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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Amber hue. Large cascading, frothy head. Settles slowly, and unevenly. Spotty lacing.

S: Pine resin, and lots of lemon citrus. Lavender, fermented raspberry, and freshly cut grass.

T: Bitter pine and hay, with just a slight hint of raspberry.

M: Crisp and steely. Bitter throughout, with a very dry finish.

D: The bitterness will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Amber hue, with a large head and some slight lacing. Nose is really piney, accentuated with citrus and other fruit notes, with a really floral character. Bitter pine and hay with a touch of fruit. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Served in a tasting glass at the brewery.

Funky for a pale ale. Is there some Brett in here? Whatever Belgian yeast Green Flash uses in their Belgian pales I'm not crazy about. Lightly tart. Fruity. Interesting. Ultimately, I don't think it's for me.
