Garlic_of_Doom (558) - SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2015
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!

Erzengel (5363) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before Jan 13. Spannendes grünes Bier. Riecht mehrt nach Waldmeister als nach grünem Tee. Frisch-säuerlich, spannend-säuerliche Pferdedecke, frisch-säuerlicher Waldmeister. Nett.

SlackerMads (2062) - DENMARK - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Hazy/murky lime green with a medium sized green tinted white head. Green is a fine colour and I haven’t had a green beer since Thisted Bryghus made one with artificial colouring in the good old ’90s. The nose is fruity saison as is the flavour pretty much; well ripe apple and pear, honey, dusty, damp hay, grass. It has a touch of seaweed, mint and tea like bitterness as well. Fine balance, feels a little bit heavy and could benefit from slightly higher carbonation, but still drinks well for the abv.

RexTalionis (2985) - FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle. Green kind of color, whitish head. Sweet green tea leafs, wild strawberry and funky notes in aroma. Some exotic fruits too, maybe some pear as well. Some spicy notes in taste, funkyness and lemon with green tea on the side too. Interesting one, kind of liked it. Citrus sour fruity finish. Thirstquenching material.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 23, 2015
75cl bottle from MOMH. Pours bright green, little to no head. Little carbonation. Aroma is enticing mix of lime, tropical fruit and jasmine. Flavour is a mash-up of banana, guava, mango, some cloves, mixed with green tea puckering astringency, finishes super-dry and cheek-sucking astringency. Very hard to drink, we gave up halfway through.

mile (3404) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle. Light green, hazy, no head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish aroma, light fruitiness and some citrus with light sourness, faint spiciness (pepper), light herbal hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness and light citrus with light sourness, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, faint fruitiness, light citrus and light - some sourness, light - some sharp spiciness, light herbal hoppyness. Nice aroma. Flavor could use something to balance citrus and sourness. BTW, appearance (no head and hazy green) is quite horrible.

MAFountain (19) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2015
The nose is just unreal, Green Tea indeed. A little herbal, a little bit of sweetness within the aroma as well. A slight haziness to the green body. The beer is green for sure. A beautiful green at that. Minimal head for the style of beer. Lightly Sweet. Crisp, and lively on the tongue. I would call it medium bodied to possibly light. It has a long finish. Overall, Kudos to Fantome for this unique beer. I’ve had the original batch, and this review is in regards to the recent batch. I’ve sought it out multiple times, and will most likely try to acquire more.

Bomber. Thanks to mike12da. Small yeasty nose, with powdery cake mix. Very unusual blue-green color (my pour was from the final third of the bottle; the first pours were much lighter green). Artificial peach initial, green tea harshness as bittering, and small apple juice notes. Bitterness stretches on for some time. Thin body. Unusual mix of flavors. Kinda on the edge of pleasant.
