3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at Get Real NY. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and toast. Smooth, big and boozy, candy all over it. Long sweet grapefruit notes. A bit boozy, but full of nice candy malt.

from erzbierschof.ch - hazy amber-bronze colour under a solid bright creamy white foam; nice lacework; estery and perfumy aroma, notes of coriander and apples; full-bodied and with a fair sweetness, pretty sticky and chewy palate and with a decent bitterness; fruity hoppy finish with some residual sugars

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark honey gold, light tope head, ok retention, with AWESOME spider web lacing...A medium aroma of nice floral hops start to finish, not complex but alluring...The taste is what separates this here and introduces a whole new style of the blend of tripel and ipa that is advertisted. There is a nice floral hop start but a piney finish, its simply amazing and intriguing.
A wonderful beer well worth trying with great depth on the palate.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
2009 bottle, Iím told: Musty pear, apricot, and wheat malt, surprisingly bready for Green Flash. Hazy orange, medium yellow lacing head. Apple, shortbread, grapefruit flavor with hints of banana and pear as well. Lemon zest and apricot finish. Alcohol is well concealed. Fantastically complex, with ill defined transitions. Muddled, but oh so wonderfully delicious. Extremely unique. I swear I thought I rated this before, but I never remember anything tasting quite like this, and this is memorable. Maybe this is one of those beers that absolutely must be aged.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy orangish copper color that is topped by a one finger thick white head. Nose is sweet and spicy with banana, citrus, and sweet candy up front, followed by clove, vanilla, grass, and a touch of funky yeast and alcohol. Taste starts with sweetness and spices mixed with perfumey hop bitterness. Earthy and herbal tones come in the middle, then finishes with warming alcohol and dry grassiness. Medium bodied beer that is crisp from start to finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a fair, white head. Nose is nice. Banana, belgian yeast, and perhaps, surprisingly, some dark fruits. Very easy drinking for 9.2% ABV. Upon sipping, you get more banana, perhaps a bit of cloves, some lemon, and the alcohol is only slightly noticeable on the tale end. Green Flash proves that it can do more more than just fantastic heavily hopped beers. One of the better breweries that Iíve encountered over the past year or two.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz poured into a pint glass. This beer pours dark gold with a white head. Head lasts for a while then leaves great lacing on the glass. The beer smells of bitter citrus and spruce, with a lingering sweetness. The Taste is a perfect balance of Belgian sweetness and west coast IPA bitterness. Very nice together. Grapefruit and pine dominate at first and the finish is the sweetness and then the bitter again. Nice job.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden orange with a small white head, smells strongly of yeast with some sweet malt and some hops. Taste is all Belgian trip to me. Lots of wheat and yeast flavors with a small dose of hoppiness. Not bad for a belgian style trippel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bomba into a snifta. No date on bottle... Iíll get to that later. Pours a really pretty amber waves of grain color. About an inch of fluffy head; not much lacing. Aroma of alcohol, honey and bitey hops. Mouthfeel is pretty light; kinda nice. Unfortunately, too carbonated and fizzy. Taste is of bitey hops, a little pine... mostly grapefruit rind. Nice Belgian taste too. Overall a decent Belgian trippel. Iím not sure this is too fresh. Iíll try to get a fresh bottle and re-rate.... Green Flash, please ID your bottles!
