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. 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.

IlGagario (33) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 5, 2016
On tap, al favoloso Goblin pub di Pavullo nel Frignano (MO), Italia. 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.

apickles (377) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Pours golden cloudy with a tiny head. Yeasty and a bit citrus on the nose. A little wheaty to taste, not as hoppy as most saisons. Quite sharp hints of tropical fruits as well as lemon.

Akiro (35) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2016
Degustata in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. Giallo oro, schiuma abbastanza persistente, leggermente torbida. Season equilibrata, nessuna sbavatura. In bocca sapore di lamponi, gusto pepato retrogusto amarognolo e persistente al palato. Beverina nonostante gli 8 gradi. Una season che potrebbe essere il punto di riferimento per valutare le altre.

mariuspoenari (433) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Among the best saisons I have tried. Very light bodied and refreshing, floral hops and a bit of barnyard funkiness in the aroma. The taste is very refreshing, slightly citric and floral hoppy.
