Green's Quest Tripel Blonde Ale

This gluten-free beer makes the top of my list.  Green's Tripel Blonde Ale is a Belgian-style ale that has more complexity than any other three beers put together.  It's fruity, yet dry, with zero sugars.  It's light, but with a bitter undertone that balances out the fruity nose.  It has a beautiful profile, but none of the single ingredients comes forward more than the others.  Made from millet, buckwheat, rice, sorghum, and hops, this beer stands out from the small crowd of gluten-free beers available with its interesting complexity.  It goes well on its own or pairs brilliantly with any number of foods, from imported goat cheese to hot dogs.

The Green's Tripel Blonde is hands down my favorite gluten-free beer.  I mean, look at that head!  I actually had to wait several minutes before I could pour the whole glass it was so foamy on top.  Beautiful.

It is one of my favorites, and I like it best out of the three Green's beers.

I'm not a huge beer drinker, but over the last year, I've tried the top rated GF beers, mostly at restaurants.
Brunehaut's gluten-extracted amber ale is my definite #1.

I haven't been able to find Brunehaut's beers in Portland but I hear it's pretty amazing.
