Warning: "verdant" is a little used word in English. I had to use the German to work out what the English meant. Literally: Battle only appears sweet to the inexperienced.
Slightly less literally: Battle only appears sweet to those who lack experience.
"Savour" also seems wrong.
Also, do you definitely mean "battle" or some other kind of fight or combat?

Agree with Windfall. There's a Victorian novel called The Adventures of Mr Verdant Green, but I don't think "verdant" is used in that way in modern English.
Does "Unerfahren" mean someone who has never been in battle? If so, they can't have savoured it.
Google finds a similar expression in Pindar; for various translations into English, see

γλυκύ δ᾽ἀπείρῳ πόλεμος.
πεπειραμένων δέ τις ταρβεῖ προσιόντα νιν καρδία περισσῶς.

   War is sweet to those who have no experience of it,
   but the experienced man trembles exceedingly at heart on its approach.
