look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a snifter. Beer poured a hazy light green with thin to little head that leaves some light lacing as you drink from the glass. Definitely a weird and interesting looking green color.

Nose is floral and fruity, with notes of apple, pear and kiwi. A bit of earthiness and herbs. Almost like an orchard or a garden.

Taste has the light floral and fruity flavors, with a wheat backbone. Fairly light on the tongue, leading to some light tartness and earthy herbal flavors. Finish is clean, with some light floral and herbal lingering lightly.

Light body with mild carbonation, combined with the lightness of the flavor profile makes it easy to enjoy quickly.

Bottle to snifter

From notes. I've enjoyed this a couple of times, but this review comes courtesy of Knownfactor bringing this to a tasting...thanks Matt!

A: Ghostbuster ectoplasm green. Sweet! I'm a fan already. Barely a quarter (dull white) fingernail head on medium pour.

S: Mostly lemon and green apple here with hints of white pepper, coriander, and faint wheat. Slight funk, but nothing too crazy.

T: Tart and smooth. Very different, but quite tasty at the same time. Green apple, pear, white pepper, cumin, white (unripended) grapes, Belgian yeast.

M: Medium/full bodied with medium carbonation.

O: I really like how Fantôme will push the limits to expand the range of a style (in this case saison/farmhouse ale). Good beer all-around and a fun one to get people to make a double take when witnessing it being poured.

pours a hazy murky green.... odd, but wouldn't expect anything else from Fantome. smallish head recedes quickly as my brother pours a bit carefully.

aroma out of the bottle smells skunky, but luckily when the glass is held up to my nose, its more funky with tons of hay, grass, lemongrass, honey-infused green tea, maybe, but that may be the color playing games with me.

tart up front. sweet tarts, hay, earthy, musty, dirty, lemongrass, a bit herbal, yet surprisingly refreshing with a nice dry finish. could definitely be some green tea in there, kind of reminds me of a kombucha, actually. very nice.

tingly from the tartness with a smooth, velvety carbonation and a dry finish.

another great funky saison from Fantome. each of the 3 I have had have been within the style but with their own unique characteristics.

Thanks to AshleyMiller for this one! 750ml bottle split between a pair of Fantome tulips and shared with TulipSnifter.

A: Key lime green colored beer with a finger and a half of paper white head. No lacing to speak of, but the nice green color is pretty unique and appetizing. 4/5

S: Fairly basic saison profile on the nose. Specifically this is the profile I associate with Wyeast 3711 French saison yeast, one of my favorite. Black pepper, white pepper, coriander, cumin, and an abundance of spice defines the 3711 aroma and that's what comes through here. Solid. 4/5

T: Nice and fruity with a pepper backbone. Banana, melon, cucumber, and... Spearmint? The guessing game about what makes this green continues! A cool refreshing mintiness is appreciated. Not sharp like peppermint either sooo, spearmint is my final answer. Very interesting stuff. 4/5

M: Full and heavy with a crisp finish. 5/5

O: A provoking beer. I'm glad to have tried this because now I'm inspired to make something similar. A simple pilsner/wheat malt profile, with noble hops, French saison yeast, and some spearmint in secondary sounds like a plan for a homebrew. Very glad to have tried this and hope to make something close to it soon. 4/5

I shared a bottle with Douglas Miller and Marcus Siu.

A- Mountain Dew? My bottle was neon green… I have read different descriptions of the color, but I could have told someone this was MNT DEW, and they would have believed me. A small head that quickly went away and no there was lacing to speak of.

S- Smelled rather funky and yeasty, smells funkier than it tastes. There are hints of Granny Smith apple and lemon.

T- Unique! Sweet n Sour; I also picked up a slight earthy flavor which I assumed was the alleged addition of spinach. There is a hint of green tea, but it came in more as it warmed. Lambic qualities in this saison...

M- Highly carbonated with a light foamy body. The high carbonation was a present addition to this brew, creating a nice foamy mouth feel. The mouth feel matches the look.

