Aroma is citrusy, lightly hopped, noticable yeast and a bit of dough. Pours is clear yellow topped with white head and a small touch of bubbles. Taste is a weird mix of bitter and strong yeast feedback, almost a touch sour before melting back behind more bitter.

11th October 2008. GABF. Wasn’t sure what style this was meant to be - my notes said ’hoppy saison’ so not too far out. Finishes with a warming glow!

Pours orangish-yellow with a white head. The aroma is very fruity, with a big Belgian yeast component. Smells very similar to a Belgian tripel. The flavor is fruity with some hop bitterness as well as a strong Belgian yeast character. Medium mouthfeel.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2010
(Sample Date: 5/17/2009 Source:Other) Caramel, candi sugar, and spicy yeast character in aroma. Slightly cloudy orange amber. Light peach fruitiness and some alcohol warming. Peppery yeast character. Very high bitterness. Finish is quite dry with hefty residual bitterness.

A deep hazed golden pour, topped with a frothy white head. Good nose of hops with spices, citrus, yeast. Tastes sweet and of candy, tropical fruit,pear, and has a massive hop flavor of pine and citrus. Tasty!

Explosive hops up in here, both the abv% and trippel sweetness are perfectly tempered. Long lingering hop/citrus aftertaste. Gorgeous cloudy color w/sediment, mouth is thick and very nice. The only brew I have for comparison is Stone Cali-Belgique, and I love that brew, but in terms of gelling these styles Cali-Belgique is amateur hour compared to this.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Poured clear and amber with an almost two-finger white head and lots of lacing. The aroma was floral, herbal and pine hops with plenty of sweet malts and a bit of spicy yeast. The flavor was fresh floral hops with some herbal and pine to it. Lots of sugary malts and yeast that you’d identify in a tripel. Medium bodied with a very dry mouthfeel. A really nice mash-up.

Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Unusual but solid. Just like all green flash beers i’ve tried. Can definitely taste the blend of both styles which is kinda cool. Alcohol is hidden well too. This sucker sneaks up on ya. Might drink again.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Very belgiany. i can tell this bottle must be old, i don’t detect the hops i was expecting and i hear other people commenting on. nice sweetness, definitely well made. with this much age on it it’s like a nice triple, i’d love to try a fresh bottle some day though.

3.7
ManvsCity (183) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Good hoppy West Coast style IPA that feels like it’s blended with a Belgian golden ale. Thick white head and clear light amber body from the 22 oz bottle leaves spectacular lacing. Mild, pleasant aroma of floral hops, caramel, and sourdough bread. The Belgian yeast is well behaved in a waltz with Northwest hop bitters and mellow malts. The combination comes off spicy/peppery, with a whiff of alcohol dryness on the finish.
