look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a very cloudy orangish yellow with a finger of fluffy white head. This beer has some good retention.

Smell: Smells like a very fruity saison. Pears and melon along with some herbal tartness. Just the right amount of sweetness to go with the other smells.

Taste: This one is good, but not as fruity as the smell would have suggested. Light and herbal with some yeast spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a lot of aggressive, tingly carbonation. The finish is quite dry.

Overall: This smells fantastic and tastes really good. I wish the melon notes came out more in the flavor, but it is still really good.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a fizzy 1 finger head with a hazy peach orange color.

Nose has nice saison like malts, light funk, light tart fruit, light floral rose like aroma, citrus, great light funky saison malts, hint of sweet malts as well, almost boozy but not quite, and that typical Fantome like yeast aroma.

Taste has nice fruits, hint of tart sour fruits, hint of lemon and citrus, nice Belgian malts with a bit of funk and saison malts and spices. bit of a floral like flowery addition as well. Dry malty finish, with lingering saison malts and spices, tart fruit, a bit floral and lemony.

Mouth is med bodied, good carb.

Overall great, another winner by Fantome. Nice malts, spices, floral flowery like flavors, nice overall blend of everything interesting.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Coppery ripe apricot with a hint of coral red. I was expecting a hue much closer to dandelion yellow, but am not disappointed in the least. In fact, the color is the best part about the appearance. I am a little let down by the clarity though; perhaps a little yeasty murk is yet to come. The golden beige cap is creamier and less airy than on most beer of this style. A good look overall.

The nose is saison-like; no surprise there. It'll be harder to describe what makes it so. A warm, earthy spiciness is its primary feature, along with an enticing herbalness. I don't believe that I can pick out the aroma of dandelions though, largely because I'm not sure what they actually smell like (I'll resist the urge to go out to my backyard and find out). Not outstanding, but pleasant enough in a rustic, farmhouse sort of way.

Three offerings--so far--are hardly enough to make such a blanket statement, but I don't believe that Brasserie Fantome brews anything other than good (or freakin' outstanding) beer. Pissenlit is solidly in the good camp. There's no way that I can pick out the various flavors so I won't even try. Again though, nothing strikes me as obviously dandelion-like. It would help if I knew what the little yellow weeds actually tasted like.

There's a bit of a toasted pale malt sweetness underlying all the yeast and spices and herbs. The potpourri that is the latter two is appealing to me and is becoming more so the more I drink. Alcohol is next to absent on the palate, another Fantome trademark. Whatever sugar is present initially says 'adieu' by the finish so that the beer ends up favoring modestly bitter and drying. Crisp doesn't apply. Refreshing does. As does delicious. As does compulsively drinkable.

A fine storm cloud of yeast has now appeared in the glass (I'm in the bottom third of the bottle) and the fascinating color is some kind of beautiful. I don't usually break out the big numbers unless there's a better than decent display of lace, but what the hell. This is great looking beer.

The body/mouthfeel is neither light and airy, nor is it full and sticky; it's somewhere in the vast middle. It does have a quality feel though and the fact that there's something less than a Belgianesque amount of carbonation doesn't detract from my enjoyment in the least. A hint of stickiness on the back end is a nice feature.

Pissenlit is French for dandelion and translates as 'pee in bed' due to the diuretic properties of the plant. I don't feel a pressing need to finish this review (and I'm not in bed anyway), but I may feel differently once milliliters 600-750 have been consumed. If Brasserie Fantome didn't exist, beer geeks would have to invent it. I love the idea of a small, talented, dedicated, quirky Belgian brewer who thinks outside the box. And I love his creations even more.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A short head of frothy white foam resides over a hazy orange body. Its very fine, natural carbonation helps it to maintain a creamy collar and lacy surface covering throughout the glass; and it leaves some minimal short-lived lace with each sip. The nose is floral, grassy and somewhat citrusy with a touch of "barnyard"; and it exhibits some fruit and a touch of sweetness as well. It's bright, interesting, and invigorating with a bit of complexity. The body is medium/light with a delicate, natural carbonation from bottle conditioning that gently caresses the palate before fading smoothly away. The flavor offers an incredible balance between lightly sweet malt and gently tart yeastiness on either side of a distinctly grassy, herbal, and floral character. It finishes dry, and a touch powdery, with a short lingering fruity-sweetish-tart malt note and some low-key herbal and delicately spicy-grassy hops. It's a really interesting beer that appears at first to be more than it is; reveals it's true self upon tasting; and then displays more complexity than it alludes to while still remaining very straightforward. It's quite drinkable, and most enticing. An impressive beer that should be on the "must have" list of any Belgian beer fan.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours up a slightly murky, dark orange body with a well-sized, foamy, white head.

