I love their regular Saison but their special versions not always. This one gave me a harsh unbalanced bitterness that I did not enjoy. The green tea did not taste much but it gave be the necessary boost to stay awake a little longer

Capped and corked 750 in traditional Fantome Fashion.

Appearance - Deep Green body with a light frothy cap of bright white head.

Smell - Macha green tea, Vegetal leaves, damp grass, Jazz Apples

Taste - Green tea, some apple/pear once it warms up, a baked cinnamon spice note towards the end but mostly Green tea

Mouthfeel - Medium to low carbonation for fantome. I'd appreciate a bit more carb but otherwise the mouthfeel is pretty hefty and creamy while still remaining dry.

Overall - This isn't my favorite Fantome. But it's a fun beer to open for people who haven't had it. It's a bit of a novelty and while I'm sure there are phenomenal bottles of this out there this one lacked any distinct Fantome house character and is fairly a one note riff on Macha Green tea. Worth a buy but not something I'd long to drink.
