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.

I try to get into Belgian IPAs but I’m still struggling. Massive head. Huge bitterness and sweet, dry feel - like honey wine. Big taste with peat in there too. But I miss the citrus, fruit and pine notes of American IPAs. Love the West Coast IPA from these guys. I’ll keep trying.

Maybe one of the last 4-packs out there. Have been a long-time fan but have not reviewed. This one gushed on me. Poured quickly into Oxbow tulip. Enormous frothy head. Long-lasting. Took three pours to empty the bottle. Bit of lacing. Pours a slightly hazy bronze straw color. Excellent Brett aroma. Easiest to find beer with that distinct Brett. There's some floral and fruity ester notes as well. A bit of sour cherry. Taste is prominent Brett. Probably the oldest RV I've had based upon that. Less fruit and sweetness on tongue than nose. Some subtle hops more present than usual. Maybe a bit of oak and sour fruit. Nice mouthfeel. Light medium with great carbonation, just shy of prickly. Very dry, as usual. One of the best readily available Brett beers. Hopefully the shift from 12 oz to bomber won't change that. At this level of age this is closer to a heavily bretted saison than a BPA but still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not quite an Orval clone. For one thing you can pour an Orval without it practically spraying foam out of the top of your pint glass. This is the first pour I’ve had in which a completely homogeneous head (not even a mm of liquid at the bottom) fills a pint glass after about the first ounce of beer. Mondo carbonation, which while it may not be a negative for some, but detracts from my rating a bit. Dry, sour, citrus sweet with excellent balance. Lingering peat and fruit. Love this beer.

Look: A lot of carbonation, too much - tends to happen with brett, Huge, rocky, white head with big bubbles at start. There was so much foam that I couldn’t pour the whole bottle at once. And on the second pour the head got even more ridiculously. The head has a very slow retention, mostly stays (thick layer) - well a fucking mountain with a big valley stayed. Had to wait for a while to even start to drink. Leaves behind good amount of random lacing. Color is golden amber with some haze. Looks light, fizzy and quite alive.

Smell: Berry, cherry, forest fruits acidity. Musty, funk. A relatively strong medicinal note with some pine, floral and herbal notes to follow. Light caramel sweetness. Everything makes a sharp, fresh, complex and interesting combo.

Taste: Funk (mostly leathery) steps up a notch and acidity tuned a bit down. Nice light caramel backbone followed with medium pine, grapefruit bitterness which stays for a while. Still some medicinal notes and some metallic ones come with a few sips. Light herbal, floral notes hidden beneath.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, feels less because of relatively high carbonation. Dry.

Overall: Well, yes, it’s a Belgian ale. Some mix of bitter, light sour and gueuze. Carbonation flew too high on this one, the funk is fun and dynamic, medicinal part kinda off but overall complex and interesting one.

12 ounce to CBS glass. Amazing golden color with an almost neon glow. Opacity plus! Huge brett head even when poured slowly. There is no possible way to pour a whole bottle in a glass! Fruity aroma that wreaks of brett! Buttery, almost oily, mouth with a taste that is strong with fruit ester and yeast roll!

Grzesiek79 (3303) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bardzo dobre, piana oszaamiajaca az sama wychodzi w slimakowym tempie i wciaz rosnie, Metne i cytrusowy aromat, jakby sfermentowany grejfrut, wyglad jasne ale po chwili w miare wlewania ogniscie pomaranczowe sie robi, sporo metnosci osadu, choc na dnie nie byl przyczepiony wiec nie trzebabylo beltac ta mala zgrabna i fajniutka buteleczka. Troche moze zbyt chmielne APA nieco przypominalo, ale takze zblizone mimo to dobrze do belgijskiego gatunku. Piwo Super pijalne.

Because I don’t like this does;t make this a bad beer, I thought this was too sour, dry and musty for me, also it was wildly over excitable in the glass with more head than beer. I get what this is about and why a lot of people like it, it really isn’t for me this time around .

12oz bottle served in a St. Bernardus chalice Bottle on 7/4/2012 A - Burnt orange color with a massive 3 fingers of off-white head. This terminator head takes for ever to sink but gives you ample time to smell the awesome aroma. S - Spicy yeast, full on brett, big aroma of musty tropical fruit, sweettart candy, bubblegum, bright funkiness, orange sherbert, lemons, old church basement, grassy hops. T - Follows the nose with lots of spice upfront, lemons, orange, pineapple, mango skin, dried papaya, white grapes, pears, hints of banana. Pale malts in the background with plenty of grassy hops. Finishes with a spicy and dry bitterness. M - Aggressive carbonation adds a prickly bite and lightens up the body quite a bit. Creamy, dry feel. Sublime aroma on this beer. It’s like funky Belgian tropical nirvana. Hoppier than i thought it would be. The flavors seem to effortlessly marry together. This is my kind of beer. Serving type: bottle 06-11-2013
