Appearance: GREEN? Awesome. Hazy, thick green pour the color of pea soup, with a thick just-off-white head that slowly shrinks to a thick cap. Aroma: green apples over a pleasant saison barnyard funk, hints of tart raspberry and citrus, and some herbal spices as well. Taste: strong traditional saison flavors of funk, yeast and spice with some almost wheaty notes, with prevalent sweet-tart green apple notes overlaid, maybe some kiwi, ginger and green tea? Finish: surprisingly clean, slightly sweet and wheaty, and drying quickly. Notes: Seemed like nothing so much as a traditional saison brewed with loads of green apples. After sharing the bottle with a friend, we agreed it felt as if we’d just finished a green apple jolly rancher candy. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy lime green color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy green tea, dry sweet basil and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very complex good brew.

75cl courtesy of sebletitje, thanks man! It pours pickle brine green with thin white head. The muted aroma has blunted notes of tart citrus and faint earthiness and little else. The taste begins with a mix of tartness, some lime – that may just be my impression of some acidity in the face of a green hued beer, faint sweetness, a mild level of yeasty spiciness and some more lime like tart acidity. The level of acidity isn’t too strong and I’m able to quaff down this beer without too much effort.

750ml . Lime green pour with a significant head. The coolest looking beer i’ve ever had. Vegetable, tea, funk, and sour apple. A fair amt of sour to this one. Nit great but unique and worth a try for sure.

Pours a nice pale greenish color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Bottle … Fantômepalooza 2011… Ok, so it’s not as neon green as the picture to the left, but it is a murky, key-lime ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is dusty and musty with strong, herbal, green tea notes. Medium to full-bodied and milky with active carbonation. The flavor is lightly acidic and herbal. Moderately sweet. Finishes mildly tart and lightly bittersweet. Thanks to Beerlando for sharing this beauty!

Pours a fluorescent slime green color that’s reminiscent of ecto cooler with a thin white head that quickly fades not a thin ring. Minimal lacing. Very earthy and funky aroma with lots of barnyard must/horsey notes along with some earthy oak and a mineral/vegetal tea leaf presence. The green tea compliments the funky yeast very well, resulting in a very unique aroma. Light bodied with a ton of earthy funk and green tea flavor. Not sour but musty and earthy with hints of straw, wet hay and grass and funky bugs. This is nicely complimented by the herbal/mineral green tea presence, creating a very odd, yet very flavorful, funky beer. Unlike anything I’ve had before.
