Reviewed from notes. Swing top 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades which lingers long and yields spotty lace.

N: Smokey, rope/twine, grainy, yeasty farmhouse.

T: Follows nose with twangy and smoky yeast.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes yeasty, smoky and farmhouse peppery spice.

O: Interesting. First smoked Fantome I've ever had.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Big white head. Nice lacing. Head lasts forever.

Smell - Smokey pale malts and yeasty esters. Pale malt fruitiness.

Taste - Light smoke up front. Pale malt. Fruity esters. Slight herbal flavor in the finish. And then a kinda gross heavy smoke finish.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Gross sulfuric smokey finish.

Overall - Icky. Not much else to be said.

750ml swing-top from Etre Gourmet. Served in a tulip on the 4th of July at Jason's place.

A - White foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and specks of lace. Hazy peach flesh body. Style-appropriate and good for the ABV.

S - A very odd mixture of lemon dish soap and smoked meats. Peppery yeast, tobacco, and astringent tea-like notes. Very odd and certainly unique.

T - The taste is also a bizarre mixture of smoked meats, peppery yeast, stone fruit malts, unmalted grains, and flowery hops. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M - Medium-full body with good heft for the listed 8%. Dry, but chewy. Lower carbonation makes things a tad watery and there's some alcohol warmth in the finish.

D - This is one of those perplexing Fantôme offerings, and unfortunately not in a good way. The odd smoke character clashes and distracts from the flavors I do enjoy. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces of this. Pretty disappointing; even more so than Extra Sour Dark.
