Fantôme Pissenlit (ABV 8%) from Brasserie Fantôme is a Saison brewed with dandelions ("pissenlit" in French).

Every spring, Dany Prignon, the offbeat brewer at Fantôme, picks bushels of the dandelions that grow in the fields around the picturesque farmhouse brewery. The yellow flowers are removed and dried in the sun, then soaked in water for a few days. The thick, dark dandelion "tea" that results is the basis for the Pissenlit, which is made also from traditional barley malt and hops.

It resembles a classic Saison beer - a deep golden, spritzy brew, strong and very flavorful, with a good hop bite. You may have to strain to taste the dandelions, but you know they're in there! rating: 95 (out of 100) 25.4 oz corked and capped bottle.

Fantôme (Brasserie Fantôme) is a small brewery in Soy, Wallonia, Belgium. Founded in 1988 by Dany Prignon, it is known for its unique variations on the Saison style of farmhouse ale, often involving the use of herbs, spices, or fruit juice. Their complex, earthy, and herbal flavors have caused them to be sought out by connoisseurs the world over.

The name of the brewery stems from a legend of the nearby town of La Roche-en-Ardenne, which asserts that the ghost of the long-dead Countess Berthe de La Roche can still be seen walking amidst the ruins of the town's castle.
