Pours a hazy orange with a n enormous creamy ivory head, Sheets of lace. Smell is fruity and citrusy. Yeasty and oungent. Pear aromas. Lightly spicy.
Taste is lightly spicy up front. Followed by bitterness and light funkiness (brett?). Some subdued bitter herbal hops and earthiness. Dry, especially in the finish. Mouth is strangely creamy and dry. This is nice stuff. Pretty mellow but really tasty.

I don’t have too much to say about this beer other than it stood out at the Pizza Port 12 Hour Beglian Beer Party.
Appearance is rather dark amber with tons of head. Smell... well, this is familiar and unusual... it smells exactly like brew day, any homebrewer would recognize this. Flavor is as worty as possible, I have never tasted anything that has gone through fermentation that tastes like this beer. This is really odd and interesting, its medium bodied and clings a bit to the palate. Not entirely sure how drinkable it is cause I had way too many samples prior to this one. Give it a whirl, especially if you brew!

This beer has an amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is little acid with a bitter afther tast.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Bottle. Cloudy tangerine color with a gigantic head. Aroma is dusty with some dried citrus fruits. Taste is subdued. Starts somewhat tart of lemon and hops and then mellows out with malts and leather. Really smooth, as I drank the whole damn bottle.

Okay, this doesn’t look classic, it is honey colored, murky with a white head that rims the glass. Aroma is vinous, yeasty, horseblanket(funky), and slightly sweet. Flavor is fairly tart and vinious. Usually many of the Fantome’s are spicey this wasn’t.but it may have a lillte pepper. Finish is sweet and sour, you pick them.
