Pours a hazy straw color with a tight, fizzy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of a bit of citrus and spiciness.

Tastes of some pretty mild fruit notes with a spiciness on the back end. Citrus and a bit of sour apple make up the fruits. A touch of grainy sweetness adds in the middle. On the end notes of coriander, white pepper, and some earthy notes.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, I find it to be quite a good saison, but I wish the price was a little less.

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!

On tap at Sycamore, Columbia, MO.

A - Poured a cloudy, golden yellow color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled yeasty and spicy with some grain-like aromas.

T - It had a nice spicy bite with some floral notes. Good grain and caramel flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice sessionable saison.
