From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house on July 04 for the first beer I’ve brewed with him! 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy lemon colored bright yellow with a thick white head that falls slowly, forming a dense cap and a couple legs of lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a ton of lemongrass, but there is a huge floral grassiness to this that is interesting. The spiciness on the back end really is a deterrent for me. The flavor is very similar. Maybe a little more fruitiness to it, but it’s just so damn spicy and grassy. The mouth feel is surprisingly thick and softly carbonated for a saison. There is a light banana that joins the bright lemongrass and floral spice on the back aftertaste. This is interesting, but I’d never had a Fantôme beer before. It wasn’t spoiled, so that’s a good start.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow, smash white head, some lacing. Aroma is peppery, a bit smoky, field grass, whit grape, lemon. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, black pepper with nice fruitiness and a hint of smoke. Soft chsmpagnelike mouthfeel. I quite like this.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with white head and plenty of floaters sinking to the bottom. Light fruits, white wine notes, chardonnay and pinot grigio on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes much like a white wine, just has that type of a flavor to it.

Bottle from Wine Emporium 030716. All round is is a very good beer packed with flavours from spice to fruit. Looks great in the glass and tastes even greater.

Pours amber to deep amber, hazy with amazing dense off white head. Aroma is off the charts, complex with cypress tree, lavender notes, beachgrass(!!) notes. Taste is salinity, caramel, amazing and complex, I’m overwhelmed. Can’t judge anymore, I’ll just enjoy :)

Free sample courtesy of the brewer Dany @ Fantome, Soy, Belgium. Rating from a 75cl bottle from Dany, enjoyed at home. Pours a lightly hazy amber, good creamy off-white head. Aroma is spice and saison yeast. Taste is beautifully spicy yet has a sweet, almost wine-like yeasty depth. Mouthfeel is a bit scuzzy, but its sweet spicy vinous character really resonates with me. And judging by the amount of empty spice jars in the Fantome brewshed, Dany doesn’t hold back on the spice
