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.

Dogbrick (7898) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 01/20/2012. This brew pours a hazy dark orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that burns away slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, brett and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of brett, floral hops, yeast and toasty malt. The finish is mildly funky with a sweet malt aftertaste. Nice Orval-esque beer from start to finish.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Bottle poured into my favorite tulip glass. Huge aroma of dank bread like yeasty bread fragrances with just a dance of floral hop. Pours with a gorgeouso frothy head and a mildly murky amber hue. Taste is just as they describe, if GF was originated in Belgium, this would be the flagship. It certainly is nowhere near as piney as the wonderful WCIPA, yet for the Belgian style Pale it is, I think it is rather remarkable.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2012
[RB Scavenger Hunt 2012 Engrish Challenge] 355mL. A huge, towering rock, cream, white head that pours hazier strawberries. Cathedral Si and powerful head retention, tulip explosion. Lace is big and sticky. The first nose is very muted orange and viscosity hoppier than expected move, a bit like horse manure, farm, micro plasticy yeast phenol poopy odd funk orange part. Warm, but fortunately lost most of their income and Satsuma tangerine fruity character. Taste is salty, bitter, leafy hoppy, but fortunately not sticky or sweet. It is better to get a lot of dry, not sticky sweet and hoppy. Character is not out of date. Blood orange and Curacao taste and quenching. Large farmy, outdoor, fresh character. Tasty. Can not wait for more. N6/Ap5/T8/P5

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
A light golden body with a white foamy 3/8" head, lacy. Funky aroma - armpit sweat, menthol, my socks wt and used. The taste is comparable to floor wax, foot liniment, and pepper. Lots of menthol build up as I drink further into it, but it is not all that drinkable and I am forcing myself. Crazy stuff.

Ratman197 (9664) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, horseblanket, lemon zest, white pepper and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, horseblanket, citrus and white pepper with a crisp dry lingering funky finish.

Strykzone (4903) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2012
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 (10698) - 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
