Bright green with large white head. Aroma is skunk,citrus and maybe mint. Surprisingly sweet and pleasant for something that looks like an energy drink. Hints of citrus and melon.

Beer meets cider. This is really like something I have never tasted before. Fresh, full of taste and feels like a beer. This summer drink really divided people in two groups at our party - the ones who loved it and the opposite. The ones, who did not like it, were the ones who would rather like dark ale or something similar, which this is clearly not. I liked it and I think it’s really interesting and different. I will surely buy it again. If you wonna try something new, you should too.

bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Bottle from Wine Specialist. Hazy pale green color with a vigorous white head. Aroma of something spicey/mentholy. The head laces a bit. Medium bodied with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet herb/grass with some mild spice. It’s floral, but not the way one usually expects. Genepi: " the flavor imparted by the herbs, which include relatives of wormwood, is reminiscent of chamomile or feverfew". Way cool. Absinthe beer! Finishes lightly sweet and herby. Basically this is way out of the mainstream of beer, but it is quite drinkable on its own. It’s a hoot.

Ciekawe zielone i musujące piwo. Z dodatkiem kwiatów Genepi. Przypomina zielone aromatyzowane berliner weisse. Taka ciekawostka

Une très belle couleur verte. Et sur la longueur le goût du génépi est bien là. Nous trop présent ni trop absent.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 2, 2004
bottled chamber, france: the sovoie region of france has several beers to try probably the best area in france for beers. some good some not so good. the bottle was all in french and the beer was light green (verte) and clear...was very curious when i saw it. they use a local flower and it makes kinda of a green tea , mint, citrus...its sweet because they add sugar also....an interesting different style of beer. this was the best of this sort that i found. higher in points for originality and color. but not something you could drink much of. you could use this one for st pattys day!!

My beloved says that it deserve points for being green and smelling like beer. She said it was the funnest beer she’s ever seen. Personally, to mee it looks like either a Berliner Weisse or like a previous commenter said, absinthe and lemonade. It looks odd. It smells like some sort of evil lemon lime and bitters. There is a definite resonance with an aroma in my memory, but I can’t quite put my finger on what it is. It tastes sweet, like lemonade with lime and lemons. Not like beer at all. This beer deserves points for making my Mrs happy if anything.

Tranquillity (1387) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2009
Bottled, brought from... Verbier or Paris, don’t remember which. Aroma sweet, ginger, pine, basil. Taste interesting, intense herbs, basic, a bit dishwashing liquid. Green with green head (duh!).

(Sample Date: 3/21/2009 Source:Mekong) Clear 12 oz bottle courtesy of An at Mekong. Light fruity almost lime like citrus aroma. Clear light lime colored with a small white head. Flavor is lightly sweet lime like with corn sugar notes. Apparently the Genipi flowers used is what gives the beer its color and lime like floral notes. Very interesting.
