A: Gold with a huge frothy head and okay lacing though it fades a bit

S: Hoppy with Belgian yest: banana, pineapple, grassy, earthy, bready, and slightly vegetal

T: Delicious blend of tropical fruits from AMerican hops and Belgian yeast; pineapple, mango, grapefruit, bananas on top of a toasty bready malt base

F: A touch thin with a decent amount of sticky residue

O: A really nice blend of west coast American style with Belgian styles; really refreshing; great with lots of food and cheese; I will return

Poured into an Allagash flute on 4/4/12

Pale, watery caramel brown; medium depth. In a classic "Uh-oh?" moment I'm contending with a head of foam that easily bests four fingers (and the brim of the glass). The head deflates to about a finger's worth but doesn't leave much lace, save a few pepperings here and there. Lace catches more halfway through the glass.

Wow, the aroma is bad. Pale malt trappings and dollops of light fruit are burdened with a wretched vegetal presence that ruins everything. Amid herbs and spices is a pervassive cooked veggie aroma that manages to smell simultaneously steamed, burnt and rotten. Sometimes it smells like an herb garden, sometimes it smells like nursing home kitchen dish pans soaking in water.

Rayon Vert tastes just as unsettling. Onion, herbs, wet grass, pine, and tangy, over-ripe fruit notes. Quite like perfume, too. Zesty citric tones sit underneath and move forward a bit as it warms up.

Medium body with average carbonation. It's kind of gritty, though. The finish is actually ok; juicy citrus notes emerge at that point. Well, some bitterness does linger, too.

Rayon Vert is an good study in palate desensitization and/or acclimation. I started off hating it, then didn't mind it quite as much. Toward the end of the bottle I find myself tired of it. I wouldn't be inclined to drink this again.

An artfully brewed beer for sure. This ale pours a nice copper orange that is hazy with a creamy ivory head that lingers.

The aroma takes the mind to the country side, the feeling and smells of a farm come to mind and the rustic nature of the beer comes to life with earthy hops backing. The flavor is very much the smae as the aroma, I get hardy grain and spring pollen, a slight bright citrus lime flavor coming through on the finish. The mouthfeel is good but the over carbonation is covering up the body. Overall, this is an interesting beer to drink that keeps you guessing. If you like Orval you will like this. good stuff

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Big head that initially fills a quarter of the glass, very fine and delicate foam of eggshell white, much better retention than expected albeit with minimal stickiness to the lacing. Cloudy liquid with a strong orange rust metallic coloration, perhaps a light brown tint while more yellow at the rims, loosely assembled but large bubbles rise swiftly throughout. Yeast, flowers, orange peel, wheat germ, apples and pears comprise most of the nose, some earthiness but not really as funky as one might expect, good density but lacks staying power. Full-bodied, here in the mouth it’s creamy and bottom heavy, sinks deeply into the palate. Develops a peppery kick as well as added grassiness, supports the tartness of the orange, lemon citrus and clove. Vague minerally aspect but, again, clean on the whole. Dry, the pear, peach, apple fruit feels cellar dried, most of the sweet juiciness gone. Manages to not appear overtly hoppy nor malty, minimal breadiness or doughiness. The citrus outlasts the rest. More interesting than pleasurable, little is casual about it.

A: Poured a monster 2 and a half finger head. I'll be a big more subdued on the pour next time. Carbonation appears robust. This beer looks alive. Color is a caramel fig brown. Lacing and glass retention are standout.

S: Fruity and funky!! Pear, apple, and funk. It is very sweet and grassy.

T: Yeast, pepper, barnyard funk, apple, pear, spices. Interwoven through the fruitiness is a floral green stem flavor. The ABV is almost completely masked.

M: Tingly, full, sticky. This beer is moving and shaking across your tongue. Finishes clean, tart, and ever so slightly wet.

O: For me, this beer is controversial. It's complexity confuses. Others have mentioned this beer is a homage to the mighty Orval. There certainly are parallels, however it does not have the complexity of Orval. For this style, this beer truly delivers.

The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a ton of brett, as well as some nice leather notes. Hidden in the background are some spice and orange citrus notes.

