Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Amber hue. Large cascading, frothy head. Settles slowly, and unevenly. Spotty lacing.

S: Pine resin, and lots of lemon citrus. Lavender, fermented raspberry, and freshly cut grass.

T: Bitter pine and hay, with just a slight hint of raspberry.

M: Crisp and steely. Bitter throughout, with a very dry finish.

D: The bitterness will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Amber hue, with a large head and some slight lacing. Nose is really piney, accentuated with citrus and other fruit notes, with a really floral character. Bitter pine and hay with a touch of fruit. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery.

Funky for a pale ale. Is there some Brett in here? Whatever Belgian yeast Green Flash uses in their Belgian pales I'm not crazy about. Lightly tart. Fruity. Interesting. Ultimately, I don't think it's for me.

Bottled July 2012

a: Heavily hazed peachy golden. Towering head makes for a long pouring process.

s: Lightly funky bready grains, bright fresh lemon zest, peppery spice.

t: Comes across just as the smell suggests it would. Light Brett works great with lemony hops, apricits, and earthy grains.

m: Light and airy, not surprisingly.

o: Been too long since I've had fresh Orval to compare the two, so I'll just say I really like this beer a lot.
