Pours a cloudy bright orange with three finger head. Smell: sweet belgian pale malt with citrus muskiness. Taste: initially sweet that diapears in a nano second, holy shit that becomes dry. bone dry! In that nano second between pleasant malt sweetness and life sucking dryness is some spice and citrus tartness. Finish is earthy and full of bitter old hops. I like it! Carbonation is high and adds a nice spritz to the beer. Alcohol presence not noticeable at all. (464 characters)

Thanks to sweemzander for opening this one.

(A) Cloudy yellow that turns a bit more golden toward the top. It has a big foamy white head on it that lasts for a long while.

(S) Has a lot of citrus to it. There is a bit of mild spice. Almost has a sourness to it.

(T) What stands out the most is lemon zest. There are some spices but I can't pick out what exactly they are. Other citric notes linger and there is a faint hop aftertaste.

(M) It's a pretty thin beer and ends quite dry. Hit and gone.

(O) The bottle mentioned there were a lot of hops but it's not too big on hops. It's quite refreshing and is a drier/thinner saison. (634 characters)

Bottle brought to me from Capones by my dad....thanks, Dad. Pours a dusky, cloudy orange, not much in the way of a head, mostly just a thin film with a ring of bubbles around the outer edge. Smells of oranges, black pepper, jasmine flowers, and sort of a lemony hop freshness. Taste is distinctly lemony, somewhat sweet and grassy, some amount of tart orange flavor. Lemon-orange is what lingers. Medium bodied, a bit sticky. Drinks well, and fast. A refreshing, tart treat from Fantome. (487 characters)

I've been burned by my last two bottles of Hiver but out seems in Denver Hiver and Noel are all we get. I was excited to see different Fantome at Lukas Liquors.

A- beautiful hazy straw gold with the best pillowy white head I've seen in years. Amazing retention and lacing.

S- ah shit, it's got a little of that skunky, band aide, and chemical notes I've before far to familiar with in Hiver. I'm worried.... the off smells dissipated a bit with a vigorous swirl or six.

T- very nice, notes of musty barnyard funk, white pepper, sweet cereal grains and bright lemon peel. The skunky notes are there but play well with the funk.

M- a tad oily but effervescent and soft enough to negate the slickish oily texture.

O- very different but very nice. It's less polished than many of the elite saisons out there but has a very rustic appeal (838 characters)

A- Huge off white head on a cloudy dark golden body (sort of orange). Nice decent size lacing which also sticks to side of glass.
S- Big helping of European hops. Lemon and orange scents. Some yeast in there too. Light spices make their way through too.
T- Big hop flavor. Slight tang to it (might be the type of yeast). Spices make their way through quite big. Also leaves a pretty big bitterness on the tongue. Lemon and light orange flavors are pretty big. Also a surprising malt background that is bigger than you would think for the brew. Spices consist of cloves and a few others, these also linger into the aftertaste too. There is one flavor that stands out big I just can't tell what it is.
M- Thin body with high carbonation.
D- It is good. Don't think it's one of my favorites. It is a decent beer though. I think that one flavor I can't pinpoint is what lowers it in my book. (893 characters)

Bottle provided by LSUPT. You're always finding a way to hit my wants Alex, thanks.

Split with my girlfriend in 2 Fantome tulips.

It pours a hay-like yellow with a creamy white head on top. Carbonation swirls around everywhere in this brew. Tiny legs of lace are left on the glass.

Smell is of slight alfalfa, brick dust, citrus, and hops. It somewhat smelt like a baseball field with the brick dust and earthy tones.

Taste is upfront with the citrus, lemon, and then it bleeds into the nice earthy, dry brick dust.

The ending flavors on this brew just coat your mouth with an insanely bitter taste for a saison. It's after taste lingers for a damn long time. Very creamy on the mouthfeel, or at least more than what I was expecting.

Another great beer from Fantome. Maybe my least favorite that I've had by them so far, but a B+ isn't bad at all. (855 characters)

750mL bottle served into a tulip glass

Pours a murky apricot color. More accurately, it has the color of an apricot and it is also murky from yeast that was free to flow from the bottom of the bottle out into my glass (and not, as you may have been led to believe by my previous sentence's construction, an apricot that is itself murky). The egg white head sits at a little greater than one finger. Tremendous retention. It's been five minutes or so and the foam shows no signs of dispersing. It would score even higher if it wasn't yeast-dreggy.

