COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If Green Flash were founded in historical Belgium, Rayon Vert would have been our flagship brew. A bold layering of hops finds balance from traditional malts. Bottle conditioning with fresh ale yeast and Brettanomyces finishes the beer, adding a delightful effervescence, dryness and continuously evolving character. Rayon Vert is Green Flash.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks glass. Orange and cloudy with a big, lasting white head. Aroma is tart, funky, fruity, bretty and lightly sour, quite enticing. Similar flavor with an earthy bitterness and a dry feel. Refreshing and tasty as fuck.

Sweet lemon aroma, huge bone white foam at first pour this beer has the Belgian yeast, malty body and green hop aftertaste. Easier drinker, lighter than expected.

12 oz bottle poured into a trappist glass. Huge head formed from massive carbonation, took 4 pours to get it all out of the bottle. Decent aroma, nothing too funky going on here. Taste is crisp and thin. Good beer, will enjoy again.

Green flash pale ales have this really recognizable house aroma. I like this more than their friendship brew. It has a Belgian flavor but not as easily found as I am used to. Pretty resiny and dank hops. There was a relentless cloud of head when I poured. Ok combination of the green flash taste with Belgian style. Not fantastic

Not my favorite style, but decided to give a single a try from Archer Liquors in Chicago. Massive head is probably an understatement. Taste is pretty weird to me, hops, orange peel and a medicinal / sour taste. Hey, I can say I tried it.

Supposedly an Orval clone, but I find the aftertaste more appealing than that of Orval. Pours with tremendous head settling into a nice copper color. The aroma and taste are quite similar to a great Brittany brut cider.

A hazed golden amber ale with a thick frothy and lacing light mocha head. In aroma, loads if Brett yeast over biscuit malt, green grass, orange pulp, and floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a beautiful example of the genre with lightly sweet Belgian malt with good Brett presence, soil, floral hops, very smooth yet complex. Well done!

Amber pour w/ a huge foamy head. Aroma is bready & a little funky. Taste is highly carbonated which takes away from some of the nice underlying Belgian notes. Not sure if I got a bad bottle?

Bottled 03JUL12 So, I knew this would be overcarbed, but this was stupid. It took a pitcher to pour this 12oz bottle. Nice clear golden underneath. Retained none of the foam once it died down. Smells nice with raisin, pale belgian yeast character, some hints of grain and metal and a bit of bitterness; some green apple skins and meat come through as it warms. Flavor is fruity, apple, lemon, honeydew and grain, some clay and a touch of strep mutans (maybe that’s my mouth though). Medium bodied with now minimal carb and an off dry finish. Meh, would like to try fresh because this didn’t do well with the age IMO.