O- The most unusual brew I have ever had. If you find this, it is a no brainer to pick one up. This brew is a great rarity and an example of why I will always pick up a new Fantôme.

Tasted blindly courtesy of Blind BIF #6. I had a wild ride with this one... Note that this bottle was very different from the first time I had Magic Ghost. It wasn't green until the dregs of the bottle, and the flavor was a bit different. I'm chalking it up to typical Fantome bottle variation.

750ml bottle poured into Hill Farmstead Goblet.

Appearance: Pour into glass yields a finger of thin white head. Liquid is a hazy golden yellow, lighter near the edges. Gentle spotted lacing, and the head has relatively nice staying power.

Smell: Very fruity. Apples blend with lemons and other assorted citrus-zest. Tiny bit of funk, but a surprisingly sweet nose.

Taste: More fruit. Apples again take control, but a lot more is going on - lemon, grass, a very earthy malt, some barnyard funk… Slight tinge of tartness here. Tasty Belgian yeast lingers on the palate, demanding you to take the next sip.

Mouthfeel: Moderate to high carb - gentle at first, but more potent bubbles on the back. Thin body. Very refreshing on the palate.

Drinkability: High. ABV is almost non-existent, I'm going to guess 6% or so, but it could be a bit higher.

Overall: A very nice, crisp, and refreshing beer. Would definitely drink again.

I have to thank my wife for the gift of beer. It's nice to have her supporting my hobby. Emphasis on hobby, not problem. Anyhoo...

Poured this out of a 750 ml bottle into my CBS snifter.

A) Holy cow, is it St. Patty's Day? This is a granny smith green with a finger of foamy head, which dissipated pretty quickly to just a collar. That was eventually gone too. There was no lacing. This was actually kind of cloudy, with sediment. The more I thoght about it, I was thinking a thin split pea soup. This was so unique. I really liked the looks of it.

S) A bit yeasty, funky and fruity, primarily a sour apple. There is a little lemon zest, and as it warms a bit, I was thinking a little green tea.

T) I can honestly say, this tastes like no beer I have previously enjoyed. At least not that I can recall, and I mean this as a compliment. This is a little yeasty and grainy, with sour fruits, and some leafy vegetable earthy quality. The sourness is what I enjoy. It drives you to the next sip.

M) Medium body with quite a bit of carbonation. There is a zip and tingle to this one on the palate, but it feels right. The aftertaste is very satisfying.

O) I don't think this is a beer I would care to drink regularly, but I sure would like to have it on hand for when I'm in the mood. I would highly recommend this brew.

Ah, the infamous green Fantome. Thanks to cbutova for sharing this, been looking forward to trying it.

The rumors are true! Crazy appearance - old chlorine/algae green with a slightly pale blue head (!) that is unstoppable. A slime bubble bath with lots of carbonation bubbles. One of a kind appearance to say the least.

Belgian yeast, apple, lemon, grassy notes in the nose. Good, a little tamed for Fantome.

It's an odd one, but it's more like a regular saison than any other Fantomes I've had. Lots of yeast, tart fruits, apple, white grapes, lemon, lime, Ecto-Cooler. Not really noticeable green tea but some weird herbalness, bready malt.

High carbonation but fits the beer, as usual for the brewery no alcohol taste and lots of flavor.

Refreshing, awesome, strange and complex exactly what I expect from Fantome. This is probably one of the more 'down to earth' beers I've had from them which isn't saying much. On the lookout for bottles of this one for sure.

Always happy to try a new Fantome, split 3 ways last night and reviewed from notes.

A- Out of the bottle is a 100% green apple hue and pours with a big foamy white head. The head has nice retention and falls to a small cloud and ring eventually. Nice creamy lace down the glass. So much green and yeast it is opaque. Stunning.

S- Tart fruit up front with good floral and herbal hints backing that. Saison yeast makes a nice appearance as well as tart grapes and a definite apple fruit note.

T- A good mix of what reminds me of a traditional saison and some funky lambic properties. Filled with white grapes, tart green apple, Belgian yeast spices and saison notes, grassy herbal hints. Lemon citrus zest and some yeast bread as well. Green tea comes into play later, see below.

