Served in a tulip.

Apeanrance: A cloudy brown slight orange tint to it, honestly looks inctedible. The head rose maybe 1/4", slightly off white with a little dab of orange to it.

Smell: Light yeast scent, too friggin light.

Taste: absolutely robust, yeasty, bready, sour and a hint of banana sweetness to it. Absolutely a hit, taste is rich enough you would think its from belgium itself.

Mouth: Medium a little light, lightly dry but no joke sticky icky afyer taste.

Overall: this brew might need a little tweaking but I will take it the way it is. Honestly for your buck it feels more like a steal....this brew plus a glass and you're good. Salud!

Green Flash makes first rate stuff but I had not previously tried this one. It's a beautiful dark brew with a nice head and lace. Very clear. The aroma is a little weak, but not offensive in any way. The taste, though full and appropriate for the style, is understated. This is not an American version, it is true to the style. It doesn't seem to need aging. This bottle was from 10-30-2012, so about 5.5 months, and it is just fine - I would not want it to settle in as it might with age.

It's a decent Belgian that I would buy again, but a bit pricey.