The flavor is more of the same. What stands out the most is the brett and orange notes, but there is also quite a bit of leather and white pepper mixed in. The beer is very dry.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very nice.

Had this on 2012-04-05 in Columbia, PA

A - Golden-straw with a 4-finger pillowy white head into a belgian-style 13 oz goblet. Head fades to 2-fingers pretty quickly.

S - Fruity yeast esters with smells like pear and apple cider starting to ferment and white wine. Mild grassy aroma and very pale malt.

T - Taste has more grassy/hay, malty and bitter than the smell. The pear and apple flavors are still there but the Brett sourness, while tasty, doesn't let their fruit juiciness shine through. The white wine taste is certainly still there. The bready sweetish malt helps support the flavor. The aftertaste is lightly sour and pretty bitter.

M - Light-medium body and medium-high carbonation. Crisp and pretty refreshing.

O - A very nice take on a Brett beer. It's not as balanced as Orval but I like the way it is more hopped up both fruit-wise and bitter-wise.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Brilliant slightly hazy orange/light brown. A few cascading carbonation bubbles lead to a huge head that lasts.

S - A light farmhouse/hay funk is detected first with just a slight noble hop aroma as well. A few very light citrus aromas are present as well. Not too deep but pleasing.

T - Follow the aroma and has a light funk at the beginning but quickly transitions to an orange-like Belgian flavor that is sweet, but pleasant. Finishes with a light floral and lite tartness from the brett. Not too pungent or heavy on flavors but meld well and nicely done.

M/O - Medium body with great carbonation. The brett definitely turns this beer into something very good and Green Flash pulled it off well. Slightly velvet-like on the palate and finishes semi-dry but aftertaste fades quickly. For $9/4-pack it's not a bad deal an affordable brett-beer that doesn't suck.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours a clear golden color with a three finger pillow of creamy white head with great retention. Nice sticky gobs of thick lace when it settles down a bit.

The aroma first gives off scents of sourdough yeast with hints of orange zest with some lemon and bananas. A little bit of a spicy undertone here with pepper but mostly fruity. The pallet lives of a mellow fruity flavor with a yeasty background. Candied orange zest with some lemon hits with some lingering spice and mellow bitter hops.

Light body with some expansive carbonation. Lingers on the pallet nicely. Overall this one is pretty enjoyable. A nice west coast take on some a Belgian style.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Rayon Vert opens with a crisp, fruity Belgian nose, bursting with banana, apple, pear, and white grape, accompanied by clove and black pepper. An almost Flemish like sourness (though very light in potency) lingers in the background, coming across here as grapefruit, lemon, and lime juices, with hints of rose hips. Touches of toast crust and biscuit, as well as brown sugars, help ground the brew. As a whole, the nose is excellent, the only marring character being a slightly-too-strong sourness that adds a strange quality. But the rest of the nose is well-balanced and enticing.

On the tongue, the beer opens with a series of flavors that initially closely resemble the aromas: strong bananas and cloves, with smaller doses of apples and pears, and a small sourness about the edges that comes across as lemon/lime/grapefruit citrus. But a good hop addition brings touches of dandelion stem and grapefruit rind, helping to offset this sourness. The hops are light, but do stand out nicely, and also slightly tingle the soft palate. Late in the mouthful, as the sugars die off, a good toast crust and baguette base appears. The aftertaste is mainly hoppy grapefruits, cloves, and bread, and lingers for a long time. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is medium-high, adding to the burning sensation on the tongue and soft palate.

Overall, this is very good beer, and surprising in the potency and balancing effect of the hops, setting this brew firmly aside from most of the Belgian Ales. Personally, I find the hops a great addition, and think more beers of this style should follow suit. The beer is still well-balanced, even with the hops. The 7.0% ABV does come out a bit, giving the brew vodka-like alcoholic vapors, and the sourness is slightly strange, but for the most part this is great fare. Worth trying.

12 oz bottle into a mug

Appearance - hazy yellowish orange with a frothy thick two finger head that stays around. Looks delicious.

Smell - Fruity, banana, light hops, not to strong though.

Taste - Moderate hops up front followed by malt and brett, funky but yummy, definitely different than traditional American ales.

