Drank from my Westvleteren chalice

A - Pours a nice cloudy Straw colour with a one fingered head that reduces to a film quickly.

S - Aromas of Not much chocolate

T - Heavy sherbert and citrus notes up front, with some wheat, the finish has faint chocolate and is slightly bitter.

M - Light to medium body with spritzy fullish carbonation.

O - Disappointed that there was not more chocolate in this, however it still is a great saison in its own right.

Bottle I brought to share at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, smoke, band-aid, and baby wipe aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour smoke and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some odd aromas and flavors that may not be intended but somehow aren't all that bad.

Pours a hazy dark orange with massive off white head. Aroma is bandaids, a bit if spice, and lots of musty yeast. Flavor is acetone and bandaids. A bit of pepper heat. I assume this is not what it is supposed to taste like. It is official. I will never buy another Fantome. 2 for 2 with the disgusting bottles. Down the drain along with my $12...

Old bottle from Brouwer’s.

Pours darker blond, clear, finger white head, some carbonation.

Smell is grainy lagerish, wet hay, slight coco nibs.

Taste subtle, chalky coco, grain and farmhouse funk. Earth and dirt, not tart. Pretty amazing drinkability.

As it warms up, more coco comes out, and herby smell, more saison crisp wheat. Becomes like chocolate milk that is still beer. The chocolate is not the dominating flavor, it accentuates the saison barnyard qualities. Really good.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. No dating on bottle, I would guess this is relatively fresh (within a year or two) - I purchased it a couple months ago.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange, red-tinted apple cider color and leaves behind some white head which dissipates to nothing, leaving just a rim of white around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Mild green apple, a hint of spice/pepper, citrus rinds, a touch of wheat/barnyard funk.

Taste: Some smoke upfront, followed by some grassy flavors, lemon rinds, a hint of cocoa. Finishes with chili peppers, but the flavors are very mild and not spicy at all. Pretty well balanced and light.

Mouth-feel: Well carbonated with a light to medium, spritzy feel to it. There is definitely a feeling of hot pepper/spice in the body, but it doesn't go anywhere. Interesting.

Overall: This was my first offering from Fantôme and I enjoyed it. I found it light and balanced, with only enjoyable flavors. It didn't blow me away, but I definitely got something from the chili peppers added; nothing from the cocoa, unfortunately. I am interested to how this compares to Fantôme's other brews.