The aroma comes off as so bone-dry and hoppy that it shares more similarities with a Belgian Strong Pale Ale than it does the Saison style. Lots of crisp, green hop aroma backed up by estery-sweet yeast smells and a cracker-like malt base. Some soap comes across as well. A trace amount of funk, too; not anywhere close to the usual Fantome standards. But then, nothing about this aroma indicates that this is a Fantome beer. It's the most straightforward-smelling beer of Dany's that I've had yet.

There's a lot of green bitterness up front. Unlike, though, say, a Duvel, this bitterness doesn't taste hoppy so much as it tastes vegetal. Again, there is some funk to this beer that lends a slight strawberry-meets-hay element to the finish but it is a complimentary player, a situational spot-shooter coming off the bench. This beer is trying instead to highlight it's dry malt flavor and the way its crisp bitterness and phenolic character play off of that. It's a touch too boozy for my liking, but it doesn't distract too much from what is a surprisingly focused beer.

It's a touch thicker in terms of mouthfeel than I prefer my saisons, but then I also don't prefer my saisons to be 8% ABV. Still, the relative thickness doesn't take away from the pleasingly dry, clean finish that this beer seems to be all about.

Overall, this is a fine hoppy saison. It's very well done. And really surprisingly focused, especially when you consider that this is a Fantome beer. It reminds me of an improved take on what Dupont tried to do with their Avec Les Bons Voeux. (2,115 characters)

At Manderes' Allagash tasting

A - Pours orange with no head, and slightly carbonated.

S - Biscuity, malty, light citrus.

T - Heavy citrus up front on the palate, possibly lime, with a biscuity finish.

M - Slightly sweet, yet bitter.

D - Despite 8% ABV, very refreshing. However, a little disappointed by the mouthfeel, which makes this beer a slow sipper. (361 characters)

Roughly translated, this is the "ball-buster" of all Saisons. As the votes are tallied and I sit watching the results roll in over the next few hours, I will be enjoying this entire 750ml bottle.

Served at between fridge and cellar temperature in a Chimay chalice.

A - Orangey straw yellow with a fluffy, off-white signature Fantome head. Translucent, bordering on opaque from the yummy sediment in suspension. Excellent head retention and thick, curtainy lacing. Top-class.

S - Fresh and crisp with notes of green grapes, apple skin and fermenting hay. Floral hoppiness that borders on being mildly herbal. Honeyed light malt sweetness.

T - Mild honey sweetness that's soon replaced by a geuze-like tartness that verges on being sour. Slighty acidic hoppiness is well pronounced and dominates in the middle and finish, which is fairly dry. Aftertaste is organic and yeasty. Alcohol is very well disguised. A very interesting and very forward take on the Saison style.

M - With a rise in temperature, this goes from being a bit too carbonated to just about right, and puffs up to become creamy and rolling in the mouth. Swallow is still a bit gassy, but throat coating and satisfying.

D - This is not a Saison-lover's Saison, but a hop-lovers Saison -- perhaps a good entry point to Belgians for the average American hophead. I find this beer to be very enjoyable, aside from the gassiness in the swallow. It's a bit too sharp to be sessionable, but still a smooth drinker that I will enjoy over the course of the inevitably belch-filled evening. (1,552 characters)

750ml. Murky dark orange body with a solid foamy white head that left some sheets of lace as it was consumed. Funky farmy yeast notes with a feint hoppiness. Some spice and sweetness was present as well. Bitter citric hops with some spicy and farmy flavors following them. Mild fruit notes and some sweetness. Ends on a spicy bitter finish. Solid mouthfeel and it was pretty drinkable stuff overall. An interesting brew to say the least with nice hoppy edge. (458 characters)

750ml corked and capped bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Poured a very hazy gold with a couple of fingers of white head. A touch skunky to begin (thanks green bottle), but lots of citrus and some Belgian yeast. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Dry and crisp with a bit of candi sugar sweetness. More citrus and spicy finish. Very easy drinking. Another solid beer from Fantome. (391 characters)

I picked this bottle up sometime ago. No clue how old it is, but it is dated due to the discoloration of the label. Speaking of the label, this brew is a bit perplexing... the information printed on the side would leave you to believe that this is going to be hoppy and bitter for the style. More info on that later.

