On tap at Lambicus Barcelona. Surprising light green with disappearing white head. Lightly carbonated. Does not look like a beer at all, but smells like lambic big time. Lightly spicy. Good balance between acid, salty and a bit bitter. Not your ordinary Belgian lambic but well done and interesting.

750ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Big white/green head settles quickly, minimal lacing. Hazy mint green body. Nose is funky, hints of berries, yeast. Flavour is more funk, bread, yeast, sour apple, some bitterness on the finish. High carbonation, decent mouthfeel. Really weird, not entirely convinced but very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

SinH4 (4564) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2017 Bottle. Semi-opaque hazy neon-green color with white head. Aroma is perfumed lime, exotic fruits, funky wild yeasts. Taste is grassy green tea, more exotic fruits, peppery yeast character, a touch of dough and bubblegum, and a slight tea bitterness. Silky mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Aftertaste of fruits and green tea. Excellent experiment, and it worked out great!

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle. Big citrus aroma, lime. Taste is similar, lime, not much hint of the green tea which is a bonus for me as I don’t like it. Nice. Bit soapy, bit sour.

danlo (3000) - 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.

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 (3504) - 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 (2132) - 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.
