Completely BEAUTIFUL. Delish. Mellow rounded complexity hiding under the surface of a taste that just kept coming back to me all the rest of the day. The flavors meld so well that this little boy has great difficulty pulling them apart. Don't really feel I need a science course to know I like it this much.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Bottle. Hazy-light-amber with a big head. Typical guezeish smell with also a hint of nice apples. Some spiciness in the flavor along with a delightfully moist and lingering mouthfeel. Good stuff.

rauchbier (3635) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy amber orange, excellent rocky fluffy white long lasting head and good condition. First aroma is that lambic/orval note but it soon subsides and is replaced by a fruity malt and cider apple tartness with some spiciness in the background. In the mouth it is full bodied and slightly chalky with apples and malt. Yeast sediment adds a spiciness and there is a vague suggestion of hops. Finish is sweet and sour with a mouth filling dryness. Threatens to offend but is pleasant and quenchingly drinkable for 8%.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Not a bad Saison. Fruity, spicy, and tart. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Just a bit darker than the Fantome Saison, as well as harsher and sweeter. The label depicts a ghost emerging from a PC monitor bearing beer, but that did not happen in my case. Somewhat spicy, but not much citrus. So-so.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Very impressive. Brillant Orange, with a huge finely carbonated head. Sour, Lemony aroma. Full sour/tart flavor, with grain (rye?) and citrus in there as well. Notes of Oak and stone, as well as some mustiness, too. Nicley bitter, but not too overwhelming. I'd call it whelming, in fact. Now what the Hell is up with the label? Did I miss something?

Ernest (6356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy/murky medium amber, dense particles of all sizes, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (bread, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (lemon, herbs, grass), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horseblanket), with notes of cask wood, grape, and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Great stuff from start to finish...attractive farmy saison/lambic aroma, lambic-like tartness with well-matched bitterness and malt, nice mouthfeel and fabulous appearance. Another astounding creation from Dany.

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2003
Bottled. Orange coloured and cloudy. Very complex estery aroma, I get melon and bubblegum. Firm yet fruity, then a new sensation sets in, a hot cayenne pepper finish!?!

jonas (5849) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Fruity (citrus, peach) and spicy aroma Glowing warm orange with a huge creamy head and tiny bubbles. Oranges, a bit grassy and with a acidic dryness. Creamy and pleasant.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2003
This is pure Fantome Saison in every weird way possible. It"s a sweet tart of a beer, more herbs/lichens/moss/earth and pepper than one can ever expect to find in one place. I cannot believe that liquids of this extraordinary beauty exist on the planet. We are so lucky.
