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

GregClow (2891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Hazy amber colour, like unfiltered apple cider. Spicey and fruity aroma with hints of yeast, brown sugar and apple. Flavour is quite complex, and it was tough to find all the good stuff in there from just a small sample in the middle of a session of tasting 30+ beers. Nonetheless, it was very good.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
A light effort from the mad brewer. Amber colour, dry, yeasty, peachy and sweetish. A good dose of hops for the style. Good, but to me it’s like one of the really good Fantomes with all the fun stuff taken out.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
Hazy amber w/ sediment. Creamy, dense off-white head. Spicy, fruity, slightly yeasty aroma w/ a touch of soya sauce. Light, effervescent feel. Fruity & malty w/ a peppery finish. Some bitterness.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
Hazy caramel colour with a fluffy white head. Brown sugar and spice in the aroma. Slightest hint of tartness in the background.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Hazy/cloudy blonde/gold. White head, funky, yeast and spice nose. Not particularly as good as the other Fantomes Ive had recently. None the less, herbal, bitter, dry, citrus, cereal, spices, sour, tangy, dusty, dry. The more I had, the more I enjoyed it.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle. Thanks to Gazza for sharing this hugely expensive (£5.60!) bottle. Blond appearance. Fresh garden mint and nettles aroma. Softly spritzy. Mint again. Some bitterness. Lingering dryness. Wheaty finish, like those wheat cereals. Mildly interesting. £5.60 - I can’t get over that. I haven’t been impressed by the Fantome products I’ve tried, despite all the acclaim.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Fantome is one of my favorite breweries in the world, but I cannot say that this particular beer rises to the genius level of its other offerings. I note the great Fantomish aroma and I pick up some very cool woody and fruit notes just before the whole thing descends into a sourness that is overwhelming. I’m much happier with their basic, magnificent, Saison.

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2004
Bottle. Blonde color, cloudy. Strong peppery aroma with seaweed, licorice, coreander, orange and sesame seed. Sweetish flavor with lemon, grapefruit, licorice, sesame seed and coreander. Wit less emphasis on the added herbs this would be a great beer, now it’s a good beer.

rauchbier (3606) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2004
Tap, ZBF 2004. Faintly hazy gold, low white head and moderate condition. Spicy fruit and yeast in the nose with some cinnamon and mulled wine spices noticable, full bodied sweet and tangily spicy in the mouth and a powdery dryness in the finish, but still with a lingering spiciness.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2004
Cloudy golden color,small white head that faded quickly and left little behind.Nice light malt and fruity aroma mild hints of spice and orange.The flavor is nicely done with a mild orange and spice mild malt and a nicely done hop presence.I could definately see my self drinking a few of these after plowing the field.Very easy to drink and refreshing.Thanks to Nexxus for sending this fine brew.