750ml corked and capped bottle poured into a snifter. The cork comes out with an alarming pop but not even a single bubble of carbonation is released from suspension while the brew sits inside the bottle. This beer appears a hazy peach to orange color. Some hints of orange are seen more through the body and creamy yellow coloration along the outer edges. More than a finger lightly off-white head swells as the glass is filled. The cap very slowly recedes leaving thick finger patterns of lace sticking to the glass. Pretty solid retention from constantly rising bubbles of carbonation through the solution. A swirl brings back a finger of yellowish stained head.

The aroma of this brew seems dominated by brett. It is heavy with notes of wet leather and earth. Under that is a bit of musty aspect mixed with some notes of fruit that are caught between an initial surge of something lemony and more pear-like. As more sniffs are taken, this brew starts to get a little grassy with a touch of grain inclusion that seems a bit like straw. Some cardboard notes are evident as I enter my second glass.

The taste is very dry and earthy initially with a lot of brett flavoring. Wet leather and must are the first descriptors that come to mind mixed with some dirt, grass and light fruit indications somewhat like pear skins. As more sips are taken, possibly a faint indication of cardboard is present but I am stretching here. Hops are present, not much in the way of flavoring but more with a pleasantly contrasting bitterness to the dry earthy quality of this brew. It finishes quite dry. As more and more sips are taken, it shows off a solid balance of faint caramel grain sweetness, earthy brett, bitter hops and warming alcohol. Intertwined inside this brew at times is a readily noticeable belgian phenol quality that gets almost to the point of tasting like clove but it doesn't quite make it there (if that makes any sense?)

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Very well rounded and enjoyable but not at all what I was expecting based on the verbiage on the label. The label reads in a fashion that would lead you to believe that this is going to be quite bitter and "ball-breaking." It fails in that department overall but I guess stylistically it does faintly reach the outer ranges of IBUs for any belgian made saison I have had in recent memory. Even while being consumed at slightly colder than ideal temperature the alcohol is wide awake and not hiding at all. I probably should have shared this one with some friends but it's too late now. (2,900 characters)

Part one of Fantome tasting.

Pours 1 finger of white head. Great retention. Looks like a solid wall. Nice lace rings. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: I get a distinguished banana flavor. A lot of spice. Some clove and and coriander. A hint of barnyard, but it reminds me almost of a wheat beer. Some orange peel.

Taste: Bready malts with some caramel-like sweetness. I get a butterscotch flavor in the finish. Orange peel, coriander, and other spices. Hardly and farmhouse funk here. Wheat-beer like flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. A bit fuller bodied than I was expecting. Medium amount of carbonation. Ends a little dry and bitter.

Overall, a good Fantome to start the night out with. A lot of nice flavors blending together. I enjoyed this one. The bananas stuck out a lot. (797 characters)

Appears a murky amber toned orange with a nice white head that slowly fades into a smal white film. Seems unfiltered with some floaters dangling around in the brew. Scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is earty, musty, funky, with that Fantome saison yeast, along with bitter lemon zest and light grassiness.
Taste seems equal to the aromas with a nice sugary citrus blast standing out.
Mouthfeel is smooth, sugary, with grated lemon peel bitters hanging around the palate. (488 characters)

Poured from bottle into my New Belgium tulip. Pours nicely. Golden color with a great head that reduces to a nice level and leaves lacing

smell is fruity and slightly spicy. I thought this was supposed to be hoppy? I don't know...maybe this is a defunct bottle. Taste is very nice. Slightly fruity...banana, lemony...almost like a good hefeweizen. The aftertaste has only the slightest bit of farmhouse funk on it

Mouthfeel is light and airy. This is super easy to drink. I can see drinking this on a warm summer night...that would be perfect. Overall, I enjoyed it. Would I go out of my way to get this over some of the more readily available saisons? I don't know about that. It is very good and definitely worth trying but nothing remarkable. (747 characters)

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man.

