Poured into a snifter

A: A hazy soft yellow with off-white one-finger head that settled quickly. Curtainy lacing.

S: Funky, barnyard (oats, hay), Brett, Belgian yeast, lemons.

T: Smooth and semi-sweet. The citrus slides in with a nice Belgian yeastiness backing it up. Fresh lemons, a bit floral. Very summery. Brett and cloves in the background.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation. A dry finish.

O: A very decent saison from Green Flash. Would try again. Very sessionable.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bright yellow color with a 1 inch head, lots of carbonation. Smell is musty, spices, yeast. Taste is lots of spice, some lemons, a bit of mustiness as well, very easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but there are better saisons out there.

Howler fill at Liquor Shed in Casper.

A hazy light gold pour that produced about an inch of foam but it never goes away. Lacing? Yep.

It smells some what spicy with some of that ginger, coriander, hint of pepper, and a dash of lemon or orange?

The taste matches the smell. Good gingery notes and oranges, The ginger gives me a little bit of heat when I swish the beer in my mouth. I don't really get any coriander but it's still a good tasting brew.

Light body and carbonation.

A pretty good Saison and the fact that it's only 4.2% abv is something I like aboot it. Yeah, the body does suffer but there's no problem drinking the 32oz in one sitting.
