Been drinking this for years...nothing like dandelions in your beer...helps you pee! Mostly clear gold...lingering head. Big aroma of funk and light berries. Rich flavor, some malt, funk, bread, bland fruit, tea & herbs. While some funkiness and not super smooth, tasty and fun!

Bottle courtesy bulletrain76. Pours a peach-apricot color with no head, sort of odd. Aroma is also sweet and peachy with some tartness, lemons, marmalade. Flavor is like when you get down to the pit of a peach and you're trying to wrest every last peach fiber out of the stone. Woody, earthy, fruity, enigmatic. Another good one from Fantome.

750ml green corked and capped bottle - No date but this comes from the most recent batch, poured into a tulip...

Pours a cloudy light orange, dark yellow with an abundance of fluffy white head which sticks around for a while, lots of lacing is left behind...

Smell is pretty subtle, earthy and dry with slight Fantome funk. A bit of fruity sweetness can be detected after a few sniffs, but this one leans mostly towards the grainy/earthy aromas, actually smells much like a Witbier...

Tastes much like a Witbier as well, subtle sweet and citrus fruits up front with lots of earthy, dry bitterness in the finish. Grassy with just hints of some funk.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, has a smooth and coating feel, dry bitter finish.

Bottle. Thanks to Armin. Pours a clear golden color with a collared white head. Sweet aroma of white grape, some florals, some spice, and honey. Semi tart grape start with lemon, floral, and some minimal spice like notes. Ends dyly. Pretty wine like. Overall, I was surprised by this and really enjoyed it. I haven’t been the biggest Fantome fan but this beer is perfect on a hot summer day.