Smell: Touches of sweet-scented barley mingled with notes of freshly-squeezed lemon juice, spices, juiced apples, dialed down funk, and a long midday walk near the garden section of a Home Depot.

Taste: Light base maltiness with a touch of mildly sweet toffee crumbles. While you are treated to a fruit taste of crisp, cut apples, it's the tart lemon that is the real standout for me. Lemony, lemony, lemony. Delicate spice character, though you also get a meager taste of crystallized ginger. Sure, I do get plenty of strong floral tones, but my mind leaps to lilac or chamomile instead of the humble dandelion. Though I've had dandelions in a few salads and, in one curious instance, atop a pizza, I have not found the flavor to be overly appreciable. Emerging earthy grassiness upon slight warming. Subtle funk character. Lightly acidic. Finishes perfectly dry and with a very effervescent charge of bubbles.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated - quite lively, I must say!

Drinkability: Nice work, Fantôme. An excellent, highly refreshing saison! Like the standard Fantôme Saison, this one drinks incredibly well and I find I reach the bottom of my glass at lightning speed.

So it is not everyday I get to crack a new bottle from Fantome. I was actually quite excited to try this one. I had heard some really nice things. Served chilled and poured into an oversized wine glass, this one was consumed on 09/15/2009.



Ehh on the pour. No head at all, minor bubbles on the side that quickly left and only the slightest bit of lace apparent and even that faded off quite quickly. Dull golden color without much in the way of life in it. Again not terribly impressed here. Aroma was light, small hint of tart apple, lots of grain notes and hints of light floral touches bouncing around the outside of it. But far too light for me to be really engaged. Light flavor, grape peel, flowers, hints of light grassy notes and a lightness to it that really just seemed off to me. Flat feeling on the sips as well, really just not coming across that great to me at all. Light and easy to drink, but I just did not feel really compelled to follow through on it any more, just did not hold my interest.



Overall it was ok, but I would not really have the need to go back to it again. Probably the least complex thing I have had from them by far. Not sure what it was intended to come across as but I am hoping this was not it.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before end 2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas big of lemon, pear, plum, apple, white grape, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, dandelion, hay, straw, wood, leather, light honey, toasted bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, dandelions, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, pear, plum, apple, white grape, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, dandelion, hay, straw, wood, leather, light honey, toasted bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Moderate yeast spiciness, herbal bitterness, and light tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, plum, apple, white grape, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, dandelion, hay, straw, wood, leather, toasted bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dandelions, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from /bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly sticky, and lightly grainy/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, dandelions, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle from 2003 shared by Craig/Ted. Thanks!

A: The pour is a bright orange color with a big white head that eventually settles down to a thin layer.

S: A great funk and must to the aroma with fruity citrus notes of both lemon and oranges, along with lots of floral character (as I would expect). The typical spice esters of Fantome are present as well.

T: Nice and lemony (mildly tart) up front with an intense floral quality following. Some musty and earthy funk gives this a nice "wild" character. Subtle spices fill in where they can.

M: The body is medium with a full, rolling carbonation.

D: Man, this was great. Aging Fantome beers tends to be a big toss up, but this really paid off.

I purchased this in Brussels, enjoyed chilld in a tulip shared with tenderbranson69.

The color is deep amber with subtle hazed appearance and light colored head with fine bead and good retention. The smell has a strong yeast ester that is fruity with some floral aroma and gentle malt with earthy scent and light caramel element. The feel has a slight tangy yeast and moderately high carbonation level with subtle creamy yeast texture and semi-sweet body with a light floral resinous texture with mild earthy tannin and semi-dry and warming quality in the finish.

