(Bottle 75 cl) I mean, just naming a beer "Flop!" must indicate a great sense of humour and self-irony - unless flop means something completely different in French? Anyways, very dark brown with a reddish hue and a huge head. As most Fantomes this is heavily spiced, this time almost peppery, but rather delicate. Another innovative creation from Danny Prignon. 270601

Sweet spicey yeasty nose with a touch of wildflowers and crayons. Amish freinship bread starter, cinnimon, clove predominate the flavor with a little acidity and sourdough and white bread. Firm mouthfeel and a flowery spicey finish

Bottle. Poured cloudy tan with aromas of typical Fantôme yeast and malty. Taste is slightly bitter with barnyard flavors, sour apple and light malts. Not my favorite Fantôme but a rare treat to enjoy.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Pours with a very cloudy body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing. The arom and flavor are slightly sweet yet sour and grassy wtih a slight tartness. Light to medium bodied and dry.

A huge thanks to Mark for sharing this bottle. This is probably something I would have never tried otherwise. Hazy dirty orange in color with an extremely large and lasting head of foam. Aromatics of of a well pronounced fruitiness (pear, apple, peach), hints of coriander and yeast. Fruity and spiced in the flavor. Another distinct, supple and perfect saison from the Fantome brewery.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 I don’t like other people’s opinions. This was a very nice beer. A nice funky beer from recently unfunky fantome. The aroma bled in funky green apples with a dab of italian leather couch..A big fluffy cloud lay above the cloudy orange pond..nice spritzy mouthfeel with effervesence galore..grapes, apples, and a pile of yeast..firm champagne notes..and bretty..real bretty, similar to Mo Betta Bretta actually...I like it..Its spritzy but complex, bretty and nice and funky to boot.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2009 Pours a deep cloudy amber hue. Aromas of tobacco, pine malt. Flavors of celery, sour, with a slight bitterness. Funky, but not in the best way.

Thx to whomever shared this at the O’Briens gathering last nite. An opaque brownish pour, w/ lots of different spicy, tangy notes in the flavor, it’s another funky flavored fantome

Bottle Bottle opened with a plof (flop (?!)), so all the yeast inside was mixed in the beer due to the explosion. And there was plenty of yeast in the bottle! :s Therefore this one has an muddy orange-brownish body, with lots of small particles. It had a white, mostly diminishing, creamy head. Nose of malts and citrus. Moderately acidic intitial flavour. Moderately bitter finish.

I was surprised this was not on the list. Found in the Wijn en Bierboetiek in The Hague. Orange brown color, cloudy with a lasting head. Herbal aroma, coreander maybe? Citrus. Herbal bitter flavor, yeasty. I found laurel, a hint of cinnamon, and probably many others I couldn’t identify. Fantome beers are of good quality, but Dany Prignon does experiment too much for my taste.
