Bottle courtesy of grownfool - Thanks. "La Pietrain" is French for "The Pie Train". True fact. Well, I’m pretty sure, anyway. Anyway, nice mix of tropical citrus and caramel, mixed in with some piney flavors. Tasty stuff.

750, corked and capped. Thanks, M! Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose white head. Toasty cereal, light lemon, and a bit of earth on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Cereals, lemon, and some basementy notes on the mid palate. Interesting and refreshing.

750ml bottle pours out a cloudy copper gold topped with a sand head. Nose is nice spice light citrus lots of floral notes some herbs along with a nice stone fruit touch. Taste is more of the spice light citrus and a good belg yeast touch.

Reviewed from notes. Received via trade from gn0sis, thanks for the bottle Eric! Opened for Fantomefest 2014. Pours a cloudy amber color with maybe a half fingers worth of head. Nose is tart apples, lemon, somewhat yeasty, and a little floral. Flavor follows the nose, quite tart, much moreso than the blonde. Lemon and apple are the predominant themes with some underlying caramel. Medium bodied with good carbonation with a moderately lingering finish. One of the better beers at our tasting, I enjoyed this quite a bit.

poech73 (400) - Braine, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2013
Dégustation @Bruxelles Champêtre 2013. Bière ambrée au col mince à la robe crémeuse. Au nez : levure, caramalt, houblon floral, moût. En bouche, rondeur prépondérante du malt, saveur de moût épicé et légèrement caramélisé qui confère au breuvage un douce pesanteur et qui se termine sur une finale surette. Amertume légère qui s’épanouit dans la longueur en des notes minérales. Surprisement, l’alcool ne se révèle que sur la fin. Intéressant à boire.

(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, florals, grain, and citrus. Flavor of orange, herbs, florals, biscuit, and yeast with a moderately dry finish.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Sweetened malt (artificially?) aroma, Belgian spice, grapes, yeast. Palate follows suit with a surprisingly thick body for a Fantome. Grapes and malt sweetness dominate, supplemented by spice and mild cinnamon. Briefly sour. Better than expected.

Yellow reddish body with no head. Bit of buttered paint in the nose. Fuck if i know why but that smells good. Fruity mild sour flavor. Light nut flavor and a bit of butter
