3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle shared in a tulip. Initially disappointed with the lack of green - the pigment is located in the sediment. Once the sediment is poured in you are looking at thick almost neon green with a nice white head. Maybe not the most appetizing look but I can only give it full marks for the novelty. Aroma is typical saison notes (hay, earthy) with lots of fruitiness. Taste is citrusy notes (mostly lime) almost no bitterness and just the right level of sweetness. Very, very refreshing (glad I waited for the hottest day of the year so far to open this one). I would definitely buy this again because it is so unique and I can think of nothing better for the scorching summer (I don’t like wit beers). The ABV is almost non-existent. You would never guess this is 8%. Too easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bier Tempel. I often smile to myself at the chaps in such shops frantically checking their phones for Ratebeer scores or equivalent. Content in my ’superior knowledge’ I’m normally happy to wing it...then I get home and discover my carefully sourced Fantome is green. Very green. I mean seriously, it looks more like a cocktail from the Mos Eisley cantina than a beer! Once you get beyond the green colour it’s actually quite interesting. Initially quite standard saison if you keep your eyes shut, some heavy Fantome yeast, clean, quenching, little bit of bitterness, there’s a definite lime taste, then the green tea hits towards the end with that weird end of drink palate heaviness I find from green tea related products. Reminds me a bit of the Japanse green tea cafe in Kyoto! I’d put this beer in the very interesting and good but slightly weird category.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours cloudy and greenish with an average off-white head. Aroma of yeast, a little funk, citrussy notes, some spice and herbal tea. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium bodiedd, oily texture and lively carbonation. Quite special, crisp and very nice in its own way. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Green (green tea is not usually that green) with a small nearly white head that doesn’t last that well. Aroma of green tea, spices, limes, jubes. Nothing that really suggested sour, but it is a bit. Balanced with jube-like sweetness. Sharp Kiwi fruit? Tea is less obvious in the taste. Wouldn’t guess it’s as strong as 8%. Dry and moderately bitter at the end with some odd but pleasant herbal things and lime cordial.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl bottle.
Looks like murky algae pond water, a small off white head.
Aroma is sweet and nothing like any beer aroma before; "Ahlgrens bilar", "Hugoläsk", cheap gummy candy and ripe fruit, mint, quite refreshing, perhaps a wee bit green tea at the end.
Taste is slightly tart, refreshing with some citrus, mint, herbal spicyness, sugary sweetness (candi sugar?) and belgian yest notes.
Medium body and carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Very, very interesting and refreshing beer. Would def. seek out again!
