Had a few bottles of this rare Fantome offering at Deep Ellum this past weekend.

Pours a hazy golden color with a good amount of head. This is a rarity for a Fantome offering.

Beer had a strong Orange peel smell too it.

Taste was outstanding. Crisp and light. Lots of floral and even more grapefruit in the taste.

Beer is carbonated well which gives and excellent mouthfeel.

At 4%ABV, I could drink four of these by myself. (429 characters)

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. (1,179 characters)
