Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Deep dark red-brown. Never loses its head as it sits. Blueberry pie. Flowers. Fruity crazy unique yeast. Like a breeze blowing through a field of orchid and hibiscus. Distinctive.

Oakes (11779) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Reddish-brown colour. Cloudy. Liquoricey with crazy spice nose. Light pear notes, again very assertive liquorice/anise, nutmeg and spice. Probably a little too much, even for Fantome.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. The hazy, murky, dark auburn body is crowned by a foamy, cream colored head. Sudsy, spotty lacing marks the glass in typical Fantôme fashion. The aroma displays a lightly caramelized, slightly grainy malt base, with the signature minty yeast funk and notes of wildflowers. Flavors continue the theme, with a musty, spicy, minty yeast permeating the grainy background, with wild herbs and spices lending further complexity. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated, it finishes dry and lightly tart. Very good overall, but not the best effort from this great brewery.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Bottle @ ORL throwdown. Dark hazy amber with a smallish cream head.The Fantome mint hit comes strong with this on the nose, funky brett, some hay, tart, a little spiciness. Tart and sour in the mouth, some maltiness, and grassy hay hints. Dry and tart finish. Quite nice!

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a very murky brown. Aroma is fruity and spicy, some malty sweetness underneath. Flavor is noticeably sour and slightly astringent.

OTown Throwdown. Dark caramel pour with virtually no head. Sour candi apple aroma, with belgian funk. Taste is sweet candi apple, sour dry and yeasty. Strange but fun saison.
