Just over the fold there they reviewed two beers from my new neighborhood brewery, Hardywood Park. Their gingerbread stout got a 100, pretty crazy considering the brewery is only like six months old. Stuff is so delicious, easily my favorite beer, drank SO MUCH of it this winter.

If you're ever in Brussels, there's an amazing place called the Beer Temple, just behind the Grand Place. Bought a lot of Delirium Tremens / Delirium Nocturnum there this morning.

I know i'm in the minority but I really hated Rayon Vert. I thought it tasted like laundry soap and had a mouthfeel that was far too much like champagne for me. I did cellar one of the bottles to see what will develop over the next year.

I can't explain it but I have this taste aversion to american style belgians. I've tried a half dozen Belgian IPAs that are middling at best. The thing is this doesn't carry over to Belgians themselves as I'll drink the hell out of whatever I have access to around here which is usually just Chimays, Duvel, Nostradomus and a few others.

What is it about the Rayon Vert that you guys like?

ive only had it a couple times, but have enjoyed it

that being said, i dont know that id call it a great beer (of the green flash outings ive had w coast ipa, double stout and palate wrecker are all superior)

to me its mostly a pale, but has some subtle brett stuff going on that lends a nice complexity

i get lemon, grass and funk out of it, find it easy drinking with a nice finish

i think it is a very polarizing beer actually - my girlfriend has great taste in beers, likes a ton of the same stuff as me including other green flash stuff, but cannot stand rayon vert and also complains of the "soapy" taste. do you like other brett-forward beers? i think it's very similar to orval (prob because of the brett), which i love but rarely get because of the price point...and being able to get something so similar for $9/4pk is awesome.

like bingo said i get a lot of lemon, grass, funk, some bubblegum...great mouthfeel too i think - not too thin or thick, with a nice sparkly carbonation

i prefer Ommegang BPA to Rayon Vert.
but yeah Palate Wrecker is amazing... had it alongside Sierra Nevada Hoptimum, and preferred the Palate Wrecker significantly.
the only Green Flash beer i wasn't impressed with was Hop Head Red, but i probably had an old bottle.

i didn't mean to compare other green flash stuff. their WCIPA and Double Stout are top notch. But i have tried Le Freak and it falls into the same trap as other Belgian IPAs - seems like a paler version of each style. I either want an IPA or a Belgian, not some half breed.

Anyway, I need to keep exploring the world of brett. I'm not sold on it yet but I also think it can be aquired. I've got another Belgian abbey style ale right now that's about a year old and i'll break it out soon.

that is my favorite style. my old drummer brewed pony kegs of a special belgian blonde IPA we'd bring to shows. it was 8%ish and too drinkable.

Are we talking Belgian IPAs from Belgium or Belgian IPAs that are American IPAs with Belgian yeast? I like Le Freak and Cali-Belgique, but I don't really dig the Houblon Chouffe stuff. Other people I know love that stuff though.
