MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2009
My Bottom Line:
An explosion of citrus fruit peels slowly leads to spicy herbs and bitter hops in this foamy and idiosyncratic Fantôme brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam stays atop the cloudy blond.
-The citrusy zest perfume and flavors might be too much for an instant, but the segue to herbal leafiness is impressively harmonious.
-This was quite drinkable, leading me to believe that this ale was below the advertised 8% abv.
-The citrus character is redolent of grapefruit zest, tangerines and yuzu lemons.
