man, nothing better than new beer from fantome, i love what they do, and it seems all to rare to have new ones come around. this is a treat, a collaboration with some gypsy operation i have never heard of before if i understand it right, and another curious and unspecified saison right at 8% abv, which seems to be the standard for fantome beers. this is done with a bunch of botanicals and spices apparently, although they never tell you which ones. i could almost guarantee there is chamomile in this, it has that herbal bitterness and almost medicinal tea element in the nose and in the center of the flavor, other things like jasmine, lemongrass, white pepper, and even sage or something come out, really clever, springy, and delicious. i didnt expect the beer to be as dark as it is, more brassy than pale, clear for the first half of the bottle, and incredibly lively on the head, and the cork pops loudly when we open the bottle. minerals, familiar fantome green bottle funky oxidation, the classic and vibrant saison yeast they use, and these herbs that tend toward bitterness at the end. peppery, herbal, fresh but mature, this is another beautiful and intriguing saison from fantome thats worth every penny! carbonation is amazing, the recipe is clever, and i like everything about it!

Poured from an undated 750 ml bottle into the test glass.
A - Clear copper backdrop, marauding carbonation piles skyward in a 3" froth.
S - White pepper, Hibiscus, Rose pedal, honey comb, as with other Fantome offerings there is a bit of astringent in the nose.
T - Complex in the spice category, cinnamon, rose, again the white pepper, malts are full and short at the same time. A bit yeasty, but quickly wiped out by the spices.
M - Medium in texture, absolutely pops on the palate, semi sweet start leads immediately to a garden of texture, end is complete and a bit abrupt. Linger is herbal and refreshing.
O - What a delight, Fantome, hit this one straight down the middle, then the spice and herbals added quite a complexity.
Worth every effort to seek out.

Bottle into matching Fantome glass appears a hazy copper with white head.

Aroma is crazy like flowers, cedar, cinnamon and all sorts of mystery.

Taste has a chai tea or sahti sorta influence with the previously mentioned cedar/cinnamon. Its also herbal.

Medium to light in body, this is just so different its hard to figure out if i even enjoy it. As I work my way through the bottle, I start to get weird feeling. Not in a sense of wow im getting drunk but more like im high or having an allergic reaction to this....proceed with caution lol
