COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian ’saison-style’ ale brewed with cocoa powder and chili pepper? Ay, Caramba! Score another first for the unpredictable brewery that was the first -- and so far the only - brewery to make ales out of dandelions and mushrooms, among other things.

Silvan7 (1261) - Samarate, - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle @ home. Particolare come quasi tutte le Fantome. l’aroma ricorda in qualche modo quello delle lambic per la marcata acidità. si aggiungono il profumo del cacao amaro in polvere e quello di frutta (pere soprattutto) . Il colore è un misto tra il nocciola e l’ambrato, parecchio torbida. Migliora con la’ssaggio , dove, oltre all’acido e al vinoso già sentiti al naso, aggiunge l’alcolico, il tostato e un lieve sentore di peperoncino ( se non fosse stato scritto sull’etichetta avrei fatto fatica a capire cosa fosse quella spezia). veramente particolare. Finale secco, luppolato.

Piwne Degustacje, Browariat Katowice (10.09.2017)
Kolor pomarańczowy. Wysoka, bujna piana. Piana cały czas się utrzymuje. W aromacie owoce cytrusowe, pomarańcze, mandarynki. Z tyłu delikatna czekolada i sproszkowane kakao. W smaku mocno przyprawowe, ziołowe z dużà dozą kakao w tle. Piwo jest umiarkowanie słodkie ze sporą przyprawowością w tle. Trochę słodkie, trochę kwaśne. Spox.

Nice look. Bit oxidated, fruity; oranges. Long, tart, spicy finish. Well hidden alcohol.

FinnIckler (757) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle from luvians. Pours hazy orange with some floaters. Nose is orange, mandarin, apricot, this typical belgian Saison smell that reminds me of maracuja Joghurt. Palate is chocolate (how is this not in the nose?), orange, citrus. Bitter finish. Surprisingly light. Weird but good Saison.

Shared 750ml bottle. Pours pale gold with a bit of haze. Aroma of yeast, fruit, and spice. Tastes more like a Belgian ale or Belgian strong ale than a saison. Cocoa is very faint as is the chili pepper. Interesting.

Aroma: combination of belgian ale and pale lager; Appearance: clear light amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with additional maltiness; not so good; Palate: medium body with medium finish; Overall: not my favorite. Would not get again.

mgajdaczewa (2220) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Aromat brettowy, pestkowy, białe owoce, ale i kiszonka, do tego ździebko kakao. W smaku mocno niesharmonizowane, kakao pyliste, kiszonka, trochę pestki, dość wytrawne. Trochę słabo.

Cunningham (8163) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2017
Hazed glowing deep golden color with a fine white head. Looks good and inviting. Fine intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Mild chocolate is dominating the flavor. Aslo some yeast, malty and some spices. Not really exciting.
[Bottle from a trade with Inbreak]

Drinked in bottle. At the nose cereal notes and some yeasty note. A pleasant warmess from alcohol and some spicy like chili. In mouth is medium bodied, very rich and complex. A important caramel sweetness at the beginning and then is quite astringent and very dry. Could be interesting taste it , two or three years old

Bevuta in bottiglia. Colore arancione tendente all’ambra. Al naso agrumi, esteri del lievito e caramello. In bocca leggero Malto, cioccolato fine e finale piacevolmente secco
