Or at it seems like it could be...the rating is off of what I think it was to be based on everything BUT taste.
Bottle bought at the Belmont station in Portland Oregon. No date found or available when asked. So, buyer beware! I'm sure I paid too much for but hey, it's Fantome!
The taste straight kills it! Not in a good way at all either. Dooky! Pure funk aftertaste lingers like when your friend drops a giant deuce in your bathroom!
Too bad because its Fantome and they make great beers!
Wait... The label has a giant sumo wrestler on it!
I guess I can't say I wasn't warned.

Picked this up a long while back. 2011 vintage.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a two finger white head that fades to leave a creamy half finger blanket with light lacing. Quite nice.

S - Aromas of light green apples, lemons, floral fields, nice light funk. Super super appealing.

T - Taste is not nearly as good as the nose. Showing signs of age big time. Sweeter malts, the citrus is there but replaced by harsher alcohol. Fruits way off in the distance. Quite the opposite of the nose.

M - Mouthfeel is spot on for the style, nicely carbonated.

O - Overall, huge let down. So much promise to this only the have the taste fall flat. Ugh.

Poured from bottle into proper Fantome tulip. Purchased at Henlopen Oysterhouse in Rehoboth. Golden, almost orange color with a fair amount of carbonation. Huuge fantome aroma...not surprising, but lots of noble hop presence. Flavor of slightly smoky biscuit malt, lots of noble hop, and classic fantome saison yeast. Its a bit sweet but finishes really dry - almost perfectly done for the style. Overall, its not my favorite Fantome but still wish I had more! As always, Fantome is delicious.
