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.

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.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky gold with mousse like head. Aroma is floral, farmhouse, earth. Flavor is much the same as well as dry with a very nice floral and light earth hop profile, bret, leather. Mouthfeel is light body with very high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, very tasty brew!

Cloudy orange color. Very big head that can easily jump out of the glass. Aroma can be noticed as soon as you start pouring. Smells of oranges, spiciness, and hops. Lots of carbonation. Taste is similar with corriander and a wild/funk flavor that sets this apart from other belgian pale ales. Some in the 4 pack had alot of funk and one didnít have any. I liked all of them, and highly reccommed trying this one.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Amber, crazy head - be careful! Aroma of citrus hops with only a little Belgian yeast. However, the taste has tons of brett to it along with a good dose of hops bitterness. It has a dry and bitter finish. Probably not much sugar left in this one.

Bottle. A golden color with a white head. A leather aroma with a hop finish. I had I hopes for this beer but it didnít hold up. A dry finish.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber. Little to no head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, candied sugar, lemon zest, herbal, alcohol, must and a weird wet paint smell. First taste is musty, damp, yeasty and a tad fruity. Finishes with a slight hoppiness and a lingering mustiness thatís hard to explain. Mouthfeel is a tad oily but not bad. Not too bad.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Nose is light pine, brett, yeast, and a little candi sugar. Cloudy yellow gold with a big yellow tinged head. Flavor is bitter with light brettiness, and a dose of peppery spiciness.

Bradbalk (9) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2012 does not count
Poured a nice and bright golden orange with a bit of haze, had a big and sticky white head, long lasting with tons of lacing. The smell is Great, very Bretty, a nice big sourdough tartness with a touch of belgiany spice. The flavor is a bit rustic, with a dry light cedary flavor, a mild bit of sour and a decent level of herbal bitterness. Has some light spicy yeast characters with a lemony flavor, and would be great except for a bit of a light coppery tinge sneaking through that is a bit detracting. Has a very light body with a long dry finish. Very Good Bretty Belgian Ale, will be enjoying more of these in the future.

Hazy cloudy gold with one finger of sticky off white head. Nose shows lots of citrus flesh and peppery zesty rind character. Phenolic and yeasty. Lemongrass notes. Dry and citrusy with peppery notes. Almost bretty, some pineapple. Dry and light bodied. Yum.
