Thanks to eyedrinkale for sharing this one... Appears a hazy, dark amber with a small white head that fades into a mild white cap. Spotty streaks of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is of funky, cork, wet straw, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, and roasted nuts. taste is of the mentioned aromas with a standout of sweet, sugary, earthy malts. Light oxidation in this aged bottle but still decent. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, semi-sweet, smooth, with sugary caramel holding on with light herbs and spices.

Poured a dark cloudy amber with a small white head. No signs of the usual funk nose you get from Fantome.The nose had spice, bread and bananas.Flavor was bready with spice and malts.The finish was dry.This was definately different than any other Fantome I’ve had.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Thanks to EDA for sharing. Id been wanting to try this one for a while. Pours a hazy amber with a nice fluffy off white head and good lacing. Aroma is a bit stale and old but held osme of the saison yeast, light caramel, but had light paper, and cedary pencil quality. Flavor is a bit better beign slightly sweet caramel, nutty, earthy and herbal spices including white peppercorn. A bit too old at this point but still decent

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Thanks to eyedrinkale. Pours a cloudy brownish golden with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light spices, tea, some citrus and grains. Flavor of various spices, dry, honey, malty sweetness, some wheat tartness...kind of past its prime.

750ml bottle thanks to gottalottaibu for this retired Fantome. pours hazy dark orange with fluffy white head. nose is very mothy, flowery, grainy, and subtle citrus and spice. flavor is mothy, oaky, spicy, grainy, and stuble citrus sweetness. finish is really dusty and dry. carbonation is smooth, and body is light. uniquely fantome, but sorta boring.

hazy orange with nice head. dank aroma mwith some banana bread. musty flavor balanced with sweetness. funk is moderate but still there. slightly dry finish with a light mouthfeel. fantome is always enjoyable.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 Bottle from Bu11zeye. Definitely the most disappointing fantome I’ve had to date. Pours a deep ruddy brown with a large head. Aroma of chestnut and plum with a slight alcohol heat (at 6.4%?!) and little complexity. Chewy and watery flavor, fruity and odd, dry spices. 6/4/5/3/3.0

rerate 2/2/08: Bottle shared by MaxxDaddy. Rich, musky, dank cellar aroma, grapes and apples and a touch of mint, with that distinct fantome yeast. Rich cardboardy malt flavor, mint sprigs, and a wet wheat freshness that is completely delicious. Lovin’ this. I’m amazed this is the same beer as last time. 8/4/9/4/4.2

Hazy dark amber, with a soft, smal off-white head. Rather a bitter nose with some dust, brett, light sweetness. Flavor is fairly sweet, with quite a bit of dust and hay. Not too much depth there--a touch watery. Ends quite dry.
