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.

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.

jc1762 (180) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2015
Poured into a teku showing a very cloudy and dark honey yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows extremely strong tart aromas of lemon, mango, apricot, and peaches. Aromas are balanced with very noticeably sweet ripe peach notes. The palate is full bodied and aggressively carbonated. The first impression shows a lot of round sweet malts mixed in with a sweet peach or bubble gum forwardness/background (not sweetness) that gives it a fruit profile. A slight refreshing bitterness on the finish that appears akin to a pilsner. As the description suggests, the fruit overlay works very well on the palate with the sweet malts.

Maakun (1463) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle. Massive gusher, hazy orange with very big fluffy white head. Sweet malts, cloves, citrus, banana, peach yoghurt, syrupy and cake. Very sweet with light tart touch and bitter finish. Medium bodied with sticky feel. Too sweet, and the gushing wildness doesn’t help, but nice aroma.

McWorta (936) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 28, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 Bright golden colour with a pillowy medium slow fading white head. With medium viscousity. On the nose aromas of summer flowers, barnyard, hay, citrus peel and biscuit develop. Effervescent with a rather light texture and medium body. A faint sweetness develops earthy notes with a light floral dryness/bitterness. Splendidly balanced with a light dry medium finish.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from MOMH. Entirely opaque bright orange, small white head. Initial aroma of sweet orange gives way to a nasty puff of something phenolic, TCP/bandaid. There’s a bit of soft sweet fruit at the front of the palate but it’s all demolished by a big phenolic character that dominates. Acrid, bitter, gag-inducing.... Not very sour or tart, this doesn’t taste like right - nothing like a taster of this beer that I’ve had before.
