3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) very light clear yellow, ring of bubbles. Nose is very funky, char wood, moss and dusty books, like a musty basement. Taste of light tart currant, wet cellar, mossy, light paper, reminds me of a wet forest floor. A little metallic, well carbonated. Odd.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Beerlando for sharing this at Fantômepalooza 2011! Dark gold with a frothy white head. Funky horse blanket, herbal spices and fairly tart aroma. Taste has some bitterness, light malt with some oregano and coriander dominating the rest of the taste. Finishes with funk and spices.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. The body is a clear dark golden color. Streams of effervescing pinpoint bubbles feed a thin but lasting off-white blanket. Splotchy flares of lacing mark the glass. The nose is very herbal, showing notes of old, dried oregano that has lost some of its potency, along with peppery wildflowers and wet, musty wood. The signature minty Fantôme yeast tartness is mild, but present nonetheless. Flavors mirror the nose, clearly displaying the peppery coriander and aged, faded oregano. Blonde candy sugar comprises the malt base, but it is fairly neutral and not overly sweet, undoubtedly dried out by the minty, wild yeast. The palate sports a moderate body with slight carbonation and a tart, drying, yeasty finish. This one was a big hit with the group, and while it was not my favorite, it was solid nonetheless. Good brew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Fantômepalooza 2011… Pours clear and golden with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is dusty, musty and very spicy – coriander and oregano (shades of New York pizza). Medium-bodied with nearly expired carbonation. The flavor is tangy, bready and mildly bitter, but also a bit thin and bland. Tangy finish with lingering, light, yeasty bitterness. Bottle courtesy of Beerlando!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottlle bought at 19de Heikantse Bierfeesten. Hazy orangey golden with a medium white head. Spicy "spaghetti" aroma with a hint of oregano tomato sauce. Spaghetti flavours ending dry and very spiced. Good carbonation, dry mouthfeel. A bit on the weird and spicy side, but definitely original.
