3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy copper big off-white head. Interesting aroma of citrus and spice and earthy yeast. Taste is not overly sweet or bitter. Good amount of malt, medium body, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish with spice. Overall this was unique and pretty good for a style thatís not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I donít know, I guess itís a 12oz bottle, but it could also be 33cl. Pours a mostly clear, bright gold with a frothy, clumpy white head. Nose is a really nice mix of Belgian yeasty esters and nice lemony hops, earthy, cloves, leafy veg, candy sugar, a little bit of birch. Flavor is sweet, spicy, candy sugar, lemons, oranges, mint, birch, earthy, grass, hay. Medium bodied finish. I know this is a take on Orval, but it needed a touch more Brett to be in the same league. As is though, itís very nice. Complex but drinkable. Could be sessionable if it wasnít 7% abv.

pours a cloudy pale gold, big pillowy head. very funky in flavor and aroma, very dry and fruity, moderately bitter, very dry finish, very satisfying. this is the real deal, definitely not a half-assed belgian attempt., and something about it comes together in a way that makes me wanna get this stuff all the time.

On tap at the Brass Tap, poured a dark golden color with aromas of pepper, spice, floral hops, and yeast esters. Flavors are the same, had a slight sweet taste that mixed with the esters and peppery yeast.

Green Flash is probably one of the most underrated breweries on the west coast... Citrusy aroma, light orange in color... Flavor is citrus, belgian yeast, spices, and slightly tart finish... Delicious beer!

Bottle. Pours hazy dark straw golden with 3-finger off-white head. Nose is a great mix of floral hops, black peppery spice, funky yeasty malt. Tastes floral, not dry but somewhat sweet, with funky yeast esters, hops, peppery and coriandery spice, and a complex finish. This one is delicious, and one of the best of its style ever made.
