4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoyed at L’autre Oeil. Pours a reddish brown with a small white top. Aroma is lightly farm. A little fruity and a light grain to the nose. Taste is a little sharp with a nice cherry finish. Light sourness and farmy, really enjoyed this and nursed it for a while.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.
Sampled alongside twenty other Fantôme beers.
The beer is a hazy yellow hue, with a small white head and moderate lacing. The aroma offers citrus, yeast, floral hops, funk. Another tasty offering from Fantôme. Well balanced and full of flavor. Medium bodied with just under average carbonation. Really smooth on the palate. Great feel. 8% abv is surprising, as this is pretty easy to drink. I would definitely have this again.

Bottle. from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours like hazy lemonade. Slight white head at first that quickly fades to a halo. No real lacing. Aroma is slightly of weed with lemon zest. Taste is lemon, slightly funky, grassy. Very sweet, dry finish. Like a light champagne.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a bit hazy deep golden color with a big foamy three finger head... nice lacing and a bit of sediment floating in the body... Aromas are noble hops, warm spice, yeasty, rustic herbal. On the palate its alot of the same... a big grassy flavor profile thats balanced with earthy notes of rye, herbs ad a touch of ripe apple. A bit sticky on the back end but a pleasant drinker all the way through.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is nice and strong, with some noble hop aroma plus notes of spiciness (coriander?) and that farmhouse yeast aroma. Taste is fantastic, with some well balanced bitterness up front followed by some noble hop flavor and then notes of barnyard, spiciness and it finishes with a very nice biting saison dryness.
