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.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a monster topping. The aroma is brutally wild ... Funky and sickeneningly sweet. Uh oh. Thank goodness that sense of infection doesnít fully carry to the tongue. It still has a Brett-like funk, but it mellows. Gamey. Not my favorite Green Flash. Guess Iím an exception here, but I donít care for the combination here.. (#4517, 3/6/2012)

Got this as an extra from Pat, thanks a lot for this one. Smells awesome. Really citrusy and spicy almost. I get the hops but this smells rather belgian ale-esque. The taste is similar to the nose. A nice funkyness and hop and malt on the taste buds. Fantastic and I want more of this stuff!

Beautiful rusty orange. Fresh nose with a hint of melon. Layered, complex palate going from Brett/yeast to spices finally landing on tart green apple through the finish. Fresh and clean.

On tap in the seen Flash tap room. Dark gold, cinnamon aroma. Sort of a funk to this beer, but a real cinnamon after taste.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Interesting. Nose is citrus hoppy with a subtle horse like aroma. The beer is hazy reddish copper with a pillowy white head. The taste is citrus hop, more of the banyardness, and a little metallic touch. The body is medium with a bitter twang. Good but different.

Iím not a huge Belgium style fan, and I found this to be pretty weak. Lacking on flavor imo

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2012
12oz bottle: Pours a slightly hazy golden brass with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with a lot of barnyard funk and some floral hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with a mild sweetness and grassy and floral hop flavor along with plenty of dry, earthy, and semi-tart brett funkiness toward the finish. True to style and dangerously drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden caramel with a large, chunky white head. Aroma is pine, hops, citrus, a slight bit of sweetness from the malt backbone, and clean, dry brett through the finish. They really hit the balance on the hops and the brett perfectly on the aroma. Taste is slight hop bitterness up front with some pine and perhaps a bit of citrus before giving way to dry brett through the back half and then finishing a slight bit of malt sweetness and some bitterness. The brett suggests toast and a slight herbal character. The taste like the aroma is well-balanced. Mouthfeel is tight and dry. I really like this beer. Excellent.
