3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a very orange amber color with a quite large off white head. ARoma of yeast, brett, earth, grass, and must. Flavor wasnít as pronounced as the aroma, in a good way. Still, I am not really feeling this hybrid style, and havenít ever loved Brettanomyces all that much. Not my thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a white head and a yeasty, sweet citrus, funkiness in the aroma. Flavours has that off barnyard funkiness as well as bubblegum? Not really my cup of tea.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass.
Aroma: a funkiness is present. smells sort of like antiseptic or medical cleanser. also some floral hops and hay/grass. unriped fruit, possibly oranges. very strange
Appearance: a mountain of head formed that was thick and lingered for so long. like whipped cream on a sundae. slightly hazy and copper colored
Taste: medium sweet and light bitter. lightly sour.
Palate: medium body, thin texture. average carbonation. slightly metallic aftertaste and light bitter aftertaste.
Overall: Was surprised by the crazy amount of head on this one. my second glass I was able to get all of the bottle conditioning yeast into it and it improved the taste. Pretty tasty after getting past the original funkiness present. I dont think i would have liked this if i only had a taster.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is spiced apple, slight bretty funk. and mildy spicy hop buzz. Taste is a muted version of the smell, with more brett skunkiness (not a bad thing). Could have used a bit more carbonation, but they may have been leaving room for more from the brett.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours light amber with a monster topping. The aroma is brutally wild ... Funky and sickeneningly sweet. Uh oh. Thank goodness that sense of infection doesnít fully carry to the tongue. It still has a Brett-like funk, but it mellows. Gamey. Not my favorite Green Flash. Guess Iím an exception here, but I donít care for the combination here.. (#4517, 3/6/2012)

Got this as an extra from Pat, thanks a lot for this one.
Smells awesome. Really citrusy and spicy almost. I get the hops but this smells rather belgian ale-esque. The taste is similar to the nose. A nice funkyness and hop and malt on the taste buds. Fantastic and I want more of this stuff!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful rusty orange. Fresh nose with a hint of melon. Layered, complex palate going from Brett/yeast to spices finally landing on tart green apple through the finish. Fresh and clean.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in the seen Flash tap room. Dark gold, cinnamon aroma. Sort of a funk to this beer, but a real cinnamon after taste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting. Nose is citrus hoppy with a subtle horse like aroma. The beer is hazy reddish copper with a pillowy white head. The taste is citrus hop, more of the banyardness, and a little metallic touch. The body is medium with a bitter twang. Good but different.
