kapusta (111) - Browns Summit, North Carolina, 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 (1637) - 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

Wow! Genialny, lekko dziki i kwaśny, wspaniałe fenolowy Saison. Zdziczenie poszło w rewelacyjną stronę. Pyszne, przypomina mi nieco niektóre piwa Hill Farmstead.

PhillyCraft (7090) - 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.

alteregoo (1394) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Pana obfita, średnio oczkowa, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa pomarańczowo bursztynowa, mętna. Aromat głównie przyprawowy, ziołowy, z pierwszoplanowym zapachem szałwii, tymianku, lipy, w tle kandyzowane owoce, miód, syrop na kaszel... W smaku podobnie, jest owocowa słodycz, suszone morele, głóg, wino domowe, odrobina starej skóry, siana... Goryczka średnia, pikantno ziołowa, lekko garbnikowa, zalegająca. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający, posmaki w typie cukierków "ice". Wysycenie średnie, dość pełne, słodowe w odbiorze.
Ten lekko miętowy, anyżkowy posmak "ajsów" nie do końca gra w tym piwie i to w sumie jedyny, ale fundamentalny, zarzut... Po wypiciu kilku łyków piwo "męczy". A mógł być całkiem fajny Saison...

ruigo (2706) - PORTUGAL - SEP 16, 2016
75cl bottle. Hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Floral, grassy, fruity and spicy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced with caramel and yeasty notes. Overall, a good beer.

kraddel (7802) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Pours clear blonde, huge white head. Smell is super intense, woody spices. Repellingly intense on the dryness, reminding on lemon-grass, rather than a nice dryness of a sour . Taste is sharp, intense, bitter, spiceBOMB , no sane person can call this even remotely balanced. it’s like eating a spoon of herbs and spices. Thym and rosemary to the max.

ciocanelu (2463) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Hazy golden color with fluffy white head. Aroma has lots of herbs and spices like rosemary and thyme. Taste follows, herbal and sweet, like a sweetened herbal tea. It’s quite rustic and tasty but I would prefer it to be more dry.

nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Keg at Ushers. Pours murky brown. Nose is sourish herbal and floral, peppery, spices. Tastes sour herbal, bitter, grapes, peppery. Not really my thing.

koleminer20 (3464) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house on July 04 for the first beer I’ve brewed with him! 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy lemon colored bright yellow with a thick white head that falls slowly, forming a dense cap and a couple legs of lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a ton of lemongrass, but there is a huge floral grassiness to this that is interesting. The spiciness on the back end really is a deterrent for me. The flavor is very similar. Maybe a little more fruitiness to it, but it’s just so damn spicy and grassy. The mouth feel is surprisingly thick and softly carbonated for a saison. There is a light banana that joins the bright lemongrass and floral spice on the back aftertaste. This is interesting, but I’d never had a Fantôme beer before. It wasn’t spoiled, so that’s a good start.
