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.

bomber. Chunky, pillow white head. Nose of funky hops & farm smells. Bubbly, slightly tart mouthfeel. Easy funk.

Aroma of wheat and hops. Drank mostly out of the bottle (got a four pack). This was an incredibly foamy beer with not a lot of taste compared to other Green Flash brews (which I love). Get anything else by them before this.

I almost gave this a 5 for appearance, except the towering fluffy head would be mare at home on a tripel than on a Belgian ale. Nice yeasty aroma some floral notes, a hazy copper orange body, taste is yeast and some mellow hoppiness. Overall a great attempt at the Belgian style.

Transfer from BA review on 7-17-12 - Poured from bottle into tulip glass Appearance – The beer pours with a nice hazy orange color with an enormous white head. The head is insanely huge with multiple pours needed to get the 12 oz bottle into a ~ 20 oz pint glass. Eventually it does fade however, to give a light amount of lacing. Smell – The smell was a wonderful blend of fruit and yeast with notes of candy sweetness. The fruit was largely of citrus, mango, and a light pineapple. These aromas mingle with some other lighter aromas as well. There is also a light presence of floral hop and some notes of a green apple sourness. One wonderful smell. Taste – The taste starts out with a nice malty and fruity flavor. A citrus and tropical fruit sweetness mixed with a nice biscuit base. As it moves on some grapefruit citrus and a lighter floral hop come to the tongue. Accompanying these hop flavors are tastes of sour Brett yeasty flavors. As the taste advances further and goes toward the end it sours even more with other notes of more bitter hop coming to the tongue. In the end it leaves a bitter and sour flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the light to medium side for the 7 % abv. As for the carbonation, it is on the slightly higher side (as would have been perceived from the super heavy head). The lighter body was slightly off putting for the hop and malt flavors, but it was good for the more sour and bitter flavors. The higher carbonation level did the same as the body and really accentuated the sour flavors of the brew. Overall – A tasty sour beer with probably one of the best aromas of a beer I have ever smelt. One I would go to again given the chance.

(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a lot of white head. Sweet yeast and spices in the aroma. Mild hop bitterness. Flavor has that same spicy Belgian yeast at the start with a dry hop bite coming up at the end. Way too carbonated, but pretty good.

Wonderful aroma and flavor. Floral, almost a lavender taste. Very strong on the pallate. Wonderfull beer but could be overwhelming if I had a lot more of them.

A few yrs old. Very carbonated bottle. Could not pour the entire beer in the glass at once. Several finger head. High energy bubbles. Nice lacing. Lots of Brett on the nose. Taste is dry. The beer showing signs of oxidation. A little sweetness too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a bretty beast... Pours a murky orange with a huge bubbly head. Brett barnyard funk dominates the nose, with some spice and a hint of fruit. Those same things are fully present in the taste, along with coriander and even a bit of a cardamom. A bit astringent. Crisp medium mouth without a lot of carbonation. It’s not as refined and balanced as Orval, but nonetheless good if you’re a brett head.

12oz brown bottle. Foam creeping up the neck on uncapping... a good sign? Rich golden colour, huge column of white foam, dense, thick. Huge bands of lacing in the glass. Nose has leathery bretty funk, lemony sharpness as well. Flavours of brett/funk/yeast, leathery. Mild hoppy finish, dry and crisp. Medium body with persistent carbonation. Excellent bretted pale ale, as an Orval fan this hits the mark and then some.

Pours a hazy orange with a huge frothy three finger white head diminishing gradually to a lumpy marshmallow-like cap and heavy lacing. Nose is strongly dominated by brett funk, with a little fruit and sweet malt in the background. Taste follows suit, but with more malt presence, as well as a little umami. Mouth feel is medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a gentle alcohol warming. I see this compared to Orval, but I don’t think I agree - the brett is much more pronounced than Orval, and the fruit less so. This is more like Gato Negro, with its heavy-handed brett funk, albeit with a little more West Coast character. The brett settles down somewhat as the glass progresses and the beer warms.
