3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small head. Aroma is very strong with pungent rosemary, some citrus and grass. Flavour is very, very strong rosemary notes, orange peel, some basil, mild graininess, floral bitterness and mild yeastiness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Even though the rosemary is extreme, the beer is very well balanced with other flavours. Really fresh as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Big dense head. Lots of sediment in the bottle. Aroma is very herbal particularly Rosemary. And fresh light grain. Flavor is very herbal but more white bread sweet, aged hops and very piney, lots of Brett funk. Creamy dense feel. Intense in a way, probably a good food pairing, refreshing and great if you know beer by itself.

This saison was a bit too syrupy and sweet for me. It has some good notes but prefer the other fantome to this one
