Glouglouburp (5929) - 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?

Bottle from Slayer85. Hefty herbal, minty hop nose, light cereal malt. Taste is fairly dry, moderately hoppy, lots of fresh mint leaves, some sweet basil, light hay. Very nice.

Bottle courtesy of ryan. Orange tinted yellow pour with a lots of haze and a thick fluffy white head. Peppery hay like aroma. Light floral notes. Peppery biscuit flavor with a hint of smoke. Very bitter grassy finish. A bit rubbery.

boFNjackson (4025) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle... Poured cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Nose had some botanical, spruce/juniper tones. Reminded me of gin a little bit. Flavor was totally different with a mild malt sweetness, some crazy barnyard funk. With citrus, grassy earthiness, and lots of spiciness. A little chemical smokiness too.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2011
750ml bottle, pretty fresh. Pours a cloudy, glowing, orange-amber color with a thin, foamy blanket of off-white to beige tinted foam. Splotchy flares of lace mark the glass. The nose is suggests an odd, mildly smoky overtone amidst a straw-like malt base, with notes of house Fantôme minty-tart yeast, hibiscus petals, and softly peppery spice. The flavor is a bit more clean, dropping off much of the smokey phenols, and filling out with a rounder, doughier malt profile. It is again very floral, touching on dusty, dried hibiscus, with secondary notes of lemony pith and white pepper. The body is ever so slightly less substantive than your standard Fantôme, drinking a bit easier than usual, carbonated nicely, and finishing out somewhat dry. I’m not crazy about the nose, but it is otherwise a very fine brew.
