COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 This is fantastic stuff. Some where in between a lambic and a saison. Smooth very drinkable, spicy, complex. Serving: Bottle

mansquito (5591) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Alewife, Queens bottle: pours slightly hazed light orange with a small white head. Aroma is funky, spicy, yeasty... really nice smell for those who like it. Taste is somewhat tart. Funky and spicy. Nice complexity. Super soft carbonation. Quite good.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Dziwny, zalegający, ziołowy posmak, przypominający nieco niesmaczny syrop na gardło.

Bottle at WTWBA. Hazy golden pour. Aroma is funky citrus and yeast. Taste is dry white wine and citrus. Not my favorite from them.

Lys brun klar med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter korn, åker, noe eple. Søtlig fruktig lett bitter i smak. Kort.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, many thanks! Best before end 2019. Pours hazy orange-ish yellow, but the haziness is mostly through me stirring up the bottle a bit too much. A truly marvelous saison with a fruity punchy nose as you could get it from a fresh IPA but also that yeast character that only saison has. Fizzy carbonation adds to a beautiful soft texture and brings out more fruit flavours, orange and mango and a bit of citrus. Lightly acidic and a hint tart, making for a fresh taste. Outstandingly tasty!

Aroma: dry and fruity; slightly sour; Appearance: thick orange pour with little head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follow nose; light and fruity with dry finish; Overall: pleasant, like white wine.

unclemike (2953) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Orange color, cloudy. Aroma has dairy cheese and framboise with hops shining trough. A bit of sweetness in the flavor, but overruled by a sour creme sourness. Goats cheese! There are hops present, but on the background. Citrus. Very interesting beer, probably hasn’t the flavor that it ought to have, but I really liked it.

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Tap. No head. Hazy burnt orange rust. Sweet passion fruit and some sourness in the aroma as well, almost a candy note. Some nail polish thatbreallypissesmeoff. Flavor is strawberry, acetone, touch of seer earth. Meh. Medium droopy body. Bad batch?!

Importerad från Brewdog Skottland. Tjock, orangefärgade med lätt smutsvit skumkrona. Kraftig doft av lätt förmultade äpplen och vinäger. Sötsyrlig kropp. Smak av vitvinsvinäger, äppelkart, tart, apelsinzest, äppelmos och citrus.

Pullo @ The Bottle Shop, Brugge. Kaatuu tulppaaniin oranssinkultaisena ja sameahkona, noin 2,5 sormen paksuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa on raikkaan happamaa sitruunaisuutta, makeampaa hedelmää, vahvasti pippurista mausteisuutta ja hiven karviaismaista marjaisuutta. Maku on iskevän happaman sitruunainen ja yrttinen, vähemmän pippuruisuutta ja karviaista, joka yhtyy sitruunaisuuteen. Suutuntuma on hyvin hapan (saisoniksi), kuiva ja melko hiilihappoinen. Monipuolinen ja yllättävänkin hapan saison, todella paljon yhdessä paketissa. Hivenen raskas saisoniksi, mutta sopii paremmin syksyyn.