MF- Creamy and foamy body with a smooth feel overall. Finishes tart and has a sharp fruit pit bitterness.

Really enjoyed this one. Hard to really describe it with words but it was nice and fruity, a bit funky and still retained some saision and beer properties for being a Fantome. Really enjoyed the tart fruits. Oddly enough the only thing I could taste on my palate was green tea, after drinking some water to rinse before the next beer.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip. Bottle says best before end of Jan. 2013.
A: Pours quite possibly the craziest color beer I've seen...pale candy apple lime green. Like watered down ectoplasm. Minimal white head quickly is gone making you wonder if it was ever there to begin with. Honestly hard to judge appearance on this one.
S: Tart apple, citrus, sweet candi sugar, cereal (like toasted oatmeal), green tea, and a faint hint of herbs. Again very interesting and hard to judge...especially against a typical saison.
T: Wow! Different and more craziness. Herbal green tea, toasted grains, alternatingly sweet and tart candy apple, mixed fruit (melon, nectarine, lime, raspberry, more?), sweet malt, and a note of ginger ale. Definitely interesting and quite complex.
M: Smooth and oily. Sweet with a hint of tart and sour. Light body. ABV nearly imperceptible. Mildly dry and refreshing finish.
D: This one is in a category of its own. Definitely give it a shot...a very interesting brew and unlike any other beer I've experienced. Good drinkability and fairly refreshing.

Pours a unique hazed green color, somewhere between green tea and split pea soup in hue, moderate cap of white froth, some lacing at the top of the glass. Scent is quite sweet with notes of tropical fruit like kiwi and lemon lime, backbone is light funk and barnyard must, light herbal quality. Taste beings with the fruity sweetness with a splash of herbal notes, mellows into dried hay, barnyard must. Medium bodied, prickly, some suspended yeast particles give a little to the body. Quite a unique brew from Fantome between the green color and sweet fruity notes.

Nose is earthy and funky with a herbal note.

Best before Date: 1/2013

Purchased @ Hill Farmstead (Harvest Festival 10/1/11) Greensboro, VT

Price - $15/bottle

My first thought here is "Why put this in a green bottle!?

Pours a hazey straw yellow with a single finger soapy white head (no green). Average retention with spotty lacing. I heard this was suppose to look green but I'm not getting any green whatsoever. Streams of carbonation are visible and help maintain a thin film which covers the top.

The nose is lemon and lime with some earthy notes. An underlying musty foundation from the Belgian yeast authenticates it's style.

The flavor is surprisingly sweeter than other Saisons I've experienced, but still balanced. This example has a strong citrus backbone which I dig. Zesty flavors of lemon, green apple and kiwi dominate the taste.

Mouthfeel is light and clean with a low carbonated feel which is perfect for the style. The body is light and refreshing with a mild tartness. In the end it's noticeably dry.

Overall a pretty impressive example of the style and my favorite to date. If I come across more in the future, I'll certainly buy it. Quite sessionable and maybe a little dangerous @ 8%.

A: The beer is hazy light lime green and yellow in color and poured with a thin off white head. It becomes less hazy as the beer warms up. The head gradually died down but consistently left swirls of lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of citrus in the nose—lime seems to stand out in particular.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has light to moderately strong flavors of limes and other fruits with a light amount of funky yeast. The taste becomes more complex as the beer warms up and also has notes of dill and creamed spinach in the flavors along with some hints of sourness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly creamy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a very refreshing change of pace that is unique and interesting and goes down very easily.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy green (!?!) into a Golden Monkey tulip. I thought I was prepared for it, but it’s still rather shocking when you first see it. My significant other warned me against drinking it, but I’m willing to take this risk. A one-finger, greenish head sticks vanishes rather quickly, leaving a small amount of lacing as I work my way through the glass.

Smell: Interesting, and certainly unusual. I get a combination of two different types of fruits – lemons and other citrus on one hand, and tart berries on the other. Surrounding it all is a light, almost herbal spiciness.

