3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of strong, stinging lemon, cactus and hops. Flavour of wheat, Cascade hops, lemon peel, pineapple and orange. Medium bodied, quite foamy mouthfeel and a very refreshing, citrusy and light bitter finish. Pretty strong on the citrusy side and it seems to run over the wheaty notes this should have. Truly a summery drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle at the De Heeren 20th Anniversary party during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes.
Served in a mini snifter.
Pours a clear golden color with a big white head and great lacing.
The nose brings a bit of very mild funk along with a nice bit of wheat and light grain. The flavor is mildly funky as well, though most of the flavor is coming from the wheat.
Really nice dry, bitter finish. Not over the top, but nice and crisp. Exceptional body.
Great brew and very different from other Fantome offerings.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 750 ml bottle. Hazy yellow with a lasting big, creamy white head. Aroma is dominated by lemon, but also a bit spicy. Flavor is light wheat and pale malt, fruity, lemon, acidic and spicy. Medium to light body with a nice, long lasting sourish aftertaste. Very refreshing.

Bottles courtesy of Umberto, shared with MrChopin plus 2. Amazingly similar to carbonated grapefruit juice, and yet it retains its beery characteristics. An unexpectedly successful blend of flavors and character. Nice!

75 cl bottle @ home, no BBE info
Aroma has lots of stinging and very tart citron. Also some cascade-like hops and pineapple soda linger in the background. Very tart flavour with strong, stinging citron juice taste that overrides almost everything. Not nice, way too much citrus. Could work on summer day though.

wow. I have never smelled a beer that tasted more like straight up rye bread and potent caraway seeds. sesame seeds as well. light herbal, rustic toasty lemongrass. taste different than flavor. taste is more typical belgian white, bright white grapes, just a hint of dusty caraway seeds. ultra unique, to be sure. dry. rustic. prominent rye character, with a pleasant white grape, herbal, lemongrass wheat taste. awesome beer. well crafted. one of a kind.

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.
