MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, shared by me. Pours a light hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of yeast, mostly bread and sour touches. Flavor is medium sour, light peppery and bready. Sour apples in the aftertaste. Decent, but not impressive.

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light floral start, whisper of herb. Nice mild citric cut on the back end. Tiny pinch of black pepper. Light finish. Decent.

Bouteille 75cl de HopDuvel. Dorée trouble moyen sur un léger orangé, col blanc crémeux. Arôme offre cette signature typique de Fantôme, profile fruité citronné avec un rétro-nasal agrumes et légèrement épicé. Ma suspicion étant que Hill Farmstead à contribuer à l’ajout de qcq houblons américains. Palais reste encore ici proche des autres Fantôme. On aime ou on n’aime pas mais pas mal de bières semblent au final souvent se ressembler. Ici, le profile levure belge à la Fantôme est bien présent et ajoute un soupçon d’épice rappelant le coul de girofle. Pétillant est haut-moyen. Un houblonné fruité vient balancé un peu le tout en terme d’amertume avec un petit côté pamplemousse ponctué d’une pointe aigrelette. Bière correcte mais où la frontière de la collaboration reste trouble car l’ajout de HF est difficile à noter.

obguthr (3828) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Brett and lime, slightly horsey. Cloudy, amber, medium head. Tangy, lemon flavor. Lime finish. Very clean, well balanced. Fantome is really hot and cold for me, but this was solid.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ The Charlottesville Tasting. Thanks to Gene, the worst rater on RB. The pour’s deep gold with an eggshell white head. Nicely bright herbal nose. Smoked tea, tarragon and compost. Lemon poppyseed cake. A touch of soap. A shock of bright lemon flavor. Some acidic apple skin. Dirty unwashed herbs. Smoked oregano on the finish. Light and zippy. Refreshing, summery. Overall, a bit shaggy, but quite tasty. Nice stuff.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Corked bottle shared by Travlr at the April 5, 2014 Charlottesville tasting. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of toasted nutty notes, honey, spice, herbal notes, bright citrus. The taste is honey, citrus, herbal spice, almost thyme. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, lingering tartness. Nice.

Smalle (111) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2014
75cl bottle. Nose: spicy yeast, coriander, citrus, malt, a sour note (vomit, but not too obtrusive). Taste: spicy, malty, a bit sour. A hint of wheat. A " dirty" beer, but not unpleasant.