Taste: For me, this beer defies characterization, and it’s hard to figure out how to describe it. I suppose I can say that the tart berries that came through in the nose remain, the citrus from the nose becomes almost sweet, there’s a modest biscuit-y malt backbone and a vague herbal feel, and a hint of grass and straw from the yeast, and it all works. At the very end, after I’ve swallowed, I get a hint of the green tea. This may be the most incoherent review I’ve ever written, but this beer is a real stumper.

Mouthfeel: It’s pretty highly carbonated, and feels very light in the mouth – it almost dances on your tongue.

Drinkability: Quite high. I have no idea how to even begin thinking of pairing this with food, and unlike a traditional saison I think you’d need to think a little about it, but I’m sure there are some good combinations.

From 750mL bottle to Bruery tulip glass

Justifying the title, Magic Ghost reveals itself as one of the most unique looking beers I've ever seen. The head disappears like it's soda, and in place of straw-yellows and golden-ambers is a striking, algae-like green.

But the nose and flavors aren't all that shocking, and are quite balanced and delicious. It smells of citrus tones and tea and grass, as cracker-y notes surround the bouquet, and work as a nice segue to each sip. The flavors are surprisingly delicate, with notes of lemon, tea, honey-malts blending to make a singular flavor and a completely drinkable farmhouse ale. The grassy funk plays a role, but this is one of the more simply refreshing saisons I've sampled.

750 ml served into a tulip

A-This is by far the coolest looking beer I have ever seen. It is literally green. It is like this weird grassy green color with a solid white head.

S-A lot of lemon, grass, green tea, honey and fresh outdoors.

T-A little sour but not quite geuzy sourness. It is a lemony herbal sour. There is a lot of green tea shining through especially in the aftertaste. Unlike a spiced beer, the spices do not overpower. There is also a bready taste.

M-Really carbonated, leaves a nice tingly feeling on the tongue.

O-This beer is really cool. That is the simplest way to describe it. It is green and it tastes really good.

Shared by Michael at a mega-Fantome tasting recently, served in a Fantome tulip that by this point had some much Fantome in it, Peter Venkmen was asking if he could borrow it.

Beer is not bright green but kind of yellow green, methinks there is some bottle variation in here. Oh well. soft white, lazy head, low retention, low lacing, low carbonation.

Aroma is yeasty, bready, sweet, tea like, leafy.

Beer is nice, I can taste the tea but it is not overwhelming, I really enjoy it overall. The finish is a little dry but the overall body is medium with nice yeast, floral, and tea notes, the tea comes up later. Overall a nice little beer.

Pours a fluorescent slime green color that's reminiscent of ecto cooler with a thin white head that quickly fades not a thin ring. Minimal lacing.

Very earthy and funky aroma with lots of barnyard must/horsey notes along with some earthy oak and a mineral/vegetal tea leaf presence. The green tea compliments the funky yeast very well, resulting in a very unique aroma.

Light bodied with a ton of earthy funk and green tea flavor. Not sour but musty and earthy with hints of straw, wet hay and grass and funky bugs. This is nicely complimented by the herbal/mineral green tea presence, creating a very odd, yet very flavorful, funky beer. Unlike anything I've had before.

First thanks to Mtardiff for providing this in trade. Thanks. Glad I have a witness to this review as my experience with this beer seems to be very different than all others listed. Jctribe25 (Patrick) and I shared this bottle.

First, this beer is NOT green, at all. Pale Amber in color or perhaps a hazy dark straw color.

Aroma is very fruity and also thick with sweetness.

Flavor is thick with sweetness just like the aroma, if not even sweeter. Candied sugar takes the lead on top of a pale malt undertone. Drinks like a Belgian Pale Ale. Would never consider this to be a saison.

Soft and rounded but feels thicker due to sweetness.

Really not what I expected here.

