look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured out a hazy, bronze color with a three finger, tan head of long-lasting, bubbly foam. It left sticky patches of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled funky with phenolic notes. It had some yeasty notes with caramel sweetness.

T - Very phenolic flavor with funkiness and spicy hop bitterness. Good sweet caramel backbone.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is fantastic. It's my favorite beer of the year so far.

Tulip glass.

Pours a clear, light copper color with about three fingers of white, whispy foam which slowly deflate. Good retention and lots of lacing. Quite a bit of brett, vanilla, tart citrus fruit. Taste is not quite as impressive, and a little muddled: brett, moderate citrus and piney hops, finishing bone dry with moderate bitterness. More integration would go a long way. Or maybe the hops have just faded some and that's what I'm picking up; can't tell. Medium-light body and carbonation. Overall, interesting and quite drinkable. Pairs perfectly with spicy Indian or Asian food.

12oz bottle into a 3Floyds pint glass.

Great pour, as Rayon Vert sports a lingering taupe head that spatters webs of lacing along the inside of the glass. The body is a hazy, iced-tea orange with ample carbonation. Nice aroma, too, flaunting tangerine flesh and pungent, earthy Brett notes. Hops are floral and bright and the malts grainy with hints of bread dough.

Spicy hops and spicier yeast is the motif of Rayon Vert. Leafy, herbal hops combine with Belgian yeast esters and a kiss of funk from the Brettanomyces. The 7% is well hidden until the end, where a hit of warming alcohol flashes across the back of the palate. Mouthfeel is crisp and bubbly with a dry, medium body. Overall, a fairly tasty beer, but I was expecting a bit more from Green Flash given the ingredients to this beer. Perhaps after a few months of aging the Brett will really start to shine.

Poured into a Chimay goblet from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a nice slightly hazy rich copper color with some nice vibrant orange hints and some slight amber. There is a nice off-white head that is an inch tall and is quite dense with some bigger medium sized bubbles mixed in there. Active CO2 on the sides of the glass. The head sticks around for a nice long time.

Citrusy nose. Hints of orange and orange peel with some slight grapefruit notes. Hops are quite present up front. There is some nice Belgian yeast funk notes in the background there but the citrusy lemon/orange notes really shine to the forefront.

Flavor starts off fluffy like a BPA should. There is some quick barnyard and Brett funk up front followed by a rush of citrusy lemon and orange notes. Hopy grass notes are present as well. The middle portion also has some slight Belgian malt notes with some nice slight spice and some banana. This brew is pretty delicious. I could see how if Green Flash was Belgian they would brew this as their go-to beer. Very well balanced notes of Belgian with a citrusy West Coast hop profile. Refreshing. Fluffy and crisp mouthfeel.

Good offering from GF. I would purchase this more often along with my regular Hop Head REd fix. Very good flavors a nice balance and definitely a nice take on the BPA style.

Poured into a Duvel Tulip

A-Pours a hazy orange/amber with a very thick, dense head that tops off the tulip right to the rim. Head slowly dissipates leaving plenty of lacing in the glass and settles into a nice island of meringue like foam. A nice ring of foam remains as well.

S- Loads of phenols in the aroma as well as hops. Smells of band aid, bretty funk, yeast, hops, faint malt and some tropical fruit notes like pineapple in the background. As the beer warms more of the Belgian like aromas take over and the signature brett aromas begin to dominate. Band aid like phenols along with aromas of apricots, pineapple, mango are the dominate smells once the beer opens up all the way.

T- Slightly spicy in the beginning followed by the band aid like phenols swiftly filled in with slightly sweet malt and bitter hops. Dries a little in the finish but not overly so. Hop bitterness lingers as well as a subtle brett like flavor that I can’t quite pin down.

M- Medium bodied with a fair amount of prickly carbonation.

D- Enjoyable and one that I find is worth sipping on to see how the beer develops as it warms. Not a bad example of an American made Belgian pale ale. I’d be interested to see how Green Flash develops this in future batches. Recommended to those that like beers like Orval and Ommegang BPA.

Thanks to output01x for this beer.
Gave this one a normal pour, nothing special except the stop 75% of the way through to agitate the bottle. This got me two fingers of foamy white head that sat there for a few minutes. Body color is like apple cider, and the beer is cloudy with a good amount of suspended particles noticed. Head finally goes down to a thick foamy ring and topping. Thus I drink.

Strong pine and citrus hop smell. Digging deeper you find the belgian hints, a little funk, some yeast, banana and spices.