Sampled alongside twenty other Fantôme beers.

The beer appears very hazy and light yellow hued, with a finger of white head and some decent lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings citrus, funk, yeast, and a nice potpourri of spice. Brise-BonBons is a bit funkier than most Fantôme brews. Funky citrus with spice in the flavor. Lingering funk and yeast. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a tasty saison. Recommended. (469 characters)

Appearance: clear dark orange in color with a creamy 2" head that lingers. Nice lacing develops.

Smell: muskiness, alcohol, and a bit of bitterness.

Taste: definitely wrapped in a big musky blanket, flavors such as caramel, tart green grapes, plums, green apples, and a strong spicy bitterness. Alcohol is definitely noticeable, but provides some balance.

Mouthfeel: crisp and extremely dry from start to finish. The bitterness dominates the aftertaste. Medium bodied.

Drinkability: very interesting beer that grew on me as the bottle finished. I probably could have had another glass or two in the session. (620 characters)

Served in a 1pt 9.4fl oz corked and capped bottle. The label is adorned with a fat dude, maybe sumo, uttering the words "Que veux tu casser, Noble Briseur?", whatever that means.

Pours a cloudy iced tea color with a huge head, about 4 inches worth, into my La Chouffe tulip glass. Pretty dense and sticky.

Aroma is slightly musty and sour.

Flavor is matly with hints of hops. A little bit of sourness in there as well. Pretty balanced as far as bitterness, sourness, and sweetness. Saison really isnt my favorite style but this one seems pretty good to me. Drinkability seems pretty high considering the 8% abv. Alcohol isnt even noticeable.

Nearly full bodied with a nice twang. A pretty good beer overall. Not my favorite style, but this is my favorite beer in this style. Maybe the guy on the bottle got fat from drinking this all day! (853 characters)

Cork begins to come out as soon as I pull the cap off. Pours with furious carbonation, huge head leaves decent lace. Body is a cloudy straw color. Smells kinda hoppy in a European way, with some spices. Slight barnyard characteristics.

Tastes refreshing, with tart fruits dominating, barnyard comes in at the end, with light hops. Mouthfeel is a bit more full than I am used to for Fantome. Plenty drinkable. (412 characters)

Ball Breakers? I thought I ordered the little German chocolate candies beer…And why is there a sumo wrestler on my Belgian? I’m so confused by this bottle, I am unable to follow the conversation of my peers. Where’s the fricking ghost? He must be hiding somewhere? Did the Japanese guy eat him? What the hell is going on here? Oh yeah. The beer…$18 at the Map Room btw…

The bartender pops the cork and this thing starts smoking for like seventeen minutes. By the time I pour it, I’m wondering if a Jihadist replaced my beer with red PowerAde explosive or something. Then it pours into my glass all fizzy and aromatic of Belgian yeasts and hops and I know I am safe from the Mullah’s grasp. Plenty of foam now rests over a light apricot/lemon body.

An aroma of tangerines and strong grassy hops fills the air. Again I am surprised by this beer. Not much Fantome farmhouse funk here…The ghost has left the barnyard.

Mild acidity and tartness are overshadowed by hop bitterness. Hmmm…weird. Not very spooky or Belgian if you ask me. Earthy and pleasant. Lovely palate. I give this an A, despite all the stress and anxiety it has caused by surprising me so much. (1,177 characters)

Only my second Fantome, the Noel was good and I've been wanting to get some more of these to try. Finally bit the bullet today and grabbed this and the Chocolate...

Golden straw color with some chill haze. Tight white head. Quickly rose to an inch and a half but settles down to a nice quarter inch cap.

Aroma definately has the typical saison notes. Spicy white pepper, corriander and cloves, some straw and grass. Funkiness comes in as well, not a dirty smell at all, a "clean" funk, very Belgian like in this regard.

Taste is pretty amazing, its all over the place and what I expect from Fantome. Starts out funky with some earthy sourness. Then a bit of tartness comes in (not like a lambic, this is subdued). A strong malty backbone, almost toasted, carries this one through. When it was colder more of the corriander and pepper spices were evident but as it warms more of the pasture, barnyard funkiness lingers on with some alkaline notes. Finish is dry in either case and has a chalky bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. I usually expect a thinner mouthfeel from this style but this one is stepped up a bit. Initially carbonation made this one really crisp but the warmth makes it fuller in the body as it slides down the tongue. Flavor and bitterness really linger allowing the funk to really hang in there.

