KansaiBeerLvrs (4661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 12, 2016
At Fofa. A semi-opaque gold and a massive foamy head. It has a great aroma of orange blossoms and honey. Medium to full bodied with a soft round carbonation. The flavor evoked a tart orange creamsicle, zest, plus light malts. Good shit

Pours murky dark amber color with almost no head. Dark fruit and yeast aroma with some Fantome funk. Sour dark fruit flavor with musty, earthy, and funky notes. Medium body with no carbonation.

bluejacket74 (1848) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2016
750 ml capped and corked bottle, label says best before end 2017. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy brown color with pretty much no head whatsoever. No lacing, either. Aroma is subtle at first but gets stronger as the beer warms, it smells like red apples, caramel and woodiness. Luckily the flavors are stronger in comparison to the aroma. It tastes like red apple, cherries, caramel, vinegar, stone fruit, earthiness, oak and some light spiciness. The tartness is subtle. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, with very low carbonation. I thought this was OK overall, it’s not my favorite Fantôme brew but still an interesting one. I’d like to try a different batch of this in the future.

Holmen1 (4891) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2016
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal 2.påskedag: lett uklar rødlig kobber nesten uten skum - dette lover ikke helt godt. Aroma av godt modne bær og tørket kamille. Smaken gir meg assosiasjoner til eplecider, selv om den har et visst krydderpreg. Flat munmfølelse. Kort og tynn. En skuffelse.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
750 ml capped and corked green bottle, as Fantôme été, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavangee. ABV is 8%. Cloudy brown colour, some yeast floaties, low off-white head. Moderate aroma of farmhouse and ripe berries, hints of oak. Very moderate carbonation. The moderately sour flavour has notes of berries, brettanomyces, oak and cider. Very moderate hops. Not my favourite Fantôme beer this one.

hopdog (11596) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2016
750ml bottle - well aged. Amber color with an averaged sized head. Fruity, some earthiness, wood and a lighter tart finish. Very drinkable and aged nicely.

Vighals (3255) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2016
Brun tåkete med lavt beige som forsvinner helt. Lukter noe nøtter og sure kirsebær. Smaker surt, nesten beskt i starten, noe mer fruktig utover. Noe krydder, pepperig og noe nøtter. Merkelig øl.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with no real head. Nice vinegar and caramel malt notes. Nice tartness with vinous lowlights. Good body and mouthfeel.

ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2015
750 mL bottle. Clear amber body without much of a head. Very thin collar. Smell is like spiced apple cider. Some vinegar. Taste is lightly tart. Vinegar tartness. Strong cherry and dark fruit sugars. Finish is a little apple-y. Very low carbonation. Medium heavy. Not what I expected at all. Pretty tasty beer, but heavier and sweeter than I thought.

corkyrory66 (1425) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2015
Saison brassée avec des épices, dixit le brasseur, et il le dit en anglais parce qu’il envoie sa bière aux Etats-Unis d’Amérique, sans complexe et sans fioritures … Niveau abv de 8 %, pour 75 cl de malheur, valables jusqu’en fin 2017 (on se demande comment !!). Couleur roux caramel vraiment très vilain, clarté nette. Bulles fines par dizaines en colonne centrale, lentes. Mousse = zéro absolu. Aucune mousse, aussi lisse qu’un vin ou un lambic de la cruche en terre à Pépé (je n’ai pas dit Pipi …). Arômes de vinaigre de vin (je suis gentil..), prune violette blette (Mariette...), pain d’épice vieux, girofle de premier prix. 1ère bouche liquide au mélange malt/vinaigre blanc. Arrière-bouche sur vinaigre et … je ne sais quoi. 2ème vinaigre et quelques vagues épices. Arrière-bouche juste fraîche, mais sans aucune qualité. 3ème plate, quasi insipide. Arrière-bouche valant au titre de l’eau … Longueur avec du fade, du banal, des allures de « Lambic aux Marolles »… Finale de désolation. CONCLUSION : ne cherchez plus la bière « rousse à zéro mousse » … Fantôme l’a inventée pour vous !!!! Vilaine couleur, vilaines odeurs, vilaines saveurs … La totale donc, et un comble de mauvais goût.