Banana was the first flavor I got off the bat. This transitioned to pine with a grapefruit and orange backbone. Yeast and cloves both intermingle and finish her off with some banana.

Medium bodied. Dry. Nothing to write home about on mouthfeel.

A decent entry in the hot Belgian IPA genre, but not up to the usual astonishing standards of Green Flash.

Pours a slightly dark golden with a fluffy white head and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and phenolic, with apricot and a wheaty edge. The flavor is clean and phenolic with apricot and raising and a light rye-toast feeling. There is a deep gasoline-like bitterness, like a good sprig of fresh epazote. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean.

Good, but not quite as good some others such as Flying Dog's Raging Bitch or New Belgium's Belgio.

Served from the bottle into a globed DFH glass

A- Poured a hazy medium amber color with fluffy head that leaves quite a bit of spotty lace

S- Hay funk, banana, clove, lemon, and bready notes. Very well balanced aroma

T- Big funky barnyard hay taste, lemon, bready and chalky yeasty notes. A very unique flavor profile, I can't quite put my finger on some of these flavors, but it is spicy, yeasty, and funky.

M- High prickly carbonation, kind of dry chalky quality

O- A very unique tasting beer. I like it, but not sure how often I would go reach for a beer like this. I heard this is very similar to Orval, which I had recently and did not like. I notice some similarities in aroma and a little in taste, but I actually like this beer and did not care for Orval at all. I don't get the overly bitterness and salty qualities I got with Orval.

Nice golden filtered body. Big frothy lacy white head.

Peppery spicy sweet Belgian aroma. Nice candi sugar citrus notes. Green apple Belgian yeast.

The spicy peppery clove Belgian spice blend couples with a nice floral slight citrus hop. The twang from the brett provides for a nice dry finish.

Light with good amounts of carbonation. Easy sipping flavorful complex brew. Could very easily be my new goto summer higher alcohol beer.

Poured into my tulip. Glowing pale orange color. You can see the CO2 escaping from the base of the glass. This one is capped with a huge merangue like head leaving behind sheets of belgian lace. Bready and slightly phenolic on the nose. Lightly hoppy in the citrus department too. The first sip lets you know the Brett is here. I love how citrus and Brett play together. Horse blanket, funk, smokey and phenolic. Yup its spicy. But wait there is more, bready malts. A little prickly and slightly over-carbed.
A very good interpretation of a Belgian Pale finished with Brett. A little over-carbed. Good Brett presence. I will be purchasing this again.

poured from bottle into a tulip. Pours a nice and rich orange/gold color with a nice frothy head

very complex with aromas of funk, oranges, florals, spice aromas and a bit of grains. Excellent depth on the aromas as well

medium/full bodied with very balanced flavors of spices, funk, oranges and a hint of various citrus flavors.

A quality belgian ale. The wild yeasts add good complexity along with a real good feel.

12 ounce bottle, w/o freshness indication.

Pours clouded medium apricot tinged amber, nice puffy off white head, dissolves to a fine film and leaves espectable spotty lace.

Nose is full of basil, pepper and Belgian yeasty fumes.

Flavorful and full of intrigue. More fresh basil, some barnyard, more pepper, light leather, layers of Brett charged phenolics and musty/funkyness, add a hint of smoke, a slight bite of ginned up alcohol, and some near dank hoppyness...yeah complex and tasty.

Nice Belgian inspired, San Diegoacized brew.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet, no date but fresh. This pours a nice amber color with a massive off white head which lasts for a while. The smell is pretty good, a little bubble gum, a hint of funk, lots of malts. The feel is medium lots of carbonation. The taste is good, a little funk, some barn yard, Belgian esters and a little bitterness, very good, I'm looking forward to seeing how this one changes.

12oz bottle into a Lost Abbey snifter.

A - The hyper carbonation of this beer yielded a very heady pour of a rocky off white head. The beer that rested underneath was a nice, slightly hazy dark orange. As the head receded it left behind some serious lacing.

S - The Aroma is definitely belgian with some nice brett characters, tropical fruits, citrus and a slight sour note and a nice hop presence. Looking forward to this.

T - The taste follows the nose rather closely with a fairly prevalent, earthy brett character and juicy tropical fruits. There is a nice hop bitterness. The finish has a slight band aid flavor to it. Fairly dry finish.

M - As mentioned, the carb levels are really high on this beer, but that also does an amazing job cutting the fairly heavy body.

O - This was a good beer that i am happy to see come on the scene from an american brewer. Its not as good as Damnation and has lots of room for growth, but its a great first atempt. I'll give this a shot after a few months again.

