Fantôme & Fermentery Form adorns the label. Capped and corked, the usual Fantome presentation.
Lively pour with a light, high, fine-bubbled head that is good effervescence but that fades pretty quickly. Body is a lightish brown, dark butterscotch heading toward orange affair. Cloudy. The body of the beer is not particularly attractive TBH.
Nose is mainly a relatively non-descript, yeasty bread note with a touch of something fruity.
Light tartness (very light), with similar almost undectable cocoa and chocolate notes. All of these elements are incredibly light. Earthy and herbal notes as one would expect from Fantôme, and some extremely light acidity. Lively in the mouth and beer feels light. This has depth of flavor, but in no way is this beer heavy or oppressive in terms of the tastes or other parts.
Finishes dry and has some bitterness, but never too much.
Plenty of Fantôme signature notes here, but in the end it’s a little non-descript in terms of any cocoa or hard spice notes. If anything a gentle introduction to Fantôme. There are far more complex and more difficult beers from Dany.
