jd543 (401) - SCOTLAND - OCT 13, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Bright green with a very pale green (almost white) head. Lots of sherbet, spices, can definately smell the green tea. Quite sweet with a light sour and bitter finish. Oily texture, medium carbonation, really good fizzy texture. Really nice saison, I might have been swayed by my eyes a bit - but I’m sure looks make up a huge part of taste. Really cool looking and a decent saison beyond that.

Une couleur verte hallucinante et spéciale, une odeur qui s’approche de la merde, mais elle est d’une richesse en bouche incroyable avec une persistance qui l’est tout autant, un truc de ouf comme cette brasserie sait si bien faire

Rating #600! 75cl bottle at Delirium Brussels, shared with Mathieu87. Best Before: 01/2013 APPEARANCE: when pouring you get a clear blond beer, but when you start pouring the yeast residue with it, you get a GREEN beer, WHAT? Nice stable white head. NOSE: fresh, fruity, citrus, apple, sweet, little sour, grapes, kiwi (or is that just because the beer is green?). TASTE: fruity, little sour, nice. This is probably the best fantôme I ever had! Maybe it’s because it expired and that I like the fantôme beers more with some aging? Don’t know, but this was very good!

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2013
What a cool one from Bruce. Aroma is tobacco, burnt rubber, some subtle tea and leather. But the beer pours exorcist green with a big green head. That was worth the price of admission right there. Taste follows suit with leather, stale Pez candy, and rubber ball. Great mouthfeel otherwise. Had to pour this beer after taking pictures, of course.

jbeatty (1039) - New York, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Backlog, tasted 07/31/2011. Pours hazy green color, like authentic green tea or maybe like algae, with foamy head that sticks around for some time. Aroma is nice, funky barnyard, a bit musty, followed by tart citrus, green tea noes, light biscuit malts. Taste is light lemon rind, hint of orange, weak green tea overtones, subtle, with other typical Fantome character. Full in the mouth, nice carbonation, goes down smooth and easy. Decent brew, glad to have tried.

Aniela (2412) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle. Green beer with a greenish head. Sweet, caramell and fruity aroma. Sweet and a bit strange flavour, feels a bit like sweet tea. I just wounder why someone want to make this kind off "beer"...?

DutchDrebus (4142) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Sampled @ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting. The colour is quite unique.. It’s green! Medium sized white head. Smells some banana, strawberry and drink yoghurt. Tastes sweet, fruity and pretty decent even though I didn’t expect that. I finished the glass. Fun beer! Medium body, lovely carbo.
