Bottle, 03/18/2012. Hazy burnt orange pour, thin head, splotchy surface residue left over. Moderately sweet and fruity aroma, orange and caramel, clean pale malts underneath, grassy hops, and farmhouse yeast. Taste is bright orange citrus with a minty bite, touch of tartness, subtle maltiness, herbal hops add slight bitterness, and dry, peppery finish. Drinks easy with smooth, well-rounded palate, nice carbonation. Very enjoyable, the orange peel really shines, everything else providing backup.

750ml bottle. The pour yields a beautiful, glowing, medium golden-amber body that is laced with effervescing streams of super-fine bubbles. Initially tall and puffy, a snow-white head recedes to a short but steadfast layer of foam, giving a solid wash but no lacing to the glass. Immediately, the mandarin orange peel makes itself known and distinguishes itself from others within the Fantôme Santé series, which has admittedly had a tendency to be somewhat similar in profile. Juicy, oily orange rind lends a citrusy freshness to the underlying clean pilsner malt. Hops are fresh and grassy, very green, yet with a pithy citrus bite. Candy sugar is distinguishable, but better attenuated than a lot of other Fantômes tend to be. Rounding out the nose is a soft, dry, white pepper spiciness. The flavor is a bit sweeter, showing more of the white candy, along with sugar glazed orange rind and doughy pils malt. There’s a touch of citrusy acidity, along with the drying yeast and spicy white pepper. Hops are very green. The palate is substantive, et sufficiently dried and quaffable (for a 7%’er). Carbonation is active, yet fine and soft, cleaning the tongue off quickly. I have yet to try Hill Farmstead’s Mimosa, but I’ll be hard-pressed to believe that a beer could resemble the champagne cocktail more than this one does. Damn fine brew. Much better than the citrus overload of La Gillmoir.

j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle at a small tasting with Max, Paul, and Andy. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Super lemony on the nose, orange zest. Medium bodied, cool and smooth, citrus and zest, orange and lemon. Lovely musk. Zesty, yuzu, faint musk. Balanced and very interesting. Refreshing and easy drinking.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle, August 2008. Floral, tobacco aroma, fairly typical Fantome style stuff, funky and wet, a touch of chili pepper and perhaps dandelion. Full flavor, somewhat fruity and sweet—atypical for the brewery—was a touch of lactic sourness. Rose petal and sage is noted. Good stuff, even at 4 years.

2/24/12. 750mL bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head. Funky, yeasty aroma with slight pale malt aspects and a touch of mint. Similar flavor but with a big tart aspect as well. Not too shabby!

thirdeye11 (5734) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy medium yellow with hints of orange, little to no head. Nose of orange pulp, light funk, coriander, and candi sugar. Taste of mild tartness, chewable vitamins, light earth, really funky! Well carbonated and pretty dry, a bit of seltzer in the finish.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - FEB 9, 2012
750 ml bottle. A firstly hazy, then muddy dark blonde beer, with a large, frothy, half diminishing white head. The aroma is lightly malty (bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), moderately yeasty (barnyard, earth), with a rather strong note of mint, other notes of lemon/lime zest, grapefruit, pepper, perhaps a touch of ginger. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, very long finish with medium bitterness. The exotic frutiness reminds me a little bit of the fantastic Sante 14, although it’s not at that level of pureness and intenesity, it’s actually a little soapy/perfumey. That doesn’t affect the beer’s quality. Complex and drinkable. Rather acidic and funky.

Huge thanks to drabmuh for sharing this bottle. Served in a Fantome tulip. Pours a somewhat-hazy golden-peach color with a good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward a bit of funk and earth, as well as some tropical fruits. A bit of pineapple and very light acidity. The flavor is equally complex, reminding me a bit of a slightly more-funky version of Fantome Saison. Light body with good carbonation and the slightest bit of extra body. A bit of acidity and dryness to the finish. Really tasty.

Enjoyit (3571) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2012
Unclear orange of color with a small white head. An aroma of mint, weak sour, citrus and lemon. A flavor of citrus, lemon, mint and hops with a weak note of sour in the finish.
