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.

Botella. Color daurat amb escuma blanquinosa excessiva. Aroma de pell de taronja, terra. El gust és lleugerament picant i àcid. Cos mitjà, carbonatació animada i escumosa sensació a la boca. Massa carbonatació. No obstant això, es saborosa i ben equilibrada.

(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a lot of white head. Sweet yeast and spices in the aroma. Mild hop bitterness. Flavor has that same spicy Belgian yeast at the start with a dry hop bite coming up at the end. Way too carbonated, but pretty good.

Wonderful aroma and flavor. Floral, almost a lavender taste. Very strong on the pallate. Wonderfull beer but could be overwhelming if I had a lot more of them.

A few yrs old. Very carbonated bottle. Could not pour the entire beer in the glass at once. Several finger head. High energy bubbles. Nice lacing. Lots of Brett on the nose. Taste is dry. The beer showing signs of oxidation. A little sweetness too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a bretty beast... Pours a murky orange with a huge bubbly head. Brett barnyard funk dominates the nose, with some spice and a hint of fruit. Those same things are fully present in the taste, along with coriander and even a bit of a cardamom. A bit astringent. Crisp medium mouth without a lot of carbonation. It’s not as refined and balanced as Orval, but nonetheless good if you’re a brett head.

pintbypint (2541) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
12oz brown bottle. Foam creeping up the neck on uncapping... a good sign? Rich golden colour, huge column of white foam, dense, thick. Huge bands of lacing in the glass. Nose has leathery bretty funk, lemony sharpness as well. Flavours of brett/funk/yeast, leathery. Mild hoppy finish, dry and crisp. Medium body with persistent carbonation. Excellent bretted pale ale, as an Orval fan this hits the mark and then some.

UXO (113) - CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a huge frothy three finger white head diminishing gradually to a lumpy marshmallow-like cap and heavy lacing. Nose is strongly dominated by brett funk, with a little fruit and sweet malt in the background. Taste follows suit, but with more malt presence, as well as a little umami. Mouth feel is medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a gentle alcohol warming. I see this compared to Orval, but I don’t think I agree - the brett is much more pronounced than Orval, and the fruit less so. This is more like Gato Negro, with its heavy-handed brett funk, albeit with a little more West Coast character. The brett settles down somewhat as the glass progresses and the beer warms.

legion242 (2143) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Poured a hazy golden colour with a head that just would not stop. Nose was musty and inviting. As close to an Orval that I’ve river had. This will become a staple in my house!

angel77 (772) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo, en el momento en 17-05-2014. Color ámbar con espuma beige poco persistente. Aromas y sabores ligeros, ácidos, con pequeños toques de maderas y ligeramente afrutados que se acentúan según coge temperatura. Presencia de carbónico, recuerdos a las lambic belgas con algo mas de maltas y un ligero toque amargo final bastante suave. Bastante fácil de beber. Interesante.

bartlebier (1481) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2014
12oz bottle courtesy of embrouille, danke vielmals! A whole lot about this beer is a perfectly potable parody of a nouvelle vague Belgian saison: huge seafoam head, huge white pepper and pollen and springtime peach blossom nose, flowery and dry to the extreme. Orval comes to the p distracted palate’s mind, before it thinks better of the analogy, leaving emulation to its own devices. Taste is marked by dryness, concentrated daffodils, green apple peel and old dried citrus rind. Quite a lot to take in, almost a horror vacui of New world saison, bordering on perfume - a true West Cost feat, nevertheless.
