Corked and capped bottle from Tipples. Lot number 25-8-12. Pours mostly clear orange with a small off white head. Funky yeast aroma, spice, lots more funk, light hops, hay and grass, some fruity sweetness. Flavor is light hay, fruit sweetness of apples and pears, peaches/apricots, bananas, some spice, cloves, lots of farmhouse hearty funk. Has some tripel notes and Saison notes. Prickly carbonation and medium mouthfeel. I am really enjoying this one and wish I had it in the fall as it would make a nice autumn seasonal. Not sure why the ratings are so low here unless they made a bunch of bad batches before this (I guess characteristic of Fantome).

Bottle. Murky orange amber, with an off white head. Aroma of funky yeast, bread, and musty. Flavors of bread, banana, funk, leather, yeast, some sweetness, and finishes with some metallic bitterness. Weird.

Really surprised reading the other reviews on this. This tastes to me like a smoked beer. Heavy smokey wood, bandaids, cloves, and bananas. Really odd in a fantome sort of way.

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, strange peppery malt with weird Italian herbs, and chemical character. In mouth, a weird peated malt with light cherry notes, lactic acid, interesting. Sampler at Battle of the Belgians at Jimmys 43.
