3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unknown vintage. Hazy amber body with a moderate fluffy white head, and some nice lacing. Mildly sour aroma is a bit muted. Flavour starts out mildly sour with some nice maltyness and some vague yeasty spice. Finish has a mild lingering sourness. Palate is a bit light but nice. Surprisingly little here, not sure if its the beer or a bit of palate fatigue, but I expect more complexity from a Fantome than I found here. Toronto Christmas Party 2004.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured cloudy dark brown with a rocky, quickly disappating head. Big funky aroma of sour cherry, oak, and spice. Flavor was also funky with yeast and spice dominating, with hint of sour fruit in the background. Very carbonated, but not overwhelmingly so.
If Fantome makes a bad beer, I haven’t found it yet.

(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a huge rocky beige head. Aroma of raisins, plum, brown sugar, sweet malt, and yeast. Flavor of yeast, dark fruits, and spices.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2004 Bottled: Murky looking beer. Reminds me of sludge. Cinnamon is dominating the aroma and flavour. Has some delicious rubber notes. I hope this beer is infected, otherwise this is one of the most shitty beers I’ve ever had.. Definately has to try another beer, but this rating will stand till then.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
98 Bottle. Woodsy and alcohol aroma. Lots of crazy things going on in my nose. Very sour and tart. The spices must have mutated quite a bit over four years. I liked this one quite a bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spicy and peppery with some clove. Very opaque orange color with white fluffy head. Lots of yeast. Too peppery for me w/hops aplenty. I think Fantome’s Pissenlit is far better. I didn’t detect any cinnamon.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Looks like a Caffrey’s when it is poured, but the head just disappears - even though it almost blew a hole in my cealing when it opened itself. The aroma is yeasty and spicy. The flavor is of yeast and cinnamon - especially the cinnamon has been put in, in enormous amounts. This is too much for me.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours muddy milky brown with a foamy light tan head. Strong cinnamon aroma with herby tones. Also dominating cinnamon notes in the harsh flavor. This is almost like eating a liquid stick of cinnamon!! Cocoa tones. Harsh, dry and very weird. I wonder what is going on at that brewery?!?!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sourish and spicy aroma. The cork on this beer popped by itself. Pours like bailey with a gigantic head, but disappears fast. Spicy and sour flavor, wuite gross. One more time, i dont get what people see in these saisons? And Fantome is a fuckin weird brewery, start brewing some good stuff goddammit!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 perhaps the best saison I have had. It is very nicely and aggressively hopped, without overpowering spice, pleasant appearance,
