COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tremendously delicious, textural, and fizzy county ale, bright gold colour, citric and sour, reminiscent of a good champagne or lambic but in a class all its own.
Fantôme – Golden ale, 8% alc. by volume, with a wonderfully musty and characterful aroma. There are many drinkers out there who believe this is the “Nectar of the Gods.” Certainly no other brewer makes beer like this, in Belgium or anywhere. How many beers of 8% plus offer such fresh fruitiness? A solid Belgian saison beer at its base, with an unusual overlay of fruitiness.

Bottle with thanks to MrH. Odd that I haven’t tried this one yet... Pours hazy butterscotch, large off-white head, creamy and slow to dissipate with nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is unusual, honey for sure, fruity, grassy, malt syrups? Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, spicy and somewhat smoky, caramel, grass, honey, overripe stone fruits, pepper, perhaps a bit of funk. Medium body, high carbonation.

ElManana (832) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle bought at Hopduvel, consumed at home. Pours dirty light brown, no head. Fruity smell, some yeast, berries. Taste is weard peppers, fruity, lots of spices. Not my thing.

ogreface (1388) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 27, 2015
Ködös, világosabb narancssárga színe van, habja nagyon vékony, szinte nincs is. Illat gyümölcsös, ananász, barack, szőlő, parfümös, élesztős, belgás. Ízében is jönnek a gyümölcsök, főleg az illatos szőlő és az belga élesztős, lambicos aroma, itt van már komló is rendesen és egy olyan keserű, mint amikor a szőlőmagját szétrágjuk. Van teste rendesen, apró kis buborékokkal van bőven ellátva és finoman melegít az alkohol. Utóíze, gyümölcsös, keserű és igen száraz. Nagyon finom, de ahogy kinéz... :)

Douberd (2971) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2015
(Fantôme Saison) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 8% Bright golden orange colour on the body, cloudy. Tall slightly off-white head, thin, with low retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Very fruity and fresh aroma, some grapes, berries, some floral notes. Great taste, again lots and different fruits, berries, pears, little melon, clear from yeast, some sugar. Well hidden alcohol. Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels. Nicely dry on the palate. Very good, surpassed my expectations.

Luumu (17) - , FINLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Tuoksu makea, sitruksinen, kukkainen, pihkaa. Vaahto vaalea, hillitty, katoava, pitsinen. Väri samea, kultainen. Maku makea, voikukkaa, mangoa, kevyt humala. Suutuntuma todella pehmyt, aavistuksen liian hapokas, raikas, paksu. Kokonaisuutena suositeltava olut.
