1 pint 9 4 oz bottle. Cloudy red brown, explosive head that shot the cork across the bar. Light tan head. Aroma of pumpernickel bread and yeast. Taste of German black bread with sour finish. Incredible, radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2008
Deep copper-amber in colour with a lingering off-white coloured head, good lacing. The aroma is sweet, floral, lots of citrus with a light sweetness and some yeast. The flavour is dry, apples, sweet, a fruit salad sort of mix, citrus, lightly tart. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes very dry, tart with lots of apples.Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2008
This is excellent, not overly tart but rather smooth. A different kind of saison, even coming from Fantôme.
750ml bottle obtained in a trade with TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan.

Deep dark red-brown. Never loses its head as it sits. Blueberry pie. Flowers. Fruity crazy unique yeast. Like a breeze blowing through a field of orchid and hibiscus. Distinctive. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 10, 2008
750 I feel honred to have had this a bottle from Chris of Ebenezer’s Personal Cellar. Pours dark amber red with a 2 finger tan head. Nose is sweet, really awesome. Taste is sweet and tart and nice, this was great. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Reddish-brown colour. Cloudy. Liquoricey with crazy spice nose. Light pear notes, again very assertive liquorice/anise, nutmeg and spice. Probably a little too much, even for Fantome.

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. The hazy, murky, dark auburn body is crowned by a foamy, cream colored head. Sudsy, spotty lacing marks the glass in typical Fantôme fashion. The aroma displays a lightly caramelized, slightly grainy malt base, with the signature minty yeast funk and notes of wildflowers. Flavors continue the theme, with a musty, spicy, minty yeast permeating the grainy background, with wild herbs and spices lending further complexity. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated, it finishes dry and lightly tart. Very good overall, but not the best effort from this great brewery. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Bottle @ ORL throwdown. Dark hazy amber with a smallish cream head.The Fantome mint hit comes strong with this on the nose, funky brett, some hay, tart, a little spiciness. Tart and sour in the mouth, some maltiness, and grassy hay hints. Dry and tart finish. Quite nice! CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a very murky brown. Aroma is fruity and spicy, some malty sweetness underneath. Flavor is noticeably sour and slightly astringent. dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2008
OTown Throwdown. Dark caramel pour with virtually no head. Sour candi apple aroma, with belgian funk. Taste is sweet candi apple, sour dry and yeasty. Strange but fun saison. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
