341ml bottle. Nice to see this GF brewer branch out into Belgian-style territory.
This beer pours a crystal clear medium-dark copper amber hue, with one finger of bubbly, loosely foamy ecru head, which leaves some sparse islet lace around the glass as it quickly dissolves.
It smells of bready, lightly biscuity caramel, a twinge of candied toffee, a hint of edgy yeast, a mildly astringent vegetal essence, and earthy, herbal hops. The taste is more mirror-world graininess - vegetal, herbal, and with a somewhat sour caramel sweetness - a metallic flintiness, dark gritty sugar, and some minor orchard fruit notes.
The carbonation is on the low side, but still well supportive, the body an adequate medium weight, and mostly smooth, that herbal vegetal character kind of wedging its way in at times. It finishes off-dry, the pseudo-caramel malt keeping up the thinly-veiled charade of a standard dubbel's malt profile.
Well, I knew going in that this wouldn't exactly duplicate a barley-based dubbel, in all its hefty malt glory. However, I gotta say, this ain't half bad, that normal vegetal and/or weak cider essence kept to the shadows, while the millet, brown rice, and candi syrup perform their best mawkish imitation. Drinkable, I suppose, which is usually the best thing I can say about this unfortunate necessity of a beer 'style'.

Bottle: Poured a light brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with light candy ester is quite nice. Taste is a good mix between some residual candi sugar notes with some candy ester and some subtle grain notes. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Not the greatest representation of the style but very enjoyable for a beer without barley.
