7/7/12. Bottle shared at my going away tasting by myself. Dammit, Robbie - be patient! Man, this bottle was well into the night. Amber pour with a nice head. Funky vinegar aroma with some caramel malt and a touch of seltzer. Tart flavor with caramel malts and more. Quite tasty!

Goddamnit Danny, hurry up! Deep bet pour and a fizzy white head. Nose is tons of funk, white pepper and lemons. Taste almost the same. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours super cloudy- like fresh juiced apple juice. Apple aromas, or just my imagination? Some outdoorsy aromas too. Wow, intensely carbonated! Tastes rather like a bitter cider- the apple aroma was no ruse. Quite pleasant woodsy/funky notes as well. I think this saison would do better in the fall, but it is outstanding any time of year.

Enjoyed at our beer BBQ. Thanks Wally for bringing this! Enjoyed in a simple tulip at cellar temp. I got the last pour so a bit of sediment made its way in. Best by october, 2013. 750ML Format
A - dark brown, huge amount of clouds due to sediment. Slight head that fades fast.
S - Spicey! tobaco and bright back of the nose feeling.
T - mmm. very deep rich tastes bright peppery spices, cloves and orange peels
M - 40% carbonation. Medium body. mellow consistent finish that stays with you with lemon.
O - Very nice! Really enjoyable and worth seeking out.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of damp basement, herbs, earth, tart apple and grape. Appearance is amber/copper with huge, billowy head. Flavor matches the nose; really musty up front, followed by fruit and with a bone-dry finish. Palate is effervescent and bubbly. Great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 5/11/12 from a capped and corked 750mL bottle purchased at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee some time in 2010. Pours deep auburn with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to thick lace, leaving messy lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is nicely tart with some caramel malt, a spice note that could be black pepper, and a nice lemon peel note. The flavor is more subdued with the very light caramel malt, a tart lemon peel note, and a lightly fruity and black pepper flavor. The body is light with average carbonation and a long lightly bitter lemon peel and black pepper peach finish.

Thanks to Jrob21 for my first Fantome.
Pours a dark hazy amber ruby with a couple fingers off white head. Smell is complex, melon and vinous, Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly tart, spicy, grape, citrus. Very drinkable. Lighter bodied. Amazing.
