j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 28, 2010
Bottle at the Rosso release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a milky yellow color. Smells like nature. Grassy and with a big sweet musky component. Really pretty. Soft hay and wheat on the body. Light soft bitterness to finish. This was very tasty.

This beer is friggin insanity. Absolutely pure grapefruit rind, pith, and flesh aroma matched with gnarly old gym socks funkiness. Intense aroma, but a light flavor that that evaporates from the palate rapidly. An absolutely unique beer.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 23, 2010
750ml bottle. Amazing nose, with notes of herbs, funky yeast, lemon citrus, coriander, sugary malt sweetness and a hint of straw. Really nice blend. Cloudy pale yellow in color, head fades rapidly. Flavor is gently tart, citric, sweet and spicy, herbal and very lightly bitter, mild yet complex, with notes of lemon and that ever-present Fantome yeast funk. Palate is light, nicely effervescent, very refreshing. Body is light-medium. Certainly one of my favorite examples of this style. Cheers to beastiefan2k!

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - FEB 17, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Pours a vibrant, slightly verdant yellow with a minuscule ring of white, small-bead foam. Nose is tart lemon-skin, honey-candy, soft flowers, and a restrained haunting of Fantome funk. Flavor reveals fresh lemon meringue pie, white sage, pepper, and honeycomb/beeswax. Absolutely stellar for such a ’simple’, ’light’, and ’straightforward’ brew. Carbonation is minimal, but certainly sparkles enough to lift the flavors for an outstanding, subtle, salty, and earthy finish. 4% seals the deal. Wow.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
750 ml capped and corked bottle generously shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a light hazed yellow golden with a one inch white head that falls really fast. Aroma is big and brightly citrus and acidic yeast along with an herbal element that is hard to define (Eugene said sage, maybe - it is earthy and bright). I get a hint of grass in the back, maybe coriander (power of suggestion with a Wit perhaps?). Taste is the really brightly citrus acidic elemnt of the nose, though its an acidic minerally citrus, not a fruit citrus taste. Following the initial shock, there is a great dry leathery taste, followed by the grass and straw of the nose. Palate is medium, oily a bit, with lighter carbonation. Aftertaste is the yeast and citric nature. As alway with Fantome interesting, weird and completely fun to try. Thanks for sharing Eugene.

Borresteijn (4639) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
75cl Bottle at a tasting. Hazy yellow colour, white head. Aroma of bitter grapefruits, some pineapple, very fruity. Flavour stays a bit behind, is light sweet, some honey, grapefruit, light bitter and dry finish. Light to medium bodied. Very refreshing.

Bottle 75cl. @ The Danish Summer Gathering Tasting, TSODRBSG09.
Clear medium yellow color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, moderate to heavy spicy, porse, peppery. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and spicy - porse - peppery bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090822]

Thanks be to Solan. This quickly became one of my favorite Fantome brews. Suprising. Tart and funky with more of everything I would want from a typical Belgian White, and then some. Delicious.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 Bottle, 75cl. Thx to some kind soul bringing it to the Danish summer gathering. It’s a clear, pale golden beer with a small, white head. Pale malts and citrus on the nose, with a fine touch of something reminiscent of myrica gale and pepper. The flavor has even more of it, balancing it with pale malts and some citrus notes. Pale malts and myrica gale in the finish. Medium body with a nice level of carbonation. Really clever use of ingredients. Rating: 7-3-7-3-15-3.5. 090822

Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, yellow beer topped by a big, creamy off-white head. Lemony, in an artificial way, aroma with lots of grapefruit. Tending towards bathroom soap. Sourish, citrusy flavor, with quite a lot of residual sweetness. Medium body, decent carbonation, quite bitter finish. A beer that starts off quite strange, is rather unusual, but also quite nice. 110826

Bottle. [thanks Søren & Feldthaus]
Pours muddy yellow with a fine, creamy, white, staying head. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, wheat, light brett and lovely citric. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light tartness, astringent lemon, fine sweet wheat and a lovely finishing dryness. Very good for a 4 % beer.
