COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tremendously delicious, textural, and fizzy county ale, bright gold colour, citric and sour, reminiscent of a good champagne or lambic but in a class all its own.
Fantôme – Golden ale, 8% alc. by volume, with a wonderfully musty and characterful aroma. There are many drinkers out there who believe this is the “Nectar of the Gods.” Certainly no other brewer makes beer like this, in Belgium or anywhere. How many beers of 8% plus offer such fresh fruitiness? A solid Belgian saison beer at its base, with an unusual overlay of fruitiness.

Lilja (3140) - Malmö, - JUL 2, 2012
Bland de bästa jag någonsin smakat. Doft av jordgubbe och smultron, söt och syrlig och med smak av tjära, apelsin, blodapelsin. Välbalanserad och lite rökig ton.

Ktwse (4799) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Pours hazy to murky golden brownish with low white head. Aroma of pepper, coriander, wheat, spices. Taste is mild tart with a light yeasty and sweet finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, Saison yeast, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Opaque golden/amber beer with slight yeast and with a slight off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, fruit and Saison yeast; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. God damn it, another amazing Saison from thos brewery. Lovely refreshing beer with a hint of fruit and some very slight funk at the end. Perfect appearance and a great aroma and palate as well.

dorain (177) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Aus der Flasche (bbe 2016-11) 2017-05 getrunken. Das ist das Erdbeer-Jogurt Bier schlechthin. Ansonsten eine schöne Hefenote mit leichter Hopfennote abgerundet. Lecker! Aus dem Growler aus dem LagerLager/Berlin 2017-03 getrunken. Deutlich anders als die Flaschen-Version und somit gehopfter. Was nicht schlimm war nur hier leider fehlte die feine Erdbeerjogurtnote, die ich bei diesem Bier so mag.

Amazing Saison. Beautiful aroma of citrus and must. Perfect carbonation level and a truly balanced acidity. Overall this is one of best sour beers I’ve tried all year.

geolgau (211) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAY 14, 2017
Fresh, fruity aroma with a rustic tart sourness. A bit of citrus along the way. Taste is light but complex at the same time. Fruits(orange zest), grass, tart. Balanced, highly drinkable saison, which is not as sour as expected. Weird and different, but in a good way.

angel77 (3237) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 24, 2017
Botella 75 cl cortesía Fonso tomada en Belmonte 28..04..2017. Lote N 15 hasta antes finales 2018. (r1187). Color ámbar tostado con espuma blanca. Sabores maltas y cereales con toques ácidos frescos. Cuerpo medio con ligero amargo final suave algo herbáceos y cítricos frescos. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda.

Amazingly delicate and light beer for 8% abv. Super drinkable, rather crisp, refreshing.

mrjez (611) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2017
On tap at CBB. An attractive cloudy honey gold with a great thick foamy head. Very funky nose, barnyard hay, yeast giving fruity esters, juicy pulpy citrus, evokes a classic saison. Plenty of citrus in the flavour, champagne grape, apple juice, apricot, tangy with lingering funky and sour notes. Slightly fizzy start but a full lush feel, a hint of booze noticeable. One of my fave styles done just how I like it.

Jimbo2 (449) - DENMARK - MAR 10, 2017
Beautiful golden colour. Aroma and gum and funky fruits. Slightly tart and intense, fruity bitterness. Funk!