The taste brings malt and slight yeast tanginess up front with mild medicinal edge from dandelion and subtle caramel in the malt with spicy and hint of woody accents mid palate with a somewhat tangy yeast flavor which is almost apricot with slight acidity that continues with a mild woody pungent and toasted flavor mixed with light citrus and malt balance that continues into a semi-dry finish. The impression is a very good saison while not the absolute best it is better than most with a fantome house character and the interesting dandelion addition as an extra

Served in a Sloeber tulip glass.

Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with about a finger's worth of sturdy white head that sticks around for quite a while, leaving a nice bit of lacing behind. The smell is a bit weak, but hints of spice, banana, clove, and even those dandelion flowers are all present. The taste has that spice, but then leans heavily toward a sour grapefruit, mixed with a tiny bit of bitterness and an underlying combination of grass and earth. The dry finish holds its own tartness. Though a relative love for saisons might be necessary to enjoy this brew to its fullest, its heavily moderate body helps keep the overall drinkability pretty high.

Presentation: 750 ml green magnum with a vintage date of 2003 on the front label.

Appearance: Sunrise reddish orange in a haze with a thin white lacing on top.

Smell: At first thought … Lemon Pledge. Then grassy, musty, earthy and more lemony notes come along.

Taste & Mouth Feel: Uncommonly musty and earthy with a good dry malt backing and lemony tartness. Semi-crisp and slick on the tongue. Yeasty with a crazy tart nutty flavor. Finishes with a quick pucker and more yeast.

Drinkability & Notes: Certainly one of the more interesting saisons I have tried, I ended up braising a pork roast with some of this … most excellent.

Appears a clouded golden hazed body with a bright white head forming thick above the rim of the chalice. Fine even lacing intricate appearance, fine effervescent carbonation these Belgians know how to execute. Aroma earthy herbal, pissenlit can be interpeted as Dandelion or "wet the bed" either way drinking enough of this I get the connection. Spicy yeast, a touch of mellow alcohol hidden in the biscuit pilsner malt, slight skunk nose from the green bottle but inoffensive for the most part. Flavors refreshing, spicy yeast, crisp malt sweetness with dry herbal/earthy/floral hop additions excellent saison. Funky lactic acidity works well with a hint of citrus, floral notes really bursting with barnyard, meadows, fresh cut grass. Mouthfeel is crips effervescent carbonation medium to light bodied, easy to drink with a nice tartness. Overall drinkability was incredible, a great version of Fantome that holds up with the best of any Saisons I've ever come across.

Pours a slightly clouded ruby brown with a decent light tan/crème head that kinda sticks around. This is one of the best looking saisons I have seen in a long time. Nose is funk and yeast. Flavor is fairly mild I think. But man at the end does the saison funk come back to kick you in the mouth for an aftertaste. It comes back and lingers. Mmmmm. Basically when I drink this I just think grass. Grass, grass, grass. Feel is standard I think. Not too thin, with a certain level of body. Drinkable indeed. Overall a fairly even saison and nothing too wild. Another solid Fantome production.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

A: This beer appears a very hazy yellow hue, with a smallish head that leaves some random lacing on the glass.

S: The aroma is grand, with scents of flowers, grass, grapes, leaves, earth, and vegetables.

T: The flavor follows suit, making for a complex, intriguing and enjoyable brew. The beer also has some notes of funk and citrus.

M: The feel is medium bodied, with a lingering aftertaste of grass and spice. Alcohol is well hidden.

D: This is definitely an unorthodox saison, but I quite like it. I would definitely like to get a few bottles of this for the cellar.

Big thanks to BdubleEdubleRUN for hooking me up with a bottle of this. Poured into a matching Fantome tulip, this brew appears a very attractive lightly hazed amber orange color. 2 fingers of off-white froth appears and slowly recedes to a thin film across the top.

The smell is fruity with hints of lemon mixed with cork and must. Quite a bit of earthy elements like Brett and horsey character of barnyard dryness. Across the board this is a very balanced ad enjoyable smelling brew.

The taste is lightly tangy with lemon before switching to a toasty sort of caramel grainy quality. It is earthy with barnyard flavoring expected of a saison. There are mild notes of clove and pepper mixed with musty cork and earth. Some fruit like pear or apple skins and spice. Toffee-like aftertaste includes a touch of oak.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Visually it looks low in carb but it is fizzy in the mouth/feel. Superb drinkability with well integrated/hidden alcohol. Very well balanced brew that I feel like I could drink all day without getting bored with it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Hazy light golden body. Well retained big white head.