Curious. Spinach dust? Initial pour, into tulip, not super aggressive, but not terribly gentle either, brought a smallish white soapy head. I gave a low score for appearance not for the green color of the beer, but because the head disappeared right away, completely. The green beer with the head was interesting and appealing...without the foam, not so much. A quick swirl brings the foam back, but again it doesn't stick in any way. Great herbal fruity musty grassy nose. Supremely sniffable. The flavor follows the nose and is truly compelling. The beer is sweet tart fruity earthy and delicious. Not highly carbonated, somewhat slick, easy drinkin'. Overall, I really like this beer, but I wonder what the point of the "green" is. I was told spinach dust was used, but I can't help but wonder why?

From 11/05/11 notes. Bottle shared by someone at the mega-Fantome tasting. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Cigar City snifter.

a - Pours a yellow-green color with light sediment, moderate carbonation evident, and one inch of white head. Looks odd and off, though not as neon green as some bottles.

s - Smells of fruity malts, spices, light yeast, and light earthy notes. Nice fruit, but not too strong.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, spices, yeast, and vegetables. A bit odd; a step down from the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall not my favorite at the tasting, but good. Appearance is very odd looking, but luckily it smells and tastes a ton better. Would have it again, but wouldn't be my go-to Fantome beer.

Bought a e 0,75 l bottle of this from the Map Room in Chicago, IL for $30 (negotiated the price down from $35! Great bartenders here @ the Map Room!). Poured from the green bottle with a Magician scaring Ghosts off with his wand into a 16oz Tulip Glass. Has Lot n: d, A consommer de preference avant fin: J (January), and Best before end: 13 (2013) on the front label. Fantômes don't always have their best by or lot letters stamped/marked on their bottles but cool seeing it here!

Aroma- Very strong barnyard aroma from the beginning with a slight peppery background. Light sour and tart aroma hangs on here and doesn't distract from anything else going on in here. Low hop and medium spicy aromas follow everything. Very complexed aroma!

Appearance- Pours a 3 finger head that has tremendous retention. What comes next is the craziest site I've ever seen with a beer! Pours an AWESOME Hulk Green colored body that is very hazy and with this turns the body color to a more of an olive color. Leaves tons of lacing on the glass afterwards. This could not be better! The color AND everything else in the appearance is great!

Flavor- This beer can be summed up with two words; Kiwi & Tart. The drink starts out with a nice sour and yet complexed flavor lasting for the entire time. Not too overpowering either. Then the fruitiness comes in with a very awesome and distinct Kiwi flavor! Almost looks from the appearance that kiwis were brewed into this. A very light/moderate bitterness then finish off the brew. Wonderful!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, good sourness but then finishes on the dry side.

Overall Impression- Wow! One of my TOP Saisons and my favorite Fantôme now. A great and complexed brew that had a fascinating kiwi taste. The sourness was very appropriate and not overpowering. I would love to get my hands on another bottle of this if I see it out but am not looking to spend over $30 again... Was definitely worth it this time! Go for it if you see it!

A – Neon green: stir up the yeast on the bottom for straight Ecto-Cooler. White head is pillowy with lime highlights. Low lace and ok retention.

S – Tart apple, grass, and sour melon.

T – Tart with a bright acidity. Lemon sour patch kids, tart apple, green wood, and lime. Think tart lemon-lime soda over beer.

M – Medium body with a bright spritzy carbonation.

O – Definitely on the tart side of the style. Super refreshing.

Now here's a beer I've heard of, never pursued, but was certainly curious about, and was excited to try when it was brought out at a tasting.

Review from notes

A: Green! 5 oz pour into a FW tasting snifter, Hazy, white bubbly head, rose about a quarter of an inch, then settled to a ring of bubbles. High marks alone for the color, since there is very little to compare that too.

S: Macha, green tea, and cream.

T: Low sugar apple ice cream, and green tea.

M: Champagne like mineral quality, medium carbonation.

O: It's good, and very unique in my opinion. Alcohol barely registers, and it's an easy Saison/Farmhouse Ale to drink. It's also pretty rare to use "green" to describe a beer appearance (dyed lagers on Saint Patrick’s day don't count to me)
