The beer is a golden straw yellow with light foamy white head. Nice webbed lacing and slightly hazy. Beer smells faintly spiced with clove and grains of paradise. A bready scent mixes in with some dank yeast.

Upon sipping the spices are far more evident and a little overpowering in my opinion. Too much grains of paradise. The interesting yeast scent doesn't appear much once sipping, which would have been more interesting. Mouthfeel is light, very drinkable and carbonation comes off being fizzy.

Nt my favorite from a brewery I often enjoy. Reminiscent of Sam Adam's summer ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Pours a lightly hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, lightly dry to earthy tartness. In the taste, dry earthiness all the way through. A small bite, but mainly smooth with a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry earthiness to clean aftertaste. Light, lacking flavor and aroma, kind of one dimensional.

Poured from a bomber into a Teku glass. Clear gold in color with a substantial bubbly head. Has a fairly strong aroma of banana, cloves and a bit of barnyard funk. These are all present in the taste, but everything's fairly muddled, almost like it has been cut with water. Medium light mouth with a lot of carbonation, leaving it dry and crisp. This is the first Green Flash brew that has left me disappointed. I much prefer their Rayon Vert.

A- Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a clear golden orangish color with an off-white head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is citrus, apples, and spices with fruity esters and an almost chardonnay-like character in the nose as well.

T- The taste features malt and a moderate sweetness up front with the spices coming in the dry finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied and heavily carbonated.

O- Overall, I would say this is a pretty average saison. It is not out of this world but not terrible either.

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy light golden colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is bright lemon and banana.
The taste is watery, mild lemon bitter and grainy.
The texture has a nice fizzy to it with an overall medium body.
The flavor lagged in this brew. Borderline flavorless.
