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.

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.

Well I really love apples in the fall and this aroma was a clear memory of apple orchards here in southern Ontario. After that it all kind of fell apart though. Looked like an apple cider with a cider-like taste but with a funky finish and a lack of character.

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

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.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2004
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...

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Hazy golden ale with a thin white head. Sour apples in nose with wheaty malt. A bit wild. In mouth, sour apples and tart notes with the nice wheaty malt background, tarnished by traces of oxidation. Creamy mouthfeel and medoium bodied.

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.