Mouthfeel - Light dry mouthfeel, fairly carbonated, carbonation feels a bit zesty on my tongue.

Overall - A good beer in a style that i haven't had much of. The flavor of the brett takes a bit to get used to but is enjoyable.

Bottle from Rick's in Alexandria. Served in a Green Flash Rayon Vert chalice.

Pours a nice, fairly-clear amber color with a nice off-white head. Good retention of the foamy white head. Some lacing on the way down and a good cap and collar throughout.

The nose carries some moderate hopping as well as a nice fruitiness and light earthy character. Great presence in the nose, really serving to complement the hops.

Flavor brings a nice bit of fruity hops along with some earth, light malt, and some Brett through the background. Body is light-to-medium with a good bitterness and a nice bit of Brett and earth to really round things out. Quite dry through the finish.

This is a really fantastic beer and I'm beyond excited that it's year round. This is finally an off-the-shelf year-round beer that is worthy of sitting beside sixers of Two Hearted in my fridge. Bravo, Green Flash.

16oz bottle with the typical lack of bottle date thanks to Green Flash. Come on guys! Poured this one into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Pours a really pretty crystal clear, bright orange color. Finger and a half of bright white fluffy head. Bottle conditioned beer. Great carbonation.

S: I definitely get that Brett on the nose as soon as I opened the bottle. Horse blanket. Wet hay. You know the types. Smells bright and airy and clean. Lemon, grassy hop notes so I feel this is one on the fresher side.

T: It's still a sort of fresh bottle, and you get some hop character up front. But then you get that funk from the Brett. It's pretty darn refreshing. Lemon, pepper, grassy, etc. There is a mild metallic flavor in the mid palate, but that is really the only thing that I didn't like about this sip. Good bottle.

M: Medium bodied beer with great carbonation.

O: If their plan was a homage to Orval, I think they did them justice. it's a solid brew for sure. Just like Orval, the earlier you get it the more hops you'll get. The later, the more Brett you should pull. I'd be interested to see what this one tastes like down the road.

Poured from a bottle into a Duvel tulip. Beautiful clear orange gold color with a massive chunky head and excellent retention. The beer has a tart, dry smell. Grassy, lemony, and herb-like. Carbonation is quite high. There is a slight barnyard scent on the nose as well (from the Brett).

Very interesting flavor. High carbonation excites the tastebuds and opens your palate. The flavor is tart, dry, champagne-like, and slightly sour. Lightly hopped with a slightly dry finish. The flavor lingers a bit as a lemony finish. Mouthfeel is lively and crisp.

For me, this beer is almost like a hybrid between a pale ale and a geuze. It has a stony dryness that is reminiscent of Duvel, yet also has a slight sour Geuze-like note to it as well. The flavor is very appetizing and dry and the price is not prohibitive. Sadly, since I haven't yet tried an extensive variety of Belgian-style beers, I feel that the novelty of this beer (with its use of Brett) is a bit wasted on me. I shall have to try it again after I've had an opportunity to experience a few more beers.

A- Pours a clear, golden orange(until the sediment turns the clarity to a haze) with a huge white head. O.K. lacing throughout.

S- Slight clove spice, hops, and an "unknown" "funk" to my senses.

T- Hops. Just a hint of sweet clove spice at the start. Followed by the "unknown" "funk".

M- Clean. Somewhat dry finish. O.K. carbonation.

O- This is my second Green Flash beer. Either my taste buds are uneducated or something is a miss for me with this brewery. Could it be "Brett"? Only asking as I have not had that style. There is an aftertaste here that I am simply not a fan of.

Oh I should have bought more. This tastes like not fresh, but somewhat young Orval for the creeping Brett character. Right now it provides a gentle tang and is beginning to roll over the mild caramel malt taste and Belgian spice. I mean it's clearly a Brett beer. There's the trademark horsey farmhouse funk, but it hasn't overun the ale yet. Very cool beer. Admirably balanced for an American craft brewer, I've had too many failed attempts at sours by domestic breweries. I don't think this beer is at it's most complex yet, but still check it out, this is a very cool beer.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Purchased from K&L.

There's no bottle date, so I am free to assume this is uber-fresh and review it accordingly.

