Green's Gluten Free Beer Review - Magically Delicious

Green's Gluten Free Beer (3 types).

I was given 3 Green's Gluten Free Beers to try for my birthday a while back.  They were a bit of an extravagant treat, as I usually would not have spent so much on a bottle of beer.  Now that I have tried them, I am willing to pay to have them again, as they were quite different (and pretty darn strong).  They are each 500mL, so larger than a normal beer (if that allows one to justify spending more money on them).  If you care, they are a Belgian import.  You can usually find them at BevMo or Total Wine.  Here is their North American site.

I will give them each a brief review ordered by descending alcohol content...Notice the large Gluten Free text on each bottle...puts your mind at ease.
Green's Tripel Blonde Ale (gluten free)

1. Green's Tripel Blonde Ale (8.5% ALC/VOL).  Potent. Yellow gold. Tangy kick. Lot of head. Consider adding lemon or orange slice.
Green's Dubbel Dark Ale (gluten free)

2. Green's Dubbel Dark Ale (7% ALC/VOL). Dark. Nutty brown. Fizzy. Like a less sweet Newcastle (if you ever tried that before becoming Gluten Free).
Green's Amber Ale (gluten free) - sorry it's a bit blurry...

3. Green's Amber Ale (6% ALC/VOL). Sweet. Dark cranberry red. Frothy. Little fizzy.  Good with piece of chocolate...random, I know.
