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.

Gregis' rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours into a towering, loose, fluffy, off-white head that takes its time receding into a hazy amber-orange body. The nose is a blend of dry Brettiness and light, fruity yeast notes (pear and apple). Also present is a distinct vinyl note that is a surprisingly pleasant addition to the medley. Once the head dissipates, however, the vinyl note nearly disappears and the aroma becomes more integrated with a touch of spice added to the mix. The palate is light to medium-bodied with soft, fine carbonation and a drying, somewhat tart and moderately funky/sour (good funk) finish. The flavor is less fruity than the nose, with the Brett dominating the flavor profile: horse blanket funk and a mild white pepper note take front stage over a pale malt back that just hints at the apple and pear notes found in the aroma. Quite drying and funky with additional phantom notes of leather and peach pit dancing in and out of focus. This is the kind of beer that could simultaneously scare craft beer newbies away from "Belgian-Style" Pale Ales and make Brett fans hear "Ode to Joy" in their heads. I lie somewhere between those two groups. I enjoy the nuances that it possesses but I would have preferred it have dialed-in closer to where the nose is at this point. This is definitely an interesting beer, and if Brett is your thing, this is a good candidate to cellar and crack one every 3-6 months to see how it evolves.

AgentAle (1662) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Aroma is clove, citrus, an earthiness and funkiness. Taste is sweet crisp maltiness with light honey and caramel. A definite sour and vinegar presence here but it finished pretty smooth. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium fluffy head that retains quite well.

Hangover (1129) - oxford, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Either I got a bad batch or this beer is whack. HUGE carbonation level, spurted all over my desk and took 20 min to pour a decent looking beer. Yeasty flavor is about all I get other than my mouth wanting to explode from the carbonation. Some orange I guess. All 4 bottles in the pack had the same crazy carbonation. Reminds me of a high gravity homebrew bottled way too early.

snoworsummer (5471) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy bright gold with a thick frothy white head. Tastes like pine and grassy hop bitterness, with some funkyness, light bready malts, and some citrus fruit, and with some lingering hop resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells grassy, like pine, and citrus hops, biscuit and straw malts, orange peel, lemon, herbs, and some funk.

Clear amber, rocky cream head. Zesty citric aroma and bread crust. Nicely balanced, leaves a bread crust aftertaste. A mix of yeasty, simple malts and hops.
