djd07 (8035) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle thanks to Ben. Pours a hazy hold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is leather couch, pepper, lemon. Medium mouth, rubber, lemon, funky, dry finish, good.

Renobob (1542) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 20, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Nez acidulé, qu'on retrouve au palais. Équilibre moyen. Décevante au finale. Levures sur la fin, légère âpreté.

freretoc (1480) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 15, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la brasserie. Couleur blonde très pâle avec peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence. Nez peu présent. Attaque acidulée ce qui lui donne un côté piquant en bouche. On ressent le bonbon et l’herbe avec un côté tannique.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - SEP 8, 2015
In bottiglia da 75cl. Colore giallo dorato, lievemente velata, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Aroma speziato, coriandolo, rosmarino, lievito, grano. Al palato corpo rotondo, pieno ma scorrevole con sentori di frutta gialla, frutta sciroppata seguito da speziato, e leggero amaro erbaceo finale.

Alengrin (4077) - BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2015
Strong Belgian ale apparently made for Belgium’s participation in the socker world cup of last year. From a 75 cl bottle with cork and crown cap. Medium thick, quickly opening, egg-white head over a hazy egg yolk-coloured blonde beer with vaguely greenish hue. The bottom of the bottle hides disgusting chunks of dead yeast and protein flakes, so the beer gets a murky appearance when the deposit is added. Bit weird aroma of strong gooseberry and starfruit, strong lemon grass and strong candied lemon (’sukade’ in Dutch), raw celery, peach blossom, lime juice, hay, nettle cheese, artisanal orange lemonade (strongly and strangely!), buttermilk, melon, pineapple, field flowers. Taste is sweet fruits in onset, estery, with a big deal of orange lemonade-like sweetness, refraining from becoming sugary though, so citric acid gets the space to play a big role here, with a notably refreshing effect as a result; carbonation is refined but pointy, almost as in a crémant, mouthfeel is supple and lean. Spicy yeastiness all around, bready malt sweetishness underneath as well as a (strong) suggestion of sourish wheat; the citric acidity remains for the rest of the palate, including the finish, where it gets the company of lingering fruity yeastiness, deep leafy and slightly peppery hop bitterness and a warmth of wodka-like alcohol, which manages to remain fairly gentle and therefore quite well hidden in a blonde 8% ABV beer. Another bizarre Fantôme concoction, I’d say a flavoured tripel with a certain saison-like influence, but apart from the meaningless ’spices’, the label does not reveal what has been added. It must have something to do with citrus fruits, that is for sure - or perhaps more likely, lemon grass... It took me a while to get used to the weird citrus perfume, but in terms of pure flavour, this is not bad at all, quite refreshing even for a beer this strong. Dany Prignon is somewhat infamous for brewing weird, usually spiced variations on the saison style which often divide opinions, but in this case, I believe he has a winner - contrary to the Belgian national soccer team last year. For that reason, I do find it a bit regrettable that this is only made for one particular occasion: it should change name and label and stay in assortment.

simont1 (524) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2015
Unclear and hazy orange juice looking beer, a bit fluorescence bright yellow.

Nose meets lemon oil, bread, funk, almost some banana, grapefruit, clove.

Taste is very very dimensional, a bit of lacto yeast, small amount of lemon/lime/grapefruit, salty and mineral in a way of mineral water, with a prominent nice Fantome funk & pineapple.

Mouthfeel is kind of fluffy, like a hefeweizen and quite full, and feels perfect for this.
