750 ml. into footed glass. Kind of underwhelming. Nothing about this beer stood out to me. After reading the description, I now know that the occassional spiciness underneath the dark, non-sweet chocolate malt is black pepper, but that flavor never came to mind while drinking. Smooth and quaffable, surely, but without any of the stand-out uniqueness I’ve come to expect from Fantome.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Pours cloudy amber with a big head. Aroma is pig stables, yeast, pepper, saison, cork. Body is medium, strongly carbonated yet still really sweet. Pepper indeed, also phenolic fruity. Typically Fantome, but light at it. Good!

From Boxbeers. In Teku glass. Playing The Silent Age. Very smooth, with a thick, sticky feel in spite of its low abv. Soft yet easily noticeable funky notes combined with a nice sweetness

Bottlw shared at home with Béla and Shonali. Hazy orange colour small white lacing disappears fast. Nose is peach. Taste is medium sweetness, low bitterness. Some alcoholic warmth, despite the low abv. Apple notes.

This flippy top bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated body semi-transparent and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was musty mild hop and funky. with a mellow funky aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild wheat mild spice mild hops and funk. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

kapusta (118) - Browns Summit, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2017
750ml bottle that cork screamed out when cap was opened. Funky-sour aroma, grass and slight sweetness on the nose. Pours a cloudy bright brilliant orange with a rocky white head. Starts fruity with a hint of tart berry. Light fruit and strong yeastiness in the background. Finishes with a mild tarntess, spicey and funky. Nice creamy mouthfeel

Grzesiek79 (4485) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle from Piwaregionalne.pl in Katowice. Srednia piana jak na belga., opada szybko i bez oznak na tulipanie Duvela. Super aromat owocowy (morela, brzoskwinia, mirabelka), herbaciany. Smak lukrecja, migdaly, guma balonowa, kwasek cytrynowy, troche debiny i mnostwo przyprawowego pieprzu. Pieprz uzywam czesto wyczulem tu nie tylko pieprz czarny ale i zielony. Doskonale przyprawowe piwo pasowalo do kotletow rybnych z Eddo doskonale, oczywiscie do potrawy uzylem pieprzu:) i tak jakbym przesadzil z nim, a byla go tylko szczypta. Na sam koniec mamy przyjemna faze smaku kwasna piwa, ktora trwa i trwa jak podroz Frodo we Wladcy Pierscieni Tolkiena

Terminus (3740) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle Pours murky hazy brown hue with a nice long lasting fizzy eggshell head and no lacing. Nose is musty, estery, slightly barnyard, maybe even a little tart? Flavors really show the tartness throughout the palate-starts slightly funky/barnyard then goes into some bright tartness and finishes with tartness and earthy/almost bready notes. Long finish of lingering funk, bread and earthy saison yeast. Solid beer and pretty interesting profile here. Not a contender to the other Fantome brews though.
