1.65/5  rDev -41.5%
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.

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.

Oh my God. I bought this because I had a friend who had allergic issues. It taste like a dark Corona. It's barely drinkable, and franky, for the calories, I might just drain pour and open something decent to get this aweful taste out of my mouth. ICk.

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

A: Poured a dark brown, looks almost like cola. Quite carbonated out of the bottle, with a large dark tan head that quickly dissipated leaving behind significant lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: A caramel sweetness with a hint of acetic acid underneath.

T: Strong sweet malt flavors up front with hints of caramel/toffee that leads into a slight acidity and finishes with an earthy mineral character.

M: Initially the carbonation is silky, and fades to a lingering effervescence. While the flavor is sweet, the mouthfeel isn't sticky.

O: One of the better gluten-free offererings I've had. The flavors almost remind me of Lindeman's Faro at the beginning. While not strictly adhering to the flavors you would find in a traditional dubbel, it is still quite good for what it is.

3.53/5  rDev +25.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - dark brown amber; thin lacing of brown head; decent retention

S - baked apples, bread, faint spice

T - baked apples, caramel, faint yeast, mild spice

M - very crisp, smooth, medium bodied

As far as gluten free beers go this is decent. The apple presence is strong and off putting, but overall this is decent.

My wife who has been searching for a decent gluten free beer for a while says that this is her absolute favorite.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Not much head or lacing after the initial hard pour. Just a few wisps of foam remain.

S: Sour cherry candy, soft milk chocolate.

T: Tart dark fruits, toffee, cola, cherries.

M: Very fizzy while taking sips.

O: As a dubbel it's really off the mark, as a Dubbel/Flanders Red hybrid, this is very good.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The appearance is very dark black with a red hue at the bottom of the glass. Has a frothy foamy head which take a while to settle
down but stays at some level all the way down. The foam even sticks to glass all the way down.

Smells of faint cherries and sorghum.

Tastes very fruity strong on cherries almost like cherry coke. After taste of sorghum not too bad.

Feels very carbonated at first like a soda but them calms down and feels much thicker in the mouth.

Overall doesn't really taste like a dubbel but as a gluten free beer it's the best I've had and I've tried most of them.

Blind beer #2 of 12

This beer is a bomber that was gift wrapped no sign of glass ware suggestions so I will give it a sniff test. Off comes the cap a lactic honey aroma rises out. So into a snifter I sent this beer.

A-2.5 The body of the beer is mahogany. The head was a short lasting white coloration. No lacing noted on my glass.

S- 2.5 This is a bit odd. The aroma of honey sweetened lactic and vinous apple cider rise out my glass. At first I was intrigued but this quickly turned into a train wreck as the beer quickly warms.

T- 1.0 This beer taste like an apple cyser / honey mead gone horribly wrong. Lactic vinegar notes combine with MD 20/20 vinous notes. In short not good.

M- 1.0 This beer would have been very limp in character if not for its astringency. Light bodied almost no carbonation.

O- 1.0 I can truthfully state this beer was unappealing.

Thanks for a unique beer experience that will haunt my memory for some time. Is this beer as intended, infected or just off?

The Reveal. Greens Endeavor All Natural Double Dark.

A beer brewed with Millet, Rice, Buckwheat and Sorghum. I would also like to add no redeeming value for a beer drinker.
