I had this a year ago but since I just joined I need to add it. Still my favorite beer of all time. I drank a 2009 vintage and it was rich with green tea and yeasty funk. Amazing

This fizzy green elixir fills the glass with it’s airy head. Funky nose with a whiff of tea. The body exhibits and enjoyable matcha tea character with a nice twangyness on the finish.

750cl btl Looks .. Cloudy yellow golden with heavy green tinge..then very lime green on second pour with some sediment.. Med head Smells..fresh hay, some sweet fruit, a little dull orange and candy, spice & green tea. Tastes..fruit, citrus & some funk that gives a slight tart character, that is dulled by the malt and ends with earthy..swampy yet bittersweet green tea

75cl bottle shared in a tulip. Initially disappointed with the lack of green - the pigment is located in the sediment. Once the sediment is poured in you are looking at thick almost neon green with a nice white head. Maybe not the most appetizing look but I can only give it full marks for the novelty. Aroma is typical saison notes (hay, earthy) with lots of fruitiness. Taste is citrusy notes (mostly lime) almost no bitterness and just the right level of sweetness. Very, very refreshing (glad I waited for the hottest day of the year so far to open this one). I would definitely buy this again because it is so unique and I can think of nothing better for the scorching summer (I don’t like wit beers). The ABV is almost non-existent. You would never guess this is 8%. Too easy to drink.

Bottle from Bier Tempel. I often smile to myself at the chaps in such shops frantically checking their phones for Ratebeer scores or equivalent. Content in my ’superior knowledge’ I’m normally happy to wing it...then I get home and discover my carefully sourced Fantome is green. Very green. I mean seriously, it looks more like a cocktail from the Mos Eisley cantina than a beer! Once you get beyond the green colour it’s actually quite interesting. Initially quite standard saison if you keep your eyes shut, some heavy Fantome yeast, clean, quenching, little bit of bitterness, there’s a definite lime taste, then the green tea hits towards the end with that weird end of drink palate heaviness I find from green tea related products. Reminds me a bit of the Japanse green tea cafe in Kyoto! I’d put this beer in the very interesting and good but slightly weird category.

Habanero (3173) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2015
Bottled. Pours cloudy and greenish with an average off-white head. Aroma of yeast, a little funk, citrussy notes, some spice and herbal tea. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry. Medium bodiedd, oily texture and lively carbonation. Quite special, crisp and very nice in its own way. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bottle 75cl from Bierhalle Deconinck, @ home. Green color, no head. Aroma of green tea similar in the taste. Almost no carbonation. Very special, to be tried at least once.
