Bottle. Hazy yellow golden boby with a large white head. Aroma is oregano, herbs, yeast and bread. Flavor is the same. Tasty brew. Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy pale golden coloured with a nice egg white head. Aromas of mint, oregano, citrus fruits and yeast. Flavours of pale malt, yeast, herbs, nicely hopped and end with a dry finish. Tasty brew. brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAR 23, 2010
Bright, semi-translucent, golden pour with a white head that quickly mellows to a nice ring of foam. Nose is doughy yeast, light citrus, and a good wallop of fantome funk. Flavor reveals subdued orange and lemon with a honey-basil sweetness. The oregano shines beautifully in the dry finish, which compliments the yeasty/doughy body perfectly. Carbonation is very soft and the mouthfeel is slick. Overall, this is a supremely refreshing and interesting brew that goes down quite easily. Not going to ’wow’ everybody; but as a Fantome Fanatic, this was an amazing treat for me. Christian (13927) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2010
Slightly hazy golden with a firm and lasting white head. Refined fruity aroma with a touch of banana and mild herbal notes. When you know it’s oregano you can identify it. Dry and herbal flavour and quite bitter. Pretty clean for a Fantôme Dedollewaitor (16543) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle @ Carlsens Kvarter, Odense. Pours deep and unclear orange with a stable white head and lacings. Nose is herbs at first. Some oregano, yeast and mint. Dry and very inviting. Full bodied. Smooth. Balanced and dry flavor with yeast, dough and grain on top of the herbs. Dry end. Very tasty Fantome.
Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 28, 2009
750 ml bottle. A cloudy orange beer with an average sized, mostly lasting, white head. Peculiar aroma (no wonder), moderately malty and yeasty, lightly hoppy with notes of toasted grains, flowers, spices (mainly oregano, of course). Rather rustic nose. The flavour is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Surprising, and not totally in a postive way at the first sip, more intriguing at the followings. medium body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with medium bitterness, lightly sharp, not alcoholic at all. It’s hard to drink an entire bottle of this, but apart this little minus, if you share it, it’s a pleasant and unusual beverage Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2009
In short: A very weird spicy fruity wild ale. For FantômeHeads only.Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when about 1 year of age (about 1 year after first rating, one batch?)
The look: Cloudy pink-orange body (unusual color) topped by a white ring of foam
In long: Intriguing nose (even by unorthodox Fantôme standards) with a weird aroma that I’d describe as some kind of deodorant with a name like “Fruity Spicy Wilderness”. Taste is just plain unusual (even by unorthodox Fantôme standards). Oregano, spicy hard candies, light horse blanket funkiness, cleaning product, lots of cute aromatic flowers, old acidic orange juice, very astringent with a strange acidity, peaches, Sprite™ soda-pop, . And why not a a little sourness too. I’ll I’m very lenient when it comes to Fantôme eccentricities but this one tested my limits. I liked it because it is fucked-up and has a Saison countryside character but really this is just a “let’s throw a bunch of stuff in the tank and see what happens” type of beer. Not sure what to think of this beer (and now the brewery in general), I haven’t been this perplexed since I got “Error: Keyboard not found, press any key to continue”.
750 ml bottle at Bistro l’autre oeil with Sammy. Clear orange golden with no head. Aroma is floral, acidic and tart with apples and malt. Flavor is spicy and fruity with apples and vinegar. Medium body with low carbonation. Sammy (12995) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2009
Lautre Oeil, with Diogene. Bright orange colour and a bubbly head. here are carbonation like bubbles present, yet there is little carbonation. A little lace remains. I never thought vinegar would taste so great, so this is extreme beer that is not hopped up. I like oregeno in any case, and this was unique, drinkable, and worth seeking out for sour fans, yet it is not too sour. Eructoblaster (4454) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle - 750ml. Pours a hazy amber body with low carbonation and a thin off-white foamy head. Strong hoppy aroma with fruity, floral and herbal hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste is slightly misbalanced and lacks both robustness and complexity. Ends with a short bitter/sour finish. Average Saison.
