3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, courtesy SoLan. This one had some age on it, probably at least 3-4 years. Pours a hazy, glowing, yellowish-golden color. A small, foamy, snow white head leaves a sudsy wash and random spots of lacing in its wake. The aroma shows some acidic lemon, white pepper, and coriander, all over a soft wheat grain malt base. Flavors are again quite tart and citric, very lemony, with the signature, slightly minty Fantôme yeast proving to be a nice compliment. The peppery spice and lemongrass offer a nice, zesty bright spot. Light bodied, crisp, and acidic, the moderate carbonation distributes the citrus notes well, but finishes slightly astringent. It’s not my favorite Fantôme by any means, but it is a unique, highly sessionable summertime brew.
