Bottle 355ml. Thx Tom10101
Pours clear golden with huge creamy/fluffy light-beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of bretts, tropical fruits, citrus, slight soap, some leather.. Taste is of bretts, yeast, fruits, slight bitterness, citrus, slight nuts aftertaste, hints of alcohol. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Awesome brett action. I was not aware there were some in this beer, and got thrown down my chair. An outstanding brew. Wish I had regular acces to this.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very foamy head with strong aromas of Brett. That wild, barnyard Brett follows into the taste, but not nearly as strongly as I would have thought (which is a good thing). Body is soft and wheaty with a dry hay component. Lemon and lime citrus tastes along with an earthy, almost mushroomy flavor. Very tasty, refreshing and interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber body, nonexistent white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma with mandarin, a nice subtle sourness. Medium body with nonexistent carbonation. Nice, fruity and yeasty flavour with a decent bitterness and a dry finish.

Bottle. A decent beer, faithful take on the Belgian pale ale style. Light sour notes, underlying hop adds a nice twist.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
January 18th, 2012 - Rayon Vert is Green Flash’s alternate reality beer, developed in a world where Green Flash began in Belgium, not San Diego. This alternate history opens up Green Flash’s brewing to the great outdoors and invites in Brettanomyces - a flavor Americans, I think, I still getting accustomed too. Fortunately for Brett amateurs, the barnyard funk only appears in the taste. Funky freshness and cobwebs lurk in the depths of the flavor, though brightened by the elegant taste of rosewater and a heavy hit of perfume. The nose doesn’t carry any of the brett, but instead pushes smells of iris, lily, and the relaxing air of the botanical gardens. Be prepared to get more than a few sips of waxy flower petals on the tongue, but it’s a worthwhile experience.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Pours bright orange with a huge rocky head. Aroma of Brett yeast. The initial drink is tart with some malt sweetness. Good amount of hop bitterness to balance out the malt. Finishes Dry. Just too difficult to work with. I prefer to drink my beer with with a reasonable time after pouring. This beer takes 30 minutes before its ready to drink.

35.5cl bottle, served in Tulip. Pours intense orange (flame colour) with big white frothy crown, looks so good. The aroma is lemon along with toasty caramel notes. The flavour is quite acid as expected. The yeast character makes this brew really unique, not to mention the hops. Sweet malty touch on the palate, hints of fruits. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Pleasant WOW!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a big, fine white head that lingers and laces. Aromas of citrus and herbal hops, with a minty and slightly medicinal twinge. Earthy yeast with some clove spice. Flavors are layered on the palate, with lemon sweetness and drying funk leading the way. Yeast has a surprising, almost puckering, drying effect. Earthy grassy flavors blend with toffee-tinged malts. Notes of white pepper close a long, dry finish. Medium-full body with a creamy amount of carbonation.
