fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Cloudy orange pour with a huge, creamy, off white head that. Smells of funk, peat, mineral, Band-Aid, sweet, figgy dark fruits, stone fruit, hints of banana, floral honey and musty hay. Flavor is peat, iodine, mineral, musty hay, lots of Band-Aid, leather, fallen leaves, lots of interesting funky flavors, dug up tree roots, wet leather, old tobacco, musty old plants, then some spice, fig and honey sweetness to the finish along with lingering, Band-Aid, iodine, woody must and general earthy, musky funk. Medium body, creamy, syrupy and slick body, with a surprisingly bright, blanketing carbonation. Overall it’s a difficult beer to judge, there is just so much going on here, some good, some bad (huge Band-Aid presence), though I will have to give it a pretty positive score, huge complexity, hides it’s ABV% well, and c’mon, peat smoked Saison?!?!?

Spicy aroma, cacao, chocolate, coffee, plum. Taste is super dry cacao powder, coffee beans, saison yeast. Very interesting beer. Love that its something different.

Keg. Lots of red wine, malt, plums, and a hint of spices. Relatively boring for a Fantôme.

jamestulloch (4327) - 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.

mgajdaczewa (2285) - 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.

Spicy, malty, but pretty forgettable saison. I expected a lot more from this one.

DiarmaidBHK (5896) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2017
Draft at Bridge tap house. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing. Pretty big horse blanket on the nose. Kind of subdued on the tongue. I was hoping this would be a bigger, more imposing beer.
