Part 4 of the Fantome tasting

Pours a green tea colored green. One of the coolest looking beers I have seen. Pours a white head. Leaves some white lace rings.

Aroma: Green tea and citrus. Lemon-lime again... or maybe the color is playing with my head.... :S Some straw flavors bringing out the barnyardness in this one. A touch of spice in the background.

Taste: This is another very unique saison. This one has some sourness. Green apples and green grapeskins. I taste the green tea which adds another level. Lemon-lime citrus with some straw flavors. A bit of malt here. Solid.

Mouthfeel: Slight sourness with a touch of tartness. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a slight smokey flavor.

Overall, this was a tasty beer. Easy to drink and it had a lot of flavor. Very enjoyable and unique.

First of all, I love every offering I've had from Fantome....now to review...
A: key lime body with a pale lime green head. Looks like key lime pie!
S: funky, citrus, hay, slightly earthy, sour apple
T: literally tastes like sour green apple to me! has a funky aftertaste that is delectable and refreshing. Very crisp.
M: champagne like when posted initially. Consistent tiny little bubbles that tickle the tip of your tongue
O: very tasty and very dangerous because the alcohol is hidden so well. I love fantome and definitely recommend this if you want to try a saison!

Pours a lime green color (now that's somethin you don't see every day) with a medium white head. Scent is green tea with flowers, grass, sweet fruit, funk, and earthy notes. Taste is like drinking some delicious green tea with a saison beer twist. Very refreshing. Lovely green tea flavors with some lemon/lime, barnyard funk, and grass. This is one of the less spicy Fantome beers I've had. Mouthfeel is light bodied and very crisp. Drinkability is very high. I feel this way about all Fantome beers, as the ABV is usually impossible to find...but with this beer it's just ridiculous. It tastes like there is absolutely ZERO alcohol in this beverage. Overall, this is one of the most unique beers I've ever had (color and taste), but it now holds a special place in my heart. I will always remember the green beer with the cool label and will definitely seek out again.

Pizza Port Belgian Beer Party 2011

A- No way...Its reminds me of ecto-cooler when i was a kid. Pours a bright green with an off white head that has a very light green tint to it. Good retention.

S- Smells of barn yard funk, malt sweetness, Belgian yeast characteristics, with some earthy green tea notes hiding in the background.

T--Amazing flavors, marry very well with one another. Starts out sweet, dries quickly revealing some earthy green tea flavors. Nice slightly sour/tart presence all through out. Really unique beer.

M- Bubbly with med-lite body.

O- Kick Ass!!!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I really wish I could give the appearance of this beer a big fat "?" rather than a number. I was careful to pour the beer without disturbing the bottom layer of yeast. Pale green/yellow with a fizzy head that left no lacing and no cap. Afterwards I poured the yeast etc. into the glass, and it was a murky dark green. Highly bizarre.

Smells of, in no particular order, banana, coriander, barnyard, malts, vinegar. A real smorgasbord. Complex and excellent.

Flavors much the same as the nose but with some small modifications. No coriander in the taste, but green apple, lemon, malt, slight bittering (hops? green tea?), banana, and the funk kind of ran away. An amazing swirl of flavors that work together and randomly appear as a highlight with each sip.

Light, effervescent body in line with the flavors of the beer.

Great beer with very unique flavors. Never really picked up the green tea in it except for the color. Another fine offering from one of the most unique brewers out there.

3.1/5  rDev -24.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Color: A murky neon green, like toxic waste or nickelodeon slime. Also reminded me of seaweed and I half expected a swamp monster to slowly emerge from it. Its unusual appearance was quite intriguing.

Head: A bright white short layering of head that for a few moments, morphed the appearance into green jello- with whipped topping.

Aroma: Laughter ensues, gasps and twisted faces as cat nip and skunk attack your senses. Nearly enough to stop you from trying the damn thing.

Texture: Actually quite nice, full bodied, rich and creamy, carbonation is very balanced.

Flavor & Balance: I have to give the brewers kudos for complexity on this one. Initial flavor is powerful-tart, reminiscent of rhubarb and sour apples, there is slight chemical residue that makes you wonder if it really is toxic waste. Aftertaste is grassy, like alfalfa, and stems of dandelions. When the sourness subsides you can detect remnants of green tea and a more sweetened green apple.

