Huhzubendah (2258) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt. Sampled alongside twenty other Fantôme beers. The beer appears a light yellow hue and fairly hazy, with a small white head and some decent lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers a lot of musty funk, more than is customary in a Fantôme beer. Additional scents of citrus, floral notes, and a very present spicy aspect. Unorthodox and intriguing. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Though complex, intriguing, and well crafted, I found a small serving to be plenty. Abundant spice is best in small quantities. Overall, an interesting beer and certainly worth a try, should you have an opportunity. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-08-2011

maekchu (1762) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Lemon, yeast, hay, glue, and barnyard. Cloudy apple juuice color, great lace and head. Big citrusy and barnyard initial (very much saison-like); mid palate has some peaches, pepper, and honey; finish is harsh, bitter and long. Thin-medium body. Very complex aromas and flavors. Really an in-your-face brew. It grows on you, and becomes more intriguing with each sip.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Pretty orange-gold color, cloudy, with a tall and fine head. Big lemon and orange aroma, minerals, barnyard. Funk-ass flavor with cabbage, lemon, esters, peaches, pencil lead, where pepper, and some tropical fruit. Very shocking and unpleasant at first sip, but grew to be very enjoyable, interesting, complex, and somewhat comical. Bitter finish, with funk as well, bitterness coming from all directions—hops, yeast, malt too I suspect. Crazy but (and) great.

ekstedt (5211) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle (75 cl), courtesy of ingo. Clear golden, large white head. Strange aroma with lemon grass, sprite soda aromas, general oily citrus peel aromas, lime, and some burnt rubber or shale. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. Strange, but surprisingly enough quite good.

laiti (4944) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
75 cl bottle @ vPBF, no BBE info
Aroma is slightly tart with some citron, orange and earthy notes. Flavour is tart with citron, some orange and hints of earthy notes. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Dry and tart finish. Some unpleasant papery notes occur at the end of the glass. Decent.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
750 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of apricot, biscuit and some maltiness. Flavour of strong tart apricot, farmyard, pale malts, floral hops, clove and some weak peppery notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a foamy mouthfeel. Not the most common Fantöme brew out there.
