dukeredhair (242) - California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Aroma is a tiny bit flatter than expected notes of tropical fruits and flower with sweet malts. Pours amber with a large effervescent head. Taste is a real pleaser, bright fruits mango, pineapple, lavender, vanilla quite sweet but the palate is dry and sparkly which cleanses nicely. I truly refreshing one of a kind beer.

berlinmany (224) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Nose is an onslaught of spices. Black pepper,cumin,coriander and others. Grassy notes,lemon and barnyard exsist in the mix as well. Thin to medium bodied, carbonation pricks just a bit. Grassy,very spicy, i think ginger has entred the premises as well. Lemony saaz and a sneaky sugary sweetness tangle with all the spices. Palt malt backbone becomes more apparent as beer warms.

Bottle. Hazy blond and creamy white head. Aroma is lemongrass, rosemary, dank hops and skunk. Taste is tart, bretty, herbal with some citrus and candy. Light bodied and well carbed. Another weird one from Fantôme, which is not weird in fact. Good stuff anyway.

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 6, 2014
W aromacie miliony przypraw i ziół, trochę jak w becherowce, ponad wszystkie przebija się jałowiec, także kolendra, bardzo intensywny, choć niezbyt przyjemny, trochę jak środek na mole wieszany w szafie. W smaku podobnie, mocny jałowiec, gorzkie pestki z winogron, pieprz, kolendra. Przypomina gruita, dla mnie zbyt ziołowe, choć ma swoje walory (intensywność doznań).

JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at SSAN V. Hazy blong pour with quite a few floaties, nice white head. Aroma is really herbal, tons of rosemary, herbes de provence, lime juice, quite juicy actually. Taste is grassy, light sourness, herbs. rosemary, lime, nice and tart, fruity fantome saison profile is intact but covered in rosemary. Palate is nice round bodied but tstill super light on the tongue, fantome style. I’d still prefer just the regular saison but this was nice.

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Trycket i flaskan trycker nästan upp korken då kapsylen går av. Massivt skum och en disig gyllengul/orange vätska. Småbubblig, relativt torr blommig beska. Stor parfymerad kryddig doft med snittblommor, vårlöker, jäst, muskot, ingefära, kryddigt vitt vin. En stor kryddig saison med mycket karaktär och mycket god. Perfekt till fisk.

Holmen1 (2546) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2014
Flaske delt på Mandag i Annen, Cardinal sep-14: kveldens tredje fra Fantome, og denne har en nydelig bærfriskhet (men kommer ikke bærene om høsten og ikke om våren?). Tidlige vårblomster og sultaner? Syltet appelsin og mandarin. Høstsmaker - ikke vårsmaker. Litt krydder i tillegg. Veldig god!

Holmen2 (1016) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Muddy orange. Dense off-white head. Strong aroma and taste of slightly sour succade, lime, Christmas pudding, clementines and dried fruits. XL1 in taste, with evident bitterness. Fizzy mouthfeel. High drinkability.

AshtonMcCobb (2674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle shared at Brewdog Edinburgh with James Tulloch, BenH and allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden amber with a very thin head. Nose - very tangy indeed. Oranges through to lime pickle. There’s a spicy saison edge too. Taste - burnt orange to marmalade. White pepper. Palate - concentrated but the body and texture are long and tight. Overall - a very intense Saison.

Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, orange, some spices and flowers. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long malty, sweet and orange finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
