Pours out hazy orange with a big overflowing head and lots of bubbles. Smells of blue cheese and smoke. Taste has an odd bitterness with smoke and funky cheese. Body is light and effervescent. Infection?

Enjoyed from the bottle into a tulip glass, a robust dark brown colour with great lacing, very interesting aroma of dark fruits, earthy notes, with an interesting spicy melange, warming with an interesting yeast interaction. Taste is very nice, blending complexity from the masterful saison with a hard-to-pin-down spice mix, very robust and complex. Well-suited to a winter evening and a well enjoyable beer. Fantome has their saisons quite dialed in, and this doesn't disappoint, had side by side with Arthur, two very different interpretations, this has by far the darker more robust and spicy beer and in its own way was very nice.

Pours a clear copper, with a big dense white head. Aromas of smoked meats, toasted barley, and apricot. Taste is an initial flavor of peaty scotch, then some stone fruits, and finishing with a dry, grain taste. Medium mouth feel. Overall an interesting tasting saison.

Fantôme Hiver Saison pours hazy gold under a pure white, very finely bubbled 2-3” pillowy foam cap that slowly collapses to a ¼ - ½” film. It offers a mild floral, spicy fragrance with fruit – citrus with slightly over ripe fruit and light malts with a hint of barnyard. It is very dry and has an assertive hop finish. The carbonation and texture are very fine and soft. The beer is yeast driven but well balanced by the hops. Younger versions tend towards cidery while older have more lemony wine notes and the Brettanomyces gets bigger. Both are very good.

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.
