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.

danlo (2798) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2017
750ml bottle.Vibrant bright green colour with a white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of bubblegum, fruity, tea, belgium yeast, funky. Taste is green tea & candy, then fruity citric zest, tangy, herbal, with yeasty funky and boozy notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, tangy lingering dry bitter finish. Quite OK.

alteregoo (1201) - POLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Pana drobna, pozostaje dość długo w postaci pierzynki. Barwa słomkowo zielona ze sporą ilością pływających drobnych cząsteczek herbaty/drożdży/chmielu(?). Aromat dziki, estrowy i ziołowo herbaciany jednocześnie, raczej przyjemny. W smaku półwytrawne, delikatnie kwaskowe, delikatnie słodkawe, z nutami siana, stajni, mleczu i brzoskwiń. Nieprzyjemna goryczka, właśnie taka jak po rozgryzieniu mniszka lekarskiego czy mleczu, wręcz chemiczna. W posmakach ewidentnie zielona herbata, lekka pikantność i alkohol w stylu amolu... Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, cierpkie i dość lekkie w odbiorze.
Kolejny Fantôme, który lepiej wygląda na papierze niż smakuje w rzeczywistości. Niby intrygujące funky, pijalność blondów i herbaciane smaczki (uwielbiam zieloną herbatę), ale łącznie piwo muli i męczy już po kilku łykach...

suurjuust (3251) - ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Green pour, small white head. Nose is sweet, peach, bubblegum, herbal notes. Flavor is similar to the nose, but with a nice tea dryness and a hint of caramel. Nice one, albeit weird.

ineedbeer (2044) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle from an older vintage (2010 I believe). Aroma is somewhat fruity with some light citrus and tropical fruit notes. Hints of stone fruit and pear. Some light peppery phenolic notes with a bit of an herbal character. Pours a slightly hazy, chartreuse color with a medium small, frothy, white head that recedes quickly and disappears. No lacing or legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a light malt character. Moderate fruitiness with some green tropical fruit, light citrus and some pear notes. Light herbal notes with a bit of a grassy, matcha note. Slightly floral. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an unique beer, but it’s pretty tasty too. The green tea comes across very fruity. Some nice, light citrus notes as well and a bit of a phenolic note. Classic Fantome.

Rask0lnikov (1002) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2016
750ml bottle. Poors pale green colour. Modest white head. Herbal notes, sourness, slight farmhouse basis and some bitterness in the aroma. Sour notes, hints of green tea, notes of vegetables, citrussy notes, bitterness, hints of grass in the taste. Green tea, sour notes and bitterness in the aftertaste. Moderately carbonated, light bodied interesting brew. The cabbage-like veggie notes did not bother me.

martjoobolut (3681) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle (from Pothouse). Pours light green with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is soapy, fruity, intense peaches, bubblegum. Flavor is sweet, sour, and bitter, fruits, apricots, mango, tea. Finish is tea bitter. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: very good.

jbruner (4410) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a weird hazy green from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruitiness, a hint of saison funk, and an earthy herbal ending. Taste is like a funky sour lemonade green tea combo. Interesting for sure.

rdb84 (586) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2016 Weird pour: small foam, dark green color, very gentle carbo. A: saison yeast, a bitter sourness that reminds of Geuze, citrus, lime, pistachio. T: top saison as is to be expected, yeast character is substituted for a tea like bitterness with citrus and lime notes. Good balance, gentle. Bitter finish.

Bottle sample at SBWF. Pours green with almost no head. Doesn’t taste that much.
