A - Pours a murky dark honeycomb colour with a nice off white head that laces well.

S - Belgian yeast and spice

T - Up front some noticeable spice followed by some sweetness and a spicy bitter finish

M - Medium to full body with medium carbonation.

.O - A little sweet for me. But the spice works well despite. Another very good offering from Fantome

This is the best beer I've had from Fantome. It is very sweet. Almost honey like. By far the sweetest Saison I have ever had. It's very drinkable, and I enjoyed it. I would drink another one but, wouldn't seek it out.

Shared with friends a 2010 bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A - Clear, fancy honey colored, delicate carbonation, little lacing.
S - Wildflower honey, lemon rime rubbed in your hands, a lasting gentle funk to it.
T - Gentle lemon, blood orange in the front, honeycomb rides the middle, clean yet lightly sweet finish lingers while.
M - A touch thick (age) beautiful feel throughout, carbonation is low so body ensues, lite tartness cleans it all up.
O - The age on this had wonderful benefits, the honey vs. lemon. The carbonation settled down.
The developing sweetness were all a treat.

Cheers all

An exceptional, full flavoured Saison.

aroma: musky sherbet, ripe citrus with some tartness and slight spice.

taste: grapefruit, apricots, wine, sherbet, malt, spices, slight lemon, slight marmalade with pepper and overall a pleasant tartness

excellent drinking beer with lots going on and alcohol hidden well. Very nice to share.

On tap at Monk's, Philly, PA.

This keg must've been jostled a bit. One of the dirtiest looking beers I've ever seen, brownish-olive color, completely murky/muddy/opaque, like a glass of mud. There was a small off-white head on top, which retained well and laced the glass. In the aroma, bready yeast and a medley of overripe fruits, toasted grains. There was a bit of tartness to this one, lightly soured wheat, toasted grains, notes of pear and peach, white wine, lemon zest, herbal spice. Despite the ugly appearance--which, again, I'm attributing to the keg being jostled and just tapped--this was a pretty tasty brew. Medium body, moderate carb, mouthfeel was dry and slightly prickly. A good beer overall.