Sustained Taste: The aftertaste subdues it to the point that you want to take another drink, and lingers in your mouth for a very long time.

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellowish green. Not quite as green as I was expecting based on pictures and other reviews. It could have been the lighting or bottle variation, but it did get a little bit more green with additional pours from the bottle. There is a small white head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Aroma is green tea with some light lemon, almost a bit like a Lipton's iced green tea. A slight tartness is evident along with some citrus and a very light funk. The initial taste is has a bit of sweetness with green tea and a light lemon tartness. This goes into some light orange peel. The finish has a bit of tartness as well as a very light tea bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. This was actually quite enjoyable. I was expecting to not like it, but was pleasantly surprised. A bit sweeter than a standard saison, but it works here.

750 mL bottle shared by Jeff. Happy Birthday bro.

The color is incredible. I'm not sure how you give this appearance anything other than a 1 or 5. Bright, cloudy near St. Patrick's Day style green with a tall foamy off white, mint tinged head. Excellent retention, settling to a thick film and rings of clumpy lacing.

Aroma is reminiscent of many other Fantomes, slightly sweet and estery yeast, clove and spice, and dry green tea leaves.

Flavor is a little sweeter than expected initially, with a stronger citrus presence than the nose and a little more green tea and mint. Slight funk but not as much as a typical Fantone saison and actually less spice or earthiness than most saisons as well. Finish is tart and mildly sour.

Body is my only complaint, slightly thin and watery in the finish. Strong fine carbonation and a dry, slightly acidic finish.

As this warms more of the tea presence comes out and I start to enjoy this even more. I can rationalize the body with the ingredients used, but it's still the only part of this I'd change. An unique experience, which I'm probably scoring higher than I should by virtue of that, but highly recommended.

Bottle (2011)

K&B Wine Cellars
San Diego, CA

Hazed, murky, nearly toxic green. It looks like Chartreuse. A pretty exciting, show-stopping appearance. Thin off-white head and some spotted lacing down the glass.

A sweet and floral aroma consisting of Granny Smith apples, pears, earth, and grass.

The aroma is a bit more impressive than the flavor, though this beer still definitely tastes good. There's a significant amount of apple, pear, grass, some tea flavors, along with some sweet simple sugars.

Light to medium bodied. Appropriate for a saison.

This beer is not only a show-stopping, unique sight to behold, but a damn good, flavorful beer in its own right. Though I bought a bottle a week later to conduct this review, this beer was the big (surprise) hit at the Pizza Port Belgian Beer Festival!

Bottle shared by Nate at Lost Abbey, thanks!

A: Green in the snifter. The beer is hazy light green, like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles green. Crazy. Nice white head. Very interesting appearance.

S: Rustic farmhouse notes meld with a prominent green tea profile and a sugary sweetness. Citrus is faint and floral notes are apparent.

T: Strong green tea presence with a sugary sweetness. Lightly bitter and only a touch of astringency. The beer possesses a lower moderate sourness. 

M: Medium body with upper moderate carbonation and a sticky, dry mouthfeel.

Overall: A unique, interesting, and enjoyable beer. Recommended.

One of the last two beers I drank before I ended up in the hospital, this was an odd one that I grabbed from my belgian friend.

The pour is an off pureed tea green color it is really hard to describe but very un beer like for sure with a light foamy head. aroma is loaded with belgian yeast, light fruit, hints of tea leaves dominate! this is one odd beer, but it works for sure. really well done, light citrus hints, earthy, fresh, clean, unique, one of the oddest expierences ever.

overall ya got to try it. it was a so so with my brother in and sister in law. but i rather enjoyed it.

This beer is a trip!
I thought I was buying just a seasonal fantome saison and ended up with this pea green liquid haha.

Looks: Pea green , a bit of off green head, kind of gimmicky, feels like its st patricks day, but I like it.

