3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice effervescent and cloudy body. Its head unfortunately lacks some density and fades quickly. Good and fresh apple aroma with some very subtle hints of coriander. The taste is watery and sort of disappointing. It definitely lacks some punch (especially compared to Éphémère aux pommes...) and apples are a way less present than it is in the aroma. Very discreet palate. Some work is to be done on that one: I felt like drinking east-german Apfelschörl cutted with water, which must be very refreshing on a warm summer afternoon...

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

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber in colour. Aroma of apples with some sugar. The flavour had some apples but lacking in something. Thin body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a weak bitterness, fairly quick. Rather disappointing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
hazy yellow, white head. coriander, yeast fresh apples and wheaty malt on the nose. very spritzy mouthfeel, to the point where it interferes with the flavour. as the beer warms some banana-y flavours come out. finshes very quickly due to excess carbo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
