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: The aroma consists of citrus, Belgian yeast, light bubblegum, and a hint of bandaid. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a large white head that has very good retention and leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with citrus and Belgian yeast notes. The finish light grapefruit, lemon/lemon peel, and floral notes. Itís light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthful.

12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a big white head. Aroma of considerable hop bite, Belgian spices and cracker malt. Flavour of the same, with a beautiful spicy hop punch, horse blanket and some spicy bread. Great punch with a good astringency. Delicious.

12 oz bottle via 4pack from Spirits Point. Poured a good looking clear deep orange/amber body under a HUGE frothy super light tan head. Aroma is Funk-E, initial aroma is like a blast of used band-aids croseed with a pile of old lemons and a hint of cherry juice, this mellows to pure yeast and funkiness the way a wedge of old bleu cheese mellows in the summer sun. Full bodied with a chunky mouthfeel and obvious carbonation with a bitter dry finish. The flavor is nice but the funk level is definitely taken down a few notches. Notes of band aid, yeast, funk, cherry skins, lemons and medicine. Good stuff overall.

CapFlu (4358) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2012
(12oz bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor Store for $14/4-pack. Pours a creamy white head atop of a cloudy orange body. I donít usually conduct an audible review but the carbonation is causing a clicking? Bizarre. Nose is highly fruity and citrus. Amazing Flavour - strong Belgian yeast base, Seville orange marmalade and lemon. Wow, this reminds of another amazing Belgian pale ale - Lighthouse Deckhand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPod; and powered by RateBeer.com, the worldís largest and most accurate beer database.

Chloraseptic, pear, apricot, and grapefruit nose. Strongly phenolic. Clear amber, thick yellow sticky head. Flavor is still very much like chloraseptic and grapefruit peel. Hoppy as I expect from Green Flash. The Brett is out of control in this one. I think the funk crosses that line to becoming too medicinal and chlorophenolic.Still strangely enjoyable as the quality of the phenols are only marginally tainted.

BelgianBeerGal (3014) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Central Market bottle. Nice golden-orange color with a foamy, off-white head. Thick lacing. Cool aroma of a westcoast IPA with just a hint of Belgian yeast. Wow, bold flavor that really reminded me of a DIPA. Really good but maybe missing some "Belgianesque" influence in the taste.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle from Samís Quik Shop in Durham. Pours bright hazy gold with an amber tint. Big foamy white head. Nose shows brett, mild leather, yeast, peaches, hay, and dirt. A bit metallic. Similar taste; some added lemon notes, but subtle. A bit boozy. This beer is so close to being amazing, but itís a bit sweet and alcoholic, and the dirt/metallic notes slightly eclipse the brett brightness. Bring me an Orval.

Bottle. Gold bodied with a tall, foamy blond head. Strong yeast notes, peach, citrus, floral hops and spice. Taste is big fruit notes, citrus oils, dusty yeasty, floral notes, soft spice and light woody notes. Body is medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Slight chalky in spots. Finishes with more citrus, peach, dusty yeast, floral notes, spice, grains and light woody notes.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle from Central Market. Orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, a nice yeast twang, and some bubblegum. Taste is weird, bitter, really dry, and strange fruit. Dry finish.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Poured into a Duvel tulip from a fresh 12 ounce bottle.

A: Hazy amber brown body with a thick and dense white head that sticks around for a while.

S: Very strong bright aroma, hints of leather and lemon with an herbal funk. It kind of reminds me of drinking lemonade next to a garden in the spring. Itís hard to describe, thereís a lot going on here.

T: Upfront Iím getting a sweetness of oranges and a hint of honey with an underlying brett funk and a slight lemon bitterness. The beer finishes with a slight grapefruit bitterness, but itís hard to pin down. This is a very complex beer.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

O: Iím taking my time with this since Iím new to Brett beers but this may be my favorite. Itís very complex with fruity, floral, and earthy notes ranging from bitter to sweet. This is a fun beer to drink.
