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.

Sigmund (5021) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
750 ml capped and corked green bottle, as Fantôme Printemps Saison (Belgian ale brewed with spices), Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8%. Orange colour, large head, slightly off-white. Interesting and unusual aroma of exotic spices, fruit and saison yeast. Quite sweet flavour, again distinct notes of exotic spices (can’t identify which ones), some fruit, a peppery bite in the finish.

Alengrin (1210) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The spring version in this series and again (frustratingly...) changing recipe each year. Orange blonde with snow white head, cloudy, with a very fruity, yeasty aroma, soft maltiness, exotic fruits, dryish and a bit earthy, funky accent in the finish, bit sourish, spicy. Complex and fascinating like all of Danny Prignon’s beers.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Poured an orangish yellow color with aromas of strawberries, hay, and burnt rubber. flavors matched the aromas, not sure if the rubber flavor should be there or not, this happened to me now on 3 bottles so not sure...

aleigator (200) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2014
Orange-amber color, with a big froth head. Nose is full of herbs and vegetables, with hints of bitter, grassy hops. Comparable with a mild herb-liqueur. Taste is a herbal blend between bitter and sour notes, carried by slick yeast. Pharmaceutical, herbal spices become even more present towards the end, revealing a gentle bitterness, which is staying on the palate, when the spices have already left. Evokes a feeling in me, that this is probably better fitting for Autumn, as it carries a gentle warmth, with medium-bodied, earthy spices. Has an enjoyable balance, spices harmonise very well with the soft yeast, leading to an unusual taste.

Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Hazy orange of color with a white head. An aroma of yeast, spice, dry, fruity and funky. A flavor of yeast, smoke, papaya, fruity, dry, spice and weak banana.

haukur (1285) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 27, 2014
Nice orange color with a firm head. There appears to be slight skunk in the aroma, DAMN IT! Otherwise below that, watermelons, apples, farmhouse and loads of funk. Nice acidity, like the bark of an green apple. Very subtle spices. Very complex yeast notes, slightly earthly but very fresh. Another winner from Fantome for me!

BeerBaboon (1554) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Pours dark amber with white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity and earthy. Flavour is spicy, somewhat hoppy and plenty of lemon.

Bottle at Brewdog Birmingham; hazy light orange pour with a soapy beige head, fruity aroma of tangerine and citrus, taste is also fruity with grapefruit, lemon and tangerine a little bit of funkiness.
