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.

maneliquor (3110) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Superb, bright orange pour with a small, firm white head with lovely spider legs all the way down the glass. Nose is pretty much taken over by the brett with heavy tropical fruits. Quite grassy behind it but the brett is very in your face. Very sweet citric fruits and passionfruit followed by the heavy brett focus. Sour with subtle bitterness on the finish. Quite lengthy. Very tasty, the older bottles I have are getting better with bigger emphasis on the brett. Digging it, bit of a bitch to pour though

Beer has some strong carbonation, pours really yeasty, hazy gold with lots of frothy white head. Spicey, sweet belgian yeast aroma. The yeast is belgian through and through, beautifully funky. Grassy, Hay, weird but good flavors. Slight floral hoppy bitterness balanced perfectly with the malts. This stuff is pretty awesome and underrated.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Light hazy gold, huge building white head. Aroma of yeast, lemony citrus, toffee. Taste is well balanced with the Belgian yeast, malt and hops. Juicy sweetness, light tart, medium thin body, medium high carbonation.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2012
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of Brett, fruit, yeast, citrus, a hint of leather, slight lemon, and slight pepper. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, loose, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, slight Brett, barnyard, hops, fruit, pepper, yeast, and spices. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium bitter, lightly sweet, Brett, malt, yeast, spice, pepper finish is lightly dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, medium colored golden orange with a foamy light tan head. Good lace as it settles. Belgian yeast esters dominate the nose, very floral and screams BRETT! Medium mouthfeel. Floral notes up front with a building level of hop bitterness that then takes over. Some soapy like notes as well. Ends with a drawn out mix between hop and lingering florals. Overall, pretty decent for not being something in my favorite style.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a large, lasting head. Nose shows passion fruit and gooseberries. Also very noticeable are funky, horse-blanket notes. A great mix of hops and brett. Very similar flavours with more fruity hops and slightly tart brett notes, creating a very refreshing start. The fruit and acidity quickly fades however, leaving plain cardboard and bready notes. Carbonation is a little full on for my liking.

Anova167 (286) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
This pours with crazy head that turns out pillowy white. Aroma is all horse blanket barnyard with a barely perceptible earthy hop aroma. Perhaps this is an older bottle because the Brett character is heavy. The flavor has some citrus hops flavors underlying the Brett funk. If you don’t like Brett, you would not like this. Luckily, I do so this is an Interesting beer for me.

alexanderj (3317) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle; poured a very orange amber color with a quite large off white head. ARoma of yeast, brett, earth, grass, and must. Flavor wasn’t as pronounced as the aroma, in a good way. Still, I am not really feeling this hybrid style, and haven’t ever loved Brettanomyces all that much. Not my thing.

Brenhophead (558) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours golden with a white head and a yeasty, sweet citrus, funkiness in the aroma. Flavours has that off barnyard funkiness as well as bubblegum? Not really my cup of tea.
