This is a tremendously delicious, textural, and fizzy county ale, bright gold colour, citric and sour, reminiscent of a good champagne or lambic but in a class all its own.
Fantôme – Golden ale, 8% alc. by volume, with a wonderfully musty and characterful aroma. There are many drinkers out there who believe this is the “Nectar of the Gods.” Certainly no other brewer makes beer like this, in Belgium or anywhere. How many beers of 8% plus offer such fresh fruitiness? A solid Belgian saison beer at its base, with an unusual overlay of fruitiness.

IlGagario (119) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 5, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 On tap. Colore giallo oro limpido. Schiuma abbondante, fitta, a shampoo. Naso di fieno, balsamico e vinoso, lontanamente acetico. Carbonazione soffice. In bocca acidità citrica, dolce e azzimata, lunga e balsamica, uva, nota acetica, melissa e rosa. Astringenze delicate, gradevoli. Corpo da sottile a medio. Struttura watery con picchi balsamici all’aroma di bocca. In bilico tra una saison e una geuze, è una birra complessa, generosa e aromatica, con carattere di rarefazione ma anche di sapidità, ad alta scorrevolezza di beva. Una concreta delizia da casa Fantome.
