75cl green bottle. Shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Pours hazy amber/orange with a medium white head. Short lived foam. Aroma is quite sweet with some funk. Malty sweetness base. Taste is similar: some malty sweetness with some sweet spicy and funky notes. Some yeasty spiciness but profile is preatty sour and clean. Good carbonation and medium body. Good belgian ale but Dany can do better things for sure.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL <<GUSHER WARNING>> from a trade on BA. Pours a full haze, brighter orange. Thicker white foam. Nose is lightly funky, some heavier candies, candy corn, potpourri lemon and orange. Taste is very odd- paper is the dominant flavor, some smoke, some very in your face toasted pumpkin seed dustiness, cell wall astringency, a bit uncanny. No complexity- just a ton of pumpkin seed. Perhaps very light spicy acidity in the back end. Bizarre, but what were you expecting?

Hazy yellow in color... Aroma of citrus, wild yeast... Flavor is citrus initially, almost like a Belgian wit with orange zest, but finish is strongly Brett... Delicious and unique

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear light amber with a large, thick head. Nose is way more pumpkin forward than I expected, with some spices and Belgian yeast kick. Mouth oddly sweet and pumpkin meat, pie spices, crust. Didn’t expect this from Fantome, basically it’s a legitimate pumpkin ale with a nicely integrated Belgian yeast component. Carbonation is really high. I thought this was going to be some weird, sour, grassy saison with a minimal impression of pumpkins, but that’s not the case. Decent, not amazing or anything, doesn’t blow me away, but a good beer.
