DCon shared this one w/ me at Wolf Public House.
Poured from 750ml bottle into New Belgium snifter.

Aroma: Honey sweetness, light cereal grain, subtle spiciness, some floral hops, and a bit of lemon zest. Aroma is a bit reserved compared to other saison's I've had.

Appearance: Very hazy, golden-orange body. Thick, white, persistent head of foam. Nice lacing.

Flavor: Spicy Belgian yeast aroma, some bretty funk, wheat ale sweetness appears toward the end. Then, a very subtle bitterness.

Mouthfeel: High, crisp carbonation. Full body--especially for style.

Overall: While a bit sweeter than what I'd like to taste in this style, I'd say it was a decent effort by Fantome. Definitely a new twist on the saison!

Shared a 1 PT 9.4 FL OZ bottle of this brew w/ mdvatab from 33 Wine Bar & Tap House in Lafayette Square (St. Louis), MO for $15.83. Poured from the Green, Corked&Capped Bottle w/ a sumo wrestler saying “Que veux tu casser, Noble Briseur?” on the front into a 0,47l New Belgium "Oversized Snifter" Glass and has no freshness date on the bottle.

Aroma- Has a good floral hop aroma and light spices throughout. Medium fruity background but no sign of any acidity or sour qualities.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that is frothy and keeps for good time. The body is a pale orange color, cloudy, and leaves good Belgian typical lacing on the glass.

Flavor- Has a extreme dominance of spices and yeast in this brew. No tart or sour character here (which am bummed out about) but there is a light orange and citrus taste coming from the hop I'm assuming. Bitterness level is low and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Spicy, and then once again has no signs of tartness or sour qualities. Spice and a good hop character are left on the palate.

Overall Impression- While having many Saisons this summer, they ALL had some sort of sour/tart quality in the taste and mouthfeel. While this one does not, I am not going to bash this brew because of the lack of this. A very refreshing beer and had good characteristics still with the fruit and spicy tastes. Will be checking this one off my Fantôme check-list!

Bottle provided by LSUPT. You're always finding a way to hit my wants Alex, thanks.

Split with my girlfriend in 2 Fantome tulips.

It pours a hay-like yellow with a creamy white head on top. Carbonation swirls around everywhere in this brew. Tiny legs of lace are left on the glass.

Smell is of slight alfalfa, brick dust, citrus, and hops. It somewhat smelt like a baseball field with the brick dust and earthy tones.

Taste is upfront with the citrus, lemon, and then it bleeds into the nice earthy, dry brick dust.

The ending flavors on this brew just coat your mouth with an insanely bitter taste for a saison. It's after taste lingers for a damn long time. Very creamy on the mouthfeel, or at least more than what I was expecting.

Another great beer from Fantome. Maybe my least favorite that I've had by them so far, but a B+ isn't bad at all.

not what i was expecting, but fun nevertheless. glowing orange-tinted straw color with a white head that leaves a good amount of lace. nose has a pleasant cotton candy/caramel sweet character too it that comes off brightly as well as lots of wild flower (chamomile? orange blossom?), citrusy hop goodness and lemongrass tea notes. the taste is soft, polite, flowery, citrusy, orange tree hop notes on a caramelly backbone with a touch of spice in the finish to bond everything together. minimal funk. soft and fluffy medium body. a bit of a hoppy/orange rind aftertaste, but not sticky. i've really been jonesing fantome, but i have to say, this one didn't do it. impressed as always with fantome, but jones not squashed. cheers!

Thanks to sweemzander for opening this one.

(A) Cloudy yellow that turns a bit more golden toward the top. It has a big foamy white head on it that lasts for a long while.

(S) Has a lot of citrus to it. There is a bit of mild spice. Almost has a sourness to it.

(T) What stands out the most is lemon zest. There are some spices but I can't pick out what exactly they are. Other citric notes linger and there is a faint hop aftertaste.

(M) It's a pretty thin beer and ends quite dry. Hit and gone.

(O) The bottle mentioned there were a lot of hops but it's not too big on hops. It's quite refreshing and is a drier/thinner saison.

Part one of Fantome tasting.

Pours 1 finger of white head. Great retention. Looks like a solid wall. Nice lace rings. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: I get a distinguished banana flavor. A lot of spice. Some clove and and coriander. A hint of barnyard, but it reminds me almost of a wheat beer. Some orange peel.

Taste: Bready malts with some caramel-like sweetness. I get a butterscotch flavor in the finish. Orange peel, coriander, and other spices. Hardly and farmhouse funk here. Wheat-beer like flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. A bit fuller bodied than I was expecting. Medium amount of carbonation. Ends a little dry and bitter.

