Stouts III Tasting. Cloudy gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Pretty nice generic fruits are soon overpowered by white smoke. Citric peel hop bitterness before the dry finish. Typically Fantome left field.
Bottle courtesy of 77ships, thanks! Murky yellow color, small but thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of dusty lemons and attic-stored grapefruits. Taste is bitter lemon and dilute straw. Leighton (22823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at the Stouts Pt. III & Others - London. Thanks to Kenny. Pours hazy yellow with a fine, white froth head. Nose of smokey wheat, lemon and dough. It has that golden ale smokiness defect. It’s weird. Smokey pale malts, bitter hay, grass. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Some soap. Warm finish, more off smoke, pale malts, light wheat, straw and hay, bitter grass. Certainly a bit off. Odd. So so. Fantome! Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle @ Pre-Christian Firtal Pale Ale Festival Tasting, 2013. Pours hazy yellow with a creamy head. Rubber and leather. Greatly phenolic. Phenolic smoke. Wauw - quite filthy. Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Bottle at Stout 3 & Freestyle Tasting, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is earth, hay, pear, apple, melon, nectarine, apricot and light tartness. The taste is hay, sherbet, apple, pear, melon, straw and some mouldy wood with a dry finish. Medium-full body and high carbonation. So-so.

75 cl. swing-top bottle sampled – procured from Willems. Very hazy golden, fading creamy white head to the sides. Huge citrus in the nose, lots of it, very fruity yeast, white bread, sweet, sweet floral, cleaning products,… Sweet thick yeast, light plaster, some near fake lemon, flowers, thick white bread, very sweet grains, white sugar, very light bitter spices,… Very thick yeast, odd as usual Fantome brew imitating a very sweet Strong Belgian Ale, yet expensive! Oh you naughty ghost. hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a slightly green tint (a la Strange Ghost) and a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is smoky, bready and slightly lemony - nothing overblown, everything subtle. Medium-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is bready, lightly lemony and mildly bitter. Lingering, yeasty, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian! jercraigs (11095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
2014-08-15. Hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is weird and phenolic, strange esters. Flavour is rough, almost smokey, phenolic, roughly bitter in the finish. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. A bit strange, it fails to grab me today. Bottle at Campground Brewdown
