Bottle. Murky gold with ridiculous head that just doesn’t disappear. Earthy, citrus-y, yeasty, grassy, funky. Some noticeable alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells subtly of Belgian yeast with aromas of grass and spice. Like other green flash Belgian inspired beers, this is hoppier than a regular Belgian, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but in this case I think this beer is a little too Americanized to be called "Belgian style". Still quite enjoyable

A hazy dark yellow beer with a large frothy head. The aroma is yeast, a nice fruitiness and bubble gum with some piney hops. The flavor is mildly bitter with nice yeast character and fruitiness. Pretty delicious.

Appearance - Hazy orange, massive head

What a fantastic brew! The scent is heavy of yeast and hay mainly, while the flavor explodes with hops and grapefruit with a classic yeast body. Can’t wait to try some more of these Green Flash beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a rich clear amber with an overflowing pillowy white head. Lots going on here. Similar to Orval, but with a lot more disparate notes dancing around. Grassy fruity yeast esters. Citrus peel hop bitterness. Slight peaty smokiness. Brett sour. Complex playground of flavors. Much better than anticipated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a Green Flash Rayon Vert chalice.
Pours a nice, fairly-clear amber color with a nice off-white head. Good retention of the foamy white head. Some lacing on the way down and a good cap and collar throughout.
The nose carries some moderate hopping as well as a nice fruitiness and light earthy character. Great presence in the nose, really serving to complement the hops.
Flavor brings a nice bit of fruity hops along with some earth, light malt, and some Brett through the background. Body is light-to-medium with a good bitterness and a nice bit of Brett and earth to really round things out. Quite dry through the finish.
This is a really fantastic beer and I’m beyond excited that it’s year round. This is finally an off-the-shelf year-round beer that is worthy of sitting beside sixers of Two Hearted in my fridge. Bravo, Green Flash.
