4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
overcarbonated. light yellow with a huge white head of tightly packed bubbles. smells of funky lemons, and spives( pepper, minor bit of lavender, thyme, dried bell pepper). i’d enjoy ranting about "yet another belgian ipa" and i have a good 5 minutes i could do on it, but i can’t this is good. not the kind of good that appeals to all facets of me, but this is a good example of what a "belgian" ipa can be. touch down oklahoma, fuck you florida state. this is dry, and leaves that powder like note on my toingue that i am a sucker for. hopped up flavor that has a dried cantoulope flavor to it. dry, with light spice coming out with each sip. citrus is flavorfull and melds well. the yeasty flavors are perfect for thisl, little bit of funk, dry, some bread notes, and pepper.

Too many great beers in this style. Big white head that disappeared right away. Sweet Belgium nose hop back ground with apple blossoms.
Almost some barnyard. Refreshing granny smith tartness and spicyness. Lite tart and maybe some grape. Dry finish. Love it!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a hazy pale yellow color with a huge white head.
S: The nose is of sweet light fruits such as apples and pears, grass, and light malty sweetness. There is a touch of metal in there too, for some reason, along with subtle yeast esters providing some spice.
T: Sweet and bready malts with plenty of green apples, sweet pears, and floral honey-like notes. There are some nice grassy hop notes as well.
M: The body is on the light end of medium with a very lively carbonation.
D: Like pretty much everything else Green Flash does, this was a winner. Very nice and easy to drink (especially for such a high ABV beer).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at the OTM Tasting Room. The appearance is a fairly hazy yellow with a nice size white head. The aromas are bready and yeasty with some citrus hops trying to poke through. The flavors are creamy with the expected bready/yeasty tones but the new world additions really come through nice with a woody malt notes, a citrus note too. The mouth is really creamy. I really like this one. A little pricey for the bottle so I am glad I found it on tap.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is yeast, pepper and lemons. The flavor is orange citrus, wheat, yeast and alcohol. A nice, fruity Belgian ale from two good brewers. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. The cork was at first difficult to disgorge, but then shot out with a bit of the beer over-spilling the bottle. Pours a very hazy pale straw gold with a massive white head that lasted through mid-glass and coated the glass with each sip. There are dozens of streams of tiny champagne-like bubbles quickly rising from the base of the glass. The aroma is light and I am guessing being hidden by the large head. There is some mild malt along with a few whiffs of sugary sweetness and spice. The flavor is malt, mild Belgian yeast, light spice and just a touch of sugar. A bit of black pepper and lemon at the finish along with some noticeable alcohol warmth. Ok as it is, but I was expecting more.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. pours straw-like yellow, hazed, white, rocky and lacy head. nose of saison yeast and straw, but very bright and clean...do i smell the rye? maybe. maybe some coriander too..no wait...definitely some coriander. nose was refined...flavors a little less so...the sweetness is a bit overly present...and distracting..making the spices seem overdone, the alcohol doesnt play in to that scenario very well either...making it all a bit cumbersome. There’s some lemony touches throughout...but the sweetness and alcohol make this beer a bit overdone and not so great. Not a big fan of this...its a hot, sweet somewhat mess....but the nose was nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale golden coloured beer. The nose is surprisingly light and soft. There is a touch of soft berryish fruitiness as well as some light spice, but it is quite light. The palate is quite soft – there is a touch of Belgian malt but the yeast and spice are very subdued. Light lingering spice. It’s nice, but much more subtle than I would have imagined.
