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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - murky, deep crimson color with huge white head

Smell - fruity and floral, I'm getting lemon, lime, strawberry, apple, yeast

Taste - green apple, lemon, lime, yeast

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, full carbonation, slightly sweet upfront and then the funkiness tartness and sourness kick in the aftertaste

Overall - good and enjoyable beer.

Price point - $3.19/12 oz bottle
