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.

11.2oz bottle - pours hazy orange with volcanic white head. Nose is yeast and orange! Flavor adds pine, citrus and spices (black pepper?). Hoppy and yeasty. Reminds me of Le Merle. dry finish and burpy. The Unibroue of West!

sunevdj (3271) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber with a big off-white head and substantial lacings. Smells of lemon peal and brett. Very dry with an underlying sweetness. Lots of brettanomyces aromas with citric notes and hints of caramel towards the end. Medium to full bodied. High carbonation. Very dry finish.

Bready, hoppy aroma. Light amber color. Bright taste, bordering on lemony, finishing in slightly funky Belgian yeast. Kind of refreshing. Not my favorite but interesting.

RoyalFlushing (324) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle to tulip glass poured a dark apricot with a magnificent fluffy white head and impessive lacing. Aroma is primarily brett, but hints of citrus and grass develop. First sip introduces floral notes, slight guava flavor, leading to some bitter hops and ending with palatable sourness. Carbonation and sour linger in the mouth. Truly enjoyable brett/floral ale.

Amber. White-head. Ample lacing. Brett aroma, smells like I might have poured Orval by mistake. Dry malty flavor with a nice brett. presence. Dry malty aftertaste. Slightly sour, but not overly so. Pretty good Orval clone.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAY 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #260. Golden in color with a very faint haze and a big white head with an above average spotty lacing. A nice amount of funk and lots of lemon and citrus. Mild bitterness, decent hop bite with some more funk and lemon. Nice. (2365)

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a massive white head, which lasts well and leaves some lace. The brettanomyces is certainly present in the aroma: it smells quite sour and slightly off. There are some grapefruit and lemon hops up front, which segue into more sourness. There are some weak grainy malt notes, and an unusual faint sweetness towards the finish. This really isn’t a great beer. It is not pleasantly sour in the manner of a wild ale, it justs tastes and smells off. Judging by this sourness and the vigour with which the head forms, it seems to me that they may have just gone a bit overboard with the brettanomyces. Whatever the cause, this is not a beer I enjoyed.
