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.

Lotto ab N 14, BBE 2018, aperta il 27/03/2016. Dorata tendente al pesca, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca di perlage fine è di media persistenza. Aroma di lievito belga, zucchero, fieno, erbaceo fresco, aneto e anice, lievemente citrica, note balsamiche, leggero pepe. Al palato prevalgono il lievito belga, l’erbaceo, il fieno, l’aneto e le note balsamiche, finale amaro erbaceo e lievemente acidulo. Retrolfatto di lievito belga arricchito da note citriche. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Samuel214 (446) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Provning med ölsällskapet. Rejält disig orange vätska - ser ut som nyponsoppa - utan skum. Maltig doft jämte de typiska saisontonerna; kola, knäck, syltade bär, apelsinmarmelad. Här anas också en aning bourbon och vanilj, överraskande nog. Väldigt tunn inledningen som snabbt övergår i en ganska malttung och humlestickande fas för att sedan avslutas i syrlig ton. Komplex öl med mycket av varje, men blir inte för spretig eller ogreppbar.

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 5, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 On tap. Colore giallo oro limpido. Schiuma abbondante, fitta, a shampoo. Naso di fieno, balsamico e vinoso, lontanamente acetico. Carbonazione soffice. In bocca acidità citrica, dolce e azzimata, lunga e balsamica, uva, nota acetica, melissa e rosa. Astringenze delicate, gradevoli. Corpo da sottile a medio. Struttura watery con picchi balsamici all’aroma di bocca. In bilico tra una saison e una geuze, è una birra complessa, generosa e aromatica, con carattere di rarefazione ma anche di sapidità, ad alta scorrevolezza di beva. Una concreta delizia da casa Fantome.
