Also for ratings about Blanche Pamplemousse, as the regular Blanche sometimes has grapefruit, and sometimes doesn’t, and there’s no way you can tell from the label.

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2011
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.

laiti (8032) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
75 cl bottle @ home, no BBE info
Aroma has lots of stinging and very tart citron. Also some cascade-like hops and pineapple soda linger in the background. Very tart flavour with strong, stinging citron juice taste that overrides almost everything. Not nice, way too much citrus. Could work on summer day though.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
750 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of strong, stinging lemon, cactus and hops. Flavour of wheat, Cascade hops, lemon peel, pineapple and orange. Medium bodied, quite foamy mouthfeel and a very refreshing, citrusy and light bitter finish. Pretty strong on the citrusy side and it seems to run over the wheaty notes this should have. Truly a summery drink.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 750 ml bottle. Hazy yellow with a lasting big, creamy white head. Aroma is dominated by lemon, but also a bit spicy. Flavor is light wheat and pale malt, fruity, lemon, acidic and spicy. Medium to light body with a nice, long lasting sourish aftertaste. Very refreshing.

wow. I have never smelled a beer that tasted more like straight up rye bread and potent caraway seeds. sesame seeds as well. light herbal, rustic toasty lemongrass. taste different than flavor. taste is more typical belgian white, bright white grapes, just a hint of dusty caraway seeds. ultra unique, to be sure. dry. rustic. prominent rye character, with a pleasant white grape, herbal, lemongrass wheat taste. awesome beer. well crafted. one of a kind.

From the bottle at the De Heeren 20th Anniversary party during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a clear golden color with a big white head and great lacing. The nose brings a bit of very mild funk along with a nice bit of wheat and light grain. The flavor is mildly funky as well, though most of the flavor is coming from the wheat. Really nice dry, bitter finish. Not over the top, but nice and crisp. Exceptional body. Great brew and very different from other Fantome offerings.

Bottle, courtesy ofThorpe, thanks! Cloudy yellow, medium white head that settles quickly. Aroma of dusty lemons and apple skins. Taste is softly sour grapefruit. Nice.

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!
