kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle (London Drinker 06): Brett and spice dominate nose and flavour. Some sweet citric lemon in the flavour too. Yellow flat appearance. Enjoyable and moreish.

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2006
Bottle at London Drinker BF 2006. Cloudy gold colour with no head. Lemon aroma, very sour lemon in mouth. Quite harsh. Bit of nothing really but lots of lemon.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 31, 2005
From 750 ml bottle at the Montreal YeHa! 2005. A witbier from Fantôme? What kind of weird, musty, spicy oddity will it be, and how unlike a witbier? Let’s see: very, very light white-yellow color with a touch of a ring, cloudy...beautiful, fascinating nose, the strange plastics are overwhelmed by much more interesting notes of vanilla, almond, soft flowers and lemon-cookie-yeast....body very lemony and tart, vanilla appears again, and interestingly, fennel...a touch of orangepeel and more spice towards the finish....in the end, not exactly a typical wit but close enough that it deserve the appelation, and certainly another winner from this most unusual of farmhouses...

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2005
Strong coriander spiciness over lightly farmy, lemon-citrus aroma that is quite doughy. Opaque milky white body is topped by a low white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Coriander, lemon and doughy yeast character are apparent in the flavour. Full of fruits, this also features, tangy and tart, pineapple, grapefruit and orange notes. Some acidity in the finish while the wheat, though apparent is overwhelmed by the fruitiness. Medium light body with crisp, pointy effervescence. Bottle sampled at the Montreal YEHa’05.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2005 Very light milky yellow, cloudy. Generous white ring still seems a bit shy for Fantôme. Strangely defined wheat character plunging into a heavily phenolic atmosphere where dryish spiciness and low maltiness accentuate the apparent hop absence. Curacao orangey flavours take a lot of room. Much tarter than expected in mouth, citric and lactic acids added to the oldish wheaty acids, intense and hard to define. I love Fantôme, but I’ve the haunting feeling that I wouldn’t like this beer from most other breweries, so I can’t see myself giving it really high scores. Funky, grainy, mustardy and tart coconuts suggestions mingle in a maze of loose oddities. Light bodied, not very malty nor hoppy at all, perhaps floral and surprisingly unfocused carbonation for Fantôme. Very very atypical.

mds (2200) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
bottle. white-golden murky body with a small ring of head. aroma has some tart citrus, pear, and yeast along with various spices in the tradition of Fantôme. very interesting which isn’t surprising for them. Refreshing wheat-like character...funky and flavourful apple and lemon tartness. good stuff.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Hazy light golden ale with a thin white head. Spicey aroma, with noteds of thyme, and definite rubbery notes, problematic. Lemony blanche, like a lemon frapée, still quite funky in taste, and redeemed in that area. Enjoyed at YEHa!05 Christmas Party on Dec. 17th, 2005.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
Got a pair of these on my visit to the brewery, and since this one only clocks in at 4%ABV, I figured I better drink them sooner than later. What better occasion than the Montreal YEHa! gathering to pop one open?

Murky banana peel yellow, head consisting of a few spots here and there.
A citrusy, pineapple funk, with a side of passion fruits and mushrooms covered in dust. Wild stuff!
Tart and sweet like pink grapefruit juice, with a weird but good yeast flavor, with a tangerine/mandarin orange sweet finish. Enjoyable and refreshing, but cooky for a "Blanche", be it Belgian or otherwise. A bit thin, but still a classic Fantôme that I could drink all day long.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at TiggMTL’s Montreal Crew YEHa!05 Christmas Party on December 17, 2005. Yay! Always excited to try a new Fantome. Pours a cloudy amber body with a thin, white head. Nose is rubber and plastic. Yeasty, tart, lemony and farmhouse. This beer seemingly is off.
