COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian ’saison-style’ ale brewed with cocoa powder and chili pepper? Ay, Caramba! Score another first for the unpredictable brewery that was the first -- and so far the only - brewery to make ales out of dandelions and mushrooms, among other things.

Beerando (24) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 12, 2016
giallo ambrato con una buon cappello di schiuma, viene subito odor caratteristico del lievito saison, profumo debole di fruttato e speziato, al gusto di corpo alto, bevuta inizialmente dolce ma poi ben bilanciata da un discreto amaro accentuato da sentori di pepatura, retrogusto si sente un lieve gusto di cioccolato amaro ma nascosto da gli alcoli ben presenti!

IlGagario (33) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 3, 2016
In bottiglia, al pub. Colore dall’ambra al marrone ciliegio, oscurata da riflessi marrone noce. Testa decente di un dito e mezzo, biancam da schiumosa e cremosa. Naso di cacao, piante grasse, pinzimonio, tabasco. Carbonazione da flat a soffice. Aroma con nota di cioccolato fondente, un po’ polverosa, non in primaria evidenza, poi sensazioni leggermente piccanti ma sapide di peperoncino, tabasco e salsa chili, anche ravanello, pepe, aloe ed elementi terrosi. Presenta altresì un retro carattere leggermente acido con corpo e struttura allineati allo stile saison. Chiusura di beva breve e pepata. Gradevolmente amara e speziata, a tratti fa emergere una sensazione irrimediabilmente di secca preclusione aromatica che domanda sollievo, ma invano. Stavolta un prodotto accessibilissimo da Fantome, stabile, anche prudente, scorrevole e non stucchevole, in parte dotato di quel senso di travaglio tipico del birrificio in esame, comunque ottimo da accostare a dolci al cioccolato.

Bottle. Cloudy light orange with an initially dense bubbly white head, quickly fading. Aroma chocolate, banana, caramel, oaky, some pine. Taste is of wheat, oats, chocolate, pepper, subtle hints of the chili powder. Light oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation. Really unusual, enjoyed this a lot.

Drank during the tasting 20-11. Sour is not really my thing, but not a bad beer. Nice soft chocolate and good body.

Erzengel (6745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2015
*Old rating. Best before June 12. Typisch säuerlich und trotzdem weiches Fantôme-Bier. Die Schokolade und das Chili sind nicht ganz auszumachen, Gewürze, intensiv, süffig, rund. Lecker!

jhamp9 (1462) - Corinth, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Lightly hazed copper pour with no head. Aroma is apple juice, faint chili, and saison yeast. Taste is apple juice, earth, toffee, subtle chili, and some funk. Didn’t detect any cocoa and chili was very faint. No carbonation. Dry finish.
