Slightly bronze golden, not much head. Heavy coriander on the nose. Taste shows some black pepper and more coriander, funky sour.

8oz pour on tap at THG.

A: Dark, slightly opaque, golden iced-tea amber with a thin cap of off-white foam.
S: Musty nose with damp basement funk, a kiss of golden fruit, and subtle earthy/peppery spice. Musty overall.
T: There's definitely the characteristic fantome yeast flavor with a clean, slightly medicinal, bitterness mixed with mushroomy funk. There are notes of wheat up front, along with a subtle kiss of acid. I get a subtle honey sweetness with touch of soft fruit. Honey lingers in the aftertaste. Mushroom funk really sticks out with a damp basement quality. Peppery spice and a touch of coriander throughout. Tiny hint of stone fruit in the finish. Hint of bandaid, but mostly mushroomy.
M: Medium body, drying mouthfeeel, with a lingering earthy bitterness and splashy tingly carbonation.
O: A nice funky, musty, saison. Great to have a fantome beer on tap for a change.

Pours the color and clarity of honey with a thin, consistent skim across the surface. Nose expresses notes of honey and tropical fruit. Taste follows nose with the merest hint of pepper added in. Mouthfeel is light in body with a watery consistency and an even carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer; however, it was served a bit cold. A warmer temp might open things up a little more.

I bought Fantome Del Rey from the Jester King Brewery in Austin, Texas. They typically feature the best of Farmhouse Ales, Wild American Ales, and other styles, from around the world, in addition to their own items. I thought this one was very nice, tasty and refreshing. In the case of Fantome Del Rey it is not allowed to sell in Texas without Brasserie Fantome having to pay for expensive local licensing fees. Well, Jester King stepped in and sold it as its own. Thank you, Jester King, for bringing the best of Belgium to Texas once again.

Look: Amber, apple juice colored, with a thick white head.

Aroma: The aroma is pretty nice. It’s sweet, yeasty, and fruity.

Taste: It's sweet, tart, honey, yeasty/funky, bready, fruits, pineapple, orange, lemon green apple, overall a complex inviting aroma and taste.

Feel: medium mouthfeel, nicely carbonated, refreshing.

Pours a slightly murky orange with a tiny white head. Smells very sour with a touch of malty, sugary goodness. Taste was deceptively sweeter than expected, with a nice light tartness. Tastes like a honey glazed melting pot of fruits. Feel is medium with decent carbonation, a touch acidic, and pretty smooth. Overall, this was a unique beer to say the least, and very good overall. Cheers!
