Brasserie Fantome Fantome Saison
What the brewers say
Fruity, sweet, golden, 8% alcohol, a best of!
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Tropical fruit aromas of Sweet-Tarts, Smarties, or Sour Patch Kids candy. Faint malt sweetness, honey, and a touch of alcohol. Very different. One of the most unique aromas of any saison.”
Flavor: “Very juicy, fruity flavor of lemon, orange, and tangerine. Some spicy notes but dominated by sweetness. Moderate malt with mango, passion fruit, and a bit of pineapple. Finishes dry and crisp with some lingering hop bitterness.”
Overall: “A very refreshing, juicy, fruity saison. This is candy for adults! Love the fruity sweetness balanced with just enough hops so as not to be cloying. Very tropical! Out of style in a wonderful way.”
