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

A light yellow, hazy beer. Dominated by orange peel, slightly bitter. A little boring actually (that’s a bold statement for a fantome beer). I want to give the benefit of doubt that this beer is either too warm or not a great example, but I’m holding my breath. Still, better than a lot of stuff out there.

Tasted @ Dr. Bill’s party... thanks! Dark golden color with a small head and lots of lacing. Strong horseblanket aroma and taste. Very strong grassy notes through-out with hints of citrus in the flavor. very grassy aftertaste as well.

08.19.05 750ml bottle. Dark, hazed, and lovely sunrise golden below a thinly remaining film of white foam. Aroma is fruity and sweet like a tripel, but grassy and sharp like a ligher saison. Nice. Citrus and cotton candy, strawberry jam and lemon grass. Quite light and juicy throughout. Heaps of interesting juxtipositions make this brew a delight.

I had two samples of this at Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2005. The skunkiness factor was quite low and I thank the bottle-keeper for this as my experience with green bottles has been interesting. The beer had a touch of grassiness with some citrus and maltiness in there.

Lemony candy wheaty nose. Rich malt, grassy hops. The flavor is a lot richer than I expected but still refreshing. Alc. is present as are hops, plums & figs

Pours deep gold with a white bubbly head. Aroma is somewhat skunky and light lemons. Flavor is slightly oxidized with a great hoppy grassiness. Some band-aid flavors. Dry hoppiness. Pretty clean but that house character still shines through. Very refreshing, fruity enjoyable, and above all else, fascinating.

25oz - Aroma is pungent with wet hay, swampy green growth, and tons of spices. Pours a nice thick head over a cloudy yellow body leaving great lacing. Flavor is tangy and musty, layered with spice. The yeast and malt show up, but only for a minute. Palate is sticky and bubbly. An intriguing and fun brew.

Mon dieu ! Dites-moi pourquoi je boirais d’une bière de ressort en été ? De telles choses que je fais dans l’intéret de te de la bière. And while I enjoyed this and like the fruity character, deep down in the finish was an earthy, herbal note that I just didn’t appreciate. I guess it was that summer/spring conflict, n’est pas?

(750ml bottle) Pours a huge frothy head with a cloudy sediment-filled orange body. Lemon, acidic grapefruits. The flavour is tart, lemony, acidic oranges and coriander. Good stuff. Many thanks for sharing Lubiere...

Musty, barnyard aroma is lightly fruity with honeyish tones and an alluring, if gentle, spiciness. Hazy, tan-gold with decent white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Woody, caramel flavour has a fair bitterness in the long, dry finish, Plenty of grassy, herbal hop character mingles with the spiciness. Medium body with fair carbonation that is lightly effervescent. Sampled at Mondial de la Bière 2005.
