shrubber85 (7387) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle. Primarily a musty aroma with fruit tones. Orange yellow with large, quick collapsing head. Light apple juice flavor transitioning to a musty, dry flavor - very much dry wine-like. A nice drier saison.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle at London gathering, November 2005, courtesy Joeh (I think). Some people reckon Fantome beers can be a bit hit or miss but I can’t say I’ve ever really had a dodgy one. This one hits the spot. Hazy orange colour. Distinctly funky, with some cheesy undertones. Lots of sharp citrus and a slightly sour note on the palate, although there’s some subtle residual sweetness, lending a bittersweet feel. Classic saison with just a little je ne sais quoi extra.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2004
2004 Gathering at Tiggmtl: Lighlty cloudy golden with a thick white head. Rich semi-sweet caramely farmhouse aroma. Body is light and effervescent with a nice licorice, anise, and toffee flavor. Overcarbonated and a little off-balance, but still a decent brew. Thanks to whoever brought this bottle to the gathering.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma found crazy funky barnyard and vinegar throughout.. mild spicage.. bit too much funk that was hard to go beyond. In the flavor the funk was more restrained than in the aroma.. lemon and vinegar sourness at the core with dusty, wheaty yeast above.. nice one. Sour on the palate with dry dusty notes going outward.. felt decent at best.

Old ass bottle. IT is big time oxidized, some minitiness and cardboard, some spices.

bb (6797) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Bottle. Reddish-amber-honey color with a thin white head. Sour aroma with some lemon. Sweet/tart flavor with lemon and some spiciness. A bit refreshing. Mixing in the yeast adds a touch of vomit that isn’t all that unpleasant. Here’s my take on this beer - it seems like the people who rate it high don’t mention a sour/tart flavor. The people who rate it low notice this. Infection? Who knows. But my bottle wouldn’t have been a bad gueze, but it wasn’t what I was expecting with it’s almost Cantillon like sourness.

Skinnyviking (6793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle. Fluffy white lasting head. Clear golden body. Spicy malty fruity aroma. Spicy fruity leomon pepper hoppy flavor with har carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle shared by Savvy1982 at the 2010 RBSG Grand Tasting. Poured a very cloudy amber gold with a light brown head that lasted. Aroma was very funky with barnyard and menthol coming out. There was some nice underlying floral and sour fruit notes as well. Flavor was funky with dry tart apples the main note with some funk underlying.

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2004
Flavor is clear and fresh, sour and astringent. Aroma has the sourness. Colour is orange, medium head.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 13, 2004
Aroma: Soft, slightly earthy, soft spice with yeasty touch, some orange element is present. Thick, stiff bright white head, cloudy bright amber, chunky yeast. Medium soft with yeast and vanilla, highly carbonated. Mellow overall, but carbonation is too high. Nice medium body, softer finish.
