750 ml. into footed glass. Kind of underwhelming. Nothing about this beer stood out to me. After reading the description, I now know that the occassional spiciness underneath the dark, non-sweet chocolate malt is black pepper, but that flavor never came to mind while drinking. Smooth and quaffable, surely, but without any of the stand-out uniqueness I’ve come to expect from Fantome.

ClubGonzo (4726) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle sample @ HaandFestival 2015. Slightly hazy dark golden body with a medium white head. Nose is black pepper, nuts, straw, hay and hints of pale malts and white sugar. Taste is green leafy vegetables, black pepper, pale malts, saison yeast, white sugar and hints of red fruits, hay and straw. 6 Medium body and carbonation. Nice peppery saison from Fantome, without any big surprises.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Smak och doft av humle, karamell, röda bär, vinbär, plommon, vitt vin och nyponsoppa. Fin syrlighet, lagom beska, lätt kärvhet som balanserar upp smakerna. Mycket gott!

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Liknar tunn nyponsoppa och har en inte helt olika smakbild. Mycket söta bär och frukter. Aprikos, plommon/plommonvin, nypon, havtorn och honung. I bakgrunden en liten pepprighet som svarar upp bra mot sötman. Inget typiskt Fantômeöl men riktigt trevlig.
