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

Beer pours a hazy yellow with great head retention. Nice thick rings of lacing.

Scent comprised of white pepper, corriander and overall strong herbal scent.

Tastes begins with lemon and moves to a tart herbal and white pepper finish.

Very lively mouthfeel. Medium to lighter bodied.

Absolutely exemplary take on the style. Unique herbal character without stressing the point.

Poured from the bottle a murky peach-orange with two fingers of off-white head. Light wet lacing left behind.

Aroma of cardamon, chili powder, barnyard funk, clove, light apple and earthy yeast notes.

The taste opens with the cardamon and clove notes along with apple, lemon, earthy yeast and barnyard funk.

Medium bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation.

I really liked this one but didn't love it. The chili powder and cardamon notes in the aroma was just a bit too odd for me.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Looks like a pilsner apart from the strong soapy head and lacing.

Light breadiness, orange peel and zesty spice.

The base beer is light and unobtrusive but Fantome has added it's secret dose of magic to make this beer exceptional. I don't know what they did but it works (I swear I taste cannabis).

Mouthfeel light, ABV controlled.

Sessionable beer that seems simple and reserved but under close inspection is a complex and distinct beer.

Corked and capped 750 ml from Tipples with "Best Before 2018" printed on the label. Pours slightly hazy golden colored with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is funky barnyard, some spices--cinnamon, clove, coriander--and a really interesting floral note that differentiates it substantially from the regular Saison. Flavor is spicy, very big on the cloves with barnyard funk lingering, lots of yeasty goodness, hay, more spice. Light to medium bodied with some wheaty sweetness and medium plus carbonation. An interesting take on the style with a very unique spice note.

Pours a cloudy but radiant ochre with one finger thick eggshell colored head. Settles slowly with sparse rings left on the glass. Smell: cardamom, orange peel, snappy grain, bready and light caramel in the back. Taste: fleeting caramel candy, nectarine, clove, orange peel, then a grainy sweet and note of blue cheese section, before finishing with a blast of coriander and a minty pop. Medium bodied, creamy but relaxed carbonation. A lot going on but pretty harmonious.
