Light, fruity and champagne-like. Fantôme brews special seasonal beers, never repeating a recipe from year to year. This one is for spring . . .

Garrold (3043) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Belgiuminabox.com. Lightly hazy, pale gold. Film of lasting, white head. Wow. Medicinal. Clove. Sticking plaster. Star Anise. A lot of Fantome in there, beyond the bonkers. Taste is fairly sweet. Bready dry. Lots of body. Easy drinking, soft, airy palate. Finishes with more of the clove thing. Bitter close, that lasts well. It’s a Fantome. It’s a bit bonkers. Very nice. Gets more bitter as it goes along.

Lowenbrau (2761) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
750ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. January 2015.
BBD: have to check, but it was quite fresh.
In short: "balsamic" saison.
Pours very hazy deep gold-orange with frothy off white head. Short head retention, good lacing. Balsamic nose, some cardamom, coriander one. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is litle sour, herbal, again the balsamic flavours. A bit palate saturating and dry.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a barely cloudy yellow-gold with a small white head. I immediately get a strong Band-Aid note out of this one, almost to the extent of burning rubber and plastic, with notes of lemon citrus, herbs, bready malts, mint, juniper, and grass. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel that is both artificial and plastic-like, and herbal and clean. It’s simultaneously compelling and off-putting. One of the more intriguing beers I’ve had in a while, but so strange.

750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with friends. Cloudy orange golden color. Thin white head. Dots and ropes of lace. Interesting aroma. Friends are saying band-aid, but I’m not sure that I’ve smelled enough bandaids to pick up on that. I get some peach, and maybe something latexy and unnatural in there, not too bothersome though, more interesting... Ok starting to get a hint of bandaid in there. Flavor is more of what I described above.. Kind of smokey, big bandaid, spice, and peach. Something like burning plastic. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Light bit of bite in the end. Really grows on me as I go. Interesting tasty stuff. So unique, can’t really put my finger on exactly what I like about it, but I dig it. A bigger unique yeastier flavor.. Yeast seems to contribute to a bit of a bite on the finish, but I dig the flavor. Great full chewier body. Tasty stuff.

esp0r (2459) - NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, massive beige head. Smell of carraway, clove, thyme, other mediterrian spices from the provence district, yeast esters and light malts. Moderate sweet, distinct herbs and spices, fruity yeast flavors, some fruit peel as well. Moderate bitter, herbs all over the place. Superb and different, would work quite well with italian pizza and pasta dishes. Another great saison from Fantôme!

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o kolorze pomarańczowym z złocistymi prześwitami. Piana piwa jest spora i bardzo trwała. NOS : piwo ma zapach tarty, kwiatów dzikiej róży, lawendy, nasion kolendry, maki pszenicznej, pomarańczy lub bardziej dyni...ogólnie bardzo złożony aromat. USTA : piwo ma spore nasycenie i średnio gęstą konsystencje. Miękkie i kremowe. Średnio słodkie o nutach słodowych przypominających tarte owocową. Wytrawne owoce moreli i mandarynek również nadają piwu słodkawy smak. Piwo delikatnie kwaśnieje, szczególnie w posmaku gdzie nuty przypraw i kwiatów są bardziej wyraźne i cierpkie. Gorzkość znikoma. Ogólnie piwo bazuje na mocnym aromacie kwiatowym i przyprawowym a w tle morele, estry i słody na styl belgijski. Alkohol dobrze ukryty ale po kilku łykach rozgrzewa. ODCZUCIA : bardzo dobrze skomponowane piwo. Świetnie pijalne tylko trzeba wziąć poprawkę na 8% alk. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Odd, peppery, plasticky-medicinal aroma. Smells like you might rub it on a cut. Foggy blonde. Thin white head. Tastes like antiseptic, spicy, slightly mineral and sour. Lightish body, astringent finish. Didn’t finish the sample. Thanks to someone for sharing this at Baby Proof.
