3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber body, a lot of rising carbonation, lots of yeast suspended, biggish off-white head. Peach in the nose, with some dark fruit, and brett. A fair amount of brett in the flavor, sweet, candy notes, peaches, spicy. I used to like the horsey brett in a beer such as this, but less so now.

Flaske delt på Mandag i Annen, Cardinal sep-14: en fruktig og frisk saison med litt sødme kombinert med krydderier og overmodne bær. Høres kanskje ikke så godt ut, men den smaker jammen godt!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spiced Fantôme ale with sticky, off-white, rocky head and brownish orange blonde colour, cloudy. Aroma of orange, aniseed, apricot, gingerbread, honey, earth, sherry, hay, pear liqueur. Soft sweetish onset with subtle lemon acidity, refreshing, malty basis with nutty accents, perfumed spiciness clearly from added spices in the finish, I guess coriander and star aniseed, dry, leafy and peppery hop bitterness in the tail. Very saison, a bit barnyard like most of Fantôme’s creations but very tasteful.
