thill25 (232) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Shared at the lated O-Town tasting cortesy of beerlando...Poured orange with a lasting foamy, white head. Aromas consisted of spice, funk/must (in a good way), anise, sour fruits. The flavor was a refreshing blend of sour fruits (apples/berries), mustiness/earthiness, and spice. The palate was very carbonated, but the dry finish with that zingy sourness on the tongue really provided a nice punch!

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Warm, bronze-gold pour veiled by a thin, but persistent, creamy off-white head. Nose is floral meadow, apricot, and freshly turned soil. Flavor adds tart berries, a touch of fireweed honey, and a sublimely spicy ’forest floor’ earthiness. Extremely well balanced and drinkable. The finish has a mineral dryness to it, like licking the ancient stone of a rich, cool mountainside. Well balanced at 7% (although, I wish it could be lower). Another amazing concoction from one of my absolute favorite brewers.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Saison #4 consumed ’blind’ at the Pewaukee tasting. Very mild yeast aroma, a little citrus edge, some barnyard funk. cloudy blonde color. Sour bretty flavor, mild, refreshing. Sour funky finish. A hint of astringency in the finish.

What stands out in this beer is the lack of taste. The aroma is a mild must, cobweb. The body is light and the finish is dry. The lack of flavor is a major letdown especially when compared with other Fantome beers I have had.

I like Fantome for the fact that their beer isn’t like everyone elses. That whole farmhouse mentality really works for me. This beer is a pretty decent one, I don’t remember the aroma too much, but it was solid, nothing special, nothing bad. The flavor was very complex, there was fruitiness and some tartiness as well. Both mixed very well and created a beer that is very fresh and interesting.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - MAR 2, 2004
pours a hazy copper with a dense white head. aromas of apricot, orange, belgian yeast, pepper, vanilla. flavors of apple, orange, lemon, butter, peppery spices, peach with a hoppy bitterness. the body is light and spritzy and very dry. some clove, grassy, maybe anise. refreshing and citrusy like a belgian blonde but way more complex.

t0rin0 (76) - Do Not Resuscitate, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Had this twice, once in June 2010 (quite good, thanks Jason) and once in February 2011 (not as good, thanks Spence). Notes from the June 2010 tasting. Pours brown, hazy, small beige head with little lacing or retention. Aroma is mint, earth, oxidation, pepper, and caramel. Flavor is heavy on the mint and chocolate but also has a strange wine quality.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Rating#1Smelled great, and poured beautifully, but the taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Very, very good, nevertheless, but a little plain for a Fantome. It is, however, a very well rounded and drinkable beer. If other Fantomes are a little over the top for you, this may be your beer.Rating#2 Wow. What a different beer from the last time. This is very different, with sour lambic notes contrasting an almost dubbel-like maltiness. Delicious, but a much more aquired taste. I think Fantomes may blend better with age (this bottle was from a very fresh shipment) but must be stored with alot of care to keep from going bad. I’ll never know, cuz i can’t keep this around without drinking it.

The second Belgian I broke open for the family over T-day. 48f Cloudy amber Aroma of citrus with bright lime Umm. Citrus and more citrus in delicious layers. Lime is prevalent. Corona with lime, but on belgian designer steriods. Sour. Touch of chewy apple wood, mexican cinnamon stick. Refreshing! Stir the sediment for some spiced bread. enjoyed this with a variety of Bingham Hill and MouCo cheeses. Especially good with the fresh cheeses.

This beer got "the look". Orange color on the beer and light colored foam. The aroma tuch mature banana. The taste got a perfect balance. First it taste fresh citrus, then it goes to a very dry bitterness on the end. It calls for more!
