Winner of the recent poll was La Chouffe, a famous Belgian Trappist beer in a little fancy bottle. In comparison to Duvel (click here for the test result) I liked La Chouffe more, very good smell and taste. However, I can not cope with the strong alcohol. In summer times I like to enjoy a cold beer with low alcohol. Maybe I try La Chouffe again in winter.

I tested with a threshold of 5 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.
Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 5 ppm. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible red test line on the right of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Again please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – please see my facts page.