Smell - Pale malts with a light acidity and floral character. Bretty? If it's brett, it's very mild.

Taste - Much brettier. Light tartness. Pale malts again, but much spicier. Dry in the finish with a slight sweet kick.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied and dry. Well carbonated.

Overall - I'd never peg it as dandelion, but the flavor is very nice.

From notes sampled Aug 19 2010 at Eb's
Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a smallish white head that quickly scatters. Smells earthy and herbal with a bit of a bready, sweet honey and funky edge. The flavor is like a saison but with a bit of a minty herbal edge. Bubbly dry fruity beer with a bit of tart and funk. Medium to light body with a crisp mouthfeel. Definitely a different beer, but not really to my tastes.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a soft white thin head of tiny white bubbles that breaks quickly forming a halo around the glass that leaves very little lacing, carbonation is lower than expected as well.

Aroma is interesting, it has a slight off putting aroma to it that I'll describe as grass clippings. I know this beer was made with flowers so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt that this is the way it is suppose to smell. Other than the grass I smell some tea like spices and some earthiness as well.

Beer is medium to light in body and the grassiness carries through but somehow it's not bad. It's interesting, I don't know if I would drink the whole bottle myself but it does taste like flowers smell. I would be tempted to speculate that there was a new hop in there but I believe it's the flowers. Finish is nice, drinkability is good.

11/01/05- Purchased at Plumpjack's in San Francisco, CA.

Presentation- 750ml bottle with no dating. Have had in storage for about 3/4 of a year. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance- Odd looking color for a saison. A very clouded orange, almost amber pour. Quite a large foamy head with moderate lacing.

Smell- Appropraite Fantome nasal candy. Funk for sure. Rotted lemons in a grassy field. Not a super strong stench as the regular saison that Fantome puts out. This one you have to actually sniff to get some. The other one eats through your skin.

Taste- Compared to the regualr saison, this one is much more subdued. Good tart lemon flavor with a bit of sweetness to go with the sour. Very earthy and floral tastes. Not sure what dandilions taste like, but maybe this is it? Whatever it is, it's very tasty.

Mouthfeel- Heavily carbonated approaching champagne and wine cooler quality.

Drinkability- If the bubbles would calm down this would be even better. Fairly difficult to drink the whole think due to the cabonation for someone going it solo. The taste is worth the try though.

A: poured a golden orange in color with pale yellow highlights that had a thin head and left a little bubbly lacing sticking to the glass.

S: the aroma right away was of citrus lemon oaky tart notes with bretty funk and acidic character but it did have slight underlying earthy herbal notes.

T: the taste was dominated by the citrus lemon which meshed good with oaky barrel character alongside bretty funky, slight spice, and mild earthy accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of prickly carbonation which had a sweet, funky bretty, oaky, citrusy, and mild dry finish.

D: it drank really good and has been one of my favorite fantomes that I've had. Its been tasty every single time.

Pretty nice pour. Hazy, faded golden and pale. Nice foamy head

Musty aroma, some earthy barnyard not really funky. Some nice white pepper spice and a solid yet subtle notion of sulfur.

A solid taste. The sulfur seems to be the strongest aspect, but it's really well done and blends nicely with the white pepper, some coriander and lemon. It has a crispness with a lingering funkiness that's not all that funky. More earthy.

This beer is easy drinking with nice levels of carbonation, sulfur and citrus. Still, and earthy sort of beer.

Appearance: hazy orange color with a reddish tint. A short head falls to a thick surface foam that lasts a bit.

Smell: malt sweetness, barnyard funk, and a hint of sourness provides a unique and interesting aroma.

Taste: nice malt sweetness balanced with some sour green grapes, tart green apples, some barnyard funk, yeast, hint of spice, and a mild bitterness. Alcohol is mildly noticeable here. A hint of sourness arrives at the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp from start to finish with some dryness late. Very long aftertaste as the flavors never seem to leave the mouth.

Drinkability: this beer had a great flavor profile and it was so interesting I did not want to put the glass down. Great beer.
