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.

Skinnyviking (6966) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle. High fluffy white and long lasting head. Hazy orange amber body. Astonishingly sweet fruity green apples aroma. Dry fruity flavor with a peppery note. Low carbonation. Long dry and bitter aftertyaste. Alcohol well hidden.

Beaver (1285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a big rocky off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bready malts with spicy earthy yeasty notes and a touch of brett as it warms.

The flavor is subdued - watery earthy malts and a little fruit with spicy floral hops that linger in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery with lots of sharp carbonation.

Overall, I haven’t really liked the Belgian IPAs, and this is not a great rendition of one (watery, subdued). I didn’t pick up much brett - a little came out as it warmed.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Excellent Orval clone. Intense perfume and orange nose. Balance of sweetness and spice on the palate. Only knocking it down a few points because it’s a clone. But brilliant 6 pack

callmemickey (2689) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Deep copper/amber body, large fluffy off-white head, good sheet-like lacing. Bretty, to say the least. Wet hay, must, light citrus, wheat, and pale malts dominate both the flavor and the nose. Medium bodied, easy to drink with a nice effervescent carbonation. A very interesting beer that does suggest Orval -- although not exactly a clone. Should be interesting to see how this progresses with time in the cellar.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemony, hay, caramel, yeast, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, yeast, spices, caramel, fruits, and hops, leading to a dry yeasty finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours golden with a slight haze and a rich and frothy white head leaving a neat lacework. Heavy Brett aroma, rough and leathery. Medium body, a very dry fruitiness, massive Brett, has a somewhat unfortunate chemical tang - probably from the Brett. Somewhat astringent, again massive leather. Sort of an Orval clone, just far from that beers sophistication. 230512

Tycho52 (65) - California, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Poured from the tap at Pizza Port Solana Beach. Pours to a hazy, orange with a clear white head and great lacing. The aroma is strong on the front end. One smells that delicious Belgian yeastiness and herbs. The taste is a bit sour and coats the sides of the tongue, then yields to a nice malty back end. Very nice brew.
