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.

Kran w Muted Horn. Aromat owocowy, brzoskwinie, przyjemny. W smaku wychodzi dość intensywny alkohol, do tego owoce, nuty przyprawowe.

Tap at Muted Horn, Berlin. Unclear orange beer with white head. Aroma of peach, pear, spices, coriander, yeast. Taste is light+ sweet and bitter, peach, citrus, spices, pear, yeast, notes of pepper. Medium body, average to lively carbonation. Crisp, fruity and quite complex. Very good saison.

Draught in muted horn. Cloudy orange with a medium head. Aroma of pepper and fruit. Flavour is yeast and citrus spice, light fruit finish, a little chili on the palate.

Trolleo (1589) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 5, 2017
Cloudy amber to red color, small white head. Nice fruity aroma, hints of sourness, some bubblegum. Flat to medium body. Watery finish. Good but not the best out there.

750ml bottle at home. the beer has little carbonation. Has a lovely deep orange colour. very easy to drink. I have no idea what’s inside the beer . You can’t taste the 8% beer.

Bacchus66 (521) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2017
From tap. Hazy yellow gold with s full white head and good lacing. Spicy, fruity nose. Citrus, yeast, spice, grassy flavors. Fizzy carbonation and a tart, medium finish. Really nice.

25.4floz (750ml) bottle, no freshness, paid the discounted price $5 about six months ago. Poured into a large snifter glass appearing hazy gold with a small layer of head. Yeast drives this beer, from the leathery, field greens, and medicinal aroma to the ester dominate palate. Pear, honey, rose depict the array of flavors over a full-bodied and soft carbonation feel. Very good saison.

Ktwse (5020) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Pours hazy to murky golden brownish with low white head. Aroma of pepper, coriander, wheat, spices. Taste is mild tart with a light yeasty and sweet finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

MelvinKalksma (1574) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, Saison yeast, bread, hops and citrus.

Opaque golden/amber beer with slight yeast and with a slight off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, fruit and Saison yeast; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. God damn it, another amazing Saison from thos brewery. Lovely refreshing beer with a hint of fruit and some very slight funk at the end. Perfect appearance and a great aroma and palate as well.
