From a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A: straw gold and hazy. A massive three finger head that sticks around for a while. Eventually it breaks down and leaves a thin film with a small foamy iceberg in the center of the glass.

S: sour apples and funkyness.

T: follows the nose...seems a bit like some saisons I have had, but this seems a little off.

M: high carbonation and dry finish.

O: honestly, I am a little befuddled by this beer. It would seem that everyone I know who has had it has had a different reaction. I can't say I didn't enjoy this beer, but I can't say I did either. It continues to be an enigma to me.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle ( bottled 7/3/13) into a pint glass, Um...a gentle pour yields 3/4 of a glass of frothy off white foam on a layer orange amber colored cloudy liquid

S: bubblegum and apple, cider-like aromas, caramel

T: Sour apple, something is wrong here

M: very high carbonation

O: Is this beer supposed to taste like this or is something wrong? I don't like the sour apple hop funk taste.

The Rayon Vert poured a hazy gold with a substantial off white head that speaks to the delightful effervescence. The aroma is all over the place with citrusy hops, some funky sourness, and a bit of Belgian yeast that sets you up for a dynamic flavor adventure. The taste is all over the flavor map in a good way with the citrus and bitter hops, some sweet fruitiness, along with some funk from the Brettanomyces that is all riding the wave of the Belgian yeast. Yes it’s all in there and it all tastes great. The flavors are delicately and deliciously balanced on a creamy medium body with plenty of that delightful effervescence that makes this a truly unique beer. I really dig this beer.
