pours hazy/cloudy pale golden with a frothy and creamy eggshell white head, good retention and lacing. very fragrant grapefruit aroma and taste - lemony funk on the tongue, rustic graininess, funked up yeast profile - spicy, bretty and fruity-plenty; very floral too, pepper. lively carbonation, light body - lean yet never watery; gently lemony tart, dry and rustic grassy-citrusy finish - superb mouthfeel. high drinkability. amongst the best fruit non-fruit lambic beer i’ve had so far. excellent stuff!

mathieuc (2631) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head and a high effervescence that keeps it alive for the whole session. Head leaves a good lacing. Nose is of genuine grapefruit and light wood. Taste is lightly acidic and of pretty impressive grapefruits again. Some wheat flour. Body is medium, carbonation high. Incredibly refreshing. Overall a hit by Fantome, I need more!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 3, 2013
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

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!

teorn88 (5142) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

hawthorne00 (3165) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle, BB end 2017. Label just says Blanche but it must be this one [edit: ABV matches too]. Hazy gold with a coat of white head. Intensely grapefruity aroma - juice not zest - some hay, flowers. Light bodied, lowish carbonation. A slight creaminess just about stops it being watery. Lots of grapefruit again, some soft grainy sweetness, lavender (in a little burst), apricot and white pepper. Moderately bitter, a little astringent, stemmy and tingly at the end. Deeply refreshing.
