IlGagario (111) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 2, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 On tap. Colore verde vetrato. Schiuma alta, bianca, soapy abbastanza fitta. Olfatto maltato con nota citrica, tè verde e uva. Carbonazione flat e vinosa. Aroma citrico, fieno ed erba fresca con note terrose dolci, tè verde, nota vinosa pungente, ortaggi (spinaci freschi), aceto bianco, lontano limone e lime spasso. Gusto acido dolce, via via ad incresparsi, leggermente allappante. Finale dolce acetico a balsamizzarsi, di erba dolce e fieno umido, abbastanza breve e pulito, che si secca piacevolmente. Corpo da leggero a medio, trama vinosa, alcool ben coperto. Scorrevolezza lenta data dalle astringenze, da meditazione. Più saison che belgian strong, una birra singolare ma anche confusa, comunque più gradevole di quanto pensassi. Un po’ molle. --- RIBEVUTA IN BOTTIGLIA il 18/3/2016: Colore verde chiaro brillante, come di passata di verdura, lattico e impenetrabile. Bella testa bianca, densa da cremosa a pannosa, di ottima persistenza. Olfatto citrico di limone, spinaci e spezie. Carbonazione media, alquanto attiva. Buon aroma di tè verde, amaro citrico e scorzoso di limone, vegetale di spinaci, con chiusura farmhouse pienamente umida, molto intrigante e convincente. Gusto dolce da leggero a medio, poi amaro leggermente aspro, davvero ottimo. Corpo soffice e gentile, mouthfeel vivo e piacevolmente pungente. Trama da watery ad appena lattica, carbonata e con finale teinato. Una saison ruspante, solida nei suoi elementi, giocosa e al tempo stesso gentile. Rivedo in positivo il mio precedente giudizio, portando l’aroma da 6 a 7, il gusto da 5 a 7 e l’overall da 13 a 15.

Bottle at the barrel emptying night. Pours bright green, which was a shock. Green tea and saison yeast noise, light pepper. Taste is tannins, more green tea, sharp zing on the finish. Quite unique.

AdamChandler (4466) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2016
750ml Shelton bottle. Looks like puke green with a small head. Cork didn’t really come out easily. Smells nice. Lemons, cheese, bark, wheat and spice. Definite green tea taste. This has to be like 50% tea with straight up lemon juice. Very weak oily mouthfeel. It’s pretty strange. However, I’m going to finish the bottle.

Mjp12 (1361) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Totally unique beer, the colour is amazing. There is an almost Brett hint to the aroma, and the finish is very dry. But the green colour dominates everything! Try it

Johnstledger8 (671) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light green with a mostly fading off white bubbly head. Aroma is of herbs, vegetables, lime, apple, jelly beans. Taste is of lime, kiwi, grassy, pine, lemon, green tea, herbal, wheat spice on the finish, some pepper. Light oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

gegwilson (3033) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle shared with Pix in Bredog Sheffield. Pours a lurid green colour with a frothy white head. Herbal citrus aroma with feshly cut grass and yeast. The taste is almost as odd as it looks. Strongly herbal with light citrus and a very strongly bitter herbal finish with a grassy aftertaste. Interesting, but quite hard work.

apickles (434) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle in Brewdog in Sheffield. Pours green but clear with a small off white head. Smells warm if that is possible! Herbal vinegar a bit sweet and sour. Quite tart with a not very nice lingering bitter aftertaste however quite creamy and some green tea coming through in the flavour. Ok.

Hikeg (246) - - JAN 8, 2016
Strange green body with medium frothy head, decent lacing. Jellybeans, pears, sweat, barnyard, tea(!), soap maybe even banana. Medium sweetness, medium bitter, rather dry wooden and astringent finish. Medium body, lively carbonation. Hides the 8% well. Kinda strange brew, even for Fantome.

ruigo (2125) - PORTUGAL - DEC 14, 2015
75cl bottle. Hazy light green colour with a thin white head. Grassy, barnyard, citric and earthy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is grassy, green tea with a dry and bitter finish. Overall, a nice drinkable beer but a bit dull.

Tognetta (675) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 1, 2015
Esverdeada escura, turva. Espuma verde claro de boa formação e persistência, curiosa mas não muito atraente. Aroma adocicado lembra a maçã verde, cítrica, capim, chá. Paladar novamente adocicado de média intensidade, álcool presente, amargor lupulado. Corpo médio influenciado principalmente pelo teor alcoólico, carbonatação média. Aftertaste prevalece o sabor de chá e dulçor, persistente no paladar. Em geral uma boa e curiosa cerveja, mas nada espetacular.
