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.

Unclear light to medium yellow color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate heavy grapefruity, moderate malty, wheat, moderate yesty. Flavor is moderate to light light light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, fruity citrus, wheaty, grapefruit bitter, and a very dry dry late finish. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20090906]

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/6/09] Bottle sample during a festival at De Heeren van Liedekercke in Denderleeuw. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of lots of grapefruit, wheat, and a bit of oaky funk. Bitter grapefruit flavor with some hops, yeast, woody hints and more fruits. Medium-bodied.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
75 cL bottle at DHVL Gardenparty and Beerfestival 2009. Pours hazy deep yellow to orange with a diminished white head. Aroma is of solid grapefruit and some berry like note. Grapefruit citric, dry and mellow wheaty flavour and mouthfeel. Citric and dry bitter flavoured into a lingering finish, dry. An interesting twist on the blanche beer!
