sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2011
75cl bottle, corked, BB 01-2013. Couleur verdâtre, col épais blanc. Sur le fin, la levure verse un vert profond allant sur un bleu curaçao. Arôme est fort en agrumes, note de levure fermentée et des notes de poudre de thé vert. Assez intéressant que en arrivant sur la fin, la levure rajoute une vrai bonne dose de thé. L’arôme du thé vert matcha va dans le sens du thé en paquet frais tout en restant subtile vis à vis des agrumes qui se dégagent aussi. Bière au palais unique de par son profile de thé vert/bourgeon qui reste en retrait et développe une belle dimension une fois l’incorporation de la levure sur le fond. Cela n’en retire pas les qualités de la bière qui autrement offre un très beau profile houblonné rappelant le citron et le pamplemousse. Cela rajoute une belle amertume qui se conjugue avec un palais pétillant avec une petite note épicée. Thé vert procure un caractère agréable, fleuri, poudreux, sec au palais avec un profile de feuille de thé.

Nose is nice. Dusty fruity yeast, green tea notes. Smells really good! Nice and fruity, dusty, some hay, cereal grain notes, nice green tea as well. Super cool interesting stuff. Well carbonated, very smooth.

Bottle. Lime green beer with a big whitish head. Slight skuny aroma with yeast, earth, and malt. Tart and malt flavor with fruitiness, yeast, and earth. Medium bodied. Tart and frutiiness lingers with malt, yeast, light spice, and earth.

(750ml bottle best by Jan ’13 thanks to bu11zeye) glowing green pour, big frothy lasting head and excellent lacing. Nose is funky, tart apple, green tea and cherry. Taste is very herbal, green tea, tart, raspberries. Drinkable too!

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: I don’t know how to rate the appearance on this one. It’s frigging radioactive green! Only Dany would make a saison like this. That said, there is a moderate sized off-white head and stray lacing left in the glass. S: One of the more fruity Fantome’s I’ve had the pleasure to drink. Generic soft citrus and a little sour apple. Earthy green tea and delicate spices. T: Green tea / herbal notes are more prominent in the flavor than in the nose. A little lemon, lime and earthy-green apple. Light must and funk. M: Smooth, medium bodied. Gentle but adequate carbonation. Lingering herbal finish. Would be a tad better if the finish was drier. O: An exceptional Fantome-among their best.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to GRG1313. Pours with a hazed GREEN body with a white head. Aromas are interesting, green tea, vegital, malty, bready, sweet, doshi/umami, seaweed. Flavors show a light acidity, grainy, sweet, bready, green tea, pils malt, funk and phenols. Lively bubbles and quite dry.

Draft at Fantôme, thanks Dany for changing the keg so we could try this. Pours quite hazy, chartreuse in color, with a giant bright white head. Interesting nose for sure, mineral, light grapefruit and banana, green tea undertones throughout. The draft was much less funky than the bottle and had more yeast esters as well. Lively carbonation and mouthfeel that had creamy body. Sweet esters with almost a citrus cotton candy like flavor, green tea noticeable, but not over the top, mineral notes mid palate with some peppery notes as well. Was expecting to maybe get some vegetal notes from the spinach used to get the color, but that wasn’t the case. What a cool take on a saison and really glad to try it on draft as it was quite different than the bottle. Serious grooving!

LSUPT (2) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 18, 2011 does not count
Medium yellow hue with a slight green tint. Crazy yellow green like a plant with a nitrogen deficiency towards the end of the bottle with some green flecks of sediment. Hard pour yields a quarter inch head Sweet grass flowers honey green tea and a green vegetable scent that I can’t put a finger on. Sour funky and bitter. Flavor is extremely complex. Big lemon lime flavor, actually quite enjoyable, and green tea mostly. Mouthfeel is a mazing. Extremely light and smooth with very low carbonation that is hard to describe. Extremely drinkable.