Overall, a good Fantome to start the night out with. A lot of nice flavors blending together. I enjoyed this one. The bananas stuck out a lot.

Shared by Bradford and poured into a tulip. This one pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a three finger white head that settles to some sticky lace.

Real nice bitter floral hop aroma all throughout this one. A little bit buttery in the aroma with a little bit of funk. Good bitter hoppy flavors. Seems to have a little bit of sweentess in the finish here but mostly a bitter hop flavor.

The feel is light with good carbonation. A little dry. Overall prety tasty. An interesting take on a saison.

Poured into a tulip. Light orange straw color with a head about half an inch thick. This is pretty hazy.

the aroma is tart and bitter from afar. A deeper whiff gives some sweetness. There are some nice German hops in tue aroma.

The taste has some sweet bready with some candy orange. The finish is mildly bitter.

This is medium bodied with some nice soft carbonation.

This is good; It drinks like a nice Belgian pale ale.

750ml bottle - Brasserie V was changing over all of their tap lines at lunch, so we hit the bottle list

the bartender uncorked this sucker and sent the cork flying across the bar.

split; from notes

appearance: served in a belgian tulip - hazy dark golden body, layers of white foam

smell: a hint of skunk at first from that blasted green bottle - fortunately it doesnt last, or it at least fades. grain, noble hops, light funk, earth

taste: I'm not sure how I felt about this - I think I prefer the fantomes that are a bit cleaner with bright floral flavors. This guy is an ideal autumn saison with heavy notes of grain, leaves and earth, bread, cracked pepper.

mouthfeel: a touch of spice, a touch of funk, nice carbonation. no complaints

overall: good, but not my favorite fantome

Poured a corked and capped 750ml into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip.

This beer pours a hazy natural honey brown with a 3 inch cap that quickly turns into a rim around the inside of the glass mixed with soapy lacing down the sides of the glass. The head is a bit perplexing for me. Normally, Fantôme's beers have foam that lasts for days. This one is gone with in what seemed like seconds. The aroma is huge and quickly, after popping the cork, starts flowing through the room. Noticeable on the aroma is the typical Fantôme funk. Green bottle funk mixed with earthy dampness, cut grass and Belgian yeast esters. Underneath lies ripe tree fruits mixed with just a little banana. At the very back of the aroma profile lies just a bit of medicinal bitterness. The flavor profile isn't the most typical of Saisons. Up front, like all of Dany's beers, is the Fantôme funk. Light earthy tones reminiscent of damp earth and cut grass. Just of hint of must. Around all that is a plethora of fruit. Ripe pear, apple and just a bit of estery banana. Very little spice. At the back end of the flavor profile comes the bitterness. Now, unlike what the label says, this can never be classified as a bitter beer. Not really even a bitter Saison. It is bitter for Fantôme. Medicinal bitterness akin to letting a aspirin sit on your tongue just a bit to long at the very end of the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is dead on. Up front there is a nice creaminess but once you swallow a cakey dryness zaps the moisture off the palate. Perfect, but honestly, I would be disappointed if it wasn't.

When reviewing beers, I always find myself down grading a beer and its rare that I actually find myself up grading. As I review this beer, I like it more and more. Another fantastic outing by Dany Prignon.

I picked this bottle up sometime ago. No clue how old it is, but it is dated due to the discoloration of the label. Speaking of the label, this brew is a bit perplexing... the information printed on the side would leave you to believe that this is going to be hoppy and bitter for the style. More info on that later.

750ml corked and capped bottle poured into a snifter. The cork comes out with an alarming pop but not even a single bubble of carbonation is released from suspension while the brew sits inside the bottle. This beer appears a hazy peach to orange color. Some hints of orange are seen more through the body and creamy yellow coloration along the outer edges. More than a finger lightly off-white head swells as the glass is filled. The cap very slowly recedes leaving thick finger patterns of lace sticking to the glass. Pretty solid retention from constantly rising bubbles of carbonation through the solution. A swirl brings back a finger of yellowish stained head.

The aroma of this brew seems dominated by brett. It is heavy with notes of wet leather and earth. Under that is a bit of musty aspect mixed with some notes of fruit that are caught between an initial surge of something lemony and more pear-like. As more sniffs are taken, this brew starts to get a little grassy with a touch of grain inclusion that seems a bit like straw. Some cardboard notes are evident as I enter my second glass.

