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 (8218) - 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.

Spices popping like popcorn.

Papsoe (25079) - Lyserødovre, 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 (29950) - 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.

bierkoning (10645) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2004
Very pale color. Cloudy to the point of milky, no head. Honey, chalk, milk and lemon in the aroma. Something like green tea and lemon, sweetened with honey. Thin, even a bit watery , but very drinkable and refreshing. Something like diluted lemon juice with a dash of fruit yoghurt. Distant cousin of my all time favorite witbier: dubbel wit Neerijse. Love it!

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2004
Bottle - bottle conditioned Fizzy, white head, which disappears instantly. Yellow/white, cloudy body. Citric aroma. Heavily sour, lightly bitter initial flavour which faints out to a lightly sour finish. I thought I would never like a White Beer, but then I tasted this one.
