COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer entry represents the old label versions (no longer in production) of the four seasonal Fantôme beers (Printemps, Été, Automne, and Hiver), which used to all be packaged with a "Saison d'Erezée" label (with the specific season in smaller letters). The label shown to the left is the Hiver version of Erezée.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 1996 "Automne". - red label. Dark amber with a fluffy yet collapsing head. Extreme, lumpy yeast sediment. Very fresh, slightly sourish with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Some indefinable herbal spicyness. Rather solid yet unrefined beer. 190698

(Bottle 75 cl) Vintage 1999 "Hiver". Hazy light brown, small off-white head. Unpleasant smell of... cow-manure? Very soft and lightly spicy with a slight underlyimg tartness. But a bit old and tired. 6/2/5/2/12=2,7

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2005
1998/99 (hiver) bottle, Izegem, Kroegske, May 2005. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with light notes of peach and cardboard. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. From what I know of this beer/label, it probably shouldn’t have been added to the database, as it was for the seasonal line that Dany eventually just made separate labels for (Printemps, Hiver, etc.). But it’s too late now. I had the 98/99 winter version, label was exactly as shown here. Starting to show its age with some oxidation, but it ultimately was still quite enjoyable and I did indeed drink the whole thing (shared some with Danny of Kroegske).

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
1999 vintage. Reddish brown coloured. Very cloudy. Very complex. Notes of citrus fruits and raisins. Slightly too old for my liking.

(This 1999 vintage is now for sale. It is significantly different from both F. Saison and F.de Printemps)Red-chestnut, slightly hazy; yellowish head. Spicey (nutmeg, coriander, ...) and sweet (honey!) at the same time in the nose. A number of organic acids, playing havoc with dark roaste malts and herb spices. It is not balanced, but interesting things are going on. Quite impressive. Somehow no light texture, but the acidity keeps it light in the apparent density. Aftertaste gives definitely black pepper. Another great try from Dany, and one that has stood the test of time. Some might call this Flemish sour, but no old brown has ever had this Wallon spicey thumbprint.
