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

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.

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.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Draft at GF 7th anny festival. Dark orange to amber hue with mostly dissipating head. Nose is complex; Belgian yeast and Candi with rye bread, caramel, and light fruits. Flavor is fruity syrup and Belgian yeast up front, transitions to rye bread and bitter grassy and citrus hop flavors, caramel malt backbone, finishes on the dry and bitter side. Medium body, high and biting carbonation, smooth texture. Complex, flavorful, and easy drinking Belgian hybrid, plenty of depth without being overwhelming, great anniversary ale!

On draft at the brewery. amber color with a thin off white head. Citrus, belgian yeast on the nose. Medium bodied. Solid hoppy bitter backbone with some flavor of sweet malt, rye, caramel. Fairly dry on the finish. Good beer.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Aromas of citrus fruit, floral fragrance, peach, fruity esters, cherries, and light caramel. Clear ruby, off-white head, light retention. Fruity, bitter, and peppery. Full bodied, with moderate carbonation, and a long spicy and bitter finish.

skmikeg (739) - Poway, California, USA - FEB 15, 2013
pours a reddish amber with a one finger off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of fruity Belgian yeast, citrus, rye malts, and some caramel. Taste is similar but also has some mild funk and more rye notes then the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a super creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. overall, a tasty and interesting take on a Belgian Ale.

On tap at Brouwer’s. Pours orange-red with a foamy beige head that leaves plenty of lace. Aromas of vinegar, candy sugar and apple. Taste is both bitter and bubble gum along with grassy hop. Interesting.

I had this on tap at Flying Saucer with several samples. I drank this one towards the end after some IPAs so take that into consideration. Poured a golden color with a sweet aroma: floral, citrus, fruitiness. Certainly a fruity taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
On tap at Malt and Vine. Red-brown with lacy off-white head. Smells fruity and bitter with floral undertones. Tastes of bitter rye bread, grapefruit, red fruits and light malt with a little yeast and spice in the finish. Body is mildly viscous and bitter. This was tasty but not amazing.
