SinH4 (4564) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Bottle, Lot 3B M15, BB 2020, I suppose this is the 2017 batch. After pulling the cork out, the beer starts to awake and slowly built up foam. Pours a cloudy dark orange to amber color with a fluffy and large lively head. Aroma is flowery and spicy, rosemary, thyme, dough, peppery yeasts, phenolic-estery, starfruit, herbal as well, a touch of oranges, honey and peppermint in there too. Taste is fruit esters, dough, with aromatic spices, again rosemary, thyme, herbes de provence, peppermint, and some honey again. Super well-hidden alcohol, peppery finish. Oily and silky mouthfeel with a surprisingly low carbonation (which is somehow present, but very fine-bubbled). Long and intense aftertaste of herbes de provence that makes you smack your lips more than just once. As expected from Fantôme, the beer is heavily spiced, but they work out perfectly here, it?s a very aromatic and complex Saison that still retains some thirst-quenching characteristics despite its high alcohol content. Delightful and sublime!

BeerLuvver (100) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Super fresh bottle from the 2017 spring production at Beautiful Beers. Pours a beautiful hazy yellow with a good, long white head pointing towards wheat ingredients. Scent of yeast and light spices. Taste is very refreshing with the typical belgian yeast flavours; light spicy, peppery taste. Lovely malt base off set by light funkiness, fruity, estery and juicy hop flavours. Finishes with a nice bitterness with lingering spices, ready for the next mouthful. Delicious.

mateuszk (2668) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 5, 2017
Bottle, 2013. Light phenols, lots of herbs (thyme, oregano, basil), nice mint in aftertaste, some slight funk present too. Light body, high carbonation, bit funky finish. great saison.

Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2017
Amarelo turvo, espuma branca de média formação e pouca persistência. Aroma carregado de especiarias, eucalipto, camomila, gramínea, complexa. Perde um pouco da potencia e aroma com tempo de copo, esperava mais.

Copid (167) - POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Butelka do końca 2018 roku. Potworny gushing. W aromacie sporo owoców, cytryn, brzoskwini, pomarańczy, mięty oraz lekkiej nuty funku. W smaku ciało średnie z posmakiem miętowo-owocowym wymieszanym z innymi ziołami. Bardzo złożone piwo.

kapusta (100) - Olive Branch, Mississippi, USA - DEC 31, 2016
A special thanks to Valéry and Dany for sharing some glasses with me. Cloudy bright orange color with a white head. The aroma is fresh citrus and spicy with barnyard Brett funkiness and grass. Packed full of sweet citrus fruits, spice, subdued hops, malt, and peppery mango. Extremely easy to drink, tangy and spicey. 3 drafts later, I was ready for a nap.

danielyabu (1636) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 12, 2016
Average frothy white head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing. Flat thick light-orange body. Aroma: citrus lemon, white wine, nutmeg, white pepper, pine and lemon grass. initial flavor: light sweet moderate acidic. final flavor: light sweet moderate acidic light bitter and salty hints; long duration. Palate: light medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation and light astringent and salty finish. spicy aroma. Sabor bem condimentado, apimentado (nota-se levemente o sabor de lúpulo), lembra também um pouco de banana, que persiste até o final. Muito mais complexa que a média do estilo. Dulçor acido lembra também um pouco de vinho branco, remetendo a presença que aparecia no aroma. Lembra sour/wild ale. Leve gosto de cinzas, como visto na cantillon. 170 s

Korcz (3134) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Wow! Genialny, lekko dziki i kwaśny, wspaniałe fenolowy Saison. Zdziczenie poszło w rewelacyjną stronę. Pyszne, przypomina mi nieco niektóre piwa Hill Farmstead.

PhillyCraft (6959) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2016
BB log, Bottle, pours a hazy copper color with large and lasting head. Smell is pine, white pepper, grass, and saison yeast. Flavor was basement, herbs, flowers, and banana. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. Another nice Fantome beer.
