Beer Review: GREEN FLASH RAYON VERT

The Rayon Vert, as it cascades into the glass, presents itself as a cloudy amber gold, adorned with a substantial foamy white head that lingers, promising a robust visual experience.

Aroma:

Engaging the olfactory senses, the bouquet is a bold interplay of pungent pineapple brett, grapefruit, and an intriguing nod to grandma’s house—perfumy and layered with biscuity malt. The aromatic profile sets an expectation for a sensory journey.

Taste:

Embarking on the tasting expedition, the beer unveils a dry pale malt foundation, dominated by an assertive brett presence that commands attention. The grapefruit hops make a grand entrance, contributing to a finish that is both dry and bitter, with a lingering bretty character that leaves a lasting impression.

Mouthfeel:

In terms of mouthfeel, Rayon Vert boasts a full-bodied nature, accompanied by a lively carbonation that imparts a spicy kick. The occasional juiciness adds a dynamic element to the overall drinking experience.

Overall:

In the grand scheme of craft brews, the Green Flash Rayon Vert emerges as nothing short of amazing. Its dry, spicy, and hoppy characteristics blend seamlessly, creating an aromatic symphony that captivates the senses. At the time of this evaluation, the execution is commendable. Green Flash’s distinctive hopping technique positions this beer at the pinnacle of attempts in the bretty pale/bretty IPA realm. While the brewery hints at the beer’s potential to evolve over time, personal experience suggests it may be a challenge to resist savoring this masterpiece for an extended duration.
