UPDATED: FEB 3, 2009 A tart and peppery arrow hits the yeasty hay target...The bow is of lemon rinds and accomplishes restraint and precision...The elbow bends once again to discover that this fluffy, tame Fantome is still a famous effort in originality and drinkability...Tigg compares it to Hitachino Nest’s New Year’s Celebration Ale, which is dead-on for body, funky fruitiness and overall, no-style creativity...Yet, new vintages are a lot bolder in body, and almost chocolatey, which is a far cry from older versions...Fantôme seasons really are different every year...I distinctly remember past vintages to be near and the latest one was dark auburn...

Cloudy red-orange-amber. Bight white head. Excellent lacing. Spicy, fruity, yeasty aroma w/ notes of Cinnamon & nutmeg. Light, spritzy feel. Warm, fruity, yeasty, spicy flavour w/ lovely tangy tartness.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 8, 2003
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.

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 (13060) - 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 (4923) - 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!
