Pours a murky amber with an off-white head. Has a tart fruity scent & a hint of barnyard. Somewhat grainy and dry for a saison. Upfront tart berry flavors with a gritty bitter finish, almost coffe like. Different. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2006
Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a rocky beige head, yeasty, winey fruitiness, with a nice spicy nose of coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla, with some ripe apples fruity notes, toasted malt, sort of musky feeling in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty winey fruitiness character, of ripe apples, raisins, vinous notes, funkiness, leading towards an acidic fruity peppery finish. I’m less impress of this one, than the firt time i tasted in spuyten duyvel 2004. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Poured a nice dark orange-copper color with a light tan head. Aroma was grassy and combined a meld of spices. Flavor suggested apples, cloves, anise, and had an oddly appealing peppery heat at the end that lingered in conjunction with a mild sourness. JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2006
I wish I could get a janitorial job at Fantome. i would then mop the floors and proceed to drink the dirty mop water. It would probably still taste very good. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2006
A big pop when this one opens. Amber body and quite hazy. Massive rocky and frothy head with gentle lacing. Aroma is yeasty with some black pepper, cloves, mint and citrus hops. Flavour is sweet at the front with peach and pepper before mellowing out and turning sour, drier and hoppier. There is a lingering of burntness that is quite unique.

The aroma had soury fermented fruit, sea water, coriander, flowers, and cinnimon. The beer poured a yellow color with gold highlights, slight lasting head and lacing. The flavor had soury fermented fruit, spices, malts, and flowers. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated with a dry finish. lamas (1639) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2006
750mL bottle courtesy of Degarth. Pours a murky rust color with a decent-sized tan head. A musty, floral aroma with hints of tangy citrus and spiciness. Starts off quite sour with some lemons and tangerines. Finishes with some grassy and bitter dryness. An herbal body underneath it all with hints of mint and pepper. Soft body. Each Fantome beer I try makes me wanna step up my herb game. SSSteve (4006) - - AUG 20, 2006

Palate is lightly tingly with a very nice mouthfeel, kinda fluffy but goes down easy. Flavor is grassy and sour with some nice funkiness to it.
