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.

The aroma is quite funky with the typical urinal cake and barnyard qualities that Bret brings. There is also a definite floral note as well a herbal quality. The appearnace is golden with a nice foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and better than most of this type. The palate is thin. Overall a really strange beer but I like it.

mansquito (3576) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($12): Pours a light copper colour with a prodigious white head. Aroma is hell of powerful. It hits you like a bouquet of flowers, even with a stuffy nose. Some light fruitiness in there too along with le funk. Taste is quite hoppy at the front. Got some funk and earthiness in there. The Brett is certainly present in good form. Taste is weird and funked out. Aftertaste is much the same. Fortunately, I like beer like this.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is very nicely herbal, a light funk, fruity and hoppy, all kinds of goodness going on. Nice tropical character along with the belgian yeast giving the spicy funk. Flavor really brings out the sweet tropical fruits more, still a bit of funk, the brett really hitting heavy towards the finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Excellent beer

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
355ml bottle. It pours a murky amber, huge white head that leaves soapy lacing. The smell is dominated by brett. Smells like an Orval but less complex with a bigger medicine scent. The taste is mostly brett too, a subtle bit of hops rounds it out. If you like brett give it a try.

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy reddish orange with very nice lacing white head, excellent looking. Aroma has notes of biscuity cracker, nice lemon, pineapple, tropical fruit with some passionfruit and mango, touch of spice and earth notes, hints of funk in there as well. Taste is a nice mix of biscuity cracker with sweet pineapple, mango notes, hints of lemon and funk notes but very balanced and slight at this point, touch of drying earth goes quickly into a very drying finish. This is excellent, refreshing, tasty with a nice depth of flavor as well. Will look forward to how this evolves.

BVery (6980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange-yellow pour with a monster pillowy white head. Awesome nose of yeast, citrus, and Brett. Moderate palate. Taste is the same elements as the aroma, but not quite as striking. Very nice brew.

pineypower (2549) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a slightly cloudy golden color with a pillowy off white head. Aroma is of nice fruity yeast, light hops, and a nice tart/funky/light plasticky brett note. Taste is complex, nice clean fruity notes start off with a good dose of some bitterness and then the brett creeps in there with plastic-band-aid-funk notes in there with light tartness. Completely refreshing and a really nice beer. Glad I grabbed a 4-pack.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, amber color with a fluffy off white head. Really a nice looking beer. Aroma has notes of tropical fruit, piney hoods, barnyard, straw, and spice. Taste is hops, spices, rye, and a nice balance of malt. Nice dry finish. Overall good beer.

Purchased at Andersonville Wine & Spirits in Chicago, IL; enjoyed during a going away party for a friend who’se moving to Sweden in the coming weeks. Appearance a rich amber/gold with a thin white head. Aroma of strong clove, a bit of bitterness from hops and spice, smells unique. Taste equal parts spice and bitter, tasted really good. There was a rich complexity to it, really balanced well with other beers that were served at the party. Would happily try again.
