Hazy yellow/orange color, decent head. Citrusy aroma with some farmhouse funk. Malty at first with some spice and orange. Tastes like a saison crossed with a witbier. Lively mouthfeel, left a tingle in the mouth. Very nice. Thank you joey_capps.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Malt, citrus aromas. Hazy yellow, small white head. Malt at first, with lemony after taste. Nice tongue tingle, a very good example. Thanks joey_capps!

Oakes (12849) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Cloudy beige. Citrusy aroma with barnyard, peaches. Malty start gets spicy and spritzy as it goes. Finish is both refreshing and yeasty at the same time - a rare quality indeed. Like with all Fantomes, I need more.

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Hazy orange colour with a dense white head. Aroma of curacao, coriander seed and caster sugar. Full-bodied; Sweet caster sugar in the flavour with some spicey complexities. Aftertaste nice and flavourful with sugars and spice. Odd for a summer-but really great to try! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003. I owe a large amount of thanks to Joey_capps for bringing this 750 mL bottle up for us to all try!

Good size head sticks around. Slightly hazy. Aroma is subtle and lightly spicy. Complex flavours, lots of sour and tart.

slushy (28) - Niagara Falls, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Beautiful beer here. Nice orange color with a huge frothy head, great lacing down the glass. Musky sweet sour apples in the nose. Very sour fruitiness on the tongue. Fantome makes some of the best beers in the world. Long live the ghost!

Tangerine gold initially, transforming into butterscotch pudding as the bottom of the bottle is poured in. Wonderfully frothy head that leaves a characteristic ring of foam about an inch above the body. Aroma offers tart strawberries, blueberries, sour white grapes, lemon zest, and fruity wet-green moss. . . velvety carbonation as flavours roll over the tongue: sour cherries, strawberries, vanilla, rose petals, iron, clay, oak and an earthy bitterness that leaves the mouth watering for more. The flavours (as opposed to the aroma)were the highlite of this one for me. . . another amazing beer from Fantome.

Another one I have to thank Boto for, I didn't even see this beer at the CT River Brewers Fest until he told me where it was. And it turned out to be my favorite of the day. It pours with a deep golden body with amber undertones topped by a thick white foamy head with lots of lacing. Slightly sweet and flowery aroma with slight grainy notes. Sweet slightly flowery malt flavor with a very slight hoppiness. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

boto (1898) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2003 Draught: What a suprise to see this at the CTRiver Brewing festival. The beer was a dark golden color. It had a huge head. The aroma is hard to describe, as it is very complex, but wonderful. There is also a complexness to the taste. There are fruits (but not really sweet, more tart) and caramel, some subtle hops. Another great experience from them!

Golden orange, hazy body beneath a huge, rocky, frothy eggshell head. A beautiful crasy-ass Fantome aroma. Shrubbery, grapefruit, lemon, pizza dough, pine sap, leather, mushrooms, moss, damp fibrous wood and many others. Tart, sharp and acidic in the mouth. Slighty fruity, fairly strong spiciness. A touch of bitterness in finish. Another fantastic creation from the Brasserie Fantome.
