3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle. Poured medium orange with a lot of sediment floating around in there. The aroma picked up sour oak, lighter-skinned fruits, and a bit of sage.. interesting. The flavor found a bit of lime, toasty oak, and tropical fruit on the tip of the tongue, with oak and spices doing most of the work after that.. lime, oak, and passion fruit on the long finish. Medium-bodied with lots of carbonation going on.. OK feel, but it was a tad muddled.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from The Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazy pale gold with white bubbles. Aroma of funk, wood, earth, lemon, florals, rubber, and faint smoke. Flavor of lemon, florals, smoked and bready malts, brine, lime, and a lot of funk. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, funky, slightly smoky mouthfeel. Really unusual, but good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by phaleslu). Looks good; a hazy golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells good too; semi-sweet, funky, and bretty. Tastes like it smells, only milder, with some smokiness. Good on the palate. Interesting, and in a good way.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet, bought in 2012.
Hazy orange/brownish with a white head. Aroma of fruit, berries, yeast and light funk. Quite a lot of carbonation in this one. Fresh and nicely drinkable.

@Gyllenbock. Trevlig sötaktig doft. Smaken är fruktig och fin men den har inga särskilda saison-pregl. Frisk och trevlig ändå.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’ve continued to not buy Fantome beers. This is one of my last bottles. Date says 2010, enjoyed in a tulip.
A - Very big carbonation on the pour, champagne like bubbles fill the glass. Bronze appearance. Fades to a finger head from a 4 finger in a matter of seconds.
S - Very yeasty with caramel and a touch of charcoal on the nose.
T - Not bad up front. You get a sweet candy with caramel and honey and a touch of citrus and grassiness. Minor pie crust and tart tangerine tastes. Middle and finish are a mix of green tea and charred oak with peated moss and cigarette butts.
M - Medium body and mouth fill. residual sweetness at the finish.
O - Overall, it’s not a bad saison but the peat, charcoal and tea notes really take this down a few ticks.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - pours reddish amber with low white head with nice sticky retention S - a simple Belgian with overripe apples and candied sugar. The yeasts stand strong with the overly sweet backbone. M - average carb, medium body with a simple unenticing body. Palate is muddled and underwhelming. T - taste is a very metallic tinge to a fiercely Belgian beer. Heavy on the overripe apples, candied sugars and Belgian yeasts. O - sticky sweet and muddled 3.1
