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 .

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber pour, decent tan head. Nose is dark fruit. Sweet. Middle suggests cherry cola, hint of herbs. I could get used to this if I had too, but I do not right now.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into chalice, best before 10/29/2019. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, pepper, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate/nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready maltiness, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, pepper, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate/nuttiness, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of yeast spiciness and herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, pepper, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready maltiness, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Some light-moderate dryness after the finish from carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/prickly/foamy, and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice gluten free Dubbel style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready maltiness, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Meh. Earthy tastes arenít bad. Surprisingly flat. No Belgian yeast. Not a dubbel.

Good flavor, nice buzz. The blonde is better, but when in doubt this beer with suffice. It's gluten free and that's a plus

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
dark brown with a thick head; dark fruit and piney hop aroma; roasted malt and dark fruit flavor with a good deal of spivey, piney hop notes; a gluten free beer; maybe a good choice if you are gluten intolerant, but if not, there are plenty of better beers out there

I didnít know buckwheat wasnít wheat. Oh well. Had a mini Greens tasting. Iíd passed for a while cause these are 6.50 for 500 ml of gluten free...weirdness, as it turns out. His "Dubbel" really fell into no style. Looked like a Dubbel but had an odd sweetness above hints of belgian yeast and an even odder sour note that wasnít enough to be cool - just enough to be off."
