On-tap at the Beachwood BBQ, in Seal Beach, CA, had 2 servings because it was so good,
A: Pours a bright golden colour, with a somewhat fizzy white head which has surprisingly good retention and leaves some nice Belgian lacing.
S: Great nose, one of the best smelling beers I have had in a long time, fruit, flowers, orange, smells a lot like a summer meadow.
T: Taste is fantastic, lemon zest, sweet orange, mixes with mild coriander spice and pepper, malty, dry, but has enough residual sugar to bring it to the forefront at times, yeast brings some Granny Smith apple character adding tart acidity to the already complex flavour, absolutely delicious, the best Saison I have ever had.
M: Mouthfeel is superb for this style of beer, dry, smooth, very easy to drink.
D: This beer is real good, could have drunk this all day if it weren't $5.50 a pop, would drink this wherever it's on-tap, haven't been this excited about a new brew since PtE and Firestone 11, how do they get that much flavour into a 4.5% beer? Great job Green Flash.

Picked up a bomber at Total Wine in mid-November for $8.99. Given the "Summer" moniker i am not sure how well this beer has held up over time.
Beer poured golden with a massive white head that is leaving lacing behind in my Duvel tulip.
Nose is grainy with some hints of citrus.
Taste is grainy and musty with orange peel and pepper.
Mouthfeel is lively on the palate yet smooth.
Overall this is an outstanding session beer, full of flavor and life! Green Flash has done quite well with this brew!
