Dacrza (558) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Ommegang stem... OCCASION: celebrating the unseasonably warm afternoon of football, Christmas lights and fun with my sons... APPEARANCE: opaque, deep golden amber body with a soft, foamy thin white head that rings uniformly; lacing is cirrus cloud and ocean crest... AROMA: aromatic, fruity--sour apple and tart candy... PALATE: light, fizzy as cider; possesses some staying power in the mouth, but rather dry like champagne...TASTE: mildly tart and pleasantly crisp with little exchange of flavor in the exhale; an underlying hint of lager malts, but inevitably this is a clean basket of fruit with enough hops to hint at an ale...OVERALL: This has to be one of those handful of brews I have passed numerous times, always intending to try and never quite trying; its inclusion in the "Great Beers of Belgium" forced my hand, and I am pleased to find it a serviceable, light, cheaper version of Unibroue’s wonderful Ephemere (which announces its apple right up front); a single notch below the Estaminet pilsner in the sample, and two below the Rodenbach--but beer drinking isn’t really a competition, right?...

Dirty finish, not super pleasant. Light golden, pretty beer. Overall drinkable I guess but this is pretty low quality with some serious off flavors going on.

sjorsvdg (103) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2015
Een lekker bier, dat je als pils kunt drinken, maar wel een mooi palet heeft. Duidelijk hop en gist aanwezig, alsmede bloesem.

MarkoNm (913) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a nice white head. Ok retention. Malty aroma, not strong, some notes of yeast in there. Sweet and slightly fruity, a bit yeasty and bitter in the finish. A bit too malty but not really bad.

Bebum (358) - - JAN 10, 2015
Light amber color, tall lasting head, little lace. Light body but assertive flavor, smooth texture, bright mouthfeel, avg length. Bitter but a hint of sweet malt in the background, bitter and dry finish, Caramel, malt, hoppy. Refreshing, good if you like the style, not as balanced as I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joejames (231) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, quick head with some lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is rather sweet with just a hint of earthy bitterness. Light bodied, low carbonation with a thin mouth feel. Finishes sweet with notes a caramel, yeast, slight metallic and skunk. Drinkable but ordinary European ale.
