Encore une magnifique horreur, hormis la couleur verte, tout juste rigolotte, cette bière à un goût de pisse mémé... Si j’ai envie de tisane je bois une tisane, pas une bière...

jaghana (4074) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle 33cl a clear green beer with good head. Nose is intense on herbal, tea and mint notes. Aroma is on sweetish wet herb notes, body is on mint, finish has the bitterness of a too infused tea and wet herb notes with again a sweet notes that seems to be aspartame. Not a great stuff anyway.

24/VII/13 - 33cl bottle @ my parents’ place - BB: XI/13 (2013-662) Thanks to my parents for the bottle!

Clear green to kaki beer, fizzy white head, unstable, dissipates immediately. Aroma: very sweet, sugary, bit metallic, minty, pretty weird, herbal. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: bit sugary start, lemon peel, herbal, unpleasant bitterness. Aftertaste: herbal, spicy, bitter, metallic, bit minty. Yuk.

goozen (3038) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy green coloured brew with taste of thyme, thea, peppermint and lemon. Kind a refreshing but the combination of flavors and aromas is not for me.

Slight haze on this green beer!!! Tidy white head. Light crispy palate, semi dry. Shandy! Tastes a little like a shandy and a pleasant one at that but the herby flavours from the liqueur drag that notion away. Crisp finish. Unusual beer but quite drinkable!

erickok (3740) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 7, 2012
Greenish blond, very clear with small white soapy lace. Very herbal and spices, tea and little hops and malts. Medium bitter, herbal taste. Sort or refreshing but all those spices and herbal tea kind of notes are not for me. (Bottle drank at Brewberry)

TBone (12941) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2012
Bottled 330ml (BZ, BB 06/2012)
Clear "poison green" color, small white head. Strong aroma of mint, same artifical mint than in mint ice cream, also pepperminty. Light bodied. Flavor is not so minty, hints of peppermint candy, bubblegum and vegetables. Quite awful "beer". The worst idea for years I’ve rated.

EithCubes (5051) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle by 06/12. Nose radiates herbality, there’s a relatively sticky malt there, too, but the various herb and spice tones cobbled together, with mint at the fore (I’m imagining chocolate chips it’s so strong), still win out. Color is a few shades darker than Ecto Cooler green, lots of carbonation and a green-tinged off-white head. From the get go this is weird, and probably going to get weirder. Taste is sweet but not strongly so, there’s a rasping scratch cloven to the carbonation, strong herbal tones otherwise. I could see some people getting turned off quickly if they associate this with medicine, but I’m left with lingering memories of Shamrock Shakes, which I haven’t had in close to fifteen years. Medium body and a planty aftertaste. Really not bad at all, and worth a shot!
