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.

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

12oz bottle: Pours a slightly hazy golden brass with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with a lot of barnyard funk and some floral hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with a mild sweetness and grassy and floral hop flavor along with plenty of dry, earthy, and semi-tart brett funkiness toward the finish. True to style and dangerously drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden caramel with a large, chunky white head. Aroma is pine, hops, citrus, a slight bit of sweetness from the malt backbone, and clean, dry brett through the finish. They really hit the balance on the hops and the brett perfectly on the aroma. Taste is slight hop bitterness up front with some pine and perhaps a bit of citrus before giving way to dry brett through the back half and then finishing a slight bit of malt sweetness and some bitterness. The brett suggests toast and a slight herbal character. The taste like the aroma is well-balanced. Mouthfeel is tight and dry. I really like this beer. Excellent.

The aroma is quite funky with the typical urinal cake and barnyard qualities that Bret brings. There is also a definite floral note as well a herbal quality. The appearnace is golden with a nice foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and better than most of this type. The palate is thin. Overall a really strange beer but I like it.

Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($12): Pours a light copper colour with a prodigious white head. Aroma is hell of powerful. It hits you like a bouquet of flowers, even with a stuffy nose. Some light fruitiness in there too along with le funk. Taste is quite hoppy at the front. Got some funk and earthiness in there. The Brett is certainly present in good form. Taste is weird and funked out. Aftertaste is much the same. Fortunately, I like beer like this.

this beer feels very funky, it has a real cellar flavor. the beer has the malts that is not very strong, the hops are very strong. still very funky. not quite my style

Bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is very nicely herbal, a light funk, fruity and hoppy, all kinds of goodness going on. Nice tropical character along with the belgian yeast giving the spicy funk. Flavor really brings out the sweet tropical fruits more, still a bit of funk, the brett really hitting heavy towards the finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Excellent beer

crossovert (12929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
355ml bottle. It pours a murky amber, huge white head that leaves soapy lacing. The smell is dominated by brett. Smells like an Orval but less complex with a bigger medicine scent. The taste is mostly brett too, a subtle bit of hops rounds it out. If you like brett give it a try.

arminjewell (9661) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy reddish orange with very nice lacing white head, excellent looking. Aroma has notes of biscuity cracker, nice lemon, pineapple, tropical fruit with some passionfruit and mango, touch of spice and earth notes, hints of funk in there as well. Taste is a nice mix of biscuity cracker with sweet pineapple, mango notes, hints of lemon and funk notes but very balanced and slight at this point, touch of drying earth goes quickly into a very drying finish. This is excellent, refreshing, tasty with a nice depth of flavor as well. Will look forward to how this evolves.

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange-yellow pour with a monster pillowy white head. Awesome nose of yeast, citrus, and Brett. Moderate palate. Taste is the same elements as the aroma, but not quite as striking. Very nice brew.
