Like Orval? Say hello to its little friend. Just don’t use a tulip, the head is a little out of control and just rockets out of the glass.

12 oz bottle. Purchased from 16th Ave. Pours a hazy orange amber with a light head. Hops and citrus to the nose with maybe a bit of toffee. Nice light malt with oranges and lemons to taste. Fruity. Nice overall balance though leaning towards the hops. A good beer.

The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a ton of brett, as well as some nice leather notes. Hidden in the background are some spice and orange citrus notes.
The flavor is more of the same. What stands out the most is the brett and orange notes, but there is also quite a bit of leather and white pepper mixed in. The beer is very dry.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very nice.

Well, I love Green Flash brews, maybe this was just a poor evaluation after the Hess IPA, but to me Rayon Vert translated into green plastic and I could not shake that association. I am thinking this is more likely a classic Belgian pale with a little overexuberance on the hops rather than the more trendy IPA with a Belgian yeast and so may rating may reflect different expectations.

12oz into sniffer... ridiculous head. seriously 3-4 fingers. Smell is hard to place. I think I’m getting banana and maybe some melon or something like that. Very light and sweet smelling. Tastes sweet and funky, no bitterness that I can detect. I think it’s delicious.

Pours a cloudy gold with a huge head. Slight banana aroma, and sour flavor. Maybe I should wait until the head is gone tomorrow.
