Been holding on to this for a long while, close to 8 months, waiting for an evening with friends to share it with. Yeah for friends, as we poured this out and smelled it right off the bat. However, and first most, lets see how it looks as the color is a dull peachy orange with somewhat of a murky glow to it. Once the last of the bottle is emptied it becomes much more clouded and yellowed. Not much action in the form of foam though. Just a breeze of large bubbles loosely float about the top for a small breif minute. Minimal lace in a few light, thin strings and some dots.

Ahh, the aroma, Fantome's usual high ended citrusy funk with a twist of old white grapey sourness, spicy salts and peppered herbs, and one large lemony barnyard fart on top.

Taste is a firm yelp of deep, darkened sour lemony goodness backed by some funky touches of yeast, floral dried herbs, crunchy spices, and a slow sea salty pale malt stale cracker moody backing. Quite tangy and loud in the mouth with a big but well tamed sourness that wrangles the tongue into a quick pinch of soured, dulled lemon, weird other tangy citrusfied funk of old, over ripe stuff , just a drizzle of barnyardyness, and a buzz of yeasty fluffy dryness closes out the finish late.

The body is a bit low and under a mediumness and not as bold as it probably once was. Maybe due to age? Not sure, but it seemed to be a bit underwhelming when going with other Fantome goodies that have that zip of boldness, malts, and buzz of yeasty girth.

I liked that this seemed tamer and a bit more mellow then I'm sure it once was when fresh. A fun tangy, soured ale to be much like other Fantome brews.
