Santé 1-19 vertical. Thanks Brad. Sunshine yellow body, slightly hazy, small white head. Aromas of pear, melon, funk, citrus, grass, earth. Tart and fruity. Quite tasty!

teorn88 (6196) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Backlog rating. 75cl bottle from Etre. It pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. Aroma is tangy and fruity with notes of citrus peel, lime leaves, barnyard and funk. Also notes of wood, wet soil and green apples. Taste is acidic and complex, funky like a lambic, with notes of green apples, dank, barnyard, lemon and lime, wet soil, wood, dust and white grapes. Light peppery yeasts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, standout saison, miles away from anything produced globally today, including Fantome alas.

VsXsV (3906) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle. Super hazy grayish amberish liquid with fast dissipating medium egg white head. Aroma of citrus peel, grain, yuzu, white pepper, spices and light pineapple. Taste is dry and light sour with notes of lemon, pineapple juice, light grain and light white pepper. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Maybe a bit too old as it’s not very bright anymore. Nice still.

Damico (3140) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours mostly unclear golden with light sediment and good carbonation as have all the Santes we had tonight. The aroma brings a light sweet and herbal note, maybe marjoram and some weed. The flavor is delicious as well, bringing light tropical fruits and a smooth sweet yeast.

ClubGonzo (5406) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle from trade with 77ships. Pours a light pale clear golden body with a medium, short-lasting foamy white head. Nose is strange and seems brett-infected; sweet malts and weird sour tones, burnt plastic and band-aid all over the place. Taste is also peculiar, with sweet malts and some strange burn-plastic like tones present, though not as imposing as in the aroma. Hints of band-aids and grains. Medium body, soft to near-flat carbonation. Not good, all in all. I suspect this is one of the bottles which supposedly show up on a regular basis and has earned Dany his reputation as a "hit-n-miss" brewer. Oh well, I guess you have to have one of these to claim having had a complete "Fantome Experience". :-P

jackl (7016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s. Devious delayed gusher. The pour’s hazy amber with a small head. The nose is peach, some fart, farmhouse yeasty earthiness. The taste is fanta, moldy peach, some marmalade. A bit of earth, dirt. Medium body, active carbonation. All over the place, but not without its charms. OK.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle, shared at Bruce’s. Odd slow gusher with red streaks spewing out of it initially! In the glass it pours cloudy pale gold with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is earthy, light sulphur, mouldy wood, faint smoke and armpit. The taste is earth, mouldy, damp wood, tart fruit, pithy lemon, light soap, spice, nectarine, apricot and light alcohol with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Thankfully the taste makes up (a bit) for the dodgy aroma. Pretty fantome all-round. I.e. unusual/weird.

’Paul takes a brown shower’ tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks Paul. Weird looking beer - a moderate gusher, it foamed pale cream with scarlet streaks like it was bleeding. Very odd. When eventually in the glass it is cloudy gold. Palate is light and chalky dry. Light geueze sourness with an off soapy streak. Semi dry finish. Pretty grim.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a tulip. A bit of light foaming up from the bottle. 3.5 A: Murky dark yellow color. One and a half fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a bit below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: This smells a little bit like Sante 12 in that it has a lime fruitiness apparent. It isn’t as strong in this year’s version though. Lemon is right up there with the lime and apple is underneath. Hay, yeast, rotting wood, forest after a rain, and a bit of wildflower. Mild, well received bready sweetness. Very pleasant with a good mix of fruitiness and funk. 4.5 T: This tastes great! Super complex with well integrated flavors. Lemon, lime, apple fruits again. Wildflowers are much more prominent in the taste. Quite floral actually, much more than the nose suggests. Hay, rotting wood funk, wet outdoors, a bit of basement, and earthy dirtiness. Really well balanced overall with just enough sweetness to complement the floral and herbal notes. 4.0 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. The only thing I’d like would be some spritziness in the carboantion. Nice creaminess though. 4.0 D: Very tasty brew. Fantome is the king of saisons. Even HF can’t compete.
