I'm liking the whole gluten-free concept here. In fact, there is an entire paragraph listing all the things it does NOT have to disrupt one's sensitive system. Of course, this omission includes malt and wheat. What? That's right - maltless beer.

Tall, fluffy dark tan head sits atop a very dark amber brown body. When held to light, its haziness becomes apparent. Grabby lace with large bubbles. Quite the eye candy.

Speaking of which, somewhat tart yet sweet in the first whiff, like a sour candy. Raisiny dark fruits emerge quickly with pensive, warmer sniffs.

A deep sweetness upon the first sip catches me off guard. Warm dates and tobacco leaf coats the tongue. Thankfully, the vinous tartness that I smelled initially is vaguely there too; and with the carbonation, it just saves this from tasting under-attenuated. Definitely the work of some Belgian yeast at work here (presumably evolved to process millet, buckwheat, rice, and sorghum) that provides a sliver of funk for complexity.

Although this seems fully developed and there is more than adequate carbonation, the stickiness and sweet, overripe coating of the tongue is overwhelming. Although it does not taste bad at all, it is not easy on the palate nor really quaffable. Really should be good if dried up.

However, I dig this concept, and there is definitely a skill level involved to the brewing. Consider for a second for either situation: a) you are allergic to nearly everything on Earth but would love to drink beer; or b) Your conscience (or boss) says to make a beer without malt, wheat, or anything not hypo-allergenic (yes, it is generously mentioned that there is no fish, eggs, celery, or mustard involved). Either way, you would have to be pleased with this offering. Especially if it were more dry.

Had this a few weeks back at the Bonefish Grill in Pine Brook - not having a gluten-free beer before and never had anything from Green's as well. While this didn't live up to expectations, it was decent for being without gluten, even though it wasn't anywhere as good as the Dubbel's the define the style. Overall, this was worth a go once but without strong body and appealing mouthfeel, this beer faded as quickly from memory as it did once I finished off the bottle at my table.

Of course, this poured quite dark and thin with a head that was moderately present and faded n due time. Not a strong aroma to this but there was the typical candied sugar and dark fruit to be round here. The mouthfeel was thin and was an indication of how easy this would go down with my meal. There was apple and pear here but not a lot of yeast, body, or darker fruits to be found and the carbonation was present enough to keep this light. It felt like a dark cider and went down as easily as one too, as the sugar gave this a feeling of a fall "orchard" beverage.

Even though it wasn't easy to discern, the alcohol was spot-on and the somewhat creamy aspect of the mouthfeel led this to go down easy. Would gluten have added more body to this beer? Probably, but even with that, it would have still been light. I wouldn't trash this like others have on here but at the same time, this wasn't anything special. A good beer should enhance a meal and with the bread and seafood that I enjoyed, this paired just fine. worth a try once for anyone who wants a light Belgian-style beer with dinner without being overwhelmed.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brown colour. Very fruity nose with scents of pear/pear skin, port and dried plum. Flavours of cherry and cola on the palate, with a tart dry finish. It’s not as heavy as an Abbey ale, but has nice similarities flavour wise.

1.65/5  rDev -40.9%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

Pours a dark brown color with a small off white head, with fair retention and spotty lacing. the aroma is both sweet and tart with apples, grains, and a sweet malt which is hard to describe. Not inviting.

Has a weird combination of sweet and tart flavors which has an apple and vinegar type of tartness and sweetness, along with an artificial type of malt flavor. That's the best way I can describe it.

Light bodied with a lot of carbonation. Just as nasty as the other two Green's beers I picked up. Thankfully I am done with these putrid beers now, and can get on to something better. I should have know better than to buy all 3 of these Green's beers without checking any ratings first.

1.9/5  rDev -31.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance - dark brown, can't see through it. Nice bubbly 1/2 finger head.

Smell - sweet & sour. Very interesting smell...can't quite place it.

Taste - decent flavor, however not strong how I like most of my beers. The best gluten offering I have ever had.

Mouthfeel - so-so

Overall - an ok beer for being gluten free.
