3.75/5  rDev +26.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into an over-sized wine glass.

Look - dark golden color, clear, with about three or four fingers worth of off-white foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell - smells fairly earthy and very fizzy like champagne. Maybe a hint of ginger? But that could be the mix of Buckwheat, Rice, and Sorghum.

Taste and Mouthfeel - nothing at the initial taste, just kinda fizzy. Then there's a tart feeling, but not much of a taste, in the middle at the back of the palate, then it turns a little bitter in the finish. Texture is very smooth, but again very fizzy.

Overall - I don't love the taste, but given that it's a gluten-free beer, it's not bad...definitely one of the best that I've tried of that type.

3.36/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Pours a bright, slightly hazy orangish-yellow colour. Plentiful aromas of fruit cocktail. Taste offers sweet notes of fruit candy and fruit cocktail. Light bodied, but bold flavours and a pronounced booziness. Mimics the style fairly well for a gluten-free beer.

1.73/5  rDev -41.6%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Clear dark amber with a small white head, with fair retention and not much lacing. Definitely does not smell like a Tripel. The aroma has apples, spices, grains, and some sourness. Not a very strong aroma, or a very pleasant one either.

Tastes somewhat sweet and tart with apples, grains, spices, and some yeast. Nothing about this beer makes me think it is a Tripel.

Light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. Not worth trying again.

2.3/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Transparent orange color. Not much head or lacing.

S - Smells just like apple juice/cider.

T/M - Well, tastes much more like an apple cider than a triple. Crisp mouthfeel.

O - These guys make some good gluten free beer, but this isn't one of them. It just doesn't work. I wouldn't even recommend this to somebody with a gluten tolerance. I mean, it's okay, but why would you choose this over an apple cider? Oh yeah, the alcohol. Yeah it hides that well.

2.54/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Smell: faint herbs, cloves, citrus, and pears

Taste: subtle clementines, herbs (I'm not a cook so I could only tell you this beer tastes like the 'green' ones), and hints of apple cider pervade throughout; heavy rice, bitter oats, and slightly sour gains prevail during each sip

I'm sorry if you have a gluten allergy; this beer doesn't do it for me and it probably won't for you either. Some people may like the taste of sour yeast, oats, and rice but as for yours truly, it's very overbearing and kills the potential it has with some of its other flavors. Maybe if you pair it with a veggie pizza that includes heavy Alfredo sauce it may work

Sorry greens

4.1/5  rDev +38.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

It pours a clear golden straw, light amber color with a nice two finger sized off-white head of various sized bubbles that leaves a strange Klingon Bird of Prey pattern on the glass! COOL! Nerd Points! the head remains a full beautiful cap throughout the drink as well! Full points on appearance!

The aroma is kind of like like a malty sweet base that meets sour honey and bitter apple in a steel cage match. I was surprised by that but instantly thought that they were going with a sour on this one. There may be a hint of grass-like hops in there, but it's very faint and might be bordering on my imagination.

The taste is quite like cider, but there is a caramel malt type sweetness lurking at it's base. Above it on the surface is like a smooth sour apple with a little bitter on the back of the tounge and a champagne yeast type of ride along the way. It's kind of weird as it starts off sweet and as it moves across the tongue there is a little sour and at the back of the tongue you get bitter (apple) just as how the tongue is set up with sweet at the tip, sour near the back and bitter at the very back. In the middle of the sip there is a creamy caramel-ness that I can't describe. All in all, it's really well balanced and at the very end there is a sense of black pepper and finally, hops!

Unlike other gluten free beers that I have had, this one has just a hint more than a medium mouthfeel, and considering it's peers, it's really full comparatively. It's sweet, but the sour and the bitter do a fair bit of balancing that out, but it tips in the favor of sweet. The carbonation is lively and I am going to go out on a limb and pontificate that the yeast is most likely a champagne yeast. The head remains until the end. If this were a zombie, you would lose because the head must be removed for them to die.

I'm going to go out on another yoga limb and stretch it and say that this is world class. If it is not world class then it is VERY close, but I think it's getting a full score from me. I can't find anything that I don't like about this beer! It's 9% and yet sessionable!
