3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Howler fill at Liquor Shed in Casper.
A hazy light gold pour that produced about an inch of foam but it never goes away. Lacing? Yep.
It smells some what spicy with some of that ginger, coriander, hint of pepper, and a dash of lemon or orange?
The taste matches the smell. Good gingery notes and oranges, The ginger gives me a little bit of heat when I swish the beer in my mouth. I don’t really get any coriander but it’s still a good tasting brew.
Light body and carbonation.
A pretty good Saison and the fact that it’s only 4.2% abv is something I like aboot it. Yeah, the body does suffer but there’s no problem drinking the 32oz in one sitting.

22oz bottle - poured hazy golden with a tall frothy white head. Lemon peel, orange, yeasty aroma. Flavor is slightly tart and refreshing yet a little thin and very simplistic. A decent saison none the less.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Green Flash Saison Diego is more ale than farmhouse. Pour is bright amber with a fluffy white head. Very little aroma is detected. Taste is like a good ale with little or no complexity or funk and sourness. The orange peel and ginger were understated. Saison Diego is not what most would expect from a saison but good in its own right.

Bomber. Nose is heavy coriander soup with not much else going for it, a waft oft yeast and spice but really, coriander soup. Light yellow pour with plenty of carbonation and a soapy white head. Taste is lightly sweet and tart, dusty with a few cobwebs, lemony citrus and a touch of vanilla cream, very low bitterness and subtle florality. Light body but not really watery, very effervescent and refreshing, no alcohol present. Clean but, all told, rather tame all around.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours light hazy yellow with a big creamy head. Aroma is sweet fruity yeast with cloves, hay, grass and ripe fruit with banana, as well as some peppery honey. Creamy body with soft frothy carbonation. Flavour is tart with yeast, lemon peel and spices, as well as some hoppy peach. Tart herby finish. More like a tart wit than a saison.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Pours clear hay to golden color with a large frothy head that leaves just minimal lacing. However quite a lot of large yeast particles floating around after the second pour (that is without pouring out the bottom sediment) . First sniff has an overwhelming sweet aroma of baking yeast in action. There’s also light notes of citrus, coriander, pilsner malt, mango, earth, wet hay, grass and floral. Mouth feel is dry and crisp from high carbonation with a light body. Taste is fruity with light notes of lemon peel, citrus, hay, wheat, coriander, dough and earth. Light and refreshing but could have some more depth in the aftertaste, it comes quickly with a tart and rather watery feeling. Finishes better with a balanced light and a bit tart bitterness and nice taste of coriander lingering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-10-2014 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a large foamy white head that mostly diminishes, mostly transparent/slightly hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and there are spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, fruity, earthy, lightly funky, yeast, and lightly spicy. The taste is lightly funky, fruity, malty, lightly spicy, wheat, and some tartness at the end as the beer had warmed. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. Overall, a very quaffable saison, very light and refreshing on this 70 degree Spring day.
