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.

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!

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.

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.

xmrcifuplzx (7) - Janesville, Wi, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2014 does not count
Pours seventy five percent head twenty five percent beer. Has a urine like aroma with a flavor not far from the smell. After letting the head settle a bit this beer separates very oddly. Amber clear on bottom very foggy on top. Very upsetting overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. golden pour, loads and loads of white frothy head, that gifts lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma, wow, lots of funkiness and thats saying something giving the fact I am at the tail end of a cold that hasn’t allowed me to smell anything but mouldy ketchup for the last week. Continuing with the aroma, lemon zest, yeast, grass, very nice. Taste, nice, my first beer all week and she’s a beauty, crisp dryness up front, soft mouthfeel, followed by some mild brett funk, subtle hops but very minimal, nice dry finish. Really schweet brew.

Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Pours dusty orange with a huge foaming white head. Big yeasty apple aroma, zesty lively palate, with a sharp finish, lingering and with sour notes.

ARH (777) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into an english pint glass. A cheese like funk is noticeable right from the get-go with more subtle notes of stone fruit, resin, and earth. As the beer settles down, although the cheese is still present, a floral and citrus note make themselves apparent. The beer is a cloudy orange-gold (murky by the end of the bottle thanks to conditioning) with a light, pillowy head. The lace is runny, and doesn’t stick. By the finish, the head is a dishwater film atop the beer. The tongue is hit by a medium / medium-high bitterness with a light sweetness to support it. There’s also a hint of cheesy umami in there too. Lots of light, fizzy carbonation help the medium-full bodied beer to maintain an oily texture. The finish is a dry pine, pepper, and citrus peel. The citrus peel becomes more grapefruit-like in the aftertaste, and is accompanied by a chalky quality. Some cheese flavors seem to sneak into the aftertaste as well, which is brief.

Strange brew. I get the the Belgian yeast and floral notes, but the funkiness from the Brett takes over. Very thin mouth feel. Astringent/oily. Just okay.

Bottle 660ml @Beer Hunters. Clear copper/amber color, big cloudy white head. Aroma is funky, some fruityness. Medium-bodied, very active carbonation. Flavor is also somewhat funky, citrus. "American-Belgian" yeast. Nice Orval clone.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Apparently this beer is being put into retirement by GF, so I wanted to get in a bottle and rating for posterity. One of the most interesting beers they’ve ever done, and in fact a fascinating beer in the entirety of American brewing. It’s not Orval, but it’s a very interesting WC take on Orval, with a nose that is bretty as hell while conveying a lot of herbacious hop character. The flavors are delightfully spicy brett/herb union with a lasting bitterness in the finish. There’s maybe a slight hint of sweet orange peel. Bone dry. Far from my favorite beer, but there are few as distinctive as this one. Every time I try this beer again, it grows in my estimation. Drinking my last bottle (currently, I plan on buying all that sits around Gainesville) and it’s about 2 years of age. Nose bustles with hints of lemon and mint and evergreen. Insane carbonation and a pretty strong bitterness define the palate/taste. Excellent summer drinker.