Smell: grassy, bananas, floral, some cherry maybe

Taste: I can taste the green tea a bit, floral, some cough syrup, sorta sour, I think the green tea is the predominant flavor, been a while since Ive had green tea though,

Mouthfeel: low-medium carbonation, very smooth, very drinkable, surprised that it was 8%, feels much lower

Overall: its very good, Probably will restock this weekend. I prefer a couple other of the fantomes over this, but this is pretty interesting and I would love to have it again.

App- Pours with a good amount of carbonation and leaves nice lacing

Smell- Funky saison with green tea

Taste- The green tea really enhanced this saison, rounding out flavors. It's sweet without being cloying. Barnyard, but in a good way. Would be fantastic on a hot day.

Mouthfeel- Well carbonated and goes down easy

Overall- Really enjoyed this beer. Think i'll pick up a few more bottles before it disappears, no pun intended.

Hard to rate as its a one of a kind. Pours completely a hazy green vegetable puree with a white finger of foam leaving little lacing. The nose follows the taste with heavy vegetal/herbal notes, grenadine and wild flower/weedy notes. The taste and mouthfeel is more of the samd and almost comes across as a sour. Nicely done but not to be tried again at $16 per bottle.

Thanks to jbtice0315 @ Clusterfork #6

App- Holy hell batman, It's green! Pours like a unripe pear with a nice little one finger head and a bunch of cling on the glass.

Smell- Its a saison all right, classic scents with a bit of dampness and a special belgian yeast. A little sugary as well with some grassy/floral notes.

Taste- A lot like a base Fantome but kicked a notch with the addition of some tea leaves. A nice balanced flavor with some floral notes and that lovely yeast strand.

Mouth- Light to medium bodied and almost high carbonted. Leaves a faint yeast.

Drink- As always Fantome comes out in spades. A nice beer with a lot going on and is quite different. I didnt see this around in So. Cal. Maybe I just didnt look hard enough.

750 mL bottle shared at the July Santa Cruz tasting. Pours an absurd unnatural green - fluorescent lime/ecto cooler to be exact - with a small white head. Aroma is lemons and limes, or lemon-lime soda, with some coriander and clove. Flavor is key lime, green tea, lemon candy, ginger, orange peel. A ludicrous beer.

750ml bottle.

Holy shit, I had no idea it was going to pour like this...lime green with a off-white/green head that leaves some lime-colored lacing and a small cap. I have never seen a beer like this...ever.

Aroma brings me back to reality and expectations a bit. It's got the nice earthy, grassy Fantome character with some green tea and light herbs and spices. There is also an overall grainy character to the nose.

The taste has more of a zing than the aroma would suggest. The green tea is more pronounced, as is the Belgian yeast with the grassy notes taking on a bit of acidity which definitely didn't come through in the nose. The finish is green tea and light sweet fruits and malts.

The mouthfeel is light and effervescent and pleasantly prickly.

This is another curveball saison thrown by Fantome. The color is shocking, which the nose is a little more subtle. The taste brings back some shock value with the green tea coming through. Overall, it's not my favorite from Fantome, but it's still better than most.

Body is a hazy, light pastel green. The only green beer I've ever seen without adding woodruff syrup or green food coloring. A perfect pastel green color for Easter but it would work well for St. Patrick's Day too. Head poured to a half inch lasts quite awhile, and is regenerated with swirling, leaving lots of little clouds of lacing.

Smells of green tea, malt, candi sweetness (as in a lollipop), and spices--probably coriander and ginger.

Tastes delightful. On the front palate, malt and green tea--which go together delightfully--midpalate is delightfully lemony acidic, with a little backdrop of malt sugar, back palate is a little dry and just slightly tannic from the green tea with a bit of a spice burn on the tongue. Just a delightful taste experience. Yet this definitely has the saison profile, especially the Fantôme yeast.

Body is medium as is the carbonation, and produces a nice substantial creamy mouthfeel as a saison should.

Overall, it is the weirdest saison I've ever set eyes or mouth to, but another splendid contribution from Fantôme. How many ways can Fantôme spell saison? This is a very good beer to pair with food. I had this with a dinner of grilled steelhead trout and gingered carrots, and I was very pleased how it all went together. The acid cuts through the fish fats while the ginger blended well with the sweet gingered carrots, held in balance by the lemon acidity of the beer. I wouldn't drink a whole 750 ml bottle of this all by itself without some food pairing, but you could twist my arm.

