75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge off-white and slowly collapsing head. dry and citric brett aroma. Citric, dry and yeasty flavoured. Mild malty note with a hint of caramel and mild bitterness mixed with a more intense citric brett note. Dry and fruity brett finish.

Ungstrup (34215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2004
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.

oh6gdx (25127) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is barnyard, lots of spices and herbs. Flavour is spices, yeast, herbs and some hints of caramel. Quite brutal, but balanced. Semidry palate. With yeast in it gets a bit more bready and solid from the spicyness.

(Bottle 75 cl) Beautiful reddish beer, slightly hazy with a decent head. Typical Fantome spicyness although I cannot pinpoint which spices. Some hints of licorice. Nice. 240501

Travlr (21167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Dark ruby red, slightly cloudy with almost no head, just fine bubbles. Decent lacing. Wow, lots of funk here. Like Butterfingers bars stored in dirty sweat socks. In a good way. Taste starts with creme brulee and progresses to sour and spice, then ends with a dry finish. Obvious brett and lacto. Great body. A fascinating and unusual brew, unexpected characteristics for a winter beer. I bought two bottles to store, I’ll let you know how it evolves.

If a 6 existed for the appearance, it would be for this one, that I poured in a giant glass of the original Cuvee de l'Ermitage.
Cloudy brown-amber color; rocky, giant, persistent, creamy head.
Very nice malt aroma, pretty barley-wine like, with a very nice freshness at the end, given by the hop and the spices (coriander, almost turning to black pepper); very good Belgian woody example.
The body is pretty much equilibrated, being enough malty, bitter and complemented by some pleasant sourness which makes of it more appropriately a Fall beer than a Winter one; some citrus fruits acidity at the end, introducing a final much similar to a orange peel bitterness.
