3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark orange pour with a hazy body and beautiful rocky white head. The nose is quite curious- lots of woody brett incarnations that can be likened to cedar, fresh bark mulch, and tropical fruits. A nice herbal dough follows. Big citrus and nectar fruit in the flavor with dry earthen brett, herbaceous florals, and a doughy finish. Medium body with great effervescence- caressing and pillowy with a dry finish.

Hazy gumwood pour with a gorgeous, large frothy head. Nose holds really nice cedar, hemlock, bark mulch, and touches of grapefruit rind, grass, and subtle citric funk. Good lemon flesh comes through on the nose as well. The flavor brings more doughy yeast, some dry wood chips, and a beautiful tannic loamy brett character; very unique combination. Palate starts with that medium bodied, semi-dry breadiness, then turns to increased dryness on the finish. Lovely stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 bottle. late in the glass iím noticing a bit of toffee chew malt to go with the must, apricot fuzz and tart cheese rind brett and hop combination. smooth, dry and tart with medium-light body. brett is horsey and waxy and appropriately pungent, perfume / floral-heavy at times. quite good, though would prefer a version made at around 5%.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours fairly clear copper (with sediment left in bottle) with a very large sudsy light beige head. The aroma has more brett than expected giving a íwildí presence. There is also nectar fruits, lightly toasty malt, spiciness, grapefruit zest, pine and woodiness. Also aspects blend together very well. Medium / light body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with some earthy / grapefruit hoppiness, funky buggy brett, mild toast, nectar fruits, pepper, earthiness and wood. The finish has a yeast quality that strikes a nice balance between the brett and American ale yeast. Also added is some light leather and huskiness. The beer is fairly dry, but the finish is extra dry. There is a lot of complexity going on here. This really comes across to me as a US version of Orval. Can wait to see how this one ages. Love this a bunch now, but may bump up the rating even more if the aging goes well. Easily my favorite Green Flash beer.

Light citrus and brett on the nose. Hazy orange appearance. A subtle fruitiness comes out, and I think this is due to the combination of aromas, that is - the combination of brett and the citrus hop aroma. Very nice aroma. The brett isnít too much, which Iíve experienced in the recent past. Nice orange fruitiness with a crackling brett flavor. Leaves a nice effervescent bubbling on my tongue, and dries íer out a bit. Subtle yeast backing is helping give this beer and even bolder approach. One thing that Iím impressed with is the crisp and creamy texture. Interesting stuff, and I love the fact that itís in 4-packs.

Large rocky white head, lasting, goodly amount of clingy, droopy lace. Clear copper till i swirled the last few ounces of the bottle and dumped it in. Spicey nose, citrus, lil clove and bubblegum. Body is light and a hint oily, low carbonation. Light bready malts, dry and spicey hops, floral notes. Wheres this brett they speak of ?? I,m not gettin it. Dry, fruity finish, lil grassy, spicey. Not gettin too funky, damn. Age the other bottles and see what happens.From statelineliquors.

poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a nice and rich orange/gold color with a nice frothy head
very complex with aromas of funk, oranges, florals, spice aromas and a bit of grains. Excellent depth on the aromas as well
medium/full bodied with very balanced flavors of spices, funk, oranges and a hint of various citrus flavors.
A quality belgian ale. The wild yeasts add good complexity along with a real good feel.
