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.

Ungstrup (35901) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2004
As a lot of Fantome beers this one really wanted to get out of the bottle, so the cork blew off. An unclear yellow beer with particles of yeast floating around and with a huge white head with small spot of spices. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices especially cinnamon, but also with fruity notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with a slight acidic lemony background and notes of spices, citrus, and hops giving it a slightly bitter end, where the alcohol also makes its presence known by leaving You with a warmth in the mouth, but the alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

Cloudy orange gold beer. Light neutral palate, not a huge amount of carbonation. Tart and fruity - oranges and lemons and more fruits that are hard to pin down. Finishes dry with more of the same tartness. Refreshing. Could have been great with a bit more carbonation.

On tap at the source of all Fantome. Expertly poured by la serveuse artisinale, Giselle - merci Giselle! Cloudy bright golden color, big fluffy white head, great lacing. Aroma of summer fruits and citrus, maybe white pepper. Malts dominate the taste, decent hops also, very smooth and extremely easy to drink.
