kraddel (5204) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2015
Pours clear blonde, no real head. Smell is sharp bitter soapy, lemon and hay. WTF ??? Taste is bitter, citrussy, sweet, hay and funky back. Very citrussy allover. slightly overcarbonated ( isnt fantome supposed to be flat ??? lol ) Really weird...You get what you aim for ?

zacgillbanks (3778) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A cloudy yellow coloured beer that pours with a foamy white head that rapidly disappears. It has strong bitter lemon, barnyard, toffee and floral citrus flavours followed by tart lime, oak and malt on the finish. Very nice considering the relatively low ABV.

larsga (6943) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2015
Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body with light carbonation. Lime and guarana aroma with mealy waxy notes. Certainly unusual! Sweet-acidic cucumber and guarana taste with mealy wheaty notes. Mid-to-thin body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish-acidic tropical fruit with sharp, astringent cucumber finish. Lingering wooden acid. That finish is just horrible. Undrinkable. (0.75l bottle, I forget where from.)

tom10101 (4528) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle (750 ml). Best before 2017. Split 3-ways with Adam and Heather.

Appearance: Hazy bright golden/orange with a medium bubbly white head and some lacing.

Aroma: Fantastic wild farmhouse aroma along with lemon, brettanomyces, light spiciness and floral/herbal presence.

Taste: A little less enticing than the aroma, but still an amazing farmhouse character along lemon tartness, honeyed sweetness, citrus/orange, light spicines, floral notes and mild peppery notes.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Floral / lavender aftertaste.

Overall: It’s quite debatable if this is a Witbier or not, but is sure is that it’s a fantastic concoction from Fantôme. Beautiful wild farmhouse character. Extreme drinkability and good depth. A beer I would love to have many bottles of next summer. Superb!

75CL - Best by end of 2017. Thanks Tommy for sharing this bottle. Split 3 ways at just below room-temp. Was stored cellar temp but is a recent release. Enjoyed in Hill Farmstead stemware.

A - Huge cork pop, I was afraid of a gusher but I caught it in time. 2 finger off-white head, is a murky golden orange, jus a little haze.

S - This is the single-greatest smelling Witbier I’ve ever had. Very yeasty, a light lemon tartness, some very interesting herbal like rosemary, lavender and peppercorn aroma. I also get a really great orange fruit juice. Orange Peel, honey, very floral.

T - This is a really great beer. I get this lovely tart grapefruit, wheat body that is totally overwhelmed by citrus, european hop bitterness. I get chamomile, lavender, lots of floral notes and the juiciest nectarine. This is really something special

M - Leaves a very tingly tongue. Great bottle conditioning with a filling mouthfeel with lots of carb. dry and effervescent.

O - Overall, there’s so much to say. It’s possibly the best witbier I’ve ever had, a great mix of so many flavors with this salad herbal that really literally makes my tongue tingle. Lovely fruitiness and the yeast is so well integrated. This might be out of this world in 5 years. seriously.

electrotype (488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Belle bière brumeuse comme je les aime mais avec une mousse qu’on aurait préféré plus tenace. Au nez le pamplemousse est omniprésent. Je n’arrive tout simplement pas à croire qu’il n’y en a pas eu d’ajouté, tel quel ou en concentré. L’odeur est très intrigeante cela dit... En plus du pamplemousse, ça sent les épices et un peu les médicaments. En bouche, c’est plutôt particulier. Sans être mauvais, je dois dire que je ne suis pas certain d’être en amour. Le pamplemousse et son acidité est bien présent ici aussi mais se mélangent également des notes que j’ai rarement rencontrées dans une autre bière. Somme toute, c’est par contre très raffraichissant et, une fois la surprise des saveurs peu connues passée, ça se laisse boire toute de même plutôt bien.

ClubGonzo (4998) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle sample @ Bergen International Whisky & Beer Festival 2015. Hazy light orange body, large white head. Nose is heavy grapefruit, lemon zest, mild stomach acid, sour lactic tones and hints of hay and dried lime. Taste is lemon zest, grapefruit juice, hay, sour lactic tones and hints of dry wood and straw. Medium body and carb. Tart and perhaps a bit too citric, but otherwise highly pleasant.

Fra Meny Carl Berner. Strågul-gyllen, lite skum, lett tåket. Frisk lukt av sitron og litt fjøs. Syrlig og tørr, med litt grapefruktaktig bitterhet. Sitron i smak. Frisk.

ABS (773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
(Last) Bottle from Meny Grim. Pours hazy orange, with a tiny white head. Looks more like a tropical juice. Lemon and artificial lemon nose. Also some brett-like aromas. Winegum. Thin to medium body. Juice-like texture. Soft to medium carbonation. Quite sour. Also some sweetness. Light bitterness. Lemonade, lemon and citrus, some light brett, hay and grapefruit flavour. A very weird beer. Reminds me more of a fruit beer, or even more of a lemonade or juice. Quite refreshing. I’m no big fan of brett-like flavours, but in this beer, these flavours are quite hidden and used in an interesting way.

goût pamplemousse avec une levure qui ressemble à une wit carbonation plutôt légère couleur jaune terne
