COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tremendously delicious, textural, and fizzy county ale, bright gold colour, citric and sour, reminiscent of a good champagne or lambic but in a class all its own.
Fantôme – Golden ale, 8% alc. by volume, with a wonderfully musty and characterful aroma. There are many drinkers out there who believe this is the “Nectar of the Gods.” Certainly no other brewer makes beer like this, in Belgium or anywhere. How many beers of 8% plus offer such fresh fruitiness? A solid Belgian saison beer at its base, with an unusual overlay of fruitiness.

Achel (306) - Ioannina, GREECE - DEC 19, 2015
Unclear yellow beer with particles of yeast floating around and with a huge white head with small spot of spices. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices especially cinnamon, but also with fruity notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with a slight acidic lemony background and notes of spices, citrus, and hops giving it a slightly bitter end, where the alcohol also makes its presence known by leaving You with a warmth in the mouth, but the alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

jackafholmes (882) - - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle from brewdog bar, Sheffield. Cloudy golden small white head. Aroma is lemony and tart on the nose, a lot less sour than the smell suggests, fruity and subtle. Taste is very well balanced, a touch sour, a little sweet and a bit bitter. Lovely mouthfeel, silky and oily, but tingly and refreshing too. Very very nice.
