look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
APPEARANCE: Very pale, yellowish-orange with another monster, foamy head from Green Flash. The beer below is very lively looking and a bit hazy. The head retention is almost too strong given that it is so big. Five minutes after the pour I am still waiting for it to drop a bit before I taste it. The lacing, however, is exceptional.
SMELL: The smell is not as strong as some other Green Flash beers are, but it is very nice. The nose is fairly typical of a saison with lemony citrus and a little funk. It adds a twist, however, with a peppery, ginger aroma as well.
TASTE: Peppery spice with plenty of lemon and orange get this thing started. In the middle the ginger from the nose makes a brief appearance, along with a hint of banana and clove, while the beer dries out as it reaches the finish. That finish also comes along with a slight funk. Actually the mild funk seems to be more a part of the aftertaste. I also think there may be some candi sugar in here, which makes me wonder just what the ABV is. It could be a lot higher than some have guessed.
MOUTHFEEL: Very light bodied and playful. The carbonation provides more of a tickling tease than it does a genuine sparkle. Slightly sweet up front, the finish is very dry.
OVERALL: The Saison Diego is a solid example of the style. Unlike many of Green Flash’s other brews, this one is not pushing the envelope in terms of the definition of the style. It is quite tasty and I will reach for this one again when I’m in the mood for a Saison.
