750 into trusty Duvel glass. I must confess: I’ve neglected Fantome until now. I was exposed to Fantome in my beer geek infancy, and I wasn’t ready. Too funky, too weird. Now, I don’t think it’s weird at all, simply beautiful. Uncorked this one with a pop and was immediately assailed by the funk. A nose in the glass discovers snappy carbon dioxide released from the bubbles and yeasty acidity I associate with older, well-aged bottles of Orval. As it warms, dark twiggy things come out in the smell. Flavor and texture in this piece are perfectly married. Initially there’s a rush of limey acid, mouthwatering, riding the tickling carbonation. The middle stays juicy, but other things come to play too. It doesn’t get bogged down in cottony yeastiness like other wild brews, but rather the cardamom and light spiciness stays light and vibrant. The finish is long and lingering, and different waves of flavors drop in to visit: honeydew, lightly buttered bread, light sea salt. Awesome.

Copid (118) - 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 (1608) - 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 (2239) - 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 (6648) - 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 (1193) - 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...

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 (7033) - some beerplace, 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 (1814) - 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.
