Huhzubendah (3493) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Santé 1-19 vertical. Thanks Brad! The beer is light golden and clear (later pours are murky). Rain, basement, funk, mineral. Light bodied, slight oxidation. Fun but unremarkable.

Bottle at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin white head. Old cardboard and paper filled caramel. Certainly old, medium bodied, loaded with sweet caramel ,a bit of old malt vinegar. Old and tangy, paper and sweet fruit leather. Tangy, interesting.

One of a whole series of one-offs by Fantôme, this one, I believe, from 2002; all of them have been brewed for the Heikantse Bierliefhebbers but profits go to charity. Vintage tasted in 2009. Off-white, quickly opening head (typical for an old beer), warm amber colour. Oxidized aroma with clear cardboard apart from notes of lemon juice, caramel, hay, rhubarb, overripe peach, walnuts. Pretty sharp lemony acidid onset, nutty malts, hints of sherry, gooseberry, sour cream, jute, soft floral hop bitter finish, slick mouthfeel, retronasal tartness and oxidation. Didn’t stand the test of time too well but still feisty like all other Fantôme brews - and being an amateur of this brewery’s products, I willingly ignore the oxidized flavours.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet caramel malts, leather, some fruity notes, odd yeasty notes, and evident oxidation. Honestly, the oxidation really doesn’t kill this at all. Still pretty good.

gunnfryd (14131) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Pale amber colour with no head. Aroma and flavour is sourness, oxidation, sugar, malt, caramel, citrus. OK beer.

75 cl bottle purchased from Etre. Shared at Fantomefest. Bottle pours a murky burnt orange color with minimal head. Nose is malty with a little funk and oxidation. Flavor is some oxidation again, but in addition, also some pleasant lactic acidity. Mouthfeel is moderate and dull, almost flat. Maybe it was because of Sante 4 was bad before this, but I happened to like Sante 5 a decent amount more than the rest of the group. Definitely on the back end of it’s drinking years, but still quite drinkable.

jredmond (7460) - New York, New York, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Clocks. Pours a deep amber with white lacing. Aroma is soft and muted overall - probably a bit oxidized. Mouthfeel is thin with light sour tart flavor. Obviously past its prime, but probably killer at its peak.
