Maltzilla (38) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Thanks to Dstructo for this gem! Poured from a 750ml bottle into a large cognac snifter. The color of autumn sunshine . . . if you could only really bottle such a thing. LOL! Medium head which dissipated slowly into lacing at the top. Once the beer settles, the "sunshine" look of it kinda hazes over a bit with more of a white element. The nose? WOW! Think of your nostrils being pummeled with a mallet made of grapefruit. Intense citrus and definite grape fruit aroma is almost overwhelming, but in a very, very good way. Never had anything like it Taste: As I go for the 1st sip, I’m almost squinting my eyes, expecting to drink a form of carbonated grapefruit juice. And there was the magic of Fantome: not a grapefruit note to be tasted in the drink. Not a one that I could pick up at least. Great spicy taste, some citrus back notes, a bit of vanilla and oak as well, but no grapefruit. An incredible beer! Mouthfeel & Drinkability: This is listed as a witbier, but I felt it more as a saison . . . almost bordering on a sour. That said, the drikability is definitely up there with witbiers. This could easily be the 1st of many glasses for me. Smooth and very tasty.

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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2009
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.

hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Bottle (dregs)… October ‘09 O-Town Throwdown!… Milky pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fruity, yeasty, lemon and lime bouquet. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with weak carbonation. Tangy, almost tart. Lightly sweet and bready. Piquant, mildly sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of SoLan!

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2009
yellow pour. Aroma is yeasty and full of white grapefruit peel/juice. Flavor is dry and citrusy. Grapefruit heaven. Funky and damn good. Really a nice beer.

faroeviking (11108) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 29, 2009
Botella. Hazy yellow. Spiced fruity yeasty aroma. Flavour is spiced and wheaty with yeast, fruits and a pleasant bitterness.

DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2016 [9/6/09] Bottle sample during a festival at De Heeren van Liedekercke in Denderleeuw. As "Fantôme Blanche Pamplemouse". Cloudy yellow. Aroma of lots of grapefruit, wheat, and a bit of oaky funk. Bitter grapefruit flavor with some hops, yeast, woody hints and more fruits. Medium-bodied.
