Steve_0 (2882) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at Scott’s Summer Saison tasting 2014. Pour is lightly hazy orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Dusty, funky, herbal, orange juice, bready and grainy aroma. Taste is tangy, orange juice, lemons, stone fruit, basil and herbs with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Decent stuff.

Bottle @ Doodler. A little murky orange appearance with a thin tan head. Fairly spicy and herbal nose with some orange and citrus. Somewhat tart flavor with lemon juice, guava, and apricot. A little bready and funky. Interesting.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The autumn version in the series of ’four season Fantômes’, with thick, stable, creamy, yellowish beige head and dark bronze colour with orange hue, hazy, but fully clouded after addition of the deposit. Spicy aroma of ginger, pepper, grapefruit, thyme, kiwi, sour cherries, earth, wood, dried leaves, bread, wine vinegar. Tingling fruitiness in the onset but only lightly sweetish, dry spicy middle, citrus freshness, lactic acidity, long bitter finish with cheesy hops and a yoghurt-like sourishness that cloys a bit. The beginning of the bottle also had a noticeable cork taste, which fortunately disappeared after adding more of the beer. Weird as ever, a kind of special saison, but not my favorite as far as this brewery is concerned.

Habanero (2755) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, banana notes, citrus, peach, cloves and corriander and some funk too. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry a close to tart and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and complex Saison.

Dunt (295) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Received in a trade with jsquire, thanks a bunch for the great trade Jeff! No discernible vintage found on the bottle, but it has the old paper labels typically seen in the early to mid 2000’s. Pours a murky brown in color with a ring of soapy off-white head around the glass. Nose shows very little oxidation, more along the lines of malt, citrus, orange peel, and some slight metallic notes. Flavor is malty and somewhat cocoa-y, with a fairly pleasant tart, citric finish. Very well rounded flavor. Moderate mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering acidity. Much better than I expected, quite a pleasant surprise on the day. You need to make this again Dany!

The original is better! Similar taste and aroma with some metallic hints and special malts.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
750mL bottle, courtesy of julian, pours a dirty, cloudy amber / mahogany with a tiny beige head. Aroma seems a tad oxidized and very malty, with dry cherries, some tannic qualities, and a bit of red wine vinegar. Flavour of red wine vinegar, tobacco, and leather most dominantly, and some dry caramel or toffee a little later. The oxidized qualities certainly show as well but definitely don’t kill it. While this has certainly passed its prime, the leather and tobacco notes help save this. Doesn’t strike me a saison, more like a Belgian amber ale. Very interesting one.

PhillyCraft (3456) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle a couple years back. Hazy golden pour with huge and ultra fluffed out white head. Lacing was small to medium. Aromas of lemon rind, and other citrus dominant fruits. Other notes of belgian spice, vinegar, and light cocoa powder. Taste is similiar with a green apple and lemon flavor with honey, malt, and hop bitterness. Somewhat dry but worked well with the beer. Nice and woody. Will try again.

callmemickey (3039) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Cloudy golden-amber body. Large fluffy white head. Spotty lacing. Nose if full of lemon, wheat, yeast, and mild earthen notes. Flavor is similar but a bit less successful. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, a hint of acidity in the finish. Another interesting offering from Dany.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2012
750ml bottle. Man, I’ve sought this one for a very long time after losing my rating from long ago. The pour yields a cloudy, dark, orange-amber body with a small, foamy, eggshell tinted blanket for a head. Minimal spotty lacing marks the glass. The aroma is quite spicy and complex, suggesting of peppery grasses, herbal tea, and orange and lemon skin, all over a base of candied amber cereal grain. Yeast is slightly tart and minty, as per the Fantôme norm. Flavors follow suit, very herbal and peppery, showing plenty of citrus pith. Candy sugar is sufficiently dried by the minty-tart yeast. The palate sports moderate body and carbonation. This one really came together for me. Nice stuff....a very solid Fantôme.