The taste is very dry and earthy initially with a lot of brett flavoring. Wet leather and must are the first descriptors that come to mind mixed with some dirt, grass and light fruit indications somewhat like pear skins. As more sips are taken, possibly a faint indication of cardboard is present but I am stretching here. Hops are present, not much in the way of flavoring but more with a pleasantly contrasting bitterness to the dry earthy quality of this brew. It finishes quite dry. As more and more sips are taken, it shows off a solid balance of faint caramel grain sweetness, earthy brett, bitter hops and warming alcohol. Intertwined inside this brew at times is a readily noticeable belgian phenol quality that gets almost to the point of tasting like clove but it doesn't quite make it there (if that makes any sense?)

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Very well rounded and enjoyable but not at all what I was expecting based on the verbiage on the label. The label reads in a fashion that would lead you to believe that this is going to be quite bitter and "ball-breaking." It fails in that department overall but I guess stylistically it does faintly reach the outer ranges of IBUs for any belgian made saison I have had in recent memory. Even while being consumed at slightly colder than ideal temperature the alcohol is wide awake and not hiding at all. I probably should have shared this one with some friends but it's too late now.

750ml corked and capped bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Poured a very hazy gold with a couple of fingers of white head. A touch skunky to begin (thanks green bottle), but lots of citrus and some Belgian yeast. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Dry and crisp with a bit of candi sugar sweetness. More citrus and spicy finish. Very easy drinking. Another solid beer from Fantome.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

A - Pours a very nice strong golden color with some slight orange hues to it. Nice white dense head is present that is a bit short at about 0.5 inches. It recedes at a moderate pace down to a thin mat.

S - Fresh funk. Nice grainy malt notes with some slight spice and a bit of a malt sweetness. It is pretty straight forward.

T & M - Starts off with some slight fruit sweetness. Pear and some apple. There is some nice bready malt and grain notes with a good mix of funk and a very slight tartness. The funk is tempered but very well represented. Nice Saison flavors. Seems to be almost perfect per the style description. Flavors are a bit mild and really easy to drink but still well crafted. There is some clove and some nice peppery spice to the beer as well. Mouthfeel is lighter with nice carbonation and great dry funk to finish off but with some nice sweetness.

O - Very good Saison. Delicious individual flavors that play well with each other. Fantome is definitely at the forefront of Saisons.

Pours a light fizzy head, hazy golden orange peach color.

Nose has tons of fruit and Belgian malts, light candi sugar, bit of booze, light spices, touch of funk, bit of white raisin, brown sugar, ester, Belgian yeast fruits.

Taste has some esters to start, bit of booze, semi sweet with a bit of candi sugar, light spices, hint of anise, light fruit and citrus, white raisin, hints of aged hops, a nice light funk, saison, Belgian malts, spicy and tingly.

Mouth is med to heavier bodied, lots of carbonation.

Overall great, not as amazing as I expected but tasty, nice Belgian malts and hints of funk but I wish there was more, and its a bit estery.

hazed gold in the glass with a thick tight white head that sticks around for the duration.
the aroma has got a lot of noble hoppiness it's floral herbal, slightly black tea like. i also find some lemon grass here and there.
the flavor is yeast driven with cracker and touches of tropical fruit. there is a lot of flowery, berbal noble hop flavor and a moderate amount of bitterness. the malt profile is a little more up front than you usually find with a saison, with some caramel and pilsener type maltiness backing up and rounding out. not quite as funky as some other fantome offerings, but with warmth you find some hay and just a whisper of blue cheese.
the mouthfeel is medium bodied with a finely bubbled moderate carbonation.
overall an interesting take on a vaguely belgina IPA kind of beer.

Poured into a Triple Karmeleit chalice. Body is a lovely gold with a thick sudsy head that lasts forever, leaving curtains of sticky lacing on the glass. Can see the fine carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass.

Smells sweet and malty, with a bit of earthy/grassy hops, and some tropical fruit. Very pleasant.

Tastes of bready malt upfront, sweet, and fruity from the yeast, with a touch of caramel, then a nice mildly grassy/earthy hoppy finish. A little lemon zest in the finish too. Neither too sweet nor too bitter, this is just right.

The body is moderate and the carbonation is fine. This has a delightfully creamy mouthfeel, enhanced by the sugars coating the tongue.

