4.4/5 rDev +5.8%
750ml bottle poured into a matching Fantome tulip. The brew appears a clouded golden orange with a huge white froth. Some soapy suds of lace paint the entire wall of the glass.
The aroma contains notes of bright juicy limes and cereal grain sweetness. Reminescent in a strange way of fruity pebbles cereal. Some grapefruit juice quality also thrown in.
The taste is tart and fruity like limes with some bretty earth funk. A lime-like pulpy bitterness and grapefruity zest aspect have not only a fruit quality but also a firm citrus tart grasp on this brew.
This is a light bodied offering with an effervescent amount of carbonation. It is hugely crushable with little to no alcohol impact. I could drink bottle after bottle of this. The best Fantome offering I have had in a long time. Wow.

4.06/5 rDev -2.4%
750ml bottle poured into a Fantôme tulip.
The beer pours a super cloudy and hazy orange copper color, hues of apricot with a thick, fluffy, soapy white head, about 3 fingers high that has moderate retention but leaves little to no lace behind. The aroma is funky, spicy, floral and bready but with nice fruity hops, light bitterness in the nose, but more so funk and light spice from the yeast. The flavors are definitely funk and yeast forward, big horse blanket, straw, pale grain, light mustiness, but the hop character is really juicy, fruity and floral that lingers really nicely. The mouthfeel is nice, crisp carbonation for such a full bodied beer, coats very well, nice chewiness that finishes with a nice amount of dryness.
Verdict: A very nice saison from Fantôme, first time in a while I've been able to try a bottle of theirs that didn't have huge quality issues. The juicy hop flavors were very enjoyable and what's more is that the bitterness was kept low allowing the complexities from the yeast and grain to come forward.
