This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking glossy orange to amber color. A nice foamy white one finger head started off the look on the top of this beer. After the head died off, the lacing was mainly stringy to a slight spider web fashion.
The smell was fresh cut grass with a large amount of yeasty breadiness over a sweet lemon to orange aroma leading to a slight bitterness. Light coriander/spice graced the back end of the aroma.
The taste was mainly the same and amplified the yeasty part and the sweet lemon. As it warmed, I got the flavor of the coriander/spice a bit more.
The mouthfeel was slightly sharp but still carried a fair smooth yeastiness with a slight bitter citrus rolling over my tongue.
Overall, yeah, can ya tell by the way I talk in this one how much I like this one? Though I haven't had too many saisons, glad I studied up a bit before I said something on this totally enthralling brew.

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.

Clear yellow with a white covering. Aroma of malt, orange, lemon, and a slight basement funkiness. Tastes of lemon, white grape, faint brett and yeast. Light and dry. Nothing wrong here, but nothing to write home about.