A: Upon pouring, the beer transforms largely into foam, which simply does not dissolve. My Duvel tulip is over 5 fingers of head with an extremely murky, burnt sunset orange body hiding underneath. As the head retreats, it leaves huge swaths of sticky curtains down the sides of the glass. A bit overcarbed and not clear, but otherwise great to look at.

S: Brett funk is evident even from pouring at arm's length. It fills the area with aromas of hay, minerals, lemon rind, and pepper. Occasionally there's an off-note of sulfur. I'm not picking up much in the way of hops aside from a small grapefruit presence; right now this is pretty yeast-dominated, but that's not a bad thing.

T: The taste is somewhat hoppier than the nose indicated. Grapefruit, tangerine blend seamlessly with musty, barnyard brett expressions. There are interesting orchard fruit flavors of apple and peach in here. They lead into lemon rind and white pepper in the finish.

M: This has a very clean finish. One thing I don't like about Sanctification (which isn't quite the same style, but you can see why I'd make a comparison) is the minerally finish it has. This beer closes dry and clean, with just the lightest oiliness far into the aftertaste. The carbonation is spritzy enough to make the beer feel lively, but not watery.

O: I wish they'd bottle date; I get the feeling my bottle isn't really that fresh. That's probably the only thing stopping me from buying more in the future, probably by the case. Otherwise, this is drinkable, refreshing, and affordably priced.

This beer really appealed to me. It's kind of like a well-hopped Orval. It looks great - hazy orange coppery color, big fluffy whip cream head, excellent retention, nice lace.

The aroma has noticeable brett; funky hay, grass, barnyard notes, and a prominent citric hoppiness. Flavor follows suit, striking a nice balance between the west coast-style citrus hops and the brett. Musty and herbal. Complex and interesting.

Carbonation is medium-high, body medium-thin, finish is quite dry and crisp. Excellent overall mouthfeel has you going back for more quickly.

A real winner from Green Flash sure to appeal to fans of brett beers.

12 oz bottle. $3.10 from Neds.

Appearance: Clear light orange, gold. Pours very bubbly, with a huge rocky head. It fades down to a thin layer of foam, but never fades. Pretty good lacing. Bonus points for the head.

Smell: Sweet pale malt and light fruit swirling around in slightly musty yeast and fresh Brett aroma. There's a clean, grassy hops aroma too.

Taste: Surprising hoppy bitterness here. Not too much funky yeast flavor, but lots of Brett. Hops are bitter grassy, and citrus peel-esque. Bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Very soft and creamy. Its bubbly, but not sharp. A little dry on the finish, but not as dry as Orval.

Overall: A very nicely done Belgian pale with Brett. A bit too much hops bitterness detracts a bit from the flavor and the overall enjoyment, but very well done. I'll definitely get this again. Its also a good cheap way to show someone what Brett smells/tastes like.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy, burnt orange with golden highlights. Has 4+ fingers of rich, thick, creamy head that sticks around forever. Lacing is spotty by the time it finally dissipates. Has moderate carbonation with yeast laying at the bottom of the glass.

N: The yeast is very prominent. Clove, black pepper, barnyard and somewhat tart Brett characteristics similar to a Wild Ale. There's also McIntosh apple and pear along with hints of caramel and honeydew melon. Smells fantastic!

T: Perfume-like florals, slightly tart Brett, barnyard and hints of white wine upfront. Mid-palate brings in huge doses of crisp McIntosh apple, pear and honeydew along with some clove and notes of caramel. Peppercorn and a hint of wild cherry hit the back end. The finish has everything in harmony in a Brett induced symphony. Very perfume-y.

M: Light-medium bodied, chalky, crisp, semi-dry and refreshing.

O: Crisp, refreshing and yeasty. Very balanced and flavorful showing some subtle Wild Ale characteristics. An excellent value. A 4-pack was about $12 in PA. This is just excellent for the Brett lover.

12 oz. bottle, I finally found this on the shelves in the Southland,

A: Pours a gorgeous burnt orange into an Orval chalice, with a pillowy full white head, leaving very good lacing, great head retention.

S: Great yeasty nose, tangerine and lemon peel with white pepper.

