This beer reminds me of both a Belgian golden ale and a Saison... relatively low hop profile, but definitely there. Belgian yeast predominates. fcjack1 (272) - Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2014
On tap at the Eastside. Pours a orange-ish Red. Thin white head. Scent is very sour. Taste is pretty sour as well. Can’t really taste the plum. But, tasty either way. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2011
12 oz bottle multiple times enjoyed. Ruby amber pour with effervescent head. This is the perfect example of Belgian IPA in my mind. Great mix of Belgian flavoring, from the yeast I assume. Awesome sharp hoppiness. Crisp and clean. And finally a great smack of wildness/Bretts. Light clean high citrus. I’d call it an amazing session beer if it weren’t 7%abv. Don’t taste much of the alcohol either. Loved it after tasting so I bought a case for the summertime. Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Rerate of the same batch of beer i rated the first time however, this is now 2 yrs old. Pours hazy orange with a huge fluffy eggshell head lot of fizzyness. just a huge head. thisbeer has turned into a brett bomb!!!! its fantastic!!! this is even better than i was expecting! brett all over the flavors. still some lingering hops. way better than i was expecting. nice work Green Flash!
bottle-pours lite orange with a steady fizzy white head that lasts the whole time. somewhat of a foamer when first poured. maybe because of all the brett? I dunno. nose is kind of wierd-brett funk, butter (diacytl?), esters, lemongrass and lite hops. flavors show the brett up front with lingering dusty and lemon esters with a touch of bittering hops. A cool twist on the style and should be intersting if this beer develops more brett character. If that is diacytl, what will happen to it? long fruity pebble finish with lingering bitter hops and funk. decent! bhensonb (15251) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle from Schultsc. Asked for a local I hadn’t rated, the man came through big time with this one. Pours hazy amber with a foamy/creamy/fizzy off-white head. It’s like pineapple in the barnyard for aroma. Med body. Flavor is fruit of strange types quickly passed oer by an astringent earthiness. It is slightly sweet, mostly dry. Balanced I guess. The barnyard aspect is just excellent.

Another brew thanks to Terminus at the Annual Black Friday tasting. It pours deep clear gold with a giant light tan head of billowing foam. The aroma offers up apples, pears and some tart acidic lemon to almost lime notes. The taste is somewhat tart and a little earthy lime. It then picks up additional thin notes of sweet apple and pear off in the background. Tasty stuff. I’d do this again. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2013
500mL at a tasting. Pours a light golden, hefty Brett carbonation and rocky, hop oil foam. Nose is Brett, Rayon Very style cedar and perfume, mildly chemical/sharp phenolic. Taste is woody cedar, spicy, juicy yellow fruits. Palate is spicy, dry, aerated, refreshing. Balancing hop bite. Good stuff, I’m told it is the prototype for Rayon Vert. 78samh (287) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Glass at the Eastside pours a murky pink reminiscent of grapefruit juice. Strong fruity aroma. A nice sour flavor. Heavily fruity. Super mouth puckering sour! DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Awesome belgian ale, on tap at the brewery, fresh, really enjoyed, strong rich golden pour, sweet TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft at The Birch. Dark brown pour with a short tan head. Nose is nutty, fruity and slightly yeasty with caramel, toasted malt and dark bready notes. Taste is soft fruit, nutty, Belgian yeast, toasted dark bread, sweet malt, caramel notes and soft hops. Medium bodied and slightly chewy with a dense bubbly carbonation. Ends with more nutty flavors, Belgian yeast, soft fruit, toasted malt and dark bread. I’m thinking there may be different styles of Treasure Chest as some early reviews mention golden ales. This is certainly a brown and as I recall, 5.7% ABV.
