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.

355ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen

Pours orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of bretta, tart fruits and spices. Taste is slightly fruity with some tart fruits, malts and spices. Finish is slightly sour and bitter. Nice, quite well balanced and tasty.

35,5 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen. No BBE info
Aroma has lots of brettanomyces with earthy notes and hints of sour apples. Flavour has lots of earthy notes with brettanomyces, grassy belgian hops and some sour apples. Foamy palate with somewhat too much CO2. It’s hard to find a beer with more clear bretta‐aromas than this one. Good and refreshing.

Bottle. Dark amber. Good lasting head. Big Brett nose With strong hops underneath and around the edges. Big IPA but even bigger Brett. Very nice. Flavour doesn’t seem to hold strongly in finish and aftertaste. Drops from a 10 up front to a mere 8 at the back. Tastes like 4% rather than 7%

Personally, I don’t care to know how closely this resembles beers made in "historical Belgium", I do think this beer tastes good and I enjoy drinking it. I also never thought I would use the word "horse blanket" in a rating, but I think I actually tasted something similar to what I would imagine a horse blanket tasting like. I liked this beer and would buy it again. In fact, i’m going to have another one right now.

mjg74 (2672) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle from Trader Joe’s.Somewhat sweet and yeast smelling. A decent amount of hops in the nose as well. Dry and somewhat funky. Some dryness to go with an almost vinous quality. Lingering aftertaste. Pretty interesting brew.

JorisPPattyn (8232) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught Dense off-white head over fully hazy yellow to orange beer. Aromatic nose, hoppy and quite a bit of ureum. W_Labs/Wyeast high temperature yeast providing aldehydes, fusels, and probably recommended at boiling temperatures. Another one. Very slick, bit fizzy carbonation. Somebody ought to tell people that the faults some Belgian brewers make, ought not to appear in the brewing books... Oh, and "historical Belgium" isn’t even as old as the USA...

jgb9348 (4979) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Clearish golden coloured body with a light copper glow, a thick, four centimetre tall tan head and zillions of super small bubbles rising from the bottom and sides of the glass. Aroma of deep yeast, candy sugar, wheat, bananas, curacao and a ton of coriander seeds. Medium-bodied; Assertive belgian yeast strain shows well with some dry and herbal hops, a lot of grassy wheat and a very floral and pronounced sweetness with a dry and more dry finish. Aftertaste shows a lot of yeast, coriander seed, light spices and a tad of the sugars. Overall, a nice and dry, almost saisony like flavour with the good pinnings of hops and a barnyardie finish with some good complexity and great well-rounded character. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California on 03-February-2012 for US$2.29 sampled at home in Washington on 07-May-2012.

drjay44 (2859) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, rapidly fading white head, with some lacing over a hazy, dark gold (SRM 6) body....nose is light fruits (pear, apple), light funk...taste is light and dry,with toffee/caramel tones, leading into barnyard, cellar, horse hide, finishing with a lingering pine and grapefruit tinged hop bitterness, ....mouth feel medium, carbonation high. The alcohol level is high for a Belgian Pale Ale. The hops are dominating the malts a bit too much, and I am unsure if Breattanomyces is really used in the classic style. All that said, this is an interesting, moderately complex, easy drinking beer for people into interesting beers. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

ben4321 (4449) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Norm’s, 5/4/12

Aroma: The nose is a nice combination of brett yeast, Belgian yeast, and some lemon/citrus
Appearance: It pours an unclear dark yellow color with a big, fizzy, quick dissipating white head
Flavor: The taste of this one is lightly sweet, yeasty and citrusy, with a medium bretty funkiness
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), with a lively carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid offering. It drinks decently well, it has a good enough look to it, and it has some very nice components to it as well. Very solid stuff here.
