Bottle shared with MrKennedy and danieelol. Reviewed from notes.

Super hazed milky apricot with a moderate white head that abates to a minimal film and collar.

Ultra sharp garden mulch and bright citrus, mainly orange and grapefruit. Intensely untamed and complex floral notes. Crazy definition to the aromas overall.

Similar. Reeds, apricot, ornage rind and wild spicy floral notes.

Medium body with dusty carbonation and a moderately dry, tart finish.

Throughly enjoyable but awesomely messed up beer. In other words, more or less entirely to the Fantome script.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Served in a Russian River tulip at Ryan's end of the world tasting.

A - White, ample, foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and a few specks of lace. Hazy white peach flesh body.

S - Initially heavy with dank marijuana, herbs, and perhaps a touch of skunk - I shudder to think what Dany 'dry-hopped' this with. However, as it warms it opens up and fills out with some nice Saison malt flavors, evoking pear, tropical fruits, and a bit of hand lotion. Really crazy and surprisingly enjoyable.

T - The taste is a bit more stock Saison - pale malts, peppery farmhouse yeast, apple skins, stone fruits, a bit of hand lotion. There isn't really the crazy herbal and dank flavor from the aroma - perhaps a faint hint in the finish.

M - Pleasant carbonation, medium body, lightly grainy texture, and a dry finish. If this is really 7%, there's no trace of it - I've given up on trusting Fantôme ABVs to be honest.

D - I enjoyed this, although the aroma is quite odd. Thankfully it's supported by a base Saison that is solid, enjoyable, and could be consumed in volume. Liked this a tiny bit more than Santé 16!

Pour is a very hazy light orange with creamy white head. Nose is very marijuana like, specifically the aroma given off from nugs in a vaporizer. Also notes of cream up from and some juicy citrus in back. Taste is good, mashed cream and a touch of mint with a fair bit of orange citrus, fleshy, in back. Body is decent, full bodied and crisp highly carbonated finish and fairly dry.

Poured into a tulip. A bit of light foaming up from the bottle.

3.5 A: Murky dark yellow color. One and a half fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a bit below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: This smells a little bit like Sante 12 in that it has a lime fruitiness apparent. It isn't as strong in this year's version though. Lemon is right up there with the lime and apple is underneath. Hay, yeast, rotting wood, forest after a rain, and a bit of wildflower. Mild, well received bready sweetness. Very pleasant with a good mix of fruitiness and funk.

4.5 T: This tastes great! Super complex with well integrated flavors. Lemon, lime, apple fruits again. Wildflowers are much more prominent in the taste. Quite floral actually, much more than the nose suggests. Hay, rotting wood funk, wet outdoors, a bit of basement, and earthy dirtiness. Really well balanced overall with just enough sweetness to complement the floral and herbal notes.

4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. The only thing I'd like would be some spritziness in the carboantion. Nice creaminess though.

4.0 D: Very tasty brew. Fantome is the king of saisons. Even HF can't compete.

Bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012

A pale golden color with a white head. The amount of tropical fruit on the nose is just insane (and wonderful). Great guava and passion fruit (to name a few) along with some pale malt and yeast. The flavor is somewhat sweet, but that is in part due to the intense fruit character of the beer. Excellent tropical fruit with a touch of citrus. Some notes of yeast and grass, lightly earthy as well.

Bottle pour courtesy of DarthKostrizer at Woodshop 7 held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a murky, turbid light orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, funk, spice, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a slight tart fruity flavor as well. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Cloudy light gold/yellow....minimal head if any. Aroma of some fruit...tart fruit. Big fruit, sour fruit, some barnyard.. modest carbonation. Fun and funky. Notes of yeast, citrus, orange juice. Very tasty and flavorful...could easily drink a big bottle, easy to drink, delicious oveall.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light funky ester, semi-sweet rustic malt notes with light refreshing zesty hops notes. Taste is quite refreshing with zesty notes and light funky ester with a semi-sweet rustic Belgian malt backbone. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and great carbonation with no apparent carbonation. This has to be considered as a hit for the brewery which is not known for consistency.
