Fantome's winter offering, available December through March or so. Brewer Dany Prignon changes his receipes every year, so we can't so for sure what this year's beer will be like, but it is sure to please lovers of Dany's beers.

amber hue, two finger head that reduces to lacing cap. scent is dark fruits and dull earthiness. taste is similar with more emphasis on the fruit. mouth is typical Belgian light. slightly sweet, alcohol rears it’s warming self. mmmm... gonna seek this again.

Garrold (732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Sheffield. Cloudy, orangey, amber colour. Film of white head. Sourdough bread. Clove. Light ginger. Hint of anise. Taste is spicy dry. Plenty of creamy, buttery sweetness provides balance. Palate sees it through. A tad over sweet on the finish, for me, but very drinkable regardless.

allmyvinyl (2159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Big bottle from Brewdog online shop, shared with jeevan and the Mrs. Aromas are spicy and yeasty, not as sour as I’d have expected from my last Fantome encounter. Dry finish, saison yeast character. Good, but not WOW.
