Picked up a bomber at Total Wine in mid-November for $8.99. Given the "Summer" moniker i am not sure how well this beer has held up over time.

Beer poured golden with a massive white head that is leaving lacing behind in my Duvel tulip.

Nose is grainy with some hints of citrus.

Taste is grainy and musty with orange peel and pepper.

Mouthfeel is lively on the palate yet smooth.

Overall this is an outstanding session beer, full of flavor and life! Green Flash has done quite well with this brew!

On tap at Sycamore, Columbia, MO.

A - Poured a cloudy, golden yellow color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled yeasty and spicy with some grain-like aromas.

T - It had a nice spicy bite with some floral notes. Good grain and caramel flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice sessionable saison.

Straw yellow with nice large bubbles, fizzy head that builds nicely then diminishes to a slight lace

Lemon, belgian yeasty funk, grass and a touch of honey and coriander. 

Slightly funked, clove and ginger are present, but there is a nice lemon overtone. 

Light and refreshing- great summer ale. There is great carbonation fuzz that keeps your mouth happy.

On tap at Terasas.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow, nice creamy white head, little lace.

Grassy lemon zest nose, with yeasty malts.

Creamy sweet malts up front, spicy middle and slight dry finish. Good clean yeasts, clove and lemon and maybe a touch of banana

Good saison lighter and more refreshing and sessions better than most saisons.
