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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
