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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass. Aroma: a funkiness is present. smells sort of like antiseptic or medical cleanser. also some floral hops and hay/grass. unriped fruit, possibly oranges. very strange Appearance: a mountain of head formed that was thick and lingered for so long. like whipped cream on a sundae. slightly hazy and copper colored Taste: medium sweet and light bitter. lightly sour. Palate: medium body, thin texture. average carbonation. slightly metallic aftertaste and light bitter aftertaste. Overall: Was surprised by the crazy amount of head on this one. my second glass I was able to get all of the bottle conditioning yeast into it and it improved the taste. Pretty tasty after getting past the original funkiness present. I dont think i would have liked this if i only had a taster.

Golden with an inch of off-white head. Aroma is spiced apple, slight bretty funk. and mildy spicy hop buzz. Taste is a muted version of the smell, with more brett skunkiness (not a bad thing). Could have used a bit more carbonation, but they may have been leaving room for more from the brett.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a monster topping. The aroma is brutally wild ... Funky and sickeneningly sweet. Uh oh. Thank goodness that sense of infection doesnt fully carry to the tongue. It still has a Brett-like funk, but it mellows. Gamey. Not my favorite Green Flash. Guess Im an exception here, but I dont care for the combination here.. (#4517, 3/6/2012)

Got this as an extra from Pat, thanks a lot for this one. Smells awesome. Really citrusy and spicy almost. I get the hops but this smells rather belgian ale-esque. The taste is similar to the nose. A nice funkyness and hop and malt on the taste buds. Fantastic and I want more of this stuff!

Beautiful rusty orange. Fresh nose with a hint of melon. Layered, complex palate going from Brett/yeast to spices finally landing on tart green apple through the finish. Fresh and clean.

On tap in the seen Flash tap room. Dark gold, cinnamon aroma. Sort of a funk to this beer, but a real cinnamon after taste.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Interesting. Nose is citrus hoppy with a subtle horse like aroma. The beer is hazy reddish copper with a pillowy white head. The taste is citrus hop, more of the banyardness, and a little metallic touch. The body is medium with a bitter twang. Good but different.

Im not a huge Belgium style fan, and I found this to be pretty weak. Lacking on flavor imo
