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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

(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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
