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.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a big white head that takes a while to settle and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with green apple and apricot, a bit of brett and some breadiness. Initial taste is some green apple and apricot. A bit of brett presence. Finish is bready and slightly drying. Quite nice. Light bodied. Medium carbonation. Iíd be curious to see how this evolves, but not sure if I have the space.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Beer pours cloudy honey golden color with a massive, retained off white head. Aroma is enjoyable with big brett notes along with lots of earth and bread. Flavor is bitter a just a little sweet. Palate is nicely dry. Really great American belgian style.

Westmeister (2061) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy orange yellow pour with a soapy white head. Aroma of is yeast, Brett, grass, and some citrus. Taste is yeast, Brett, candy sugar, mild funk and citrus. Its a bit tart and sweet. Extremely carbonated and too much Brett for my tastes.

MaBeer1972 (1431) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Came out of the bottle WAY over-carbonated all over the place. Deduct for appearance. Aroma reminds me of sniffing paste in kindergarden. Deduct. Flavor is oddly chemical-like. Flavor of burnt rubber. Over-priced and Very dissapointing.

lamas (1439) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle. A hazy rust pour with a big and fluffy beige head. Sour Brett dominates the aroma and imparts its usual lemony funk. Plenty of juicy oranges, grapefruits, and some caramel in the mix too. Medium to full-bodied and kinda sticky on the way down. Caramel maltiness upfront taste-wise. Lots of yeasty lemony flavors follow. Some juicy pink grapefruits and citrus rinds at the end. Quite tart. A bit of a peppery finish. Very dry. I expected quite a bit more from this one. Things didnít quite work.

mensch (280) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Iíve cellared this bottle for several months; it was much hoppier and less sour when fresh. Gloriously bright copper-yellow. Thick, rocky and lasting white foam. Strong, spritzy lemon-yeasty aroma, still with some grapefruit and floral hop notes. Intense and complex mix of flavors, sour lemon drop candy plays with hop flavors and a lingering sour/dry finish. Freakiní incredible and keeps getting better.

monkeychugg55 (950) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Cloudy copper-orange with a huge, chunky white head. Bit of rubber, citrus, brett, and spice on the nose. Flavor starts out with light caramel and biscuit malt, then becomes bretty with some citrusy hops. Finished dry and refreshing. A lot like Orval, but with fruitier hops and not as perfect. Decent if youíre looking for a reasonably priced Belgian ale with brett.
