Fantôme
Extra Cherry

Part of the “Extra Sour Collection”. Lot 2 N 21, best bef end 2025. Capped and corked in the usual Fantôme fashion.

You never know what you will get with Fantôme except the fact that you always know that you never know what to expect!

Great looking clear golden pour with a lovely, well-retained white head and some nice lace. Looks sharp!

Nose offers a clean and lightly bready aroma. Some very, very light citrus.

Tastes are, well, … clean. No cherry, no funk, just a slightly bitter, slightly soapy affair that feels bright and well defined. Clean edges. It has an earthy hop note in the back end and as it warms, and with that warmth comes a little fruit, but again there is basically ZERO cherry for me, and also basically ZERO acidity. Some light medicinal, phenol band-aid notes, but again it’s very tempered and controlled.

Nice, lively carbonation that induces some gassy burps.

I have no idea what Dany did when making this beer, or how/why the words cherry and sour are associated with it, but I guess that’s part of the enduring mystery of Fantôme!
