Usual 750 ml corked and capped bottle. Hazy golden orange, nice white head. Hoppy peppery aroma. Big malty flavors with plenty of hop flavor and bitterness. Usual big malty mouthfeel from Fantome. I detect Styrian Golding hops in use here. Malty hoppy finish, with those flavor hops really shining through. Its got to be Styrians. Rather straightforward and not as unusual as other Fantomes.

Draught @ Monks: This one poured a somewhat cloudy, lighter amber color. There was some white head on it, but not much. The nose was interesting: it contained some floral and spice notes, as well as being slightly sour and musty. The taste was also very interesting, There were some sour notes, as well as some lighter fruit flavors. Also some hopiness to it. Very interesting and quite refreshing!

I was happy to find this one still available a few days after the Blind tiger's saison event. Gotta love Fantome on tap at the Tiger! Anyway, this one poured a cloudy dull golden, supporting a white head and leaving fine, wispy lacing. Nose was multi-faceted, pepper, must, barnyard, earth.
This one hit me as being quite sour.certaintly notions of lambic running around in this concoction. Sort of a lactic, yeasty, wheaty, saisony, Belgian taste missile. Nice peppery spice thing also going on. Tasty, complex, intriguing, not a beer for everybody, but I loved it. Viva Fantome!

peachy and cloudy with loose clumpy foam floating there, calling out to me. smells of the standard fantome horse blanket with a welcome citrus tinge, black pepper and hints of fresh-cut salami.

divinely light and smooth saison/lambic, with the accent lifted off the sourness in favor of a chewy, botanical hoppiness rounding out the experience. aggressively hopped for a belgian. and mysteriously, this experimental brew yields such a refreshing and light body for something so full of flavor and alcohol.

awesome, bubbly, drinkable. another great entry from fantome, one that succeeds in its bizarre nature.
