Green Flash Brewing Co. (San Diego, California) recently announced that Rayon Vert is officially headed back to shelves with a new name: Cellar 3 – Baroque Belgique.
After being temporarily discontinued in 2014, Rayon Vert – Green Flash Brewing’s Belgian-style Pale Ale conditioned with Brettanomyces – has finally returned under a new name, with a new look and in new packaging. Now a Cellar 3 offering dubbed Baroque Belgique, the foundation for this “bold and complex” Belgian Pale Ale has been laid with herbal hops and traditional malts. The beer is then bottle conditioned with fresh ale yeast and Brettanomyces to create a funk-filled experience adorned with “a delightfully bright effervescence, dryness, and continuously evolving character.” Green Flash declares that if they were “founded in historical Belgium, Baroque Belgique would have been [their] flagship brew.”
Baroque Belgique is available now as a year-round, Cellar 3 offering. Packaged in cork finished champagne style 750ml bottles, you can find this brew at craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants in Alabama, Florida and throughout Green Flash Brewing Co.’s full distribution area. Keep an eye out for Baroque Belgique as it hits shelves this holiday season because this newly-named old favorite will make a wonderful pairing for any of the turkey dinners in your near future. Prost!
