2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, a slight sweetish hints and sourish hints. Yeasty a bit as well. Clearly a fantome beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Surprisingly fruity aroma initially, plenty of citrus. Further investigation reveals lemon Pledge alongside a strong yeast component. Taste is more reasonable as pears & citric fruits join forces before getting quashed by this brew's massive amount of carbonation. Decent I suppose, not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours hazy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is light sour and fruity malts, burnt rubber or plastic. Taste is slightly on the sour side, citrus and orangepeel, aggresive carbonated, acidic mouthfeel, not a winner for me.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Gingerman. Outrageous aroma, all over the place: allspice, lemon, cider vinegar, violet, squash, lemon candy. Unique and crazy complex. Burnt sugar flavor, some pumpkin and warheads, nutmeg. A bit harsh but still lovely.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of leather, smoke, horse blanket – what a clusterfuck of weird shit. Flavour is all over the place as well, with leather, smoke and oranges, and some vegetal qualities in back. WTF – another messed up Fantome beer, and this one is a total disaster.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
750ml bottle pours a hazy and foamy orange color. Off-putting rubbery smoky aroma with a hint of pumpkin and spices. The flavor is a disgusting mix of bandaid, silly putty, and spices. Nasty. Crisp palate and good carbonation, but that doesn’t come close to saving this sloppily made disaster. Got reamed to the tune of $23 for this at Brouwerij Lane. Majorly weak.
