3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Fruit Weeks 2009)
Very light fruity aroma, some cola and lemonade. Sourish palate, light and crisp. Pleasant carbonation. Herby bent to the taste, but still quite lemonadey too. With yeast, there’s more sherbet. Pleasantly malty body, but not grabbing me. Sourness is most pleasant.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled, 0.75l) Very hazy amber with a small, firm head (did hurry out from the bottle, though). Typical dry and spicy Fantome aroma with some herby notes. Flavor of dry maltiness, and also some oregano can be found, if you know to look for it. Medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. Didn’t find much oregano in this, but nevertheless it’s a very enjoyable saison. Maybe not as refreshing as the plain version, but still...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75 l bottle. Hazy, glowing orange with a light head and some sediment. Spicy fruit aroma, particularly orange zest. Generous on the spice mix, including not least oregano. Add to that orange fruit and you have a strange, but highly drinkable mix. Scores as always on originality.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orangey golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of oregano, bread and fruits. Interesting flavor of fruits, oregano, mild bread and tartness. The body is light with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. Fantôme products tend to be hit or miss, this original concotion is a hit.
