Fantome Saison returns...

Order Fantome online now --

Fantome Saison....$12.99 / 750ml
Fruity, complex saison beer from the Ardennes forest from a tiny farmhouse brewery very hard to find even in Belgium.
8% alc. by volume, with a wonderfully musty and characterful aroma. “Absolutely gorgeous, complex summer refresher with enough interest to drink all year-round.” (The Beers of Wallonia). Both authors give this beer a perfect 10. We would not give it a 10 (even if we knew what that meant) but there are 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.

Fantome Dark White....$14.99 / 750ml

Cannot find too much info about this one, except that it was brewed in 2006 and was specially produced for auction to raise money for a very sick little French girl. Saison brewed with pepper and spices.
