2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This is a very strange beer, that I don´t really know what to think of. Orange with offwhite head, quite a lot of yeast in the bottle. Aroma horseblanket, sour notes, some flowers as well. Taste goes in many directions, wittbier, sour notes, very dry and the finish gets dominated by grapefruits after a while. One of the most special beer I´ve ever tasted, give it a try.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours out golden bordering on amber with big chunks of white head. Hazy from the first pour to the last so clearly plenty of yeasty things going on. Musty, wild, classic farmhouse aroma. Taste is yeasty complexity and orchard fruitiness. Gives you plenty to ponder but never reveals all the answers, marrying that complexity with a straight up drinkability that is very refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours straw gold with fluffy white head that falls with nice lacing. Light barnyard hay aroma with wet grass and lemon leaf. Citrus leaf green grass but not bitter. Notes of vanilla and wood. Good carbonation and mouth feel. The beer leaves a soft and enjoyable finish.

Shared a 75cl with two friends. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Smells of fresh grass, acid and kind of wine yeast. Taste is really refreshing. Low bitterness, medium carbonation, pretty dry. Tastes of apricots, citrus and peaches. Really good saison!!

750 ml bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a musty funk, grass, light tart fruit, herbal character with some spices and a strange sweetness. As I look back on these notes I realized that I didn’t have enough experience to properly describe this beer at the time. Fantome beers are usually more difficult since it seems they just grab whatever twigs, grass, flowers, dirt they have close and brew a beer from it. Always interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a hazy, orange yellow color, with a huge, fast disappearing head.
Smells of lemon peel, mixed with soft Belgian yeast and joung carrots, overall pointing into herbal ,slightly spiced direction. Also contains hints of fermented sourness.
Begins with soft yeast, which feels incredibly smooth on the palate, then spicy, syrupy sweetness with hints of overripe sourness turn visible. Slick sourness remains in the throat and on the palate, while hot spices add a decent complexity. Medium bodied, begins with a very smooth impression, then turns hotter with stinging spices and overripe sourness. Driven by lively carbonation, finishing slightly bitter, with peppery spices still being detectable.

Light funky and medium spicy taste, fruity, good yeast character. Pleasant refreshing bitterness and a dry finish. A very well crafted saison.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från Belgoklubben. Halmgul och kraftigt grumlig vätska. Viskositeten är nästan trögflytande. Ananasdoft och peppar. Smaken alldeles för tunb. Torr munkänsla med pepprigt avslut.

1.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ home 20140619. Pours slimy, cloudy and golden. So ropy and slimy the CO2 barely reaches the surface. Aroma is delicious with dough, citrus, banana, spices and pepper, a little barnyard. Just awesome aroma. Taste is of course a great disappointment, you get a hint of the delicious components from the aroma but they barely get through the nasty slime. Poured it down the drain unfortunately. Have another bottle, will save it for a year or two and see if it goes away.
