750mL. Pours a full haze glowing dark peach. Huge foam. Not a gusher. Tepid pour still generates a massive off white foam. Huge retention. Nose at first is quite skunky thanks to the green bottle. Reminds me of Saison Dupont. Green apple is in there. At first I got fresh tangerine but it is long gone. Now it’s mostly apple, celery, dusty, perhaps oxidized, Saison Dupont skunk and esters. Taste is just harsher- papery, bland, celery. Mouthfeel is dry, super aerated, but also drained completely. Biting, sharp. Carbonation is excessive, explosive nucleation. Fantome is always hit or miss. This one is a miss.

As it warms, the palate is harsher, sharper, more paper. Couldn’t finish it.

Bottle, bought @ Etre Gourmet, Belgium. Pours light hazy golden with a large, frothy, white head. Good duration. Aroma has lovely peach, crisp malts, funk, apple zest. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good fresh orange zest, crisp malts, soft funkiness, lovely elegant fruity. Peach, oranges, grapefruit. Lovely.

Gedronken @ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting, oranje kleur en niet helder, witte schuimkraag, ruikt naar pils, teveel koolzuur, bitter en een beetje fruitig van smaak

DutchDrebus (3863) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Sampled @ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting. Hazy yellow to orange colour with a medium sized white head. Smells malts, fresh, some herbs and spices. Tastes malty, sweet, herbs, spices and sweet. Too much carbo, medium body.

Countbeer (4311) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle @ RBESG’13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing rlgk/Aniela: Snaller sized white foamy head changes quick into a lacing on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of citrus, wheat, yeast, cleaner, hay and grains. Flavours of hops, citrus, grapefruit, creamy, soap, bitter, yeast, floral. Aftertaste is yeast, bitter, floral, herbs and light spicy. Low carbo, soft smooth creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a full creamy texture. Bit out of tune and oh so typical Belgian...

75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. Thx! to rlgk & Aniela. Didn’t take a lot of notes because I assumed that I had, had this one before but i wasn’t entirely certain. Still took some. Hazy golden with a white head. Slightly bitter with a touch of plastic, bitter with quite a bit of spices, grass, spicy yeast, touch fruity sweetness, hay, barn is restrained. Touch higher carb. No seeming off-flavours & no clear infections like smoke notes etc. Still one of the more middling & less exiting Fantomes I have had. Solid but not particularly exiting.
