Metalchopz (2295) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated April 2005. I love apple beer ! This one pours a cloudy yellow-white with amber highlights. The white head is fizzy, with good retention. The nose is, of course apples, but mixed in with the scent of a witbier. The base of this beer seems to be a witbier. The taste is surprisingly not much of apples, mostly a white beer. Apple taste are felt in the burp section. Carbonation is pretty crazy and wild. Must be a great summer brew. Will try it next on a hot sunny day. Recommended if you like fruit beers that are more on the beer side, then the fruit side.

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2009
Acheté au métro en format de 660ml et dégusté dans un verre de blanche de chambly. Apparence jaune ambré au reflet orangé avec peu d’effervescence et aucune mousse. Odeur de pomme fraiche, rhubarbe et kiwi avec une touche de canelle et de levure. Goût de pomme verte et levure avec une bonne gazéfication et c’est à peu près tout. Absolument rien de wow, mais quand même une bière acceptable lors des soiré chaude d’été...

Gorbalev (2926) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007
Bottle (650ml), thanks Hogtown Harry. Dark cloudy yellow, thick small white head, decent lacing. Strong green apple aroma, some wheat like notes as well - decent. Taste - bitter apple, not much else. Apple doesn’t taste too artificial actually - but it is not as strong as the aroma. Quenching when cold. Not bad.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
Drank in a tulip. Cloudy golden poor, Very apple juice like with a thin white head. Aromas of intensely red apples (McIntosh), rhubarb, kiwi, a hint of cinnamon you basically have president choice grade apple pie. The acid side of the apple and the sourness of the rhubarb hits you right off the bat. Heavy effervest feel to the gums... not bad. To bad this beer is not a little more sweeter... This could be an even better brew. Added citrus like flavors to it. Dry bitter start with a lite sweet lasting finish. Predominant effervescence. Good balance between the sweet and sour.

blankboy (6074) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & GregClow -- my bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty-looking yellow with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of wheat, green apples, yeast and spices. Flavour of sweet malt and green apples -- it works relatively well, it’s not bad. Light to medium bodied. Nothing special, just O.K.

GregClow (2893) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & blankboy - courtesy of blankboy. Hazy light golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet apple candy and grainy malt. Crisp body. Flavour is simple but pleasant - sweet apple, mild yeast and wheat. Not bad.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle (660ml). Shared with blankboy and GregClow, blankboy’s bottle. Poured cloudy pale yellow, small frothy white head. Light aroma, slightly oxidized apple cores, apple seeds, hint of yeast and cardboard. Taste is simple - apples, little bit of white wine - just okay. Light, acidic body, slight caramel aftertaste - not too bad, boring, a little papery.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Pours a fizzy light golden body with a short-lasting white head. Aroma is pretty boring- faint apple candy and some grain. Sparkling palate with some bland apple flavour. No depth or anything here, just a plain apple beer that is mildly refreshing.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Not too shabby. Looks very nice with a rich foamy head, cloudiness and lacing, and the apple flavour is not too pronounced or sweet. The backbone reminds one of a Belgian wit a little. Don’t see the need for such a huge bottle, mind you.

Elle goût plus les pommes que l’Éphémère aux pommes et elle un peu plus délissieuse que l’autre.
