Süßlich-bitterer Beginn, weich. Prickelnd, trocken, vor allem zum Ende bitterer. Süffig, angenehme Kräuertnoten, gut trinkbar. 7/9/9/9/9/9

Pours a clear, straw-green with a thin layer of foamy white head. Leaves light lacing. Pretty cool looking. Nose has a white wine character with earthy hay maltiness. Lots of fruity grape notes. Taste is juicy grapes, hay, random herbal fruit notes and light, dry, citrus on the back end. Palate has a light spritziness to it and hint of alcohol on the finish. Slick, dry, body. Overall, this is another solid brew from Fantome. I still prefer their strand saison, but I would gladly have this again. Excellent Belgian farmhouse ale. strawberry (14) - Hanover, New Hampshire, USA - APR 12, 2012
Pours a pretty yellow green with delicate bubbles and a thin white foam top. Smells sweet with citrus, white grape and maybe a hint of green tea. Intriguing smells. Tastes on the sweeter side, like it smells, with the same citrus/white grape forwardness and a gentle green tea tannic finish. Love the flavor. Mouthfeel is a little flat, though the body is a nice light white grape juice thickness. Overall a very fun beer and delightfully refreshing. Would love more of this! davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - APR 12, 2012
Lot D, Best before January 2013. I believe this was brewed in January 2011? 750 ml C+ C bottle into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to muskabeatz for sending this my way!
A - Not as green as I was anticipating. Kind of a strange yellow opaque body with a light green tint to it. Kind of a filtered toxic swamp water look. The last glass contained a bunch of yeast and sediment. Swirling and pouring that produces a cloudy neon green body. Slowly rising bubbles. A 2 finger high white head forms and settles down to a thin cap and edging. Some solid lacing and retention.
S - Funky and floral. There is an interesting sweetness to the nose. The tea is noticeable as is some bready malts and herbs.
T - Beyond strange. Starts off with some green apple and lemon, some funky wild notes, and then this smoothness on the finish. The end is peppery with some tea and earthiness. Every now and then I get some cigarette ash. Dry and spicy. Mouth feel is medium, almost syrupy and well carbonated.
O - One of the most interesting beers I have ever tried. Spicy and sweet with a boogery tinted appearance. I can dig what Fantome is doing here. yannickh (16) - on, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2012
bière originale du à sa couleur, odeur très fraîche et agréable, on y retrouve directement le thé vert (infusion de thé vert juste à côté pour comparer), mousse verte pâle et couleur vert-bleu du jus. A la dégustation bière amer et très agréable. Les saveurs sont "magiques" . J’adhère pour moi une des meilleures Fantôme. Merci Dany

Expensive bottle, all by myself. First pour is yellow-green with white head. Aroma is an array of tropical fruits, some grass and definitly japanese green tea. Sounds better than it actually is. Flavor is quite sour and sharp, lots of lime, citrus zest. Palate: Light bodied, med-lively carbonation, a little too thin. But then I pour the rest of it. It gets green, almost blue. The floaties are dark forest green and thick. It sure does gets more interesting. Fuller body, more tea and delicious Fantome yeast. I definitly should have mixed it a little more.

Awesome beer! Pours deep lush grass green. With fluffy white/mint head. Aroma is insanely potent and unique with notes of funk, lemon, mint?, cloves, and basement. Taste is less potent and very subtle with lemon and an earthy crisp yeast characteristic. The finish is so clean and fresh and its really where you pick up the green tea a lot. LOVED IT.

Rated on 20110605.
Pours hazy lemon green color with medium sized head. Aroma of soap and nettle. Flavor of lemon, spices, soapy notes. Tangy and a bit sourish palate, lots of CO2, refreshing fruity aftertaste.
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.
