3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours golden with a nice head. The nose has the expected farmyard and green hoppy/apple notes. There’s more of the same on the taste. So, it’s typical saison but perhaps it’s a little low on alcohol to have the balance I’d prefer. I think the sour yeast and bitter hops combination is a little too much. It could do with just a little sweetness. Overall, solid but not one I’ll choose to have again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aroma, like a hefeweiss almost, without the bannana. spice, citrus and baked bisquit aroma. Deep cloudy golden color, very full off white head (poured into a Duvel glass). Creamy mouthfeel entrance, then turns a bit zippy and citrusy, almost like a radler. Medium light body, and has a very refreshing element, as is the style for this kind of beer. Constant undertow of bisquit malt and yeast , overlapped by citrus , tangerine, lemon, and some slight cloves. Yeast is also predominant, slight bittering hops at the end. Green Flash has a winner as usual.
