Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 Bottle courtesy of The_Beer_God. Thanks Mike! Pours pumpkin colored with a medium sized fast disappearing head. Sour aroma with notes of caramel and spice (thyme). Taste is a little underwhelming compared to the aroma, but still a very nice light funk and dark fruits. Very complex beer and very nice.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God. Cloudy orange body with a small white head. Sweet fruity aroma, light caramel, and lots of spice. Fruity, peppery flavor, caramel, and light apple. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

Dedollewaitor (15250) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle from Bier circus, Brussels. Vintage 2001 (20 Euro bottle): Pours dark muddy brown with a creamy off white head. Earthy, spicy, peppery aroma. Both sweet & sour Roasted malts - caramel & chocolate. Smooth & soft with a sour freshness. Giant sediments in the bottom of bottle. Another exciting fantome experience!

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Clear light tea colored, with about 1/2 an inch of nearly white frothy foam. Good but not great lacing. Sharp fruity and cidery aroma. Very dry beer, with a mild grainy flavor and some bitter tannin like a too-strong tea. There is a brief hint of caramel in the aftertaste that supplies the only sweetness. The finish is a little musty and relatively sharp, almost cheese-like. Light body is full of extremely soft carbonation, which is quite pleasant. This one has all of the funk of Fantome beers, without a whole lot more of the more ’traditional’ beer flavor to balance it. It took me well into my second glass to start to enjoy it. By the end of the bottle, however, I wanted more.

Dorwart (2491) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Thin, foamy head of fine bubbles. Reduces quickly. Awesome carbonation which keeps an everlasting head on the brew. Golden amber in color. Light aroma. Spices, light malts and a little vegetal in the aroma. Nothing special though. Light and fizzy in the mouth. More spices, grass, ginger. Pretty dry. Finiish is dry, with a slight bitterness and tartness. Has a little smokey and roasty aftertaste also. Very strange.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Very floatie-rich body - lots of herbs and spices in here. Cloudy burned-orange in hue. Fruity, but not sweet - in fact, it is quite sour, and it made me wish I had a piece of cheese handy to pair with it. It was decent, but certainly not my favorite saison.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange/amber color with a small off white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma of apricots, freshly cut grass and a bit of floral notes. Flavor was more tart than I expected. Dried apricots are the first thing to come to mind, along with lemongrass and a yeasty finish.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2006
The aroma was lemony, light fruit, and sweet. The beer poured a yellow orange color w/ gold highlights, no head or lace. The flavor had honey, light fruit, spicey hops, slight malty textures. The mouthfeel was light bodied, and well carbonated.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2006
Bottle. Orange colour with a big white head. Sweet fruity, spicy aroma and taste. Medium body with a dry finish.
