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.

Color cobrizo tupido con espuma blanca y densa con una excelente formación. aromas dulces afrutados de manzana y uva con toques de acidez. En boca es ligera y encontramos esas mismas sensaciones. Muy rica.

danielyabu (1132) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - FEB 2, 2014
huge creamy white head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick dark yellow. aroma: moderate hoppy, herbs, banana, apple, white wine, wood, clove, alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: light sweet moderate bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, dry/watery texture, ilvely carbonation, metallic moderate alcoholic finish. O maravilhoso aroma remete ao campo, cheio de ervas e frutas. O sabor lembra bastante maçã, também bem campestre. O retrogosto é bastante semelhante ao que fica na boca após saborear uma maçã. Bem carbonatada, quase vazou ao tirar a rolha da garrafa. A textura lembra bastante a de um vinho branco, bem como seu amargor final, que eh bem mais alcoólico do que o esperado. Saison maravilhosa, complexa, completa. A melhor que já degustei. 260 s

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Uma cerveja com muito sabor e aroma. Um retrogosto de casca de laranja que deixa um certo amargor na boca. Muito boa!

750ml bottle. 2000 Vintage. BBT3 tasting. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized head. This one aged rather nicely. Fruity, some funkiness, and some spices.

jamestulloch (1223) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky pale golden body with a huge white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of boozy cider, grass and lemons. Flavour is sharp and fruity, with a lovely yeast and faint spice. Hides the alcohol really well. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. One of the best Saisons out there.

Cork popped and started gushing- had to quickly pour into two glasses to save it. Otherwise, it’s a light, very cloudy orange color with huge white fluffy head. Great retention, which leaves a nice thick lacing on the glass. Aroma has nice yeasty, grassy hay notes with light citrus. Flavor has strong citrus up front with a grassy bitterness, spicy yeast, with a dry sweet finish. Pretty good overall- very different from other saisons I’ve had.

scarletfire65 (904) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Highly active carbonation....gushed over upon uncorking. The huge, billowy head actually receded quite quickly. Intense aroma of brett, leather, rubber, berries, cream, stonefruits, and a bit of skunky funky horseblanket. Bright orange, cloudy, and full of yeast chunks. Super creamy mouthfeel. Loaded with fruity flavors - green apple, berries, apricot. Amazing finish that features brett, sour raspberries, Belgian yeast, ripe peaches, funk. World class!!!!

I know everytime you get Fantome its a roll of the dice, however this time i rolled a 6, this was a stunning saison, full of citrus, peach, strawberry and other sweeter fruits, head retention was very good, medium carbonation, went down very well and far too quick! very lucky this time perhaps!
