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.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Bottle served in a tulip. Pours dark honey with heavy champagne bubbles and a GINORMOUS head. This little 12 oz. bottle filled three glasses! Outstanding retention and lacing. Huge bretty aroma. Also some sweet candi sugar, floral hops, bright grass and spices. Light sweet, medium bitter, light tart flavor. Medium body, creamy-oily texture, average carbonation, and a bitter, dry, light tart finish. The brett is obviously amped up since the last time I had this. This is off the charts for a straight up Belgian ale.

Bottle. It pours a clear orange color with a towering white head. The aroma is very floral with notes of lavender, rose petals, orange and minor hints of phenolic, toasty brett. Not strong, but I definitely pick it up. The flavor is a bit sweeter with some more oranges and peach followed by some floral hops and Belgian spiciness. The mild notes of brett in the finish dries it out some along with the hop bitterness. Really pretty nice.

So, I wonder if this is a different beer than Treasure Chest. They seem to be the same description and they happen to be the same abv...though this one has much higher ratings than Treasure Chest; So we’ll see how I feel after this experience. Bottle. Big frothy head retains form above the hazed pumpkinesque orange color that sits below. Nose give forth strong waves of belgian yeast esters, with plenty of banana notes, some mandarine orange characteristics as well. Flavors are citrusy with a foundation of banana/clove yeast esters, lots of orange flavors from the hops and malt sugars; seemingly balanced. Tastes like a restrained belgian IPA, I suppose. Need to let the brett develop though as it doesn’t have much, if any, presence at the time being. Can’t really tell if this is different than the Treasure Chest since I’ve been drinking through my case for the last several months and the brett in that beer has changed the beer gradually; don’t remember how it tasted fresh...though I suppose I could go look at my rating of it, which was from a fresh bottle.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with about an inch and a half off-white head that stays around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (lemon peel, tropical fruit), peppery spice, pears and some bretty funk. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like citrusy hops (apricots, orange peel, tropical fruit), peppery spice, bready malt and a bit of brett. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a little creamy and well carbonated. I think it’s a good beer. I’ll have to try and save a bottle for a while to see how it changes (or evolves as stated on the label), but that’s going to be hard to do! The 4-pack was $10.99.

Green Flash has DONE IT--recreated Orval! Yes, my jaded friends...THIS IS IT , BABY...the "gout de Orval"...the heaping, meringue-like, foamy head...the medicinal notes...the amber cast...the funky, wild, seductive yeast and the sublimely herbaceous notes of hop-vines, writ large! This the REAL DEAL!!!!!!! DEMAND you drink it! (And, NO--despite my SD locus--I’m NOT affiliated with the ’FLASHERS!")

12 oz. bottle from four pack I found at Bevmo. Pours a amber orange with a nice foamy off white head. aroma is of sweet malt, apricot, orange, yeast, and some barnyard wet hay. flavor is apricot, orange rind, sweet malt, biscuit, yeast, and some sourness funk from the brett. has medium-full body with a nice creamy mouthfeel and a dry, sour, wine like finnish. overall, a very good Belgian ale from Green Flash.
