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

"The Belgian yeast kinda overrides the rye here, which is why I chose belgian ale and not rye beer. Either way...a little confused, with muddled aroma and flavors. They were nice, just unfocused to the point where it was hard to say what you were drinking. I wonder if this was fresh..."

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Nose of floral earthy hops, spicy rye notes, pepper, and some bubble gum. Reddish amber pour, frothy foamy head, sticky lace. A nice looking beer. Spicy rye, bittering hops, floral and light citrus notes. A hint dusty. Nice rye malt usage. Not overly belgian, just with a hint of sweetness from the yeast. Nice dry hoppy notes.
