4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy green at the start but by the end pours a neon green Echto Cooler/Slimmer color. Slight head but dissipates. Aroma is horse blanket, green tea, sweetness and some cherry. Taste is that of how cow manure smells. Slight sour, 3 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being super sour. Sweetness and green tea still come into play. Overall, a very nice and fun beer.

Pours bright Irish green with a big pale green head. Smell is woodruff and spice -herbal. Taste is herbal, woodruff, dry bitterness. A bit perfumey and grassy with mint on the very backend. Nicely carbonated with light body. A very interesting beer for sure.

kiwi dishwasher soap green head (wtf!!). slight green haze, but not fluorescent (we hoped it would be). very strange chemical smell, somewhat musty and unpleasant, grassy. very (bile) bitter, slight sour taste and fermented concentrated green tea. okay so we expected something special, but this is beyond it .. by a long stretch, but a surprise it was definitely!bottle 75cl / notes from backlog

Poured from a 750ml bottle
Aroma: lactobacillus, green apple, hay, earthy, herbal
Taste: hay, earthy, sour/tart, green apple
Overall: I loved this beer, this rating was from July of 2011 and since then I have tried this beer three more times and two of the three times the beer was pure cheese and it got Footbalmed. I do not have any notes from these other tastings so I did not change my first rating.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smak och doft av krusbär, gräs, omogna äpplen. Frisk och syrlig med en liten och torr beska som påminner om beskan från grönt te.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl, family tasting. - this looks as natural as a space green saison can pour: cloudy, almost fluorescent green with a pourous soapy head. Nose is slightly sour, but betraying none of the herbs/spices used in the mix. Hard to taste the green tea that was used supposedly, as its bitterness collides/complements the saison-ish hop bitterness. Dry as a saison, betrays none of its 8ABV and almost drinks like a wit. The herbal component reminds me rather of Berliner Weisse mit Waldmeister Schuss, without the syrupy quality and a rather pleasant natural sourness - could on of the spices used be Waldmeister/woodruff? - tasted less impressive than it looked to some at the table, but I am giving Fantome extra points for creating a beer that is far more drinkable than it looks and for sheer daring.

Awesome color. It is a nice herbal and dry farmhouse ale. The green tea is pronounced very nicely.
