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.

Pours an orange copper color with a big fluffy lively head that puffed out of the glass.... Definitely some brettanomyces in there, great barnyard aromas with a underlying sour citrus notes. The flavor explodes just like the aroma with a great rustic backbone rounded out with citrusy hop bitterness and a quality finish.

12oz bottle from Binnyís Arlington Heights. Pours hazy golden orange with lively white head. Aromas of citrus, yeast, brett, grassy hops, toasted grains, and some barnyard. Flavors of grassy hops, lemon, brett, yeast, and some peppery spices. Finishes dry. Really nice.

Has a wildly fragrant aroma that really comes through. Pours golden with a thick head. Taste is mild all around, not being overpowering in any respect.

The word Belgian is misleading here. IPA, or even pale ale would be more appropriate. The malt is there early, followed by an unusual semi-sweet hop flavor bringing up the rear. Reasonable, not complex, a little heavy.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquor - Wakefield, RI. Slightly styrofoamy aroma, with a bit of hop pungency. Spicy and Orval-like. Well carbonated and explosive, as a good Belgian Ale should be. This really reminds me of super-fresh Orval, with more hops. I guess thatís what itís going for. A little less malt complexity. This is nicely drinkable, but thereís not a lot hitting home in the end flavorwise and the palate is really light. Thatís fine, if Iím paying $1.69, but for the $3.39 I had to shell out for 12oz, Iíd like a little more action, please.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma has grass, herbs, barnyard, toasted malts and Brett character with splashes of fruit and yeast. The flavor has more of the barnyard funk, grass, toasted malts with Brett influences. There is a hint of sweet Belgian yeast and sugar working its way in. Interesting and would like to revisit a bottle in a while to see how it changes.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 29, 2012
bottle-Pours darker orange lightly hazy with a fluffy white head that lasted a very long time with sudsy-ness along the sides of the glass. nose is lite spice, barnyard (funk, mold) lite phenols, lite plastic note, and lite straw. flavors exhibit alot of the funk yeast qualities along with toasted malt grains, lite spice, lots of bitter hops (for this style) and lingering funk on the finish. This is alot better than theTreasure Chest beer and one of this breweries best! body is soft, full yet crisp with the perfect amount of carbonation. very well done GF

355ml bottle. Lots of loosely packed foam above a copper orange base. Musky perfume aromas, blooming flowers in the spring garden come to mind. The flavour is a bit perfumery as well but it is not too bad. Sits in the mouth well, has a good strong body and lingers on the palate.
