9th January 2011
Hazy dark red - brown beer. Small bubbly tan head. Tangerine and cherry nose. Dry palate with mildly prickly carbonation. Sour tart tangerine, perhaps a dash of cherry. Spicy dry finish, ginger and a pinch of chilli. Unusual beer but a little too sour for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy orange with small white head. citrus, spices, not as sour as I expected and a lot less barn than I expected although both are there. I cannot believe this is 8% alcohol, I cannot detect any! I even had to double check the bottle as I thought it tasted about 4%. Easy drinker.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of julian, pours a cloudy opaque yellow with a light orange tint and a very small white head. Aroma is quite soapy and floral, with orange and lime zest. Flavour certainly brings out the zest, and loads of floral, soapy notes, finishing rather tart and soapy. The body is extraordinarily viscous, especially for a saison, almost chewy like. Certainly unique and unlike anything I’ve had before, let alone a saison.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer appears hazy and orange / yellow in color. The head is white and fizzy, stands in around half an inch thick, and leaves a good amount of lacing upon the glass. The aroma is the best aspect of Fantôme Saison D’Erezée - Été. The beer emits a cornucopia of fruit scents, including oranges, pineapples, and pears. In addition to the fruit, the beer has a pleasant yeasty smell and flavor. This is a unique beer, and one I really enjoyed. The feel is medium bodied, with alcohol presence a non-issue. The beer carries with it a certain amount of fruity sweetness that makes this bottle best shared and enjoyed in small quantities.
