Phenomenal beer that doesn’t get enough love. The fruit component and the heavy sourness are perfect.

Bottle … Fantômepalooza 2011… Pours cloudy and light brown with no head. The fruity aroma furnishes raw white oak, bourbon, caramel and yes, cherries.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2011 Bottle @ home. First time around I was moderately impressed, though not overwhelmed and was tasted soon after the release in February. Here’s my updated rating. Reddish purple appearance with an off-white head that doesn’t last. Funky, oaky, dark cherry, interesting tart sour nose. Initially an oaky, tart red fruit flavor followed by a more pronounced tart raspberry, cherry, moderately tart, funky, light barnyard flavor. Tart cherry, berry aftertaste. Awesome brew that matured nicely in the last six months.

Bottle thanks to Scott! Pours a hazy deep ruby red with a gray head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of sweet cherries with a bit of acidity backing and a bit of funk as well as a bit of oak. Flavor has a good amount of cherries that are mainly sweet with a bit of tartness and backed by oak and a hint of funk.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL at RBSG 2011 in Philly. Poured a cloudy pink with not too much head. Nose is cherry pie with phenols/plastic and a decent dose of band-aid and cherry cough drops. Taste felt pretty watery devolving into cardboard. Papery palate. Goes a little cranberry tannic but not a lot of acidity or funk. Feels pretty weak. Not digging this one.