A- Hazy aloe vera green with about an inch of brilliant white head. Reduces over a minute or so, leaving no lacing.

S-Similar to the regular Fantome Saison, but a little less herbaceous. I don't specifically smell green tea, but there is a faint whiff of leafy, vegetal something or other in there.

T/M-Appropriately bizarre for Fantome, and yet it all comes together in such a harmonious way.The green tea, though understated, comes through just enough to provide a fascinating counterflavor to the signature funk of the Fantome saison yeast. There's also a lemony tartness that comes in mid-palate, providing a temporary change of tone from the earthy funk, but that lasts only a moment. The finish is yeasty and slick, with the most subtle hint of tea bitterness and aloe.

O-Wow. Another winner from Fantome. Don't be turned off by the appearance, this stuff is serious business.

Thanks to Richard for sharing this interesting beer.

A: The pour on this beer is an alluring bright yet hazy green with a small, light green/white head.

S: Some tea is certainly noticeable on the nose, which is quite interesting. A fairly heavy hand on the spice notes and a mild which consists of mostly funk and straw. A light floral note as well as some cracker and bready malts.

T: I was sort of surprised by the amount of green tea flavor this has. There is a mild sweetness or bread and malt. A sort of unexpected acidity comes through on the back end and give some apple and lemon zest flavors.

M: The body is medium with carbonation on the higher side of medium.

O: With the amount of unknowns that go into drinking a Fantome beer, I was hesitant to get excited about this. Luckily, it really impressed me and I found it to be a great beer.

I picked up two bottles of Fantome Magic Ghost. Big mistake...I should have picked up as many as I could! I'm not reviewing many beers here, only the really great and perhaps the really bad.

This one may well be my favorite Fantome. My favorite,....not the best since I don't even know what that means when talking about beer...it is, however, my favorite.

I also suspect it's my favorite since it's relatively new, I'm told, and just full of fresh, full, floral, assertive and wonderful character in all respects.

Color is the only crazy thing about it. Green. Yes, it's made with green tea. And, it's green. I heard that food color was added but I don't know if it's true or urban legend at this point. Suffice it to say it's green. No head.

Nose is pure floral, elegant and fruity green tea and sweet pepper/tea elegance. The fruit tones and sweet floral quality are just really inviting and full of perfume.

Mouthfeel is medium but fresh and with light carbonation. The mouthfeel has one of my favorite characteristics in that it feels "bright" and fresh in the mouth. It is uplifting and exciting in the mouth, almost inviting one to gulp.

Flavors profile is sensational. I've only just learned that the proper way to make green tea is to use only warm water - not hot water. I'm told that in Japan those in the know actually use water that is only as hot as body temperature. In that way, one gets the fresh, elegant, sweet, floral and perfumy character of green tea. I've learned that the tannic bitterness characteristic in some green tea is that the tea is actually burned by the hot water.

Well, Fantome makes great green tea! Clearly. This beer demonstrates a flavor profile of "properly brewed" green tea. The green tea flavors are just bursting and fresh. There is a floral, perfume sweet green tea character all around with none of the bitter or tannic character.

Finish is likewise elegant, fruity albeit short.

A complete winner. One of the few brews where I'm really regretting not getting more bottles when I had the chance. One left and it will be consumed soon, fresh, at an upcoming beer tasting. Aging will only take this wonderful fresh, sweet, elegant perfume out of the beer. I'll not age this one. I'll drink as many bottles as I can find.

Picked up 2x 750 ml bottles today. Aging one, drinking one today. As mentioned by the other reviewers, this beer pours a hazy lime green with a massive soapy white head. Sticks all over the glass as I swirl it around.

Aroma consists of yeast funk, pepper, lemon, and green tea. Some other earthy, spicy characters in the nose as well, but not easily described. Flavor has a sweet malty/grainy backbone with other flavors following the nose; lemon zest, orange, ginger and green tea. Finish is rather tart and dry. Bubbly on the tongue with a rather light, refreshing body. Very different but enjoyable brew.
