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.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2011
Pours a pretty, burnt deep orange with ample white head. Aroma shows Fantome house character. Funk, lemon, hay, sock, crackery pilsner malt, citrus. No chile or chocolate noted, just normal Saison spiciness. Flavor is mildly tart, still no spice or chocolate noted, fruity and fairly dry with a quick finish. This beer is nothing like I thought it would be. Pretty normal, standard Fantome here. Which is good enough for me.

Beerhunter111 (22214) - P´Castle, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2017
75cl bottle courtesy of Erzengel! A slightly hazy golden beer with a small off-white head. Aroma of tart fruits, yeast, yellow fruits. Taste soft tart fruits, brett, wood, herbs, limen, nice!

ippopotamo36 (2496) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 13, 2017
Tap @Luppolo Station (Rome). Cloudy amber pour, irregular off-white foam. Nose: esters, spicy, sweet almond cookies, zest. Mouth: refreshing, cocoa and chili are hidden but you can spot them right away if you know it. Round start, confusing finish but quite interesting.

Goodfella86 (12) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2017
Cooled for 48hours prior to opening. Opens with a slight bang but no gushing lucky 😉. It hits you with bready malts, rich esters, faint spices, tabaco, dry saison yeast, little banana, grapefruit. Taste is weird at first with an off blend of spices cacao and a pale ale. But when it coates the mouth it all comes together. Little burnt onions, bit roasty, not crazy spicy but just a little bite. Gets more interesting when warming up. A strange concoction indeed but still somewhat balanced. I must admit I'm always very forgiving when it comes to fantome but this is just good!

Biroholik (1524) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - SEP 14, 2017
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.

gr_pa (804) - siemianowice, POLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Nice look. Bit oxidated, fruity; oranges. Long, tart, spicy finish. Well hidden alcohol.

3.4
FinnIckler (784) - 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.

wombat23 (1665) - Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2017
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.

2.8
darbeer75 (955) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2017
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.
