750ml bottle corked and capped poured into a matching Fantome glass. The brew appears amber to copper in color with a tanned cap.

This has a sort of cotton candy sweetness that sharply trends to herbal and a slight cheesy funk appeal.

This tastes sweet and fruity almost like the previously mentioned hint of cotton candy and bready malt with a dusty aftertaste and slight pulpy bitterness. Wow, this one is different.

Medium in body with ample carbonation. In drinking through this Sante lineup, you almost feel like you got these patterned and then...something completely unexpected. So strange, so Fantome.

Santé 1-19 vertical.

Hazy mahogany with a soapy, khaki hued head that coats the glass in lacing. Aromas of malt, bread, herbs, assorted spice. Brown bread with earthy character. Mineral water and basement funk, finishing dry.

Bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012

The pour is amber in color with a tall, tan head. A light tartness of lemon on the nose followed by some pepper and spicy coriander notes. Caramel sweetness is also there along with some white grape. The flavor is a touch boozy with some strong grape flavor, a hint of spice, and rather intense caramel. Not as bad as some of the series, but not as good as others, either.

From 01/07/12 notes. Big thanks to Gene (Travlr on RB) for sharing this one at the last RB tasting, always interested in trying a new Fantome beer. Poured into a tulip.

a - Pours a murky brown-orange color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of lightly sour fruits, Belgian yeast, spices, fruity malts, brett, and caramel malts. Nose is nice and lightly sour which I enjoy.

t - Tastes of sweet dark fruits, spices, Belgian yeast, nuts, caramel and toffee. Taste is not sour at all like the nose.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent Fantome beer, though I think it may have faded a bit over the years. Nose is nice and a little sour. Would try it again.

Got this rare beauty right off the hands of the brewer when I visited in September.

Appearance: Dark amber, with a compact off-white head. Looked more like a pale ale than a Saison, but it looked a lot nicer than some of the other Fantômes I've had.

Smell: Freshly cut flowers, mirabelle, coriander, brown sugar, anis, it all blended together to make sweet and spicy pot-pourri that I really enjoyed.

Taste: Full bodied, tangy and bitter, the hops seemed to really come out more in this one, and with the water he uses that probably comes out of a magic rock behind the barn, it tastes like mixing pepper flavored pop-rocks and fresh hops in a Fantôme Saison and mixing it with a little hay. One of his best I would say.