Overall, this is a delightful saison, a bit more on the sweet side than many of the other Fantôme offerings I've tried. But I am delighted with this one. Unlike the regular Fantome saison, which is more lemony, this one is more purely about the malt, yeast, and hops. It is intended to be bitter, but it is not tasting very bitter, just a pleasant mild bitterness in the finish. Nevertheless, one might prefer this over the regular, depending on one's mood, food, or weather. I'd enjoy this especially with bread and bready courses (like pizza and pasta), or fruity desserts.

750ml. corked bottle. Hazy pale goloden colour, good head, a white cloak is always on the surface and a ring clings to wall of the glass. As usual in Fantome, tehre's some barnyard smell, weaker than in other ones. There's also lemon, grass, flowers and spices. Palate is not (to me) as bitter as the description says, rough, lemon, vanilla notes?. Another good one from Fantome, though not my favourite one.

From 06/25/11 notes. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip. Unfortunately I do not know the vintage of this bottle, but I'm pretty sure it is very old.

a - Pours a clear orange color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of heavy bready malts and fruity malts. Very sweet smelling, and a little bot of cardboard. A bit oxidized.

t - Tastes again of bready malts, sweet fruity msalts, and cardboard. I think this one is a bit past its prime.

m - Medium body and light carbonation. A little bit creamy, but undercarbonated.

o - Unfortunately I think this bottle was past it's prime. I picked it up at a store that has Belgian beers cellared back to 1991 that also had a bit of a sweet bready/cardboard taste to them, so I'm guessing this bottle is 10+ years old. Going to have to try and find a more recent bottle to re-review/update, but I'd stay away from older vintages of it.

750mL corked and capped bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden orange color. Produced a huge effervescent pure white bubbly head with good retention. Some lace. Love the color on this one.

(S)- A wonderfully dry and crisp earthy funk. Bits of lemon peel and a grassy, almost floral-like citrus.

(T)- A nice dry earthy clay quality with crisp lemon and citrus with a touch of spicy, piney hops.

(M)- A nice crisp carbonation level. A nice feel too of dry earth, lemon, and yeast. Minimal bitterness, though a much higher hopped Saison than your average one.

(D)- A great crisp and refreshing yet dry and hopped Saison for this humid and hot day. I still like their regular Saison the best still, though this is a great variation.

Bottle shared at the Santa Cruz tasting in March. Golden straw color with just absolutely ridiculous lacing. The concentric circular foam blobs are mind-boggling and I literally took pictures after my glass was empty because it was still coated in head. Aroma is tart and funky, very barnyard-esque with hay, wheat, and mild citrus. Flavor is reminiscent of banana and toffee with a divine tartness. Full and satisfying on the palate but not sweet, sticky or cloying. A fantastic beer.

750ml bottle into an Allagash glass.

A: It pours a beautiful pale gold with remarkable clarity. There is a monstrous white that hangs around for a minute and settles into a calm white sheet over the beer. I would say the re-fermentation in the bottle took off on this one as it is really effervescent. Spots of lacing line the glass in small patches.

S: The label goes into the "ball breaker" naming of the beer and the nose does not disappoint, massive aroma of floral, herbal hops. It is so floral it almost reminds me of bubble gum. There are notes of yeastiness and a bit of wheat as well.

T: I got this bottle from Belgium in December and this is the second one I have opened. Amazingly it is still really bitter and hoppy; floral, herbal and peppery. Some of the flavor hops have faded a bit, but not much. A bit of barnyard funk hangs around, but it is way in the background. There is also a touch of sweetness that hints at apples, grapes and honey, but that is quickly squashed in the super dry bitter finish.

M: Light and heavily carbonated, the feel is incredibly refreshing.

O: I love this beer, too bad I don't have more of this beer for the summer months. I have yet to be disappointed by anything that Fantome has brewed. Great beer, Cheers!

Smell: skunky, flowery, yeast, and a vanilla-like aroma.

Taste: semi sweetness, yeast, and some nice spices.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

This is a very nice saison. It is very smooth and not strong flavored, but full flavored.

Poured from bottle into my New Belgium tulip. Pours nicely. Golden color with a great head that reduces to a nice level and leaves lacing

smell is fruity and slightly spicy. I thought this was supposed to be hoppy? I don't know...maybe this is a defunct bottle. Taste is very nice. Slightly fruity...banana, lemony...almost like a good hefeweizen. The aftertaste has only the slightest bit of farmhouse funk on it

Mouthfeel is light and airy. This is super easy to drink. I can see drinking this on a warm summer night...that would be perfect. Overall, I enjoyed it. Would I go out of my way to get this over some of the more readily available saisons? I don't know about that. It is very good and definitely worth trying but nothing remarkable.
