4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from Frugal McDoogal’s. Pours a very cloudy light yellow with an immense white head. The aroma lets me know this is going to be a complex and dry beer. It’s very floral with bread, lots of citrus zest and an herbal bite. The flavor has a bread quality like I would like a pilsener to have, but with a giant floral and citrus explosion. I love that the Belgian yeast is not overpowering or overly spicy. This is definitely more about the hops. It reminds me of a dry Belgian golden ale, but with the graininess of a wheat beer and the hops of an unfiltered IPA. I was at first mildly disappointed at the lack of PNW hop destruction unleashed on my palate, but I quickly embraced what this beer was intended to be and fell in love halfway through the bottle. I want more of this stuff.

Bottle from Bruisn Ales. Pours yellow with an inch of white foam. Has a bit of orange on the nose. Has a nice citrus, grapefruit thing on the tongue. Finish lingers a bit. Interesting twist on the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jesse. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of coarse white head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is hoppy, quite resinous, and piney. Flavor is hoppy, mildly bitter, resinous hops, with a bitter aftertaste that lingers. Hop aroma is more intense than the taste. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and relatively smooth texture. A pleasant, citrus, moderately hoppy white IPA.

Green Flash is always on point. Lunch Pin pours a cloudy yellow / light golden color with a tall white head. Smells herbal and maybe oaked. Very herbal taste with a malty finish. You will find hops, little citrus, and a little honey hit your palate. Another awesome beer by Green Flash. One of my favorite breweries.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange-ish head, big white head - in fact it was kind of a gusher. Smells citrusy, vaguely herbal, and a bit woody. Flavor is nice bits of citrus, bits of savory herbs, and some citrus as it warms.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow pour with white head and lace. Aroma is a citrus/saison aroma for me. Earthy and citrusy. Citrus hops, floral notes, dry malty finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Unique to say the least

Solid wheat aroma with some citrus, lemon, cloves, banana, black pepper???, and yeast. Almost reminiscent of a hefeweisen. Flavor brings out the hops a little. Different.
