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.

12oz bottle. Clear orange color. Nice, very dense and big and solid light tan head, that more or less stays put. Light carbonation, very smooth. Some dryness, good texture, sort of estery. Interesting, hard to describe aroma... Some lemon zest, also spice in the hops. Taste is some bitter, zesty sweetness, and some balanced spice. Good, interesting, tasty brew. A nice Belgian-style.

4pk, Specs .. . Pours a deep orange .. great foam head, lacing is good too .. . lovely uplifting brett nose .. . light tartness .. . an enjoyable brew to drink while watching american football playoffs .. . put one bottle away just to see what the brett does, even though it seems pretty brett heavy already . .. . my cat literally had the shit scared out of her today, i have now renamed her "stinky" ..

Bottle via StateLine.. This beer looks great. Big rocky head that sticks around. Nice orange color. Taste is initially crystal malt presence with some fruitnyess. Crisp....with a slight, very slight tartness from the brett. Body is light pale ale and refreshing. Overall: This is the second time I have had this beer and just cant get in to it too much... Love green flash but not this beer.

Moderately dry and funky. Rather than horse blanket I picked up notes of straw and grass. It was well carbonated and had a huge white head. I liked it quite a bit, but wish the mouth feel was a little smoother.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly opaque dark golden color. Aroma of bubblegum, clove, resin. Flavor is clove, cough drop, banana, pepper. Iíve tried it twice and it just doesnít meld well for me. Tastes too much like cough medicine. However, all others who have tried it that I have spoken to, like it. So, take that into account.

This is solid stuff. Lightly hopped and a nice brett character leaves sourness on the nose but completely dry on the palate. Taste is subtle and nice. Nothing crazy but solid.

Had on tap at the brewery and bought a four pack to take home. Burnt orange pour with a 2 inch plus cream colored head. Aroma of linoleum, pine, and dirty garbage disposal, and sugar. Taste is funk, pine, and bitterness. Carbonation level is high, but palate is still smooth.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 12 oz. bottle @ home. Iíve been looking forward to trying this, as not only did it sound interesting but Iíve really had good luck with Green Flash of late. Somewhat hazy, burnt orange appearance with a big, light tan head. Toasty, warm caramel malty, mildly bretty, light barnyard, mild grassy aroma that is pretty malt forward. Thereís a lot more bretty funkiness in the flavor along with citrus fruit notes like pineapple and tangerine and a toasty caramel malts. I kind of a get a weird booze note to the beer, however, especially on the finish. I somewhat enjoy it but itís not perfect. By the way, the bottle may be the thickest 12oz bottle that Iíve ever come across.

Update: Now at about four months old, Iím getting a lot of plastic in the aroma. More plastic in the flavor but not quite as bad. Tastes pretty shitty to me at this point, but Iíll hold off on updating my rating at this point.
