4.11/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Hazy, light brown, full off white head, receding to thin ring. Little to no lacing.

Aroma - Saison through and through. Lemon, wheat, horse blanket.

Taste - Smoke, lemon, yeast, orange peel, horse blanket, complex and good.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation, light bodied, dry.

Overall - Surprisingly smoky. Not terrible, it's just not what I was looking for/expecting. It's a classic saison in the other senses. Definitely try it out.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From 750 mL bottle to Mikasa tulip glass

A: The brew appears a color somewhere between apricot and leather, opaque and forms a frothy, cavernous 2-inch head. Patchy lacing is everywhere.

S: Horse-blanket, barnyard funk, right up front, typical of Fantome. Smoky, woody. Grassy snap lingers at the edge of the bouquet, with a smidge of alcohol.

T: Layered and complex, the smokey, funky aspects hold subtle notes of unripe fruit and dry grass. Malty sweetness just barely pushes back strong tones of smoke and leather. A distinct hop snap dries the palate , leading to short, dry finish.

M: Medium-to-full bodies, but ample carbonation adds levity.

Fantome and Jolly Pumpkin are my go-to breweries when I feel like I've drank too many beers. Off-centered style that almost always work.
