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.

Smakprov örebro ölmässa. Grumlig grågul kulör. Parfymig och tvålig doft med kryddor och citron. Lömsk och gräddig. Inte speciellt smakrik. Tjock munkänsla med diskret smak av frukt och säd.

Bottle in Brewdog Newcastle shared with Pix. Hazy blond with a thin layer of off white froth. Rustic aroma with farmyard, lemon citrus and bread. The taste is similar - bread, lemon, yeast. Very light and refreshing. A fantastic saison.

brianza_ale (205) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2015
75cl bottle. Pours an average white and frothy head; nice orange to golden juicy color with a smooth cloudiness. Smells very unique and refined: very fruity and bretty, yeasty, funky, fresh spiced, lemony, and very perfumed, wow. Tastes apple juicy, nice full yeasts, fresh herbs like mint, sweet lemon, almost remembers me a high quality lemon ice tea; the most awesome and balanced tartness which has a great fruity and sweet character, average to medium and nicely dosed sweetness, subtle and balancing average bitterness. Medium carbonated and bodied, juicy. The balance in this one it’s on the highest level, very refreshing, almost makes a style on its own. Really awesome and original stuff, if I see a bottle on the shelf becomes quite difficult not to grab it

Fra flaske på Haand Ølfestival 29 Mai 15. Delt med Rune. Aprikosfarget. Veldig uklar. Lavt skum. Tett lacing. God krydderaroma. Smaken er appelsin & søtt krydder. Behagelig øl.

Sharp aromas of cow manure. Very complex flavor. Nice cidery acidity, a floral bitterness, tons of yeast fruitiness. This is not in balance, but it is a assault on the palate...in that good way. Like Stanley Kubrick or Dostoevsky.

Rich, very yeasty, lots of funk, bread, herbs, earthy, barnyard, floral, citrus, golden colour, white head. Tart,,lots of yeastiness, medium bite, ABV well integrated. The liquid is almost like syrup in texture. What a treat.

Pours a deep and hazy golden body with a very thin head and almost no carboration. Nice funky aroma. Very nice and well balanced taste with all sort of summer tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
