Fantôme Pissenlit Special

Formerly brewed at Brasserie Fantôme
Soy-Erezée, Belgium
12% Belgian Strong Ale | 28 Ratings | Special Release |
In the small village of Ohis, France, there's a young girl named Justine who needs our help. Justine is suffering from a rare, neurological condition known as leukodystrophy, which often leads to paralysis, and we are all trying to raise money for her desperately-needed operation.

Brasserie Fantôme's Dany Prignon, and his brewer friend Gilles Didier (who lives in Ohis), conceived the brilliant idea of brewing a special beer to be sold at auction to raise money for this operation. So they they created a special, strong version of Dany's rare and delicious Pissenlit saison, brewed with dandelions. This is a one-time, very limited edition -- only 20 bottles are available! Each bottle has been numbered and signed by Dany and Gilles, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the European Leukodystrophy Association, which is trying to help Justine.
