Hazy bright, rusty orange with a soapy, off-white collar. Aromas of yeast, oranges, melon. Sweet, fruity flavor. Green apple, nectarine. A unique funky character that can only be attributed to Fantôme. Santé!

750ml green glass bottle with a pry-off crown cap over an internally housed branded cork served at Labirratorium in Madrid into a teku.

Best before end 2018. 8% ABV.

HEAD: ~3cm wide. White colour. Frothy and foamy. Retention is quite good - ~6+ minutes. Leaves no lacing as it recedes.

BODY: Vibrant orange. Translucent and transparent . Clean, with no visible yeast, lees, or sediment.

Appears well-carbonated. Lacks the usual haziness/turbidity of most Fantomes, but it's quite attractive.

AROMA: Doughy yeast. Neutral Belgian pale malts, mild floral hop character, white pepper, unidentifiable subtle spice. A kiss of tangerine peel.

Aromatic intensity is moderate.

Suggests a brilliantly balanced complex brew, albeit one that lacks the usual mind-blowing intricacy of Fantome's finest beers.

TASTE & TEXTURE: Gorgeous. Soft , smooth, and wet, with a comforting slight creaminess that blankets the palate, letting the subtle notes of lime, white pepper, and doughy saccharomyces sing. Malt backbone is bright, comprised of Belgian pale malts and possibly wheat. The teasing subtlety of the spice profile is wonderful, but I struggle to identify specific spices. Citrusy acidity. Slight smackiness on the palate. A kiss of mild clean funkiness. Juicy.

Hop profile is fruity.

Well-carbonated, light-bodied, delicate, supple. Great overall presence on the palate.

There's a nice harmony of texture and taste here. The flavour profile boasts ample subtlety, but there's always cohesion of flavour.

OVERALL: After a string of disappointments coming from Fantome (most of them in the Sante series), this beer proved a refreshing reminder of Fantome's high quality. The intricate yet subtle spicing, the bright malt profile, the guidance of the omnipresent Belgian yeast...all these elements come together to form a remarkable expression of the style that I can't help but want more of. Well worth trying at least once in spite of its high price.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with a creamy white head. Very cloudy, pretty much translucent. Almost milky. The beer sat for at least a week or two, so it might be something other than suspended yeast.

Classic Fantôme aroma. Grassy, bright citrus, chamomile, wet hay, and tropical fruit. Endlessly complex. Spicy hops and sweet honey malt.

Taste initially follows the aroma but bringing in tart lactic acid. Funky and earthy finishing with some biscuity malts. Citrusy with some hop character, perhaps fruity and spicy. Nice dry finish.

Medium carbonation but with a surprising creamy mouthfeel. Dry somewhat tannic mouthfeel.

Very complex and drinkable. Another winner from Dany!

750ml bottle poured into a matching Fantome tulip. The brew appears a clouded golden orange with a huge white froth. Some soapy suds of lace paint the entire wall of the glass.

The aroma contains notes of bright juicy limes and cereal grain sweetness. Reminescent in a strange way of fruity pebbles cereal. Some grapefruit juice quality also thrown in.

The taste is tart and fruity like limes with some bretty earth funk. A lime-like pulpy bitterness and grapefruity zest aspect have not only a fruit quality but also a firm citrus tart grasp on this brew.

This is a light bodied offering with an effervescent amount of carbonation. It is hugely crushable with little to no alcohol impact. I could drink bottle after bottle of this. The best Fantome offering I have had in a long time. Wow.
