4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light funky ester, semi-sweet rustic malt notes with light refreshing zesty hops notes. Taste is quite refreshing with zesty notes and light funky ester with a semi-sweet rustic Belgian malt backbone. Body is quite full with great bottle conditioning and great carbonation with no apparent carbonation. This has to be considered as a hit for the brewery which is not known for consistency.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating 3000. As long as it doesn’t get stirred up, it’s a clean glowing golden body with a frothy white head. I based my rating on the clear pour that I had. Once mixed up, however, it’s murky like lemonade and iced team mixed. The aroma is very floral. Like actual flower petals. Some lemon zest. Perhaps hyacinth or paper white narcissus and a dash of kaffir lime leaves. A dash of honey suckle. The flavor is very floral with lemon zest, some light lime leaf, definite edible flowers, and light malt. This is a really strange beer that I am glad to have rated. Very clean palate. Medium-light bodied.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of drabmuh. Served in a fancy glass.
Pours a somewhat-hazy light peach color with a good, rocky white head and a nice amount of lacing. The nose carries some really nice stone fruits along with lemon and a bit of apple/pear. Slight sourness. The flavor really brings everything together with great wheat and a light sourness. Fruit rounds everything out. Beautiful body with a dry finish. Excellent brew.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml bottle. A cloudy medium blonde/orange beer, with a large, frothy/fizzy, lightly lacing, almost fully lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (bread, hay), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon, flowers, apricot), lightly to moderately yeasty (barnyard), with strong notes of tangerines, oranges and peaches, other notes of pepper and some kind of herbs like basil, mint, etc. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, dry and very long finish with moderate bitterness. Fabulous. The most pure delightful and fruity aroma since I don’t remeber when. Some odd spices/herbs as usual for Fantome, but this beer is mainly about intensity of aromas and tastes. One of the best from Dany, ever...
