UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 An unclear dark orange beer with a fine orange head. The aroma is sour with notes of yeast and oranges. The flavor is dominated by yeast but also has notes of coriander. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is spicy, earthy, barnyardy as well as some mild fruits and mild maltyness. Flavour is quite much the same in a very pleasant balance. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2006
Corked bottleharrisoni (18577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
The cork popped with a loud sound; light amber color; fizzy head, small; nice perlage. Aroma of old malt, fresh wood, cellar. Medium body structure, some malt flavor; it has a nice woody astringency, tart, Belgian hops, good level of bitterness. Interesting and very good.
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Golden cloudy colour with no head. Sour lemon and other good citruic fruits. Finish has good fruits. Bit of farmyard. Somehow I detected lentils in the taste as well. More citric lime on the finish. My first Fantome, I think and it has stirred my interest to try others.

750mL bottle, courtesy of julian, pours a cloudy dark orangey brown with a voluminous white head. Aroma is a bit oxidized with metallic notes, Belgian yeast, and stale wet cardboard. Flavour of wet cardboard, cork, and other dry, construction site notes. Lively carbonation. Too bad this isn’t a bit newer as I think this would be very enjoyable fresher, but as is now, this is past its prime. Not s good. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Very cloudy beige. Funky, spicy, sour aroma - you know this is Fantome right away. Lightish, flowery (chamomile), funky and acidic. Probably one of the more straightforward Fantomes but quite delicious nonetheless. A statement in understatedness. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Hazy golden pour. Taste is lemon citrus with some breads and grain. Very light fruits on the palate. Rated 2/12/05 brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from 2002, I believe. A cloudy golden orange color with a big white head. Really an interesting nose. Lots of perfume and melon notes. A hint of cork, unfortunately. A fair amount of citrus and some white grape. Decently sweet on the palate with good fruit notes (mostly citrus and grape, though there is some sweet melon). A touch of bread and yeast without much in the way of cork as there was on the nose. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
