Fantôme Hiver Saison
So, this is Fantôme’s “winter” saison, but I’ve been having a difficult time finding Fantôme beers, so I’m hailing it the best saison I’ve had in a summer filled with saisons. This has lots of carbonation and lemony tartness up front, a bit of pepper, some malt mellowing that out, and a dry finish. On the whole, it’s a really balanced and drinkable brew even though there’s a lot going on in each sip. I’m not sure what’s wintery about it, except that an 8% ABV glass is sure to put roses in your cheeks.
