Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Gusher! I prepared by getting a glass ready and opening in the sink, but this one geysered out and I lost half the bottle before getting the glass in place. Once things calmed down, this poured a quite cloudy brownish orange, appropriate for pumpkin with a huge light tan head that dissipated to a thin film with light lacing. Aroma spicy, dominated by sweet potato and winter squash, lightly earthy and very autumnal. Flavor starts with light squash, saison yeast, light stone fruit, brett, mildly earthy but slightly sweet, then gets incredibly astringent, finishing with pure bitterness with little flavor. Medium bodied with active carbonation. I looked forward to what Fantome could do with a pumpkin ale and the first part of the taste was mild, but interesting in a earthy farmhouse way. The finish was too astringent, like an aspirin, overwhelming the interesting vegetable flavors. Not a fresh bottle, but stored in a cooler and labeled as good through 2015. This was a miss for me from an interesting brewery that usually pleases.

A good amount of burnt tire flavor on this beer with a slight pumpkin sweetness. Leather and burnt rubber are the headliners in this beer. Not drinkable.

Pours a hazy darker amber with thick soapy white head that settles to a thin ring with a few blobs of lace down the glass. Smell: peach, leather, herbal and spicy, lots of pale malt in the back with some woodsy/fruity brett-ish notes. Taste: juicy peach, caramel, triple levels of pale malt, spicy hopping. Medium bodied, chill carbonation, tons of sweet but slightly tart peach everywhere in this one. As a Fantome + malt focus, perfect for a late fall seasonal, and still delicious in summer.
