COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not just your senses beguiling you. When the Phantasmic appears, prepare yourself for an ethereal blend of notable hints of fruit and pine, reaching out to you from beyond the shadows of rich yeast and hops. Conjure the spirits of barley, wheat and rye malts and strike a balance between this world with theirs. Commence in the séance of flavor and unlock the secrets of the other side.

Keg @ Strangeways. The pour’s deep gold with a small head. The nose is honey, pear, lemon. The taste is canned peach, more pear. Some citrus fruits. Clean biscuit. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, well executed.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin frothy off-white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of resin, citrus, leafy hops and pale malts. The taste is citrus, mild resin hops, candied citrus, pale malts. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness.

TheBeerGod (5174) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Draft at Strangeways. Amber bodied. Aroma is slightly fruity and Belgian to me. Can’t quite pick the hops out. Taste is fruity and yeasty with Belgian notes, soft hops, sweet malt and faint citrus. Body is medium with a soft carbonation. Ends with a fruity and slightly hoppy, and sort of Belgian - like.

3.8
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Had tried this before, but only a version with a bunch of random stuff thrown into it - tasty, but not the normal thing. Finally had the straight up version, and liked it! Medium orange,light haze, nice head. Aroma is pine, earth, hint of caramel malt. Flavor is slightly peppery, caramel malts, and then a pine and earth hop finish. At the end, a faintly medicinal herbal hop note comes up to the front. Some vague fruitiness as well. Nicely complex, and good balance of hops and malt make it clearly East Coast. Good stuff, glad it is around.

HopTsing (410) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
From the tap came a cloudy, pale amberish brew with a thin white head. Medium bodied with fruity/ malty flavors and aroma and all the hops you expect in a ipa.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
tia (858) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Taster @ beer shared with HopTsing. Orangey with creamy head and light lacing. Smells a little like lipstick and orange honey cake. Bitter and fruity. Nice bitter finish.
