dukeredhair (243) - 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.

75cl bottle. Hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Floral, grassy, fruity and spicy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced with caramel and yeasty notes. Overall, a good beer.

kraddel (6144) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Pours clear blonde, huge white head. Smell is super intense, woody spices. Repellingly intense on the dryness, reminding on lemon-grass, rather than a nice dryness of a sour . Taste is sharp, intense, bitter, spiceBOMB , no sane person can call this even remotely balanced. it’s like eating a spoon of herbs and spices. Thym and rosemary to the max.

ciocanelu (1302) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Hazy golden color with fluffy white head. Aroma has lots of herbs and spices like rosemary and thyme. Taste follows, herbal and sweet, like a sweetened herbal tea. It’s quite rustic and tasty but I would prefer it to be more dry.

koleminer20 (2437) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house on July 04 for the first beer I’ve brewed with him! 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy lemon colored bright yellow with a thick white head that falls slowly, forming a dense cap and a couple legs of lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a ton of lemongrass, but there is a huge floral grassiness to this that is interesting. The spiciness on the back end really is a deterrent for me. The flavor is very similar. Maybe a little more fruitiness to it, but it’s just so damn spicy and grassy. The mouth feel is surprisingly thick and softly carbonated for a saison. There is a light banana that joins the bright lemongrass and floral spice on the back aftertaste. This is interesting, but I’d never had a Fantôme beer before. It wasn’t spoiled, so that’s a good start.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow, smash white head, some lacing. Aroma is peppery, a bit smoky, field grass, whit grape, lemon. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, black pepper with nice fruitiness and a hint of smoke. Soft chsmpagnelike mouthfeel. I quite like this.

TXBadger (2530) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with white head and plenty of floaters sinking to the bottom. Light fruits, white wine notes, chardonnay and pinot grigio on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes much like a white wine, just has that type of a flavor to it.

mkel07 (5145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle from Wine Emporium 030716. All round is is a very good beer packed with flavours from spice to fruit. Looks great in the glass and tastes even greater.

ksiwzos (123) - GREECE - JUN 30, 2016
Pours amber to deep amber, hazy with amazing dense off white head. Aroma is off the charts, complex with cypress tree, lavender notes, beachgrass(!!) notes. Taste is salinity, caramel, amazing and complex, I’m overwhelmed. Can’t judge anymore, I’ll just enjoy :)
