3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Scott’s Summer Saison tasting 2014. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Super dusty, husky, corn, almost medicinal, vanilla, and caramelly aroma. Taste is tangy, corny, light lemon, grassy, some spice, wood, and stone fruits with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Cool tick, but kind is weird.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Doodler. Thanks. Hazy orange appearance with a cream colored head. Very dusty, hay, a bit toasty aroma with some tangerine, caramel, and apricots. Very minty, spicy herbal flavor with some guava and tangerine. Kind if strange.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased off a random beer site I believe, cant really remember. Opened at Fantomefest 2014. Hazy burnt orange in color with maybe a half fingers worth of medium to large bubbles. Good head retention as I drink my sample. Nose is slightly vegetal, I get notes of tomato almost? Flavor is somewhat vegetal as well while being lightly tart with notes of peach and other stone fruit. Light bodied, well carbed, very crushable. Nice beer, very happy to give this one a whirl.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour, whitish head. Flavor is a bit odd(shocker, right?). Tropical fruit, citrus, grapes, honeydew, hay, yeast. Some oxidation was noticeable. This brewery is just weird...but fun.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a murky brownish amber pour, darker with frothy head. Laces small. Darker body. Aromas are rich potent citrus, tons of grapefruit, peach, grapes, and more melon. Big grapefruit, peach, tartness. Saisin yeast, gentle funk, sourness. Initial is more bland, bready, doughy, straw, bit oxidized. Mellow body with some gentle yeast, dryness, florals. Gentle sweetness, florals, grass. Touches of yeast, luden or herbal coolness. Odd. Backend is a bit more dry, spicy, grassy. Nose really offers a lot, falls off for me. Meh

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from rbsg #62 poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to large sized bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy light brown colored body. Hmm, no flavor aroma or mouth feel notes. I must have been pretty lit by then. 62 beers at one event. Nice! A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
Sampled alongside twenty other Fantôme beers.
The beer is a light orange color and appears mildly hazy. Good head retention with plenty of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the smell of apples. A dash of spice and funk are in there as well, but apples steal the show. The tastes follows suit. Perhaps an appropriate choice for the autumn season? The feel on the palate is a bit sharp, but I wouldn’t describe it as harsh. Overall, one of the weaker Fantôme beers of the evening.
