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.

Terminus (3680) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2012
bottle-Pours darker orange lightly hazy with a fluffy white head that lasted a very long time with sudsy-ness along the sides of the glass. nose is lite spice, barnyard (funk, mold) lite phenols, lite plastic note, and lite straw. flavors exhibit alot of the funk yeast qualities along with toasted malt grains, lite spice, lots of bitter hops (for this style) and lingering funk on the finish. This is alot better than theTreasure Chest beer and one of this breweries best! body is soft, full yet crisp with the perfect amount of carbonation. very well done GF

355ml bottle. Lots of loosely packed foam above a copper orange base. Musky perfume aromas, blooming flowers in the spring garden come to mind. The flavour is a bit perfumery as well but it is not too bad. Sits in the mouth well, has a good strong body and lingers on the palate.

Bottle. Appearance: very clear golden orange color, white head dissipating quickly. Aroma: first pour whiff almost skunky to me, but I think thatís the new style for me that I just donít know (think itís a kind of barnyard Brett smell); very earthy almost dirt yeast presence that works well with very sweet honeysuckle and orange and tart lemon citrus scent. Taste: strong meyer lemon citrus up front, some caramel malt coming through in the middle, finishing with a kind of lemony tartness and dried leaves taste that lingers a bit; very interesting/different yet delicious. Mouthfeel: relatively thin, medium "scrubbing" carbonation, very dry finish. Overall: this is my first Brett beer and Iím pleasantly surprised. Didnít know what was going on at first whiff so I looked it up and it made sense. Donít really love that aroma, but I really like the complexity of taste.

Bottle at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is pepper and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light dry finish. A good belgian from Green Flash.

12 oz bottle. Misty orange brown with white frosting. Nose is grass, honey, horse stall and bubblegum. Medium light, oily and fizzy with sharp carb. Taste is yeast, lime peel, tart green apple and toffee finishing with quinine and grass.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper big off-white head. Interesting aroma of citrus and spice and earthy yeast. Taste is not overly sweet or bitter. Good amount of malt, medium body, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish with spice. Overall this was unique and pretty good for a style thatís not my favorite.

nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2012
I donít know, I guess itís a 12oz bottle, but it could also be 33cl. Pours a mostly clear, bright gold with a frothy, clumpy white head. Nose is a really nice mix of Belgian yeasty esters and nice lemony hops, earthy, cloves, leafy veg, candy sugar, a little bit of birch. Flavor is sweet, spicy, candy sugar, lemons, oranges, mint, birch, earthy, grass, hay. Medium bodied finish. I know this is a take on Orval, but it needed a touch more Brett to be in the same league. As is though, itís very nice. Complex but drinkable. Could be sessionable if it wasnít 7% abv.
