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.

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.

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 (1897) - 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.

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 donít like Brett, you would not like this. Luckily, I do so this is an Interesting beer for me.

alexanderj (3311) - 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 wasnít as pronounced as the aroma, in a good way. Still, I am not really feeling this hybrid style, and havenít ever loved Brettanomyces all that much. Not my thing.

Brenhophead (548) - 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.

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass. Aroma: a funkiness is present. smells sort of like antiseptic or medical cleanser. also some floral hops and hay/grass. unriped fruit, possibly oranges. very strange Appearance: a mountain of head formed that was thick and lingered for so long. like whipped cream on a sundae. slightly hazy and copper colored Taste: medium sweet and light bitter. lightly sour. Palate: medium body, thin texture. average carbonation. slightly metallic aftertaste and light bitter aftertaste. Overall: Was surprised by the crazy amount of head on this one. my second glass I was able to get all of the bottle conditioning yeast into it and it improved the taste. Pretty tasty after getting past the original funkiness present. I dont think i would have liked this if i only had a taster.

Golden with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is spiced apple, slight bretty funk. and mildy spicy hop buzz. Taste is a muted version of the smell, with more brett skunkiness (not a bad thing). Could have used a bit more carbonation, but they may have been leaving room for more from the brett.

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)