T: White pepper and citrus peel, lots of yeast character, some bitter melon hop flavour as well. On the hoppy end for its style, but very well balanced.

M: Medium-bodied, frothy carbonation, nice long aftertaste, soft feel.

O: This is fantastic beer as I've certainly come to expect from Green Flash. Really like America meets a Dupont/Orval collab, very well done. I liked this a lot. At $9/4-pack it's a true steal this day and age. I've seen a ton worse for $10+/750 mL that's for sure. This is just really good beer.

Golden orange with a massive white head. Only slight lacing. A sweet and funky smell; sugary lemon, hay, and some pepper. Flavor starts off with some lemon and apple that leads into some tartness, some pepper, and sugared hay. Funky. Crisp, medium bodied to this. A nice brew for sure, the funkiness to this certainly adds a uniqueness to the style. They do it well but not sure I prefer this approach to the usual.

Served this 12 oz. brown bottle in a Tripel Karmeliet glass. No date. The head was massive and the color of old paper. The beer was a semi-hazy orange color.

The smell was earthy, yeasty. Bubblegum. Juicy fruit.

The taste reflected the aroma. Additionally there was a vivid spiciness and tart apple character. A bit medicinal, band-aid like.

The mouthfeel was very zesty on the tongue. Medium bodied with plant of carbonation.

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. Big thanks to BA KevSal for including this as an extra in a recent trade!

Appearance: Moderate pour yields a 3 inch, white, fluffy head (let the Orval comparisons begin). Head dissipates slowly, leaving several tight parallel rings around the glass along with additional clumps of lacing. Pours a clear orange before adding the yeast at the bottom of the bottle, then hazy.

Smell: Whoa, sensory overload! Hops, herbs, fresh greens, too much to keep track of.

The primary aroma is sort of a hoppy effervescence that reminds me of fresh Houblon Chouffe. Along with that is lots of berry fruitiness, with a slightly cologne-like brettanomyces tang underneath. Lots of aromas reminiscent of aromatic herbs come up, not rosemary but that kind of thing (if I was told that they put herbs in the beer, I'd be praising the tactful, seamless blending of herbs and beer).

Stays pretty consistent, with a background but growing brett funk and some lemony aroma coming out as well. Very nice.

Taste: Fruity up front, some peach and berry through the middle, then moderately bitter, dry finish (way less dry than I expected--let the Orval comparisons end). Pleasant toasted malt underneath it all.

It's clear early on what Green Flash was talking about when they said this might be their flagship beer if they were from Belgium. It's a well put together, crisp, refreshing pale ale with distinct but restrained hop and malt flavors--that happens to have some brett flavor as well.

The brett isn't dirty, nor is it really that funky or even tangy. It's more this highly recognizable, acidic, slight fruit flavor that I associate with several brett beers. This flavor blends beautifully with the fruity hops. Further into the bottle, some lemon rind and just the slightest bit of brett funk come out, mixing well with everything else.

On the subject of flagship pale ales, the alcohol here is hidden masterfully; I'd believe 4% ABV as opposed to the actual 7%.

Great tasting beer. Easily one of the more satisfying non-lambic/wild ale beers with brett that I've had.

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied. Creamy. Carbonation is soft and unobtrusive at first, then prickly during the dry, bitter finish.

Overall: Really an exceptional beer. I can see why the brewers at Green Flash were excited to release it, and I hope it's successful. Will pick up more if I see it in Boston or NYC.

I went to the store looking for Orval. They had sold out that morning, but Rayon Vert was recommended to me as an "Orval clone." Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't hoping for an American Orval and had tasted it on its own merits. In any case, while it certainly owes its influence to Orval, Orval it is not.

Rayon Vert is pretty dry and heavy on the brett. A bit bitter, there's a strong hop presence, as well as lemon candy, honey lozenges, and herbal tea flavors. I didn't feel it was a very balanced beer: while there were certainly many flavors, they almost seemed in competition and didn't really blend.

I would like to try the beer again in a blind tasting; perhaps with an open mind, I might have a different tasting experience. But for me, it doesn't rank among the better Belgian Pales, and it certainly doesn't compare to Orval.
