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. Appearance: very clear golden orange color, white head dissipating quickly. Aroma: first pour whiff almost skunky to me, but I think thatís the new style for me that I just donít know (think itís a kind of barnyard Brett smell); very earthy almost dirt yeast presence that works well with very sweet honeysuckle and orange and tart lemon citrus scent. Taste: strong meyer lemon citrus up front, some caramel malt coming through in the middle, finishing with a kind of lemony tartness and dried leaves taste that lingers a bit; very interesting/different yet delicious. Mouthfeel: relatively thin, medium "scrubbing" carbonation, very dry finish. Overall: this is my first Brett beer and Iím pleasantly surprised. Didnít know what was going on at first whiff so I looked it up and it made sense. Donít really love that aroma, but I really like the complexity of taste.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper big off-white head. Interesting aroma of citrus and spice and earthy yeast. Taste is not overly sweet or bitter. Good amount of malt, medium body, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish with spice. Overall this was unique and pretty good for a style thatís not my favorite.

nimbleprop (5210) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2012
I donít know, I guess itís a 12oz bottle, but it could also be 33cl. Pours a mostly clear, bright gold with a frothy, clumpy white head. Nose is a really nice mix of Belgian yeasty esters and nice lemony hops, earthy, cloves, leafy veg, candy sugar, a little bit of birch. Flavor is sweet, spicy, candy sugar, lemons, oranges, mint, birch, earthy, grass, hay. Medium bodied finish. I know this is a take on Orval, but it needed a touch more Brett to be in the same league. As is though, itís very nice. Complex but drinkable. Could be sessionable if it wasnít 7% abv.

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
pours a cloudy pale gold, big pillowy head. very funky in flavor and aroma, very dry and fruity, moderately bitter, very dry finish, very satisfying. this is the real deal, definitely not a half-assed belgian attempt., and something about it comes together in a way that makes me wanna get this stuff all the time.
