Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with about 7 bubbles of carbonation, so basically flat. It smells exactly like grapefruit juice! Citric with a slightly bitterness to it. The flatness kills this for me. There is absolutely zero carb and I think this one woudl really benefit from it. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is grapefruit and slight peach and some lemon.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small white head that turns into a lacing quick, on top of a hazy yellow beer.
Smell herbs, fruit, lemon, citron, grapefruit, cactus, spices, sharp tint of yellow fruit and spice, very exceptional but lovely smell.
Taste is a nice but pretty short but very fine mix of fruits, lemon, grapefruit, hops, citrus, yeast, light bitter, spices, like the smell the taste is pretty exceptional too.
Aftertaste is a bit weaker and lighter than the actual taste, but still pretty ok, a soft fruity spicy hoppy light bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to full body and a light watery texture.

Shared at Goblin pub, great generosity from everyone there! Transparent gold, thin white ring for a head. Nose is light grapefruit, dust, wheat, and bit husky and meaty. Flavor has very strong grapefruit, light honey and lemon, very citric, low carbonation, but the balance remains, keeps it very drinkable.

Hazy orange color, small steady head. Very intensive orange, apple, formic acid, exotic fruity and spicey aroma. Very unique aroma! Light body. Acidic, citrus, orange, spices ... some Fantome house flavors. Very fruity-tart finish. Almost like very fruity lambic, great beer.

Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is very zesty along with citrus fruits, some farmyard as well as mild yeasty and Fantomeish notes. Flavour is very citrus fruity along with some quite tart and earthy notes. Rather pleasant and refreshing. Perfect beer for a hot summer day.

Thanks to Alex... pours a murky neon gold with a light watery head... nose smells like weeds and marijuana with lemons, intriguing... taste is light and refreshing but the flavors are weird, lemon and thyme (and other herbs)... super crushable

750 ml bottle shared by Max- and or Andy? Pours a slight hazed very light yellow golden with a fizzy head- fades a bit. Aroma is tart lemons, slight lime zest, warm wheat bread, toast, orange citrus hint, peppery phenolic spice. Flavor tastes like sprite a little bit- lemon lime flavorings and the CO2 prickly acidity as well- grassy, light toast and crackers, slight bubblegum and pepper phenol- slight quinine and tonic water, slightly tart in the finish, dry, clean, low to no funk- just a lemon-limed out clean witbeer! Chuggable.

750 ml bottle shared by Franco at Livingston Club! Thanks! Pours mostly clear at first, then slight sediment towards the bottom of course- carbonation is slight as there wasn’t much pop from the cork- just a slight fizz, but the acidity from the fruit makes up for this lack of CO2 in the mouthfeel. Slight head when poured hard. Aroma is straightforward- grapefruit zest, and juice pretty powerful actually- then some lemon zest, mineral slight fantome funk, toast, and light bread. Flavor is grassy, grapefruit juice, rose hips, hibiscus tea, lemon and herbs, then a funky mustiness, cracker, light stale bread, pepper, then a mostly dry mineral finish with a good clean acidity from the brett and grapefruit. Unique and fun to drink.

Bottle. Musty lemon, grape and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with nice head - strong effervescence initially. Slightly sweet lemon and light grape malt flavor with light dry/bitter finish. Medium body. A unique witbier with a Fantome twist.
