Leighton (19493) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Big thanks to Mateo! Pours hazy gold with with a strong, white foam head. Sugary bread in the nose, some hints of tangy, ripe citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots of white, bready malts, some alcohol, hay, white sugar. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, some syrupy sugars, white bread, light spices, alcohol, white bread. Decent.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 4, 2013
750mL <<GUSHER WARNING>> from a trade on BA. Pours a full haze, brighter orange. Thicker white foam. Nose is lightly funky, some heavier candies, candy corn, potpourri lemon and orange. Taste is very odd- paper is the dominant flavor, some smoke, some very in your face toasted pumpkin seed dustiness, cell wall astringency, a bit uncanny. No complexity- just a ton of pumpkin seed. Perhaps very light spicy acidity in the back end. Bizarre, but what were you expecting?

baraciisch (3026) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Hazy yellow in color... Aroma of citrus, wild yeast... Flavor is citrus initially, almost like a Belgian wit with orange zest, but finish is strongly Brett... Delicious and unique

JAXSON (575) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours clear light amber with a large, thick head. Nose is way more pumpkin forward than I expected, with some spices and Belgian yeast kick. Mouth oddly sweet and pumpkin meat, pie spices, crust. Didn’t expect this from Fantome, basically it’s a legitimate pumpkin ale with a nicely integrated Belgian yeast component. Carbonation is really high. I thought this was going to be some weird, sour, grassy saison with a minimal impression of pumpkins, but that’s not the case. Decent, not amazing or anything, doesn’t blow me away, but a good beer.

ThirstyBird (2676) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Pours a hazy amber color with small tan head. Smell is funky, spicy yeast. Taste is tart fruit, a little spice, dry and slightly sour. Medium body and nicely carbonated....nice! Very tasty stuff!

Bottle, courtesy Brigadier, thanks! Pours dark gold, white head. Aroma is smokey, pumpkin, medicinal notes. Taste is lightly tart, leather, pumpkin, smoke. Palate is dry, soft, creamy, smokey finish. Odd.

750 ml bottle
Split with tastybeer this was a beer that I could not pass up when I saw it on the shelves during a beer run. It might have been a little on the pricy side but sometimes you just have to pull the trigger. If this comes around next year pick one up for a fun Halloween.

Aroma / Appearance - Carbonated with a stark white head, the base is the color of a candlelight carved pumpkin. Iced pumpkin, yeast, and smoke mix well. Of the three the smoke is least expected. It smells a bit like roasted pumpkin seeds.

Flavor / Palate - Imagine lighting a pumpkin on fire, putting it out with a handful of snow, throwing it in a blender, and topping it with whipped cream. This is not what I imagine from a seasonal but as a result it stands out. Throw in a couple sips of orange slice and you have the whole package. This beer is worth trying just for the novelty.
