Bottle (ZBF06): Mild spice, sweet caramel. Suprisingly simple in flavour, yet very moreish. Refreshing.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Translucent and magnifying brass in color with an icy, bubbly sheet for the head and beady, cascading lace. Confounded aroma runs amuck with honeyed pinot grapes, greasy lemons, clean linen, subtled cackled white pepper and coriander, mandarins and mums. Flavor is blooming with herbaceous sentiments. Ragweed, pollen and pils malt cut through. Ginger and thyme. Quite the hoppy little number as well. Semi-sugar starved papaya flavors meld with rancid and sharp grapefruit rinds. Soured apricots, but never cresting. Lacks a certain fullness. Big, clean and bitter scrape takes a partial layer off the palate. Mildly effervescent, lacking sweetness, and even more hidden by the bitterness input. Slight trace of alcohol in the finish and prickly pincers tick at the tongue’s tip. Uninspiring.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2006
Bottled at ZBF 2006, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium - Dany told me it was still very young.
Murky, amber body. Off-white head. Very interesting, sourish aroma of horse blanket, earth, banana, tawny port. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour. Lightly bitter finish. Lightly to medium bodied. Lively carbonation. A nice Fantome brew.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2006
The beer upon its debarking the capped and corked 750ml green bottle sets in the glass a tarnished gold with a slight haze that clears after warming to the glass and room, the head is Herculean in size, creamy in texture and the color a bright white, as it slowly depletes the lace forms a thick and concealing sheet. Nose is a spicy mix of lime, wet wool blanket, sweet malt, and some wet fresh cut hay, start is sweet and has a nice grain presence, with a tartness at the back, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is mild in its acidity with a crisp tartness that lingers long on the palate. Fantome is a magnificent brewery that produces a great many beers I love

TURDFERGUSON (4043) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2006
big bottle from the Spirit Haus. pours a hazy ornage with a small white head. dissipates slowly. flowers and sour yeastiness dominate this one. a little citrus with that particularly fantome sour aftertaste. Still waiting for a fantome i like as much as the saison i had on tap at the moan and dove.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Leaves your breath minty fresh! Interesting beer light and really it does leave your breath kind of minty on the aftertaste. Dull light honey coloring. Head is small and lingers to nothing for a bit. Kind of a bready head nose. Malty light spicey. Alcohol is inperceptable. From Knightly Spirits in Orlando.

Slight sour aroma, with some flowers. Pours a light hazy brown. Light fruity, with a slight sour finish.

Lubiere (12765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Deeply hazy golden ale with a thick big bubbled white head. Nice spicey yeast aroma with notes of lemon, oranges and herbs. In mouth, funky herbal tatse, with lemony notes, and acid points. No alcohol noticed. Winter 2005

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 I love this beer! Beautiful, dense head appears orange-creme. Kind of subtle compared to most Saisons I’ve had (especially other Fantomes) but very quaffable and tasty. I tasted hints of beeswax and clove. Really! Definitely got the citrus peel thing at the end, but also malty and sour tang. Great mouthfeel.
