Found in Dany Prignon's box of oddities he found when I happened to visit the brewery, all he said about it was "This one was really good". The label was showing significant signs of decay and I was a bit worried about carbonation but Pop! it went and it poured out sparkling as if it just came out of the barnhouse brewery.

Appearance: Distinctly murky saison-ish peach, the head was thick and compact, almost looked like an Orval there for a second...

Smell: As weird as any Fantôme I've ever had...Armpits, cat urine, a wet sack of potatoes that started to spud, and a whole slew of funky aromas that decorum prohibits me to discuss in any great length here.

Taste: As old as it was, it still had plenty of legs body-wise as well as carbonation is concerned, with a very strong yeasty, wet bread with herbs texture, a strange acidity that mixed with the mineral palate to give a truely original mouthfeel. Seemed well attenuated by the fact that it didn't register any sweetness at all, but then again alcohol was also a complete non-factor, even at a whopping 10%.
