COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Green Flash 7th Anniversary Belgian Red Rye Ale Here’s an adventurous brew for the adventurous craft beer drinker. Our 7th Anniversary brew brings you further American brewing innovation by using rye malt, German specialty malts, fresh American hops and Belgian yeast. This very unique beer is scrumptious with fruity yeast and spicy qualities from the rye and hops. Floral, spicy and citrusy hops lead you to a finish that is nice and clean considering how much flavor is packed into each glass. 5.7% ABV, 35 IBU

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Ruddy amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is really herbal and spicy with loads of rye malt character. A bit of soft chewy, grassy character over a bright lemony/citrusy nose. Quite bready with a lot of soft fruit and spice balancing it out. It’s pretty understated compared to some of their other anniversary beers, but it’s very nice.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger. Dark amber red with very lacy egg white head. Aroma is floral sweet and not much else, notes of faint Belgian spice/yeast. Taste is awesome - floral hoppiness mixes beautifully with fainter Belgian yeast/spice. More hops than spice, very enjoyable.

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Good. Pours a nice, red hue with a soft white head. Mild and inviting aroma of sweet malt. The flavor is light and sweet up front. Very dry and modestly hoppy, somewhat floral. Finish is dryer still.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Draft at Brouwer’s, sometime late January ’10. Brownish red pour with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is a little crackery rye and sweet maltiness. Not a lot of yeast character for a Belgian, but it does have a nice rye malt presence on the flavor along with sweet caramel. Finishes fairly bitter with herbal, earthy hops, and is a bit too harsh on the alcohol bite for my tastes. Overall, this is a nice rye beer, but it’s not very Belgian tasting.

daleharshman (883) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Draft at Blind Lady Ale House where it was shown on the board as an "imperial red" which is not a very accurate description. Pours a murky honey-amber-orange with small white head. Mildly hoppy aroma of soap, citrus, and flowers. The flavor has much of the same subdued hop tones along with some light spice. Readily drinkable but I was not particularly impressed.
