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.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a tall, fluffy off white head. Aroma is sharp bretty funk, wet fallen leaves, barnyard, musty basement, some fruity, spicy ester, citrus and floral hops and cereal grain. Flavor is starts off with a light malt sweetness, then a little graininess and some subtle funk meanders in, floral and spicy hops, stone fruit, wet hay, fallen leaves, light sweet vinous notes, and some light citrus bitterness and lingering funk to the finish. Palate is medium bodied, creamy on entry, has a medium but fairly sharp carbonation and still fairly creamy, but dry finish. Fantastic beer all around, not quite Orval, but not far off.

beerisgoodforu (992) - NÝrresundby, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of citrus, little tropical fruit, white grape, brett funk of barnyard and leather. The flavor follows the aroma with lemon zest, tropical fruit, citrus, vinous white grape notes, brett funk again of leather, barnyard and wet hay. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a really interesting take on Orval, kind of like Mikkeller Itís Alive.

dionysian_son (277) - Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours bronzed hay. Head is bright white with complex nose ripe wiTh bitters, grape, and wheat. Lively on the tongue with tangy apple, rock candy, and zesty citrus. Hops layer in a ephemeral veil adding balance to a well crafted beer.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Big brett in the aroma kinda dominates anything else. Tart, earthy and with a bit of citrus and plastic. The taste is citrus, earthy notes, Brett, stone fruits. Medium bodied. Interesting.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Aroma is yeast, hops and some funk. The flavor is citrus hops, yeast and a lasting bitter finish somewhat similar to Duvel Triple Hop. The hoppiness that lends a bitterness to this helps make this a very good Belgian Ale.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, dark orange, with a 2.5-finger creamy beige head. Aromas of dusty yeast, musty wet hay and dog, and slight pimento. The flavor is dusty and musty yeast, mild funky citrusy hops, and apricot/papaya fruitiness in the finish. Medium carbonation and body, easy-drinking, and really quenching. This was really nice, Iím glad I picked up a bottle. [961]

llcooldave (1076) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Cloudy orange amber in the glass. Fruity floral malt aroma mixed in with some yeasty notes. Dry citrus and a slight tang. Overall I was really surprised by this brew. Very tasty and drinkable. Iím purchasing more. Thanks BarZigKin for sharing.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazed deep golden amber with huge foamy white head. Aroma is Brett brux, horsey with earthy cherry pits, too bad thereís a little anti-septic undertone in here. Perhaps at different stages the Brett comes off smelling a little better. Flavors have a nice soft horsey barnyard character, cherry pits and vanilla come in there too along with a grassy and peppercorn bitterness. Firm mouth feel. Probably the closest thing to orval Iíve had and shockingly it came from green flash. Iím gonna sit my other two bottles and see if the Brett can clean this up and dry it out a bit more. Iím surprised this was released so bretty. I could see this getting better in 6 months.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12 oz. bottle at Lunar Brewing Co., poured to a snifter with fair clarity at first, then a subsequent pour revealed more of a hazed, golden color, lasting, billowy, white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was fruit & citrus, funky, grandmaís attic yeast scent, light candi sweetness, and pomanderish floral hints as gardenia. The same notes were evident in the flavor, especially the brett. Lingering, earthy hop bitterness was also present, as was lively carbonation, a medium body, and a pleasant, finishing dryness to go along with the bitterness. A unique and interesting brew, appreciated the suggestion, but only a moderate fan who will probably try again to witness the evolution process.
