Fantôme Saison D’Erezée – Printemps

$9.99 for the 750 mL capped and corked bottle from Cheers, Carrollton, GA, USA.
Massive cascading streams of bubbles on opening that continues into the glass. Head slowly recedes to not much, and the lacing is scant. A dark orabge, chill hazed body that looks like a classic IPA.
Nice sweet, horseblanket funk in the nose, with plenty of grass notes.
Light mouthfeel is cut across by a definite acidity and a lingering, sweet and sour finish. A cleanliness about the beer which is contrasted by a sharp, grapefruit bitter ending. Coupled with the appearance and the color, the finish could almost get away as being a “sort of” IPA!
It’s the real deal in terms of the style, with a darker edge. Not as simple as some Saisons, this is a beer with more complex and complicated complexity!! A Saison for the mature drinker.
