Aroma has sweet brown sugar tones. Also some ripe fruits. Flavour is tart with citrus, some peppery spices, grapefruit, dried fruits and slightly toasted brown sugar. Interesting, tries to be sweet but tart Fantôme twist balances it.

75 cl bottle purchased from Etre. Shared at Fantomefest 2014. Pours a murky pale orange in color with a thin white head, maybe half a fingers worth before quickly dissipating. The nose is earthy/floral, spicy, and has a little bit of orange peel. Taste is bitter, herbal, orange zest, and a little sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. One of the fan favorites of the Sante lineup, I enjoyed it, but not as much as the 12.
