Bottled. Hazy yellowish orange colour with mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is very zesty along with citrus fruits, some farmyard as well as mild yeasty and Fantomeish notes. Flavour is very citrus fruity along with some quite tart and earthy notes. Rather pleasant and refreshing. Perfect beer for a hot summer day.

Thanks to Alex... pours a murky neon gold with a light watery head... nose smells like weeds and marijuana with lemons, intriguing... taste is light and refreshing but the flavors are weird, lemon and thyme (and other herbs)... super crushable

750 ml bottle shared by Max- and or Andy? Pours a slight hazed very light yellow golden with a fizzy head- fades a bit. Aroma is tart lemons, slight lime zest, warm wheat bread, toast, orange citrus hint, peppery phenolic spice. Flavor tastes like sprite a little bit- lemon lime flavorings and the CO2 prickly acidity as well- grassy, light toast and crackers, slight bubblegum and pepper phenol- slight quinine and tonic water, slightly tart in the finish, dry, clean, low to no funk- just a lemon-limed out clean witbeer! Chuggable.

750 ml bottle shared by Franco at Livingston Club! Thanks! Pours mostly clear at first, then slight sediment towards the bottom of course- carbonation is slight as there wasn’t much pop from the cork- just a slight fizz, but the acidity from the fruit makes up for this lack of CO2 in the mouthfeel. Slight head when poured hard. Aroma is straightforward- grapefruit zest, and juice pretty powerful actually- then some lemon zest, mineral slight fantome funk, toast, and light bread. Flavor is grassy, grapefruit juice, rose hips, hibiscus tea, lemon and herbs, then a funky mustiness, cracker, light stale bread, pepper, then a mostly dry mineral finish with a good clean acidity from the brett and grapefruit. Unique and fun to drink.

Bottle. Musty lemon, grape and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with nice head - strong effervescence initially. Slightly sweet lemon and light grape malt flavor with light dry/bitter finish. Medium body. A unique witbier with a Fantome twist.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty – wheaty and lightly sweetish, very fruity (citrus and orange), light spiciness (pepper). Body is light to medium, malty – wheaty lightly sweetish, very fruity and floral flavor, citrus, faint spiciness. Body is light to medium, malty – wheaty, light citrus. Finish is short to average, malty – wheaty, dryish, light citrus - bit flat and thin. Nice aroma but flavor is watery, aroma/flavor not in balance.

Really nice wheat beer with tropical fruits flavours on the nose and palate. Great complexity ripe apples and passion fruit!
A shame he can’t produce a lot! If you have the chance to find one, get it!

Hazed gold pour with a thin white head. Lots of grapefruit and citrus in the aroma, a little spice and herbal character. Tastes lightly tart with a lot of creaminess, a little spice, plenty more citrus. A standout wit.

Cloudy, diluted tang color, no head. In-your-face grapefruit pop to the nose. Flavor is more subdued, but still sings of grapefruit. Juicy and citrusy body. A one note wonder.
