COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"With joy and a little bit of mischief, Fantôme brewer Dany Prignon dedicates this very bitter beer to all of the many varieties of brise-bonbons - literally, ball-breakers - in the world. Specifically, this beer is meant for wise-guys, braggarts, pains-in-the-ass, muck-rakers, troublemakers, know-it-alls, stuffed-shirts, blow-hards and bores, as well as nut-cracking, wind-bag, prattling-on, self-appointed experts on everything, and nose-in-the-air snobs, convinced they can do anything better than you. Dany intended to make a beer too bitter for a normal person to enjoy. The problem is, everyone loves it! Guess we’re all just a bunch of brise-bonbons sometimes..." - Shelton Brothers

Thanks jinroh for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing deep amber with no head. The nose shows moderately intense mix of cannabis, dry pine, light lemon, and herbaceous forward character. The palate is moderately carbonated and light bodied. Lightly tart and highly herbaceous throughout followed by a moderate bitterness on the end.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 CBS vertical tasting @ Tim's. Nice orange pour, lightly hazy. Very Belgian nose, some foam on top, super Belgian. Candy sugar. Taste has some good bitterness, herbal and some medicinal herbs there. Quite bitter and not very funky. Dry herbal bitter finish. Interesting one for sure.

TimE (6353) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2018
Light amber color. Dried apricots, spelt, horse blanket in the nose. Very dry. The body is heavier than expected, very funkynwith wildflowers. A bit all of the place. Modest hoppiness. Good but doesn’t blow me away

kapusil (1592) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 16, 2017
0.75l bottle thanks to Cristobal37. Hazy orange body with a white head. Aroma of lemon zest, pepper, honey and lots of citrusy hops. Taste of hay, lemon zest, pepper, grass and citruses. Quite generously hopped saison. Very nice.

Lore (3028) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 16, 2017
Very hazy orange colour, large dense and quite stable white head; aroma of wine cellar, coriander, candied lemon zest and maybe some minimal dried apricot; taste has the same notes with significant amount of hoppy bitterness; great saison; thank you very much, my friend, Cristobal!

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Bb 2018. Hazy dark yella, healthy head. Spicy fruity doughy Fantome yeast dominates. Bitter with hops dominating the taste. Refreshing and the 8% is not apparent at all. Like a more bitter Dupont, I like it.

Bottle on brewery in late august. Pale, high carbo, white head. Grassy and spicy aroma. Very dry, hoppy, hay, delicate crisp bitter finish. Awesome beer!

Ritzn (2188) - GERMANY - NOV 4, 2017
Hazy yellow with little white head. Aroma is citrus, yuzu, hustensaft, slight leather, coriander, other spices. Taste is very bitter, but still drinkable, hoppy leaves, some bonbon juice. Not bad.

FinnIckler (1010) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2017

SinH4 (6917) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is fresh yeasts, a touch moldy, funky, apples. Taste is earthy, funky, apples again, very bitter finish, nearly medicinal. High but soft carbonation. Fun!
