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.

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.

Overall a great beer with tons of tart characteristics. Lots of dusty basement aromas and flavors with a huge sharp tartness that is lime and lemon heavy. Interesting and tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 Big thanks to a generous trader for this one. Served in a Fantôme tulip. Pours a slightly cloudy light golden with a big, fizzy white head. Nose is fairly pepper heavy with a bit of Brett & very mild lactic. Some tropical & citrus to flavor. Highly carbonated. Better after swirling out some of the carbonation. More lemon, light lactic, and faint funk after that. Overall, nose is too peppery and flavor is similar to a good batch of the regular Saison.

Poured from a bottle at Triple Rock Sour Beer Sunday. Pours golden with a nice off-white head and a bready aroma. There is a subtle sour fruit flavor with a vinous finish. This is a good blend.

Bottle shared at the December tasting in Santa Cruz. Gold with a disappearing effervescent white head. Sharp lemon candy aroma with a cheesy funk. Tart candy flavor, Smarties, lemon and fruity sweetness. A little sticky and flabby.
