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.

Have had several of these and always enjoy it. Enjoyed the spicy, fruity aroma with the peach colored pour. The finish is also crisp with more spice tones. Love the labels as well. Thanks Fantome

Tuoksu makea, sitruksinen, kukkainen, pihkaa. Vaahto vaalea, hillitty, katoava, pitsinen. Väri samea, kultainen. Maku makea, voikukkaa, mangoa, kevyt humala. Suutuntuma todella pehmyt, aavistuksen liian hapokas, raikas, paksu. Kokonaisuutena suositeltava olut.

visionthing (3133) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2015
75cl bottle at Crowbar, Oslo. Pours slightly hazy golden with a big, white head. Yeasty and somewhat fruity aroma with wheat, some acidic notes and hints of hops. Sweet, tasty and quite flavourful with a certain acidity. Nice and refreshing saison.

Lore (1308) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 22, 2015
very hazy orange colour, not too much off-white head; perfect aroma of intensive fruitiness (peach), citruses, some earthy notes, barn, and some alcohol; taste of frutiness, some bread, significant hoppy bitterness, citrussy notes and hints of alcohol; good saison

Fashawn (255) - Montesarchio, ITALY - FEB 17, 2015
Un po’ di delusione per una birra beverina e leggera, dal buon bouquet di odori e bella alla vista, ma che non ha quella rusticità che dovrebbe avere una saison. Al.naso è pesca ed un po’ di pera, in bocca è pesca funky, erba tagliata e terra, un po’ di acidità, a tratti molto, e sapore di sughero, quasi fosse un vino bianco scadente a tratti. Magari è una bottiglia sfortunata ma a me non è piaciuta molto. Stuck in the middle.

BlizzardOz (14) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
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.

Gyllen. Lett fenolsk preg med noe fjøs. God fylde. Lettdrikkelig og frisk tross alkoholinnhold of fylde. Meget god.

jc1762 (125) - 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 (967) - 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.
