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 (4549) - 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.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thick frothy white head. I agree with Glouglouburp, the aroma is very funky, it feels like I’m sticking my nose in manure, on a hot day. There’s also a nice yeasty, fruity, spicy presence, but it’s quickly overwhelmed by the dominating funk. The flavor has more balance, it feels less like manure, more like farmhouse terroir you find in saisons, there’s also lemon and spices, there’s pleasant dryness in the finish. The body is light and creamy while the carbonation is moderate.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
The Lure:
Fiery ginger and coriander leap out from the hazy, big-bubbled concoction. Oranges attract, this smells like a classic, well-made witbier.

The Festivities:
An airy, thin body benefits from its portly bubbles to bulk itself up. Lime-like tartness is in the limelight, as bananas and coriander diversify the profile. Gonzo is right in saying that this approaches a non-infected Breughel Kamour Double, lots of carbonation and watery passages for drinkability, except this one’s spiciness is expertly presented, making the Breughel comparison stop at body notions only.

Transcendence:
Spices popping like popcorn.

Robe blonde très pâle surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes de framboises, d’épices, de levures et de citron. Saveurs de citron, de baies, de levures et d’épices.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a flat, white head. Lightly tart nose. Very light-bodied and watery with citrusy notes. Rustic notes of horse sweat....Sour and unpleasant. It’s really hit or miss with Fantome - this definitely was a miss. 041105

Ungstrup (29485) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2005
An unclear yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma contains notes of wood, cork, and citrus. While the flavor contains notes of wheat and citrus - especially lime - as well as hints of dust and cork, while the body is thin.
