5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Green Flash Rayon Vert has an extremely thick, whipped cream-type off-white head (actually it exploded everywhere when I popped the cap) and a brilliant, reddish-orange appearance, with some streaming bubbles and about the thickest lacing imaginable present on the glass. The aroma is fruit forward, with orange peel, orange juice, sugar, and possibly even Orange Julius in the smell. Taste is of the highest order- fruit, Mandarin orange, marmalade, orange peel, orange rind, white bread, white bread crust, sugar, yeast, a mild hop bitterness, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slick, and Green Flash Rayon Vert (Green Flash, in English) finishes mostly dry, smooth, mellow, and supremely drinkable. Overall, this is world class to the hilt. Incredible!

Either I got a bad batch or this beer is whack. HUGE carbonation level, spurted all over my desk and took 20 min to pour a decent looking beer. Yeasty flavor is about all I get other than my mouth wanting to explode from the carbonation. Some orange I guess. All 4 bottles in the pack had the same crazy carbonation. Reminds me of a high gravity homebrew bottled way too early.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy bright gold with a thick frothy white head. Tastes like pine and grassy hop bitterness, with some funkyness, light bready malts, and some citrus fruit, and with some lingering hop resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells grassy, like pine, and citrus hops, biscuit and straw malts, orange peel, lemon, herbs, and some funk.

Clear amber, rocky cream head. Zesty citric aroma and bread crust. Nicely balanced, leaves a bread crust aftertaste. A mix of yeasty, simple malts and hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 Four pack at Hopey for 4.99 Good ol Hopey. I am intrigued. Really difficult pour- super carbonated. Big soapy lacey head over a nice murky amber brew. Lots of citrus - grapefruit, lemon - upfront with plenty of funk int the mid-palate and finish. Strong brett character. Belgian yeast really works here. Lots going on. Dry and crisp and green apple bitter at the end. It’s well done.
03/02/2015 More funk than I remember. Distinct barnyard aftertaste. The older the beer gets the more prominent funk gets and the rest fades into background. Somewhat out of balance.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours cloudy golden with a massive head.
Grapefruit notes, tastes of mellow tropical citrus hops with a hint of spice. Masses of carbonation on this one but still very tasty

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, probably picked up at Whole Foods in NYC. Bright burnished orange gold colour, very high carbonation some minor gushing. Gosh actually tastes a bit like Orval. A very successful attempt at an American Belgian, the main difference I guess being a more citrusy fruity fresher less spicy hop mixture, and this is a bit cleaner, less complex and subtle. Still pretty good though!
