Summer 1999. Complete with disintegrating composite cork. Luminous hazy golden, (as only fantome beers can be). Prickily acidic nose. Quite spicy rather acidic. Rather hoppy bitter (maybe more than hops) Amazingly through all of this a soft honey character. I'm curious how much more acidic this is than when it was bottled. Bravo!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2004
Cloudy orange color,medium sized white head that faded slowly leaving behind a nice lace.Very nice fruity aroma,sort of sweet and yet a slight sour side comes through in the aroma.Very good flavor of fruit like maybe some lemon grass some orange and a nice spicy side that doesn't get over powering.There is a slight barnyard like flavor that manages to come through as well.Overall this is a damn fine brew and i will definately be picking up another bottle when i hit the Minneapolis area.Thanks go to Nexxus for sending this nice selection my way.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Pours a foamy yellow orange with a big white head. Citrussy yeast aroma. Flavor is malty and tripel like. This seems to be rather like any Belgian Tripel! Decent and enjoyable.

Lubiere (11932) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2004
White beer with a spicy lemony aroma. Very nioce fruits, bananasa, spices and confectioner's sugar. Body is quite superb, and the tartness would go well in the summer. Miam....

Ernest (7031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2004
2000 bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (barnyard, horseblanket), moderately malty (toasted grain), with notes of grass, hay, earth, etc. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Just another Fantome masterpiece, at least at this age. Beautiful rustic farmy aroma, excellent balance, what more do you want?

Ungstrup (32166) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2004
The aroma is sweet and malty. The color is a hazy orange and it has a fine head. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, grain, and straws. The end is sweet rather than bitter. A nice beer.

Bottle. Hazy amber color with a foamy off-white head. Musty, citrus, and slighly sour. Ultimately a smooth but not complex.

Delightful, light, but sweet -candy sweet. A lot like the regular saison. I'm not getting much bitterness.

Cloudy orange, foamy white head. Citrusy tart aroma, slightly candyish with hints of sweet malt and various other fruity concoctions. Nice fruitiness in the body, tart with a touch of alcohol. An appetizing yeastiness rounds the body which finished quite bitter with hints of citrus. Nice ale from a great brewery.