Poured in a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Reviewed live.

A- Fluffed up to a thick three finger whitish head that fades to spotty tufts of foam. Hazy orangish color and good carbonation.

S- Hoppy and some dark grains in the nose as well.

T- Sweet and gummy, some lighter hops but really gentle and sweet.

M- Medium bodied. Weak carbonation. No linger.

O- Not my favorite style, but drinkable and smooth.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with three fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with decent lacing.

S: Nice mix of sweet and funky aromas here. Sweet candy sugar, bubblegum, and pear notes stand out. Strong, funky barnyard aromas follow with a slight mustiness and sourness as well. Very nice aroma.

T: Similar to the aroma, there are some slight Belgian sweet notes at first with hints of light fruits and bubblegum. The Brett flavors come on strong with lots of funk and barnyard flavors. The finish is lightly bitter and bready. There are some slight medicinal notes on the aftertaste.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is slightly watery and could benefit from a lighter body and higher attenuation.

O: A pretty good beer, overall. There's a nice combination of sweet and funky, and it smells wonderful. I'd like the BPA aspects to shine through a bit more in the flavor and to have a drier body, but still it's a cheap alternative to the likes of Orval.

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

Pours a straw yellow, leaning toward golden color. Huge head on this one, slowly falling to half a finger, backed by a good amount of carbonation.

Up front in the nose is grapefruit, followed by oak, peppercorn, white lilies, and tarragon. A bit of a winey aroma, and maybe a bit of those earthy Belgian-esque notes.

The flavor here is interesting. It is a pale ale, indeed, with decent hop notes and a lingering citrus taste. But, while the Belgian element isn't too prominent, it is there, making this pale a bit more dynamic. Hints of toasted bread, oranges, clove, white grapes, and green peppercorn. With each sip, the Belgian notes grow a bit stronger, as do the hoppy bitterness of the brew.

On the palate this one is a bit astringent and bitter. Though, that is not to say it is not palatable--because it is. The astringency of the beer on the tongue lingers, but the flavor of the beer does not suffer as a result here.

Overall, an interesting take on what seems to be an increasingly popular style for breweries to take on. I like it because it takes the pale ale to different level...not necessarily a better level, just a place that offers some new flavors from a classic style. Green Flash does a pretty good job with it here.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Golden tan/brown, monster 3+ inch creamy, foamy head. Tons of lacing.

Smell - West coast ipa hop kick. Belgian yeast, plenty of herb and spices. Grapefruit, lemon and some pepper really make this interesting.

Taste - Nice belgian spices, malty and west coast sytle hops are the main flavor of this beer. Grainy aftertaste and floral, yet smooth and flavorful. Alcohol isnt really present, nor is this beer overly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, lots of flavor and easy to drink. Tounge gets alot of malts, spices, hops and sugars. Palette gets remaining malts and hops, and a little hop bitterness. Aftertaste is dry and sweet.

Overall - Really tasty and easy to enjoy. Not too sweet, not to bitter, and not too strong. Nice twist of the west coat hops to make this different from the rest. I find this really enjoyable and not as expensive as some of the other green flash brews. Will drink this oen again for sure.

A - Pours rich gold in color with reddish hues in the light; has a big three finger head with moderate retention and some splotchy lace left on the glass.

S - Aroma is full of many subtle notes and not really very intense. Very herbal, hops, malt and yeast are all there with noticeable funk. As it warms more fruit comes out, grapefruit, lemon and some tropical notes.

T - Sweet malt and funk upfront and then a little burst of hops takes over the palate, as it fades your left with funky tart and bitterness. Herbal and spicy with more of a lemon rind bitterness.

M - Super smooth and balanced, great feel overall.

O - This is a really well balanced and very enjoyable offering from Green Flash. I would really like to see how this one continues to develop over time.

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

Bright glowing hazy blend of orange and yellow amber. Bubbly copper masterpiece. I believe it is bottle fermented. The head jumps out of the beer creating a large foamy 1 finger head with great lacing.

I immediately smell tart cherries and piney hops. This smells like an American IPA brewed like a Wild Ale. This is a really unique beer. I get funky sour notes, floral potpurri and perfume. Mild esters. Secondary aromas of juicy tangerine and sugar malts cling to wild yeast.

The taste is bitter, then sweet, it gets funky and then drys out. I like the variety of phases that this beer goes through. After a long drinking session it leaves a cherry cola sour taste. It could use more hop aroma. I get lemon rind, honey dew melon. resinous and grassy hops like a SN Torpedo IPA. malts are candied but distant.

