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.

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 (2215) - 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 (7670) - 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 (2139) - 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.

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Brilliant honey gold with big, flotsam, white head / Complex floral and bretty nose of orchard & stone fruits, honey, and funk / LIght to medium body, dry, good acidity and great balance with some stickiness under a fine, bitter, finish / Elegant flavors of resin, apple, pear, passion fruit, bread, chrysanthemum, straw, and some barnyard funk / A terrific bretty Belgian.

3fourths (8642) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 bottle. late in the glass i’m noticing a bit of toffee chew malt to go with the must, apricot fuzz and tart cheese rind brett and hop combination. smooth, dry and tart with medium-light body. brett is horsey and waxy and appropriately pungent, perfume / floral-heavy at times. quite good, though would prefer a version made at around 5%.

Pours fairly clear copper (with sediment left in bottle) with a very large sudsy light beige head. The aroma has more brett than expected giving a ’wild’ presence. There is also nectar fruits, lightly toasty malt, spiciness, grapefruit zest, pine and woodiness. Also aspects blend together very well. Medium / light body with fairly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with some earthy / grapefruit hoppiness, funky buggy brett, mild toast, nectar fruits, pepper, earthiness and wood. The finish has a yeast quality that strikes a nice balance between the brett and American ale yeast. Also added is some light leather and huskiness. The beer is fairly dry, but the finish is extra dry. There is a lot of complexity going on here. This really comes across to me as a US version of Orval. Can wait to see how this one ages. Love this a bunch now, but may bump up the rating even more if the aging goes well. Easily my favorite Green Flash beer.
