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.

mansquito (6258) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Brus bottle: pours a hazy brownish orange with a large white head. Aroma is mostly the funky yeasts, maybe a hint of pepper. Chocolate is not really in the aroma but vaguely in the taste. Really funky innthe taste. Good body. Complex and interesting, even if the name is sort of misleading.

Muddy orange of color with a white head. An aroma of yeast, dry, spice and fruits. A flavor of fruits, spice, yeast and dry finish.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2017
(comprada no site wbeer.com.br) Marrom de média turbidez, sem espuma. Ácido perceptível, difícil identificar cacau e chocolate. Tomamos essa cerveja em 6 pessoas diferentes, todos concluíram que ela foi mal armazenada ou estava contaminada.

Renobob (2026) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 26, 2017
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Grosse déception pour cette Fantôme. Liquide brunâtre plat peu appétissant. Au palais, aucun intérêt, c’est plat, à peine épicé. Nulle

freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2017
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la pizz Couleur dégueulasse de cacolac, peu de mousse pas d’effervescence. Nez sur... je sais pas... En bouche saison acide et c’est tout... Aucun intérêt.

Nice light chili flavor. I do wish the chili flavor was stronger. Chocolate flavor is not very apparent.

kapusta (100) - Olive Branch, Mississippi, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Typical (of Fantome beers) hazy light orange color with huge rocky head. In the nose, some light citrus notes, maybe green chili and strong yeast. Flavor is banyrard funky, peppery, semi-sweet. I did not notice cocoa or chilis? Medium body with natural carbonation.

danielyabu (1636) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 26, 2016
Frothy offwhite virtually none head. Virtually none lacing. Mostly diminishing. Flat thick dark brownish-amber body. Aroma: light malty, caramel, citrus orange and lemon, moderate yeasty. Initial flavor: moderate sweet acidic. Final flavor: light sweet moderate acidic light bitter; long duration. Palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation and light astringent and alcoholic finish. dulçor maltado permeado por acidez tradicional de saison. Cacau bem presente no final. Bem condimentada – sente-bem bem a presença da pimenta chili. Ingredientes diferenciados dão um charme a mais sem distorcer as características do estilo. Ainda assim, não está entre os melhores rótulos da cervejaria que já tive a oportunidade de degustar. Cerveja exótica, interessante. 110 s

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the damn book. What the hell did I do to you? The pour is a dark orange color with a thicker white head that falls to a thick bubbly ring leaving a bit of lace. The aroma is not terrible. There is a strong Belgian candy and a light chocolate to go with a lingering pepper on the back end. It’s interesting in the complexity, but it’s not overly great at all. The flavor is lacking in everything other than the Belgian yeast. There is a candied yeast and a hint of pepper on the finish, but the chocolate isn’t anywhere to be found. This is bland all around. The mouth feel is a little thicker and almost has no carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly yeasty with a touch of heat. This is not a great beer at all.
