4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks Dany! Cork explodes out with a gunshot-like bang, leaving 1/4 of the contents all over the countertop. A promising start! Weird, floral tangy aroma. Very saison-like, but not as funky as other Fantomes. Grassy, zesty and crisp in the mouth. Yep, it tastes like dandelions. A clean sweep of saison-like yeast throughout. Really spritzy, lemony character in the middle that is awesome. Refreshing and interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared champagne sized bottle @GrOve’s. Bright amber colored body, under a layer of beige bubbles. Sharp herbal, light lemony and floral aroma. Yeast notes and hint of grainy malts. Lemony, floral and herbal flavor, as well. Light grainy malt base. Light astringent and lively in the mouth. Medium full. Sharpish herbal endnotes. A little edgy, but drinks ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to pimp. Pours a cloudy yellow with large frothy off white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is floral, hay, lemon and funk. Thick mouthfeel with a dry lemon, spice, and some sourness with light funk and dry finish. Hides alcohol well, a very good saison from Fantome.

750 ml bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a somewhat cloudy golden color with a medium white head. A big fruity and Brett nose. The flavor is excellent: floral notes, berries, funkiness, deep dry earthy malts. Very nice.

En trevlig saison. Frisk och syrlig med smak och doft citrus, belgisk jäst, citron, gröna äpplen. Len och rund med en torr citrusskalsbeska. Gott.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @WWT II. Gusher! Pours a dark amber with a big white head that leaves quickly. Aroma is fairly tart and funky. The flavor is again quite funky, sour and tart notes. Very interesting brew, nut sure if I can taste the dandelions. Very sweet in the aftertaste. Decent!
