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 (3541) - 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.

beerplace (2146) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
A pour from the bottle (thx, L-P B.!) on Black Christmas V. Pours a bit hazy golden with a white head. Looks like very carbonated. Aroma and taste are very flowery and fruity. Noticable bitterness and body. Good one.

Ferris (16719) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle - Souted and funky notes with some grass. Clearish gold with a small white head. Effervescent and some petroleum funk. Pepper and grass.

Bouteille. Robe dorée à teintes orangées, légèrement trouble et surmontée d'un col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes de levures belges, quelques petites épices sucrées, pain au citron, traces de sirop de poire et miel, herbes fraîches. En bouche, malt à la fois citronné et sucré, fruits du verger, levures soyeuses rappellant une préparation à pain épicé, petit côté pulpe d'orange qui nous amène vers une finale plus épicée et mielleuse où l'aspect saisonnier ressort plus. Texture douce et corps moyen. Très bien. J'adore l'équilibre plus que réussie entre les saveurs citronnées et sucrées.

90 (883) - BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2017
Bought @ Bierhalle Deconcinck Vichte.
Very fruity palate. The appearance is a firm whiter than white head. The aroma is fruity and herbal. A tad citric with spicy side. The taste is so rich and light at the same time. The palate is smooth and juicy.

FinnIckler (918) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle at Moritz's. Nose is orange, citrus, honey, apricot. Palate is very juicy orange juice, citrus. Sweet finish. A bit of a juicy mess. But it is still tasty and refreshing

MetalNHopHead (2223) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 28, 2017
Fantome has the recognizable golden, heady beauty and technical grace of other Farmhouse in its homeland, yet this Saison distinguishes itself with its crisp and brightly acidic fruit character. On the nose there's champagne-like esters with floral and earthy character. Cohesive yet complex flavor profile. Lemon, grassy grains, white pepper, clove, and very subtle tangy orange. The textures are just as lively as the appearance, and you can't call it delicate, but this brew feels soft on the palate. Superb all around.

HuskerTan (2403) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Bottle.

A- Citrus, spices, wheat,

A- Golden orange color, hazy liquid, white head.

T- Citrus, lemon, black pepper, spices, wheat, mild sourness.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish.

O- Great stuff. One of my favorite saisons to date. Very drinkable and refreshing. Lots of lemon and black pepper spices. Fairly complex and hard to distinguish any individual flavors. Good stuff.

josanguapo (1973) - SPAIN - OCT 21, 2017
From Cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Ablepsia, then Space Pilgrim Episode 4. Very smooth feel. Really balanced, with light funk notes and plenty of pear and white grapes. Even champagne-like

3.9
rodbod (455) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Catch up notes from a Rainbow Project tasting 2017-09-29. We added this one to the line up so we had an established classic beer to compare the contenders with.

nose: loads of spice – classic Belgian yeast notes
palate: rich, concentrated, spicy, yeasty, sweet candy malt.
conclusion: far too drinkable
