oh6gdx (23636) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottled@HBF2013 (Fantome Clos Preal 2011). Hazy amber colour, small white head. Aroma is mild spices, citrus, some floral notes along with mild mold and caramel. Flavour is mild yeast, spices, some wooden and resiny notes. Good, but still a slight disappointment for being a Fantome...

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2013
(Bottled@HBF 2013) Hazy golden with a small head. Anise and licorice in the nose. Licorice, yeast, smooth alcohol, light spiciness, some metal in the flavor. Medium to full body, soft CO2. Not very interesting for a Fantome; clean and unmemorable.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. Thanks buddy!! Pour is hazy orange with a small white head. Banana, clove, coriander, tart, malty, caramel, light toffee, and red licorice in the aroma. Taste is somewhat oxidized, cardboard, tangy, banana, lemon, caramel, and doughy with a touch of spice on the backend. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL, 2011 bottle, thanks a ton! Hazy orange pour with nice white head, aroma brought notes of some slight vanilla, honey, slight biscuit, bread, and yeast, hints of slight funky fruit notes, hints of green tea notes. Taste is a mix of slight white fruit, biscuit, bread, slight biscuit, lots of odd funky fruity notes with lots of green tea, herbal notes, finishing slightly bitter. Tasty, but different.

mjs (5614) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 20, 2013
(Bottle, 0.75 l - 2011 Vintage, at HBF2013) The beer poured golden and orange. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, farmhous and honey. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, honey, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Afteraste was fruity and bitter. Does not taste like a Fantôme beer at all. A good beer but I feel cheated.

Martinus (4280) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Orange golden colour, white head. Aroma of apricot, peach, light funky saison notes, yeast and candy sugar. Quite bitter flavour, malts, quite fruity. Spicy finish, fruity and floral notes.
The 7th and last beer in the Fantôme tasting spree. Amusing.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2013
75cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of 77ships. Couleur orangée brumeuse, col blanc généreux. Arôme est épicé et fruité laissant un beau bouquet d’agrumes. Palais présente un profil typique Fantôme avec ici une version proposant un alcool plus présent qui est poussé d’après moi par un ajout malté plus conséquent. Ce dernier se ressent en bouche avec un subtile caramel plus présent. L’alcool est bien prenant et donne à cette bière plus de dimension tout en gardant l’esprit saison de Fantôme évitant ainsi de tomber dans du belge banal. Au final, belle découverte, mais trop cher pour le produit final, bien sûr cela étant le vœux de Etre-Gourmet.
