Bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012

The pour is amber in color with a tall, tan head. A light tartness of lemon on the nose followed by some pepper and spicy coriander notes. Caramel sweetness is also there along with some white grape. The flavor is a touch boozy with some strong grape flavor, a hint of spice, and rather intense caramel. Not as bad as some of the series, but not as good as others, either.

From 01/07/12 notes. Big thanks to Gene (Travlr on RB) for sharing this one at the last RB tasting, always interested in trying a new Fantome beer. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a murky brown-orange color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of lightly sour fruits, Belgian yeast, spices, fruity malts, brett, and caramel malts. Nose is nice and lightly sour which I enjoy.

t - Tastes of sweet dark fruits, spices, Belgian yeast, nuts, caramel and toffee. Taste is not sour at all like the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent Fantome beer, though I think it may have faded a bit over the years. Nose is nice and a little sour. Would try it again.

Got this rare beauty right off the hands of the brewer when I visited in September.

Appearance: Dark amber, with a compact off-white head. Looked more like a pale ale than a Saison, but it looked a lot nicer than some of the other Fantômes I've had.

Smell: Freshly cut flowers, mirabelle, coriander, brown sugar, anis, it all blended together to make sweet and spicy pot-pourri that I really enjoyed.

Taste: Full bodied, tangy and bitter, the hops seemed to really come out more in this one, and with the water he uses that probably comes out of a magic rock behind the barn, it tastes like mixing pepper flavored pop-rocks and fresh hops in a Fantôme Saison and mixing it with a little hay. One of his best I would say.
