I saw this beer and thought it would be fun to try, what with all the non tradintional ingredents in it. I was wrong. The apperance isn't all that bad. It has a nice big head and a hazy orange hue that may get your hopes up. The rest is down hill. This beer is more akin to sparkling wine or cider than anything else. Not even good cider or sparkling wine. I suppose if I had an intolerance to gluten I may have a different opinion. But if I did and this beer was my only choice I would rather drink cider or sparkling wine. Maybe my bottle was contaminated. Yuck!

2/5  rDev -32%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

pours a clear orange-yellow with a large egg-shell head, lively carbonation, good lacing.

smell is sour, berry, some malt, alcohol.

taste is sour and tart, alcohol, pear, malt, bubble gum, end is very sour and somewhat dry, aftertaste is strange and leaves a weird coating in the mouth.

overall looks are deceiving, stay away from this one unless you are just trying to increase your rating numbers.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

label says this is a tripel. let's hope it doesn't suck as much as the dubbel.

pours out of the half litre bottle a hazy apple juice colour with a weak, thin, quickly dissapating head. very sparse lace. white grapes, pears and apples in the aroma. quite subdued. taste is a wince inducing conspiracy of champagne, apple juice and sour pears. yikes. it tastes like a bad bottle of champagne...with some dirt thrown in. a bit boozy, too. yikes. it does get a bit closer to style with a semi carbonated, crispy mouthfeel but the body is totally lacky any depth which proves to make is seem watery and lifeless. drinkability is terrible. ugh this is bad.

ok so this sucks worse than the dubbel. it has some wretched taste in the grain profile that totally ruins any slight positives in the brewing of this beer. again, my scores are on the nice side.

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.

This beers starts good, but rapidly declines. It looked quite good, a nice copper/amber color with a good deal of carbonation. It had a small, fizzy, white head. It smelled of some light caramel malt and a berry-like fruit. The taste was very fruity and reminded me of champagne - but not good champagne. Mouthfeel was too fizzy. This really isn't worth a try unless you truly need gluten-free beer.

Hahahahahahaha. The bottle description is a trip! No crustaceans indeed. Poured with almost no head and no lace. My friend Paul said just wait till you try it. Sweet/sour. Definitely not a tripel. Think it might have the beginning of an infection. Thankfully short, mild finish. There was a dark residue of some intergalactic sort under the bottle cap.

If this is the best gluten free can be, then I feel sorry for those suffering from Celiac Disease. Wouldn't want to finish a whole bottle.

Ok, so lets acknowledge that there is a place for gluten free beers - for those who can't digest it, I imagine a product like this is a treat.

Reviewing against a "gluten full" beer though, this is just awful.

Pours very cloudy like amber with virtually no foam. Ok so far. Smells of light citrus - not bad, surely not great. Hints of apples.

The taste is absolutely horrible. Like sour, rotten apples, blended with a lemon. Some kind of bad hop backbone.

Lingering sour bittr aftertaste. Truly bad. This went down the drain.

Have not had a decent organic brew to-date, and this one again doesn't cut it. AND this freakin' 500ml bottle was $7 - wow, did I get it stuck up my waazoo.

Pours a root beer / amber, with a fast dying tan head. But the aroma - wow, what a nasty mess of turpentine and boozy malt. Most foul smell imaginable. Quaff if not much better, funky overripe fruit and cider. Fizzy with a stinging finish of medicine booze.

I've never drain-poured this will be a challenge. And I've made it though, some how. I really feel for those that gluten free is the only option.

Holy crap, BA lists this as a triple - what a beer abomination.

Hazy peach blonde with a foamy white cap that leaves very little lace behind. The smell is more hard cider and mustier that any Belgian triple I have encountered before. The flavor is very much like cheap Italian sparkling wine, fruit forward with an almost cloying sweetness. Sticky and filmy in the mouth with a lot of carbonation gassiness. I'm glad I don't have celiac disease because this "beer" is truly a wretched concoction.
