A good, if gimmicky beer. Bright green with a slightly tart, grassy, herbal character. The green tea was sort of lost on me, but it does taste spiced/flavoured. Quite good and quite drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Pours a jade green, cloudy at first but seems to clear up. Looks like no beer I have ever seen, so props for that. Smells like a deodorant soap...Dial, perhaps? Some jasmine. Taste is pretty much the same...not a soapy feel, or the way some hops are soapy, just imagine if it wasn’t making you gag what drinking a florally, liquid soap. I don’t get the point of this at all and why anyone would want to drink it is beyond me. Not even like a saison with green tea...glad I tried it.

Interessant color verd. Poca escuma. Suau de gust i poc amarg. No val massa la pena repetir.

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.
