Batch 1 purchased from Etre Gourmet a year or two ago. Been sitting quietly in the cellar since, figured I would give it a spin tonight. Pours a relatively clear amber/orange in color with about a finger and a halfs worth of off-white head. Nose is comprised of cantalope, pumpkin spice, and honeydew melon. Flavor mirrors the nose in that it’s predominately cantalope and melon with some backing pumpkin and a light tart finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slight sweetness, a little sticky, and a long finish. Big step up from the last bottle I opened about a year ago. The smoke is nonexistent at this point and this has morphed into an extraordinary beer. I worry that bottle variation will prevent me from picking up more of this in the future, but I would love to see how this develops.

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.

No retention and and no lacing. Smells of cloves, wheat, biscuit and yeast. Tastes of banana cloves, yeast, pepper and yeast. Dry aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
