Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
Delirium Cafe Cloudy orange, sedimented ale wearing a large, but quickly fading (for Fantome) off-white head of big bubbles. Herbal, agressively spicy, orangey, juicy almost nose filling the nose with fruity esters aplenty, but in a sea of dust. Highly effervescent in mouth, but rather thin bodied. Important sour bite shows more of the initial herbal characteristic in a woody fashion, but not barrel-like, dirty, earthy branches more so. A rather dirty ale, usually, that would be a quality for a Fantome, but the sourness is a bit too much once intermingled with all those spices.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma of grape fruit, yeast, spices (mainly clove), citrus and dust. The flavour is sour with grape fruit and citrus, spiced with mainly cloves, yeast, wet hay, bitter hops and a sour spiced bitterish finish. Strange interesting brew.

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle 75 cl. [Trade with thewolf] large fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Hazy brown like color. Aroma of spice, pepper, sour notes of spontaneous fermentation (This is of cause not a Lambic), light barnyard and dust, some vinegar like notes as well. Medium to almost full bodied because of the very spicy aroma. Average fizzy carbonation. Moderated sour flavor with light sweet notes. Peppery like finish.

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from oeltorvet.dk. A hazy dark yellow with a fine creamy little head. Aroma is very powerful, and very spicy. There are lots of herbs, thyme and pepper. Some apples and hops as well. Flavour is equally powerful and mysterious. There are still herbs en masse, a distinct sourness to it, oranges, apples, cardemum and a very powerful oakyness. Mouthfeel is lively, but full.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Hazy golden red with an enormous off-white and slightly pink head that tries to espace from the bottle on it’s own. The aroma has that signature Fantôme of craziness. Tart yeast elements with sweet apples, bright spices and fragrant hops. Wood, mushrooms, dry bread, sweet apples, lemon zest, white pepper, basil, light acidity, earthy Noble hops and perfumey flowers. The body is fairly full, especially for a Saison and the carbonation is strong and lively. The acidity is probably the strongest part of the flavor profile. The rather sweet, fruity suggestions from the nose seem to be hopelessly lost. There are some rather developed elements resulting from the always interesting and unique Fantôme yeast. The flat fruit and malt is severly dominated by the yeast, strong herbs and spices and the bitter hops at the finish. The alcohol comes out a bit more than most Fantôme offerings, but it’s nothing unbearable. Definitely one of the stranger creations from this most unique brewery. Enjoyable, but not something I would/could drink very often. Thanks Martin; I owe you!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2006
75 cl bottle. Clear amber colour with a nice but fast disappearing head. Aroma of spices and yeast. Speciel flavour of pepper, spices, yeast and ends up little sour but have a refreshing finish. Defently a speciel beer...

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2005
Bottle. Muddy orange colour with a small dissapering white head. Sour yeasty, fruity aroma and a sweet sour yeasty, caramel, dusty wood taste. Medium body and a sweet sour finish. Strange beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
Murky orange beer with a thin and fast disappearing white head. Yeasty and fruity aroma, quite acidic. Buttery, yeasty flavor with a caramel sweet finish.

Ungstrup (34327) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
Another explosive beer from Fantome. The color is a murky orange from the disturbtion the yeast gets when opened, and it has no head. The aroma is dusty with light notes of oranges, but also prunes. The flavor is sweet spicy with notes of wood and prunes, as well as light notes of alcohol. The end is dry and slighlty dusty (from the hops).
