4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle from Dany at the brewery in Soy. Pours cloudy deep amber, frothy effervescent off-white head. Aroma is earthy, saison-esque spice. Taste is rich spice, red wine oak, mild sherry. Tastes a lot richer and stronger than 4.7%. Extremely flavoursome, kinda tastes red wine barrel-aged with added bretty complexity. Another cracker from Dany!

Bottle shared. Clear golden with big fluffy off white head. Grassy, quite some bitter herbs, lemon, orange, soft caramel, touch of spices but I don’t get much black pepper. Under medium sweet and medium bitter. Almost medium bodied with nice carbonation and light spicy finish. Quite good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
~10 years old. Copper orange clear color with foam layer. Sour and light acidic and salty nose. The taste is sour and milky salty with hints of soapy touch. Very weirdly clean offset in the aftertaste and a layer on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber, a little red-brown with long lasting tan head. Aroma is clove, vanilla, nuts, a little pine cone hops, some spicy booze as well. Taste is mostly champagne-like sour and a little aclohol warmth. Smooth mouthfeel, not much carbonation, long sour and a little bitter finish. Overall Ok, but a the complexity is more like an awkward combination of random stuff for me.

Bottle, a decade old? Dusty, spongy, Orval-like barn, horse-blanket. Bright red amber, offwhite foam. Light fruit, a bit caramal, spicy notes, leathery, light oxidized - but it fits! Amazing flavor for the age. Drinkable, fun.

(Fantôme BBB Dark White) Corked bottle 750 ml, served into a teku at home, ABV 4.7%
Deep golden orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with good activity in it and a very tall and quite thick, white head on too. Very good retention, with light lacing left around the glass.
Nice aroma with light citrus and orange peel, floral notes, light spices, faint yeast.
Quite bitter taste with more citrus now, orange peel, light pine and resin, fresh grass, spices, floral notes, bitterness becomes stronger.
Medium body with good carbonation, quite dry palate.
