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.

Luumu (17) - , FINLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Tuoksu makea, sitruksinen, kukkainen, pihkaa. Vaahto vaalea, hillitty, katoava, pitsinen. Väri samea, kultainen. Maku makea, voikukkaa, mangoa, kevyt humala. Suutuntuma todella pehmyt, aavistuksen liian hapokas, raikas, paksu. Kokonaisuutena suositeltava olut.

Fashawn (373) - Montesarchio, ITALY - FEB 17, 2015
Un po’ di delusione per una birra beverina e leggera, dal buon bouquet di odori e bella alla vista, ma che non ha quella rusticità che dovrebbe avere una saison. Al.naso è pesca ed un po’ di pera, in bocca è pesca funky, erba tagliata e terra, un po’ di acidità, a tratti molto, e sapore di sughero, quasi fosse un vino bianco scadente a tratti. Magari è una bottiglia sfortunata ma a me non è piaciuta molto. Stuck in the middle.

BlizzardOz (14) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle bought at Bottledog Kings X. Lovely hazy gold colour with an off-white head. Lovely citrus-peach aroma. Strong notes of Belgian yeast. Lovely balance between sour and sweet. Lovely crisp fresh finish. Hides its 8% very well.
