Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Bottle. Smells like a really mild geuze. Kind of sweet nose. Sour, fruity, earthy, bitter hops. Not bad.

hopdog (9167) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured a dark, murky brown color with a huge (5 finger) off white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, fruits and light spices. Light caramel also in the taste. Malty sweet (brown sugar). Easy to drink. The alcohol content was well hidden.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 I have only had a few Saisons so I don’t know what to expect from the style yet. This one was far different from the others. I would have called it a gueze. Dark orange with a large off white head. Fruit and yeast aromas. Flavors of yeast and barnyard; light fruit, and sour. Refreshing; seems more like a summer beer. I didn’t notice the alcohol at all. Stay away if you don’t like a sour beer; but I do and this one is great.

eleusis (70) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2005
750ml bottle. Good, smooth... but a little too sweet. Tastes almost like caramel at times. I’d drink it again, and would definitely try other fantome choices. Its subtle.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Sweet, herbal aroma - Fanome it is, some funk, some wise brewing techniques and some x mark. Herbal, fruity, spice and alcohol.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2004
Fruit, yeast and farm field aroma, murky brown, some reddish hue at the sides, small custard head. Bitter, woody flavour, some fruit, akin to grape and cherry skins. Medium bodied, tart and quite a dry finish. Pretty nice version. Many Thanks to whichever of My Guests brought this along!

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 26, 2004
Red and orange in colour with minimal carbonation. A veritable flurry of aromas: light malt, citrus and grassy hops, apricot, chocolate, and mint. The flavors are just as wild, with more chocolate and mint, horse blanket, yeast, red licorice, Christmas spices, and a bit of lactic sourness. Wild and fun! Even with all of these flavors going on, nothing seems out of place. No one flavor gets in the way of another.

750 ml bottle. Brown in color with a nice huge tan head. Hoppy aroma. Funky. Chessy. Nice beer.Malty and hoppy flavor. Smooth finish. Enjoyable.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2004
750 ml. Brown with a huge tan head. Funky hop aroma, which I am guessing is the SG hop. Nice and funky. Flavor is malty and hoppy, with a touch of chocolate. Smooth finish. This is real nice and enjoyable. Nice malt profile.
