Tasted from bottle at RBSG. Light yellow color. A bit of skunky aroma (green glass perhaps?) Lots of carbonation. Very dry and thus not my preference.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Bottle, first batch, @ Ebenezer’s. Pours cloudy dark reddish-brown, big off-white head. Aroma is a hint of brown sugar, sour green apples. Taste is a quick initial hit of brown sugar, quickly overtaken by a fresh soft green apple sourness and hints of barnyard. Hint of very earthy hops poke through a good way into the mild, sour finish. Soft but crisp carbonation over a medium body.

Pours hazy chestnut with a two-inch head of beige. The dense foam receded slowly leaving some decent lacework before dissapating to a partial skim-coat. Aromatics lead off with a blend of caramel, nuts, green apples, bitter greens, freshly turned sod, strawberry tops, and cherry pits. Hints of almonds, freshly skinned bark, and musty cider follow through. Medium bodied, creamy and a bit crisp. Fairly dry and a finely carbonated mouthfeel. Light malt, cocoa dust, and apple skins start the pallet. Ripe fruit and grassy undertones follow through along with lemon-spritzed caramel. Finishes lightly tart with lingering cherry skins, fresh cut hay, and apple pulp. I was surprised at the restrained amount of sourness and acid. Very balanced, highly refreshing and extremely quaffable. Bottle courtesy of BA Delerium..Thanks bro!

Bottle @ ORL throwdown. Hazy gold with a fizzy white head topping it. On the nose I get apples, barnyard funk, grass, pepper, and a slight tartness. In the mouth its again fruity apples, pepper, hay, tart and sour. Drying, slight pucker to the finish. One of my favorite Fantomes of the evening.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a clear orange-amber color. A foamy, cream colored blanket leaves soapy lines of lacing behind. The aroma is complex, showing fruity, golden apples and pears in the forefront, followed by musty, earthy floral notes and a healthy dose of spicy white pepper. Flavors were even spicier than expected, with the pepper really pushing through to the front. Pale candied malts, orchard fruits, earthy wildflowers, and dry, leafy green spices are all well blended. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Really nice and unique. This is one of my favorite Fantômes.
