SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Beautiful deep musky smell, like a mix of buffalo hide and fresh wildflowers. It has a wonderful glowing orange tone with a creamy tan head. Starts off with a twangy tart Belgian style yeast tone, but quickly gets very wild, an interesting blend of lemony sweetness, pine-dandelion bitterness, and one hell of a yeast character. The alcohol is superbly masked in a cacophony of complexity.

750 ml. bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of fruit, spice, yeast, malt, and spice. Taste is the same. Dry and tart finish. Decent.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a hazy golden/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of spices, some light spice from the yeast, a little fruit, a good amount of pale and caramel malts, and a light dough/toffee note. The taste was similar with some hints of tartness.

Strykzone (4831) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. Dingy goldenish. A blotchy off white head. A bit of funky earthy lemon. Somehow. Some grass and pale malts. A bit of earth and bitterness. This is a nice beer. A good summer time drink.

Thank God, this looks like the last fantome. This was poured into a snifter and a tulip. There was a light glossy orange color with some bronzed over brownish sort of color. There was barely any head and lacing. The smell had a leathery funky and overly sour. The taste was putrid as I thought I was tasting shoe leather from the late 1800’s. The palate was super dry as it seemed to have sucked my mouth dry and wounded my taste buds to have this beer to be somewhat enjoyable. Overall, I’m so glad to be done with fantome as I will never try any of their beers ever again.

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2014
Pours cloudy dark golden. Nose is malts with some sourness. Taste is standard saison with spices and lots of sourness. I don't like the combination of the acidity in this beer.
