COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another masterful creation from brewer Dany Prignon has let life take its course in this brew to give us an honest, sour beer of mixed fermentation. The 2nd in a limited series of "Spéciales" from Brasserie Fantômes.

At Stephen’s house; he thinks he is a body builder. Aroma is musky, huge horse blanket, barnyard, slightly tart. Taste is lemony tart, horse blanket with some interested complexity.

750 ml corked and capped bottle thanks to fletcher. Thanks man! Pours a hazy copper with a fairly large head of white foam. Aroma is musty, earthy, floral, tart. The taste has a medium tartness to it, but was sour enough to be satisfying. Over carbonated. As soon as the beer hit my tongue it turned to bubbles. There was a lingering tartness to this beer in the finish.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. Thanks man!! Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Tangy, orangey, a touch smoky, a bit of spice, biscuity, peachy, and tannic aroma. Taste is big peach, tangerine, doughy, tangy, white grapes, oranges, and oak with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice stuff.

Nocturne (746) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Sample from bottle. Hazy yellow shade with white bubbles. Aroma is all barnyard and green apple. An instant sour punch is evidence that the name was correct. More orchard fruit above a light, wheaty base. Very impressive.

Pour from bottle. Hazy yellow, with a white head. Tart, dry, lots of brett character, light funk, lemon, and tropical fruit. Pretty tasty.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark-ish golden with a huge white head. Aroma brings out tart fruity notes, especially apricot and peach, and loads of brett. Flavour brings out dry tart fruits, with peach especially, lemon peel, and moderate brett presence. Extremely high carbonation, but it is more or less fitting. Very dry and tart, with low funkiness and medium acidity. The best Fantome I’ve had.

Thanks to Thorpe for sharing. The beer is hazy and yellow with a small white head. The nose brings tropical fruit and citrus with a touch of spice and pepper. The flavor brings mango, melon and pepper. Some tartness with herbal and grassy tones. Rally nice. Easy drinking. Juicy and delicious. Definitely one of the better beers I’ve had from Dany.
