    danyP, your last batch of regular saison that was imported to the U.S. was the best Fantome I've ever had, and definitely the best saison I've ever had. Thank you!

    I bought the bottle within the last month, so I'm assuming it was a 2015?

    Here are the notes I took while drinking this one:



    This is the best bottle of standard Fantome that I've ever had.

    Tons of citrus rind and strawberries. Little bit of that dusty basement, mushroom dirt, and funk that always comes with a pour of Tome but it's almost buried under a layer of fresh cut tangerines and strawberry juice.

    11/10

    No date anywhere on the label. Are the corks dated with the year?

    I am new to the site but this is a pretty cool thread; thanks to danyP for sharing brew notes & his philosophies on life. I very much enjoyed this from an interview link:

    "To craft brew is also to try to have a simple life—even if not always easy in this life, and in this world of money. I really try to keep my real friends, and have good time for them."

    This is a great way to look at our time on this planet, both for work and for life satisfaction. I have not had many Fantome beers, but someday maybe Texas will release their merde regulations & we will try more of his creative brews. Until then, I am happy to evangelize his beers even more due to his strengths as a good human.

    God bless the brewers & keep on rocking danyP!
