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. This poured a hazy golden and had a decent head. The nose was yeast and complex hops. I taste citrus, grass, barnyard, and some yeast. This is a nice take on the Belgian IPA style.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Breakfast beer! Pours hazy copper with a moderate, creamy head. Aroma is loaded with grass, dandelion, manure, salty dog, horse blanket - things of that ilk. Flavor is acutely spicy with some nice grassy, piney bitterness, medium sweetness, some fine sugars, light caramel and toast. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Great balance to finish, dry, with spicy hops, grass, pine, lemon rind, mild yeast, brett, light toast and sugar. This is a pretty sublime beer. The dry, bretty character with the ample hops and balancing malty sweetness. Excellent stuff.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2012
The pour is a murky, copper color with a very full, creamy, fluffy, white head which settles to a thick, rocky layer and leaves drippy, Belgian lace. The nose is resinous, spicy phenols, barnyard funk, some passionfruit, and light florals. The flavor is similar with still barnyard funk, tart lemony brett, very resinous, still some passionfruit notes. The palate is lively, medium, velvety, and drying a bit. The beer finishes with the moderately high bitterness, a moderate acidity, the dryness from the brett funk, and lingering spicy phenols. A pretty nice attempt at conjoining two contrasting beer styles, most Belgian IPA types have too many clashing notes. My only complaint is that the overall acidty is a bit overwhelming at times with the brett and high alpha hops. Nice beer from a nice brewery.

4pack bottles. Darker red than expected. Belgian Yeast smell, foamy. Dry like a saison but with slight sourness. Hops slightly out balance pale malt

rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Clear, pale copper with a big, foamy whitish head with some fairly heavy lacing. Aroma of funky Brett, fruity: sweet and sour, and light sweet malts. Taste is yeasty and fruity; somewhat sweet and moderately bitter with a nice spiciness. Slightly dry, medium bodied, and slightly fizzy. Very good stuff.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured clear copper color with medium white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy spruce and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very solid brew.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a big off-white head that settles into a small film and heavy lace. Aroma of citrusy hops, bretty funk, bready malts, some spices, resin, and pineapple. Flavor of resinous, citrusy hops, fainter funk than in the nose, bigger bready malts, resin, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a creamy, bready mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Some citrusy bitterness lingers. The brett is pretty subtle; I wonder if it will emerge more over time.

Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy golden orange pour, with white head. Citrusy hops, lemon grass, brett-hay, somewhat grainy, and yeasty. Nice clean and drinkable. I like it.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Dark orange pour with a hazy body and beautiful rocky white head. The nose is quite curious- lots of woody brett incarnations that can be likened to cedar, fresh bark mulch, and tropical fruits. A nice herbal dough follows. Big citrus and nectar fruit in the flavor with dry earthen brett, herbaceous florals, and a doughy finish. Medium body with great effervescence- caressing and pillowy with a dry finish.

Hazy gumwood pour with a gorgeous, large frothy head. Nose holds really nice cedar, hemlock, bark mulch, and touches of grapefruit rind, grass, and subtle citric funk. Good lemon flesh comes through on the nose as well. The flavor brings more doughy yeast, some dry wood chips, and a beautiful tannic loamy brett character; very unique combination. Palate starts with that medium bodied, semi-dry breadiness, then turns to increased dryness on the finish. Lovely stuff.
