LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Brownish orange, light head. Peppery aroma, cumin. Sweet malt, and some dry spice on the tongue. Tastes really come out as it warms.

Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2018
Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Smell of burn caramel, metal and brunes, raisins. Taste is subtle, figs, sweet, some wood and gentle spices. Warming, smooth, full bodied, flavour sticks to the tongue and the wood and yeast build over time. Slight tartness to balance the sweetness. This is a well refined beer.

Cristobal37 (1287) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 28, 2017
Bb 2019. Cola brown, no head. Soy sauce, cabbage, spices, pretty weird aroma. Sour at first, port wine, then lots of malt and Christmas cookies. Mild sour aftertaste, vinegar and overall quite dry mouthfeel. Well it's different for sure. A winey malty sour "saison". Cheers to Fantome for doing what they want but this one is stranger than it is special.

Trübes Rotbraun mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, erdig, Portwein, Pflaume, leichte Säure, Kräuter, etwas Pfeffer.

Keg @ Andrew Usher’s. Heavy white wine / white grape aromas. Sour, lingering, green apples, musk, somewhat syrupy.

erikaraeb (325) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Keg. Lots of red wine, malt, plums, and a hint of spices. Relatively boring for a Fantôme.

2.5
jamestulloch (4418) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2017
Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Hazy chestnut body with no head or lacing. Aroma of malt vinegar, nuts and red apple. Flavour of sour apple, bitter lemon and a hint of cinnamon. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Overly sour for my liking.

3.4
mgajdaczewa (2350) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
W aromacie sporo czerwonych owoców, lekko suszone owoce, przyprawy, muśnięcie cynamonu. Owocowość pomiędzy śliwką węgierką a żurawiną. W smaku bardzo podobnie, uniknięto skojarzeń z kompotem z suszu, ale sporo jest tu akcentów suszonych owoców i przypraw. Złożone, bardzo ciekawe, acz nie do końca satysfakcjonujące.
