oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is spicy, earthy, barnyardy as well as some mild fruits and mild maltyness. Flavour is quite much the same in a very pleasant balance.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2006
Corked bottle
The cork popped with a loud sound; light amber color; fizzy head, small; nice perlage. Aroma of old malt, fresh wood, cellar. Medium body structure, some malt flavor; it has a nice woody astringency, tart, Belgian hops, good level of bitterness. Interesting and very good.

harrisoni (14021) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Golden cloudy colour with no head. Sour lemon and other good citruic fruits. Finish has good fruits. Bit of farmyard. Somehow I detected lentils in the taste as well. More citric lime on the finish. My first Fantome, I think and it has stirred my interest to try others.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Very cloudy beige. Funky, spicy, sour aroma - you know this is Fantome right away. Lightish, flowery (chamomile), funky and acidic. Probably one of the more straightforward Fantomes but quite delicious nonetheless. A statement in understatedness.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 (750ml bottle) My Halloween beer. Had an incredible pressurized cork, which shot out of the bottle after I un-capped it. Shot up hit my ceiling and bounce about five foot off the floor. I would have to say this one was certainly alive. Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange body with a huge frothy white head. Aroma was tart with grapefruit, spearmint, clove, corriander, florals, perfume, mustiness, Granny Smith apples, and spices. Flavor had gueuze-like characteristics for the aroma and flavor. Quite differnet for a saison, but then again this is a Fantome. Excellent beer!

argo0 (11595) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 17, 2010
75cl bottle, at least five years old. Large off-white head atop murky apple juice body, a light layer of dead yeast on the bottom of the glass. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon/tart, some funk, straw/grass, musty. Taste is medium sweet, straw, some funk/barnyard, light lemon. Effervescent light-medium body.

bhensonb (11391) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 11, 2007
Aroma of malt, spice, citrus, and something earthy. Beautiful orange amber color with a vigorous white head that stays and laces. Starts lightly, very lightly sour, with fresh fruit flavors. Not so much citrus as stone fruit and/or melon. Quite a full mouthfeel. Vigorous, but non-acidic carbonation. The finish is more remnants of sour than bitter. A good, dry finish. It’s really very refreshing.
