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.

hawthorne00 (2474) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2012
Bottle, 12C. Cloudy amber with a towering white head. Aroma of lemon, brett, white pepper, peaches. Some fruit, spicy tartness and a very dry and quite bitter finish. Thinnish with not a lot of depth to the fruit before the bretty dry finish kicks in. A bit of a medicinal note. Not quite Orval (and _more_ expensive than it here), but you think of it immediately even if the balance is a bit more towards the hops.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2012
At just on cool, a small bottle - don’t want to over commit. With only half in the chalice it raised an enviable white clowd of foam that adheres like glue to the walls of the glass. Sits, just shy of bright and dazzling in the lights; a deep, orange amber with very sparse and very fine carbonation. A top up with the rest of the beer it disperses a fine haze of yeast that turns it pastel in tone. Got a nice tweak of the funked-up, hessian-sack, Brett notes coming through on the nose. A good whiff of salted white cheese, drift-wood, mouse hair, white bread dough too with inklings of ripe, soft, tropical fruits to round it off nicely; very pleasing and subtle. Dry, tart, woody and all consumed Brettanomyces charged palate. Hops in equal synch. I half expected it to be rife with resinous US hops but this is so pleasingly balanced. Body is firm, not light, not heavy, with the carbonation offering to elevate it well and pierce every seem, every nook, every cranny of the mouth. Flavour reminiscent of hessian-sack, driftwood and vine-clippings, tart strawberries and peachy fruit esters, vanilla and musk candy in late. Puckering, hairy, undeniably dry swallow sees it tail off quickly with only a little yeasty funk to reminisce on. A pleasant surprise for me. An original ale, well made, beautifully crafted. Lovely!

JoeyBeerBelly (34) - New York, USA - APR 16, 2012
Slightly hazed copper color with a fluffy white head that had plenty of staying power and left trails of lacing. Aroma is crisp spices and some yeast. Spiced yeast and bitterness are good together and make you want another sip. Medium bodied with a crisp bite. A very enjoyable beer to begin or end an evening.

Bottle split with Andrew, Dallas and Maggi; courtesy of Andrew. Pours a hazed orange amber body with white creamy lacing. Aroma is funky brett, belgian spice, and light hop. Mouthfeel is nice, medium, with notes of funky brett, lemon, fresh hop, and a light belgian spice.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - APR 15, 2012
Poured a darker orange with a big white lasting head. Peppery aroma with brett and a bit of citrus. Mild sweetness up front but finishes dry. Brett, bitter hops and a tad bit of citrus in the flavor. Bitter finish. Yum.

RedSox2004 (1294) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Clear golden orange with a beautiful thick frothy head that dissipated to a nice solid film and left exqusite lace. Aromas of Belgian yeast, citrus - pineapple mostly - clove, and black pepper. Sharp citrus tartness, almost sour, with rich bread and cereal malt to give this a very nice balance. Light body, huge effervescence, soft on the palate, and a crisp clean tart finish.

Bottle with Dallas, Maggi, and James. leathery, wax, and smoke smoke atop a wild and bretty ale. Finishes quick, some tanginess in finish.

DeliriumT (361) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2012
Smells subtly of Belgian yeast with aromas of grass and spice. Like other green flash Belgian inspired beers, this is hoppier than a regular Belgian, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but in this case I think this beer is a little too Americanized to be called "Belgian style". Still quite enjoyable

fiercepanda (587) - Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2012
A hazy dark yellow beer with a large frothy head. The aroma is yeast, a nice fruitiness and bubble gum with some piney hops. The flavor is mildly bitter with nice yeast character and fruitiness. Pretty delicious.
