Bottle @ DHVL Gardenparty and Beerfestival 2009.
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]

yespr (31220) - 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!

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!

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.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2009
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.

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.

Cloudy pale beige beer, small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: pink grapefruit, and a lot of it. Actually, it’s the only thing I can smell. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lemony sour start, grapefruit, some spices, bitter. Aftertaste: more grapefruit and lemon.

75 cl. bottle @ brewery split by 3. Thx! Label just said Blanche but they confirmed that they were indeed with added Grapefruit. Fantôme-style. It was very nice of them to open the bar just for us despite being closed & Dany Prignon to even give us a short tour on top despite being busy. Pours hazy golden, white bubbles on top. Nose is heavy on grapefruit peel, lots of it, light zest, candy sugar. Taste is way less grapefruit than I hoped for, bit comparable to saison on tap, candy sugar, yeast, spices, touch sweet only light almost lacto note with some zest & light grapefruit peel in the back, bitter peel after the sweetish stuff. Candy sugar body. Easy to drink. No coriander at all. Pretty good, first new good Fantôme beer in a long time. The Saison was really good on tap @ brewery but isn’t it always? Good to have something good by Fantôme once again after a long string of very disappointing stuff.

MrChopin (3288) - 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.
