Tannish brown and mostly clear with a touch of haze, a monstrous, lasting head and sticky lace.
Very spicy with tons of Belgian yeast character. Strong and enticing smell, almost like a spring day on the beach, mixes with flavor experience nicely. Tons of earth, green grasses.
It’s right up there with other top Belgian pale ales, and that’s a pretty heavy-hitting list. A top notch beer in any category.

Poured from 1 pt (6 fl oz) bottle. Very active head. Pours deep golden yellow with nice white head. Aroma of apricot, orange, yeast, sour vinegar. Very oily but smooth. Mild hops. Touch of sour as if its a very very light gueze with a dry finish.

From a bottle. Light gold pour with a big foamy head. Fluffy and light in the mouth with a bit of sugar and belgian yeast & spice. Some fruity hoppiness added with the US hop addition. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hale amber with a large, thick, white head. Aroma is banana and apricot. Some grapes there as well as vinous and vinegary notes. Taste is a lot of pale malts, somewhat flowery with a dose of dried fruit. A bit vinegary and light sour. Palate is medium, somewhat carbonated. One of the better attempts by Americans at Belgian styles. Not very memorable, but a great quaffer.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Bottled 355ml. Deeply inviting brett accented nose. A nice take on the style. I enjoyed this beer tremendously. Perhaps a pending re-rate- I didn’t take any notes unfortunately.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Hazy deep bronze-golden body topped by a very lively head that collapses into rocky islands and leaves behind a pornographic canvas of lace. Bold nose redolent with herbal and floral hop character, light funk and spice. there is brett here, assertively so, but without the usual accompanying acidity or sourness. Instead there is bready yeasty pillowy softness with lively carbo and herbal dryness. Incredibly brilliant. Oh Green Flash, how I love thee!

Bouteille de 12oz. Merci Patrick. Bière qui se présente avec une forte effervescence, la mousse est beige, épaisse et durable. Le nez est un assemblage de brett, de fleurs blanches avec une touche sucrée. La bouche est longue, les fleurs sont succulentes. Les bretts bien présents mais pas agressants. La finale est sèche à souhait. Bravo.
