Appearance: pours with a huge beige head that settles down into an incredibly dense head that towers above the rim of the glass, beer is a light gold color, very hazy Aroma: really strong funk from a barn yard, alcohol, lemon, pungent Taste: orange coriander on top of a very strong funk from the farm, alcohol, some sourness, some tart Palate: average to soft c02, funky aftertaste, heavier mouthfeel Overall: takes a while to pour this one down but looks awesome when done, has a lot of funk all around which I like when go for this style, definitely recommended, complex ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vint 2012: Pours a nice golden ale with a solid finger of tight, white foam. Smells a bit skunked, with a good herbal character, some sage, mint and grass, soft and sweet yeast with a bit of clay and coriander. Hints of noble hops and a bit of cigarette butts. Flavor is bitter, with accents of corn, medicinal bitterness, manure, a bit of hay and oxidized grain. Medium bodied with limited carb and a dry finish. I’m torn on this beer, it is very, very complex – but do I like it? I certainly respect it. The nose is beautifully intriguing, and yet the flavor is a little disappointing. I imagine the 3f gueuze fan to really like this one, but it is a little too funky it seems for my liking. I am confused as to whether this is actually skunked, as the beer was stored in a store, albeit in the back of a shelf, out of maximum light…. Who knows. It has some character that would make me think this has some pilsner stylizing to it. Serving type: bottle 09-14-2012

Corked bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Yellow - gold pour with a big frothy white head. Aroma is yeast funk, cheese, pepper. Tastes are dank herbal, lightly tart, oak, hay. Strange head and spice in the bitterness. Nice yeasty dry finish.

A: Hazy Golden Straw/Orangish Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head, Decent Lacing S: Yeasty, Grassy, Hay T: Yeasty, Hay, Belgian Sugars M: Decent Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Semi Drying Overall, this beer gets better with a little warmth and comes off very yeasty but the belgian sugar finish was pretty nice.

annunz123 (848) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pleasant aroma with lemon, caramel, hay, and maybe a little strawberry. Bittersweet flavor starts fruity and spicy--seems like ginger, basil, and pepper to me. Peppery spice and drying alcohol finishes a very different, very good beer.

tectactoe (1448) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Mike! Bright orange tinted with yellow; cloudy and musky with a few bits of floating sediment. Foamy, white head is close to fizzy and only lasts for a few moments. Aroma is lemon, lemon zest, borderline Lemon Pledge (with the heavy solvent aspect) from the small woodsiness, some pear, citrus, & even a touch of banana. Moderate clove, white pepper, & a ginger-like spice as well. Funk is "light" for a Fantome. Very mild wet hay & yeast. Taste is unique, different, & strange. Lemon, more sweet than tart, with lots of spice; cardamom, white pepper, clove, ginger, and a cluster of other things I can’t identify. Light rotten banana, sweet pear, and more finishing lemon zest. Notable caramel malt and thick bread in the underbody; aftertaste of lemon & Pez candy. Unique and pretty good.

Pours golden. Smells of barnyard and soot. Orange rind, ash, sweet basil on the taste. Finishes peppery and lemony. Just lovely
