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

A hazed amber pour with an off-white head. Very floral hop profile, lots of rye, and toasted bread. A bit of grass, notes of pine, and a lot of yeast. The flavor is very heavy on the toasted notes. Rye, mild sweetness of bread, and floral hops. Lightly grassy, some bitterness on the finish, and overall quite dry.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2013
On tap at Flanny’s in Tempe during the tap takeover. It pours with an opaque copper body that has thin gold edges and supports an off white head. The modest aroma offers up sweet malts, a faint malt roastiness, red apple flavored hard candy and spicy Belgian like yeast. The taste is similar with malt and red apple sweetness rolling into a mix of smooth Belgian yeasty spices and candi sugar. The finish has some light roasted malt notes and earthy tea hops that are somehow getting through the spicy and sweetness and rounding out the experience nicely.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a dark cream colored head. Spice and sweet malt aroma. Spice and sweet malt flavor with big grapefruit. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and earth lingers with spice and yeast.
