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

aleigator (395) - GERMANY - JUL 22, 2014
Orange-amber color, with a big froth head. Nose is full of herbs and vegetables, with hints of bitter, grassy hops. Comparable with a mild herb-liqueur. Taste is a herbal blend between bitter and sour notes, carried by slick yeast. Pharmaceutical, herbal spices become even more present towards the end, revealing a gentle bitterness, which is staying on the palate, when the spices have already left. Evokes a feeling in me, that this is probably better fitting for Autumn, as it carries a gentle warmth, with medium-bodied, earthy spices. Has an enjoyable balance, spices harmonise very well with the soft yeast, leading to an unusual taste.

Enjoyit (3572) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Hazy orange of color with a white head. An aroma of yeast, spice, dry, fruity and funky. A flavor of yeast, smoke, papaya, fruity, dry, spice and weak banana.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 27, 2014
Nice orange color with a firm head. There appears to be slight skunk in the aroma, DAMN IT! Otherwise below that, watermelons, apples, farmhouse and loads of funk. Nice acidity, like the bark of an green apple. Very subtle spices. Very complex yeast notes, slightly earthly but very fresh. Another winner from Fantome for me!

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Vibrant clear amber body sits beneath a 2" frothy off white head resultIng in a low lying peninsula and a couple random dots of lace

Balanced piney herbal floral dank peppery melon on a perfectly carbonated silky medium plus actively carbonated palate finishing creamy with sharp complex mostly herbal accents, a little weird and very good

lusikka (6946) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
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.
