4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Average frothy white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Flat thick light-orange body. Aroma: flowers, citrus orange, light yeasty, alcohol, melon, chamomile. Initial flavor: light sweet bitter moderate acidic. Final flavor: light sweet moderate acidic bitter; long duration. Palate: full body, dry syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent spicy finish. Uma das cervejas mais encorpadas que já degustei na vida. Sabor cítrico de tangerina. Dulçor lembra um pouco de malte no final. Amargor de casca de frutas (terroso). Esconde bem o teor alcoólico de 8%. O sabor, como indicado na descrição comercial, lembra ainda limão e também morango. Apresenta a acidez prickly característica ao estilo. Muito boa atenuação, com um final seco que elimina o dulçor inicial e o amargor final, predominando principalmente a acidez frutada. Final bem condimentado, “pinicando” a boca. Ultima taça traz lembrança de vinho branco. Complexa. Muito saborosa. Descrição comercial:
Dany Prignon é conhecido como o mestre das Saisons, estilo típico da região da Valônia, na Bélgica.

Há uma riqueza de aromas e sabores, destacando-se as notas frutadas de limão, pêssego, maçã, morango, laranja, toques de especiarias e o eucalipto.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
750ml bottle - thanks Martjoobolut!
If my flat smells of this tomorrow, then fuck you, mister fantome. Gushed the fuck everywhere. So fuck you mister fantome. I have a wooden floor, once this had completely covered the table, it spilt all over the fucking floor. leaving only about a quarter of the bottle. Smells of rubber, old old rubber bands. Despite the obnoxious fizzplosion, the palate is watery and flat. Taste kinda rubbery like the aroma. Fuck this. Don’t fuck up my fucking floor with your fucking inability to brew. Fuck you, cunt. Will you pay for the cleaning that I will need to do?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gushed a bit. Hazy gold with a white head that fades quickly. Lots of citrus - you’d guess actual zest of ruby grapefruit and lime - light toffee, funk, some tropical fruit (or vegetables - bush tomato?). Very light bodied, soft carbonation. Almost radler-like taste with lots of juicy fruit - nectarines as well as the tropical and citrus - some hard spices at the somewhat bitter finish. A bit of overt alcohol at the end, too. It’s intriguing and refreshing but there’s not enough depth or presence for 8%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with the work crew. Thanks to Vicky. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aromas of saison yeast esters, citrus and light tomato. Taste is very dry, tart citrus, more fruit. Dry finish. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is super citrus forward with quite a bit of lemon and lime zest. Lighter floral and herbal notes with coriander and grains of paradise. Yarrow and rose hips. Light grain notes. Some light stone fruit esters.
Pours a somewhat hazy, yellow gold with a medium small, moderately thick, white head that recedes somewhat quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with a medium to medium light acidity. Hints of grain with some medium to medium light honey notes. Moderate floral and herbal notes with a bit of grass. Lighter citrus zest notes. Medium low bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice Fantome. Super zesty and bright in the aroma with a bit more of an earthy herbal and floral character in the flavor. Not sure I am digging the flavor as much as the aroma, but its still a very nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy bright, rusty orange with a soapy, off-white collar. Aromas of yeast, oranges, melon. Sweet, fruity flavor. Green apple, nectarine. A unique funky character that can only be attributed to Fantôme. Santé!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky Orange amber, nice glow. Heads starts nice, but totally disappears... Rough amber malts, berries, gin, fruity fermentation, farmy. Very typically atypical Fantôme beer! Foamy carbonation, ugly head and an alcohol heat can’t prevent me from really liking this... Sorry! Must be the typical farmhouse yeast. (75cl bottle from Être Gourmet)
