marcus (8010) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with a modest beige head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a very dry musty caramel malt flavor that seems to go nowhere. I like the sour element, but the base beer is lacking in character.

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Slightly hazy pale amber colour, white head. Aroma of candy, green banana, chewing gum and light fruit. Light funky flavour, light sweet, some sour note, malts with a light touch of hops. Malty finish, light sweet, fruit and light funk.
The 1st beer in the Fantôme tasting spree.

Bottle courtesy of 77ships, thanks! Cloudy orange yellow color, medium white head, solid lacing. Aroma of slightly dusty summer fruit. Taste is softly sour and funky apricot. Very nice.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2013
75cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of 77ships. Dorée tirant vers orangé trouble, col blanc épais Arôme est en ligne avec la bière de base de Fantôme, sauf avec un rajout d’épices oscillant entre citrouille et girofle. Note aussi un bouquet malté plus présent ici entre pâle et cara. Palais reste assez épais et encore une bière Fantôme qui malheureusement est soit réussie ou alors manque de finition. Ici, on est juste entre les deux. Note de fruits renfermés avec une levure bien présente, et un côté fruité houblonné amer léger qui s’entremêle avec un ajout faible d’épice (probable graine de courge/ citrouille). Comme souvent, on retrouve un profil unique Fantôme qui est semblable à quasi toutes les bières. Au final, l’ajout d’épice voire de citrouille reste faible donnant à la bière un changement en terme de palais qui reste trop discret.

ineedbeer (1369) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
I must have won the Fantome lottery because this bottle was excellent. Aroma is full of spice and fruit. The spice includes cinnamon, coriander, clove, allspice and a bit of mint. There is citrus - lemon and tangerine, pear and apple cider. No hop or alcohol aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with a pillowy white head that has very nice retention. There is really nice lacing and minimal legs. This bottle was a gusher but after the initial gush it was fine. Flavor is full of citrus and spices. The citrus is mostly lemon but there is a hint of orange. The spice is mostly clove, coriander and cinnamon. Medium low bitterness. Some nice acidity helps cleanse the palate. Not much of a barnyard character. The mint shows up in the finish along with a nice citrus character. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low to no astringency and low alcohol warmth. Like I said at the start, I won the Fantome lottery. This beer is excellent. A great spice character with nice palate cleansing citrus an acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (11367) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
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.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
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.

gunnar (6921) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2013
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.

jredmond (6670) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle at gingerman with Andy, max, pearl, and Jess. Happy bday max. Pours a deep amber with light haze and lots of white lacing. Aroma is spice, estery, pumpkin and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium with nice carbonation and notes of spice, plastic, smoke, citrus and candy. Very interesting beer.
