Went up to the new brewery and picked up a growler of this...pours a brilliant straw gold with a silky white head that leaves plenty of rings around the glass. Even after it's been sitting for awhile there's still head on it! Aromas of tart orange, lemon, some faint belgian esters of clove. The taste mirrors the aroma with lots of citric flavors, and an element of tangy, tartness. Some spice comes through towards the end, along with dryness. It gets a little puckering once the glass warms up. This is a very well attenuated beer with a light body, and a dry finish, which is exactly what a great saison should be. Overall, highly drinkable and refreshing...I like how its only 4.3%, seems there aren't many Belgian's out there with this much character at a lower ABV. Another great job by GF.

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!
