Pours pale yellow with a very small white head. The nose is big grapefruit, sweetbread and straw with some light lemon and barnyard funk. The taste is heavy sweet with light bitter and medium tart. Fantastic. The texture is soft and clean, the body is light and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1367) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Shared at the goblin pub. Pour is a transparent pale golden yellow with a thin creamy white head. The nose is mostly grapefuit with a light note of pepper in back and a fair bit of juicy orange citrus hop. The taste is very sweet and a little sugary. Sweet grapefruit with the bitterness in the finish. Light pepper and citrus behind with a fair bit of bitterness. Body is a bit syrupy and heavy, slightly grainy texture and a wet finish.

75 cl bottle last available for the season end-August, thanks Dany @ Fantôme. Couleur dorée paille avec un léger trouble, le tout devient plus foncé avec la lie. Arôme donne le ton, c’est du bon pamplemousse laissant un bouquet agréable de d’agrumes et fleurs d’oranges/pamplemousse. Retrouve aussi la levure qui fait la signature de Fantôme. En bouche, bière présentant une belle levure, le tout reste fruité avec ce profile d’agrumes et pamplemousse laissant une fine note acidulée, fruitée et fleurie avec une touche de grains. Cela reste agréable et relativement balancé entre une fine douceur et pointe d’acide de pamplemousse. Sur la fin, avec l’approche de la lie, je note une pointe de malt caramel qui renforce le palais et rajoute à cette douceur.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2011
75cl bottle at Goblin Pub, courtesy of Umberto. It pours a slightly hazy golden/orange colour with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is similar to grapefruit juice, tons of citric notes and a slight amount of funk. Taste is definitely awsome. It’s crisp and refreshing with notes of grapefruit and citrus, a nice funkiness and some acidity too. Bitterish finish and some spice to it. Good amount of carbonation and medium body. This is simply a perfect beer for happy hour and hot days. Definitely sessionable.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Shared at Goblin pub, great generosity from everyone there! Transparent gold, thin white ring for a head. Nose is light grapefruit, dust, wheat, and bit husky and meaty. Flavor has very strong grapefruit, light honey and lemon, very citric, low carbonation, but the balance remains, keeps it very drinkable.

Travlr (10000) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottles courtesy of Umberto, shared with MrChopin plus 2. Amazingly similar to carbonated grapefruit juice, and yet it retains its beery characteristics. An unexpectedly successful blend of flavors and character. Nice!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2011
750 ml bottle shared by Franco at Livingston Club! Thanks! Pours mostly clear at first, then slight sediment towards the bottom of course- carbonation is slight as there wasn’t much pop from the cork- just a slight fizz, but the acidity from the fruit makes up for this lack of CO2 in the mouthfeel. Slight head when poured hard. Aroma is straightforward- grapefruit zest, and juice pretty powerful actually- then some lemon zest, mineral slight fantome funk, toast, and light bread. Flavor is grassy, grapefruit juice, rose hips, hibiscus tea, lemon and herbs, then a funky mustiness, cracker, light stale bread, pepper, then a mostly dry mineral finish with a good clean acidity from the brett and grapefruit. Unique and fun to drink.

Maltzilla (38) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Thanks to Dstructo for this gem! Poured from a 750ml bottle into a large cognac snifter. The color of autumn sunshine . . . if you could only really bottle such a thing. LOL! Medium head which dissipated slowly into lacing at the top. Once the beer settles, the "sunshine" look of it kinda hazes over a bit with more of a white element. The nose? WOW! Think of your nostrils being pummeled with a mallet made of grapefruit. Intense citrus and definite grape fruit aroma is almost overwhelming, but in a very, very good way. Never had anything like it Taste: As I go for the 1st sip, I’m almost squinting my eyes, expecting to drink a form of carbonated grapefruit juice. And there was the magic of Fantome: not a grapefruit note to be tasted in the drink. Not a one that I could pick up at least. Great spicy taste, some citrus back notes, a bit of vanilla and oak as well, but no grapefruit. An incredible beer! Mouthfeel & Drinkability: This is listed as a witbier, but I felt it more as a saison . . . almost bordering on a sour. That said, the drikability is definitely up there with witbiers. This could easily be the 1st of many glasses for me. Smooth and very tasty.
