UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From a 750ml green bottle with crown cap and cork. Many thanks to Patrick. Apperance: Orange beer with a tiny white foam. A small ring around the glass. Smell: Aromas of honey mead are perceptible. Some rancio and oxidation. Taste: Some spices and acidity. The oxidation is way too present. Mouthfell: Medium-bodied and easy drinking. Overall: This beer is going downhill. It had better days.

Martinus (4354) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2012
Slightly hazy golden colour, small white head. Some floaties. Aroma of hops, malt, quite herbal, oregano. Sweet herbal flavour, light bitter. Finish clashing herbal oregano with citrus tones.
(From 75cL bottle @ RBBWG, Antwerpen 2012. Thanks for sharing, sebletitje!)

SlovakSniper (4707) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
(75 cl) Une bière dorée et voilée. Des sédiments qui flottent. Un pauvre col mousseux. Des parfums et des flaveurs de fleurs et de vinaigre. Une bouche défraîchie, un corps malade, un pétillement sur le respirateur artificiel. Une finale aigre. Une vieille bouteille qui, dans ces conditions, m’a coûtée la peau des fesses.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2012
bottle @ RBBWG 2012 thanks to Sebletitje. Hazy blond yellow coloured beer with almost no carbonation and a small white head. Spicy and heavy oregano infused herby aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is herby. Oregano is comming through clearly. Longer dry herby ending with only some small bitter sweet touches. Alternative brew.

diabel (1677) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2012
Heavily lightly blond body with a white frothy head. Aroma of smoke, spices, flowers - not very appealing. Moderately bitter flavour; bit weak.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2012
750ml bottle. The pour yields a mostly clear, very lightly hazy, dark golden colored body. A thin, foamy, off-white blanket settles on the surface, leaving behind some splotchy, spotty, wet lacing. The nose is based in well-attenuated amber candy sugar and cereal malt, with notes of tart, lemony yeast and distant green herbal notes. The flavor follows suit, not as heavy on the oregano as one might think, but showing a bit. Again, amber candy and cereal grain are sufficiently dried by the herbal yeast, which flirts with tartness at times. The palate is standard Fantôme fare, moderate in body and relatively light on carbonation, showing substance, but also ample attenuation. Good brew.

14/I/2012 75cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012 - BB: II/12 (2012-33) Thanks to sebletitje for bringing the bottle!

Cloudy blond to beige beer, small white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit of pizza, lots of citrus, cleaning product, bit grassy. MF: good carbon, light to medium body. Taste: oregano is very present, citrus notes, bitter orange marmelade, spices and herbs. Aftertaste: citrus, fresh cut grass.

75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBWG 2012 – thx to sebletitje– hazy golden wheat colour with a white head, smell is weird to say the least, yeast, citrus air refreshers & spicy spices, taste is odd but even stranger it is odd in new and different but equally weird ways, there is so much oregano in this that it defies sanity, almost burning as it goes down your through, oregano can apparently be spicy, also hints of rosemary, cumin,… citrus, thick yeast, herbal, bitter as well, hay, barnyard, pretty much all around wtf, nice
