tree.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a hazy dark. Aroma is sweet dark fruits. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Sweet, syrupy, and flat tasting. Tastes like a non-alcoholic dark beer or a "beer-flavored" drink. Not good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pricey gluten free brew at $7 for a 550ml. I have been trying a lot of gluten free beers because my girlfriend doesnít eat gluten, and of the oneís Iíve had this one is most similar to gluten "with" beer. Although, as with all the gluten free brews Iíve had, itís just missing that yeasty bite .

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep amber/brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is fruity...raisin and fig. Flavor follows suit...super faint tart and leather too. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry/earthy/dark fruit finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy brown with a decent off white head. Aroma is paint, sherry, caramel. Reasonably thin on the body, has a nice tang on the palate. Taste is sherry, grape, little spice. Nice but not much like a Dubbel - not much like a beer at all actually.†

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Horrid. Molasses, medicine, and a fake juice aroma mixed with something approaching plum. Medium bodied and amber appearance.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber with a 3 inch frothy head. Laces really well. Smells like plum juice with a hint of belgian yeast and light malt. The flavor is mostly sweet with some toasty malt. Palate is a bit harsh. Finish is just lightly malty. Not a whole lot going on in the hop arena.