Good drinkability. Not a sipper but still too heavy to really put down quickly. This was as expected and hits the spot when the farmhouse flavors are desired. There is a ton in the flavor but doesn't seem to ever overdo it in any one aspect, nicely done. (1,590 characters)

Bottle courtesy of Darrell at the recent Fantome mega-tasting. Served in a Fantome tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice golden color with a bit of an apricot hue. Nice white head with some ringy lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a good dosing of lemon and citrus plus a bit of light earth. Mild acidity to the flavor along with lemon and citrus. Almost like a Saison d'Erezee Ete-light. Light body with great carbonation. Winner all around. (459 characters)

The front label on this green bomber of this Fantôme did not feature the signature ghost. Instead a Sumo wrestler speaking French was shown. The back label did feature the ghost beside the product description. he beer pored out clear, golden, and only had a medium sized head despite using a Duvel tulip. The lacing however was quite good. The smell was classic Saison with a mingling of the aromas of funky brettanomyces, earthy yeast, and biscuity malt. However there was also a faint whiff of hops in the air. The taste was smooth and mellow, and seemed simple at first, until I tried to peel apart the layers. The cohesive flavor was comprised of sweet, sour, bitter, and earthy elements in a delicate balance. Farmhouse origins were clear in the rough hewn oak flavor and bracing sourness. Unlike most other Saisons, there was little spiciness here. Instead of that the balance was achieved by muted but noticeable hop presence. Not as bracingly hoppy as the American interpretation of the style, but a lot drier than those beers, so the hops were more noticeable here that they otherwise would have been. Not quite a ball-breaker the label promised, but a fantastic beer anyway. Only downside was the thin body. A couple of more percent ABV would have made this that much more memorable. (1,294 characters)

Hey, it's a new Fantome to love, alongside Hiver and the regular! That said, this was a less than perfect bottle, and has to be scored as such.

Into my Bruery tulip we go... pours a nice rich, pale orange/gold with spotty head forming. A bit limp on the carbonation side leaves a bit of an uneven look. Was looking for a bit more.

But not more on the nose. Really this is right there with any great Belgian beer I've ever had. A rich, full, dense, complex sensory experience that is really awe-inspiring. Big grapefruit front leads to a delicate blend of fruits and spices and earthiness, there's hints of hop aroma trending floral and earthy, funky brett notes pumping up the grapefruit and sweaty horse, delicate esters and phenols from the yeast. A bit of toasty, bready sweetness as a layered base. Just perfect.

The taste falls a bit flat, unfortunately, and the culprit is the carbonation. Everything rolls in on the same ridiculous platter of awesomeness that the aroma is built on, but it glides to quickly over the tongue, a water-y thinness pervades and leaves one searching. The breadiness is brought out a bit more, the balance of hop bitterness to residual sweetness is grand, but it's a bit thin and underperforming what it could be, and there's a bit of a hint of cardboard at the end.

I'd still buy bottles if they were all like this, but knowing there must be others with proper carbonation out there... I feel comfortable saying that subsequent reviews will place this in my upper echelon of personal favorites. (1,533 characters)

Split a bottle w/ BA deeplennon at Toronado for $19.75. A gold apricot hued beer topped by a loose white head tumbled from the bottle into my tulip glass. Plenty of bubbles throughout the beer and a glimpse of fog in the body that gives away the bottle conditioning. The smell is dry and complex, lots of wild yeast aroma, herbal and fruity, and the flavor is more of the same, though admittedly a bit less complex. The malts really blossom over the course of a half hour as the brew warms up. Sweet presence up front with some light fruit character gives way to an herbal, nutty, dry finish that also carries a nice dose of tartness, so exclusive to the saison style. The mouthfeel was a bit too explosive, as the beer foamed immediately upon entering the mouth and was not able to keep its form... this seemed to ease up though as it decanted in the glass.

A beer very much enjoyed. (887 characters)
