UPDATED: AUG 1, 2015 An odd beer. Has green sediments, dosn’t look like something to drink. White head. Aroma of tea, acid, sugars. Flavor is moderate sweet and finish light bitter. Creamy texture and soft carbonation. Rerate. Accept the greeen colour and noticed the nice belgian hops. Good beer.

I shared a bottle with Douglas Miller and Marcus Siu. A- Mountain Dew? My bottle was neon green… I have read different descriptions of the color, but I could have told someone this was MNT DEW, and they would have believed me. A small head that quickly went away and no there was lacing to speak of. S- Smelled rather funky and yeasty, smells funkier than it tastes. There are hints of Granny Smith apple and lemon. T- Unique! Sweet n Sour; I also picked up a slight earthy flavor which I assumed was the alleged addition of spinach. There is a hint of green tea, but it came in more as it warmed. Lambic qualities in this saison... M- Highly carbonated with a light foamy body. The high carbonation was a present addition to this brew, creating a nice foamy mouth feel. The mouth feel matches the look. O- The most unusual brew I have ever had. If you find this, it is a no brainer to pick one up. This brew is a great rarity and an example of why I will always pick up a new Fantôme. Serving type: bottle

pours green with a white head. Looks like pea juice. Floral aroma with a bit of perfume. Flavor is fruity and pineapple with a tropical tart finish.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle @ jews brews bbqs. The color is astounding, the green is total matcha. Aroma of lime zest, mellow like key lime. The flavors have some basil, and the matcha is predominant but mellow. It blends well with the underlying funk, which is fun and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
In short: A herbal minty green beer of some kind. A strange experiment that is surprisingly sessinnable. Interesting to say the least.
How: Bottle 750ml, capped & corked. Consumed approximately 6 months after the beer release
The look: A lovely cloudy lime-like green body topped by a small beige head
In long: The unusual aromatic nose is a bit like walking in a public bathroom filled with flowers and fresh green tea. No kidding, I must have smelled the beer for 5 minutes before writing the above. There is definitely a urine component to this aroma and the green tea comes out with a fish-like character. It might sound gross but it is not, really not. The farmhouse Fantome yeast signature doesn’t comes through in the aroma. This is a totally unusual aroma and everybody will feel it in a different way. Taste is just as strange. Farmhouse character comes out a bit more in the taste. Lots of chewy bready malts. I’m a heavy drinker of green tea, at least 5 cups a day at work, and I never buy the same kind twice. Knowing that the beer uses green tea I can relate it to some of the green tea I have had in the past but if it wasn’t for the color and description of the beer I would have described its green tea flavor as some kind of fresh minty herbs dipped in lime. I don’t know how to describe this beer, really. But what’s important is that drinking a full 750ml was so pleasant that I would have opened another had I had another bottle. This is more than just a weird different beer, this is a good fun weird different beer. That beer was as peculiar as a man with a wooden leg and a real foot.

Tasted on 1/7/12 from a capped and corked 750mL bottle, thank you to Ryan. Pours cloudy Absinthe green with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace, leaving thin residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is fairly straightforward, classic saison, with light malt, spicy yeast, and an added sweet marzipan note. The flavor is lightly sweet lemon green tea up front, moving to light marshmallow and marzipan malt, and more traditional spicy saison yeast. The body is fairly full with just above average carbonation and a long lightly tart, marzipan, and lightly spicy yeast finish.

TheBeerGod (5870) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle - 750mL corked and crowned. First things first - this has a slight greenish hue but nothing like the picture. Greenish gold bodied with a short off-white head (only the faintest green to it). Aroma is that of funky yeast, ripe fruits, grains, tea and leather. Some candied fruit and sweet malt as well. Taste is funky yeast atop tart and overripe fruits with sweet malt, tea, tea leaves, leather, flowers and soft herbal notes. Body is medium with a mild dryness and a strong, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more yeast notes, flowers, leather, tea, tart fruits, sweet malt, herbs and light candyish notes.
