Thanks to Beerlando at Fantômepalooza 2011. Golden pour with thick white head. Spicy herbal notes, oregano and citrus aroma. Minty, dank herbal and bitter spice taste. A bit of a mish mosh of flavors.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2012
75cl green bottle. 2011 vintage. Aroma is grainy and fruity. Tons of grapefruit, really a lot of it. A tad of sweetness and some floral component. Aroma is a completely different beast, and definitely more complex. Starts kind of fruity again, then roasted notes. Coffee and licorica, some woodiness. Then a definite spiciness in the end: black pepper and yeasts. Fabulous. Good carbonation and medium body. This beer is ridicolously drinkable and tasty, complex and great. A unique treat. One of best Fantomes, definitely.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle courtesy of craytonic at the recent Fantome mega-tasting. Served in a Fantome tulip. Reviewed from notes. Pours a slightly-hazy straw color with a good white head and some light lacing. The nose has some slight floral notes with a bit of wheat and fruit behind. The flavor has some wheat and light citrus. Light earth. Light body and crisp carbonation with a very dry finish. Very nice.

Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Pours hazy dark golden with a large creamy white head. Barnyard and orange fruit. Tangerine, green herbs and spices. Oregano Italy dish like. Fresh and fruity and nothing less than odd - not that "were" not used to that!

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
In short: A differently spicy barnyard blonde ale. Original, complex, sessionnable. Great beer.
How: Bottle 750ml, capped and corked. Consumed very fresh 2 weeks after first rating
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a persistent large white head leaving lots of lacings
In long: The beer opens with a loud healthy pop. The nose is has a spicy character reminiscent of Fantome’s own Strange Ghost with rosemary, oregano and more. However the spiciness is not over-the-top like with Strange Ghost and the Fantome yeast signature comes through. Taste is more of the same. Doughy chewy pale malts, cheese, pineapples, flowers mash, barnyard, rosemary, oregano, light notes of coriander. The spiciness is really not overdone and the beer is highly drinkable. One of the very good Fantomes I’ve had and I slightly pefered this Piétrain Blonde over the regular La Piétrain (now called La Piétrain Ambré). I drank this beer sitting in the wild with a fantastic view on the great Transylvania mountains. Totally surreal moment. Did you ever have one of those days where everything is just perfect and you don’t fuck everything up by doing something totally stupid? What is that like?
