Pours cloudy copper huge head very foamy about 2 inches . Aroma is very much ipa graprfruit. Flavor is different smooth up front and almost a tick sweet giving way to some mild sour characteristics and finishes very mild. There is also a faint candi flavor at the end This is a really nice beer ! Never had one that looks and smells like this and then taste is way different than the smell topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours amber with a khaki head. Aroma is bretty. Flavor is light malt, citrus, bretty sourness, with a dry finish. NikkTwist (3306) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Poured a rich clear amber with an overflowing pillowy white head. Lots going on here. Similar to Orval, but with a lot more disparate notes dancing around. Grassy fruity yeast esters. Citrus peel hop bitterness. Slight peaty smokiness. Brett sour. Complex playground of flavors. Much better than anticipated.

Bottle from Rick’s in Alexandria. Served in a Green Flash Rayon Vert chalice.
Pours a nice, fairly-clear amber color with a nice off-white head. Good retention of the foamy white head. Some lacing on the way down and a good cap and collar throughout.
The nose carries some moderate hopping as well as a nice fruitiness and light earthy character. Great presence in the nose, really serving to complement the hops.
Flavor brings a nice bit of fruity hops along with some earth, light malt, and some Brett through the background. Body is light-to-medium with a good bitterness and a nice bit of Brett and earth to really round things out. Quite dry through the finish.
This is a really fantastic beer and I’m beyond excited that it’s year round. This is finally an off-the-shelf year-round beer that is worthy of sitting beside sixers of Two Hearted in my fridge. Bravo, Green Flash.

Bottle. Murky gold with ridiculous head that just doesn’t disappear. Earthy, citrus-y, yeasty, grassy, funky. Some noticeable alcohol.

Bottle. Poured amber with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of yeast, Brett, spice, leather, and dark fruits. The flavor found spice (light pepper), Brett, and yeast. Medium body with a spice and yeast aftertaste. snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
Like Orval? Say hello to its little friend. Just don’t use a tulip, the head is a little out of control and just rockets out of the glass. Errl (2442) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2012

It’s that good you guys. Crisp, clean and refreshing with plenty of taste. I could drink 4 of these every day. Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2012
12 oz bottle. Purchased from 16th Ave. Pours a hazy orange amber with a light head. Hops and citrus to the nose with maybe a bit of toffee. Nice light malt with oranges and lemons to taste. Fruity. Nice overall balance though leaning towards the hops. A good beer.