The mouthfeel is clean San Diego style. Super bright and flavorful a little heavy on the hops side. The wild flavors could be experiemented with.

I enjoyed this ale a lot. It's very well executed and a delight to sip. I would like to get a few more bottles to see how the Wild yeast vary.

Pours a deep golden color with some amber hightlights; a bit hazy. The white head is big, frothy and rocky. The head slowly settles into a chunky cap.

The aroma is floral and hoppy. The is some brightness from the malt and yeast; quite perfumey and floral. Some lemony/champagne notes. Their is a strong citrus hop aroma, mainly grapefruit. There are some tropical fruit notes as well. Aroma reminds me of a AIPA. Could use some more belgian yeast characteristics.

The taste is sweet, candi sugar sweet. The malt is light and dry. Some perfumey notes from the yeast. Some tart notes, lemon and white wine. The hops work well with the rest of the beer. Again, mainly grapefruit but also some tropical fruit notes. Definitely sides on an AIPA style.

The feel is moderate with fizzy carbonation. Definitely sweet on the palate but the hops balances every thing out. Drinks very well.

A very flavorful beer; nice hop profile. It could use more of a belgian yeast profile.

Rayon Vert pours a lightly hazed copper. Things are topped off by a healthy two fingers of bone white head. Head has some staying power. Eventually settles to a ring. Plenty of sticky lace is left in its wake.

The aroma packs an interesting punch. Its a not to typical Belgian nose, but that is to its advantage. Very herbal upfront. Mint and floral notes stand out strong. Some mild lemon notes hit next. A light brett quality shows up. Brett becomes stronger as the beer warms, taking on a faintly barnyard aroma. Some faintly medicinal spice notes rounds things out.

There is some definite funk on the palate. Earthy, faintly barnyard-y brett hits upfront.. The lemon in the nose is stronger on the palate, lending a bit of a tartness. A healthy herbal bitterness takes hold mid palate. Herbal mint notes mix with tart lemons. The finish is lightly tart with a lingering floral quality.

Rayon Vert is light bodied with an effervescent carbonation.

Green Flash have said they spent four years developing this brew. Their efforts have paid off. This a great Belgian style ale. Light and refreshing with a good bit of heft. Their love of hops shines with out overpowering things. The brett adds just enough funk with out over powering. Reminds me of Orval in a way. It will be interesting to see how the brett changes and evolves this beer overtime. As is, Rayon Vert is one heck of tasty quaff. Props to Green Flash for doing Belgian beer right.

A: The beer pours a middy golden brown with a white head. This beer has a HUGE head on it. It slowly fades and looks like the head of a coke float. There is a lot of lace left on the glass. A very nice looking beer

S: This beer has a strong basil and spices scent to it with also a bit of hops. It honestly almost smells like a pasta I have had once at La Madeline, very nice.

T: Again I am getting the basil and spices that I got in the smell. The taste has a decent amount of hops which give it a nice piney taste. It tastes too much like pizza for my tasting though. The taste

M: There is almost no crispness to this beer at all. It is beyond smooth and is very easy to drink.

O: I know I talked a lot about italian food in my review, but this beer tastes so much like a pizza or pasta. I wish it was toned down a little bit in the taste, but everything else in the beer is very awesome. Maybe I will age the other ones and see what this beer does with time.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Stone Cali-belgique tulip.

A - pours a slightly hazy light orange with 4.5 finger off white, rocky head.

S - smells delic! Some brett, sourness, juicy/citrus hops, alcohol

T - a little of a letdown from the aroma. Lots of brett character with a subdued hop flavor. Not balances at all. Some grainyness tasted with some alcohol present. Good old band aid on the back end. Finished fairly dry but has a slight off aftertaste i cant place.

M - slick, deceivingly thicker than expected, the carb hides this a tad

D - somewhat low. The unbalanced brett makes it a little hard for me to have more than two

Overall, not bad, but room for improvement. It has bonus points for the aroma.

Rayon Vert is bottle-conditioned. 12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a transparent dark golden, huge frosty white head that doesn't go anywhere; great lacing. Pour slow. Phenomenal looking beer. The aromas are great.. lots of cherry and belgian funk. The hops are definitely present, but not in your face. Tastes great with lots of cherry, apricot, peach, pepper, and yeast. Very bitter, but in a subtle way.. great balance. Mouthfeel is smooth, spritzy, creamy. Extremely easy to drink. Wow, this is a winner.

This is probably the best BPA I've had. Pure winner from Green Flash. Try this stuff!
