A great summertime beer. The hint of apple is gives a great aroma and light crispness without being overpowering.

Nose is ridiculous, sour green apple. Taste of apple, malt, cider well balanced, not overly sweet

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 7/17/2015. Pours fairly hazy pale gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, wheat, and yeast ester flavors; with very nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice fruit flavored witbier style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of apple juice, malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Man. Not sure what to think about this. Cough syrup? Huge sweet and medicine tasting. Just hate this style.

EtTuCthulhu (900) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2014
This beer pours an opaque golden color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends apple juice, white grapes, and yeast, and the taste is a refreshing blend of a mild sweetness and a slight sourness; furthermore, the palate is very complementary due to the lively carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly sweet finish.

chucklemation (322) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Has a white-yellow color, like white grape juice, and a very healthy white foam. Smells like sour fruit, not unpleasant but not great. The flavor is more complex. The apple is most dominant but isn’t overpowering. The beer is more dry than sweet, even a little tart. Has a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a little lacking in some regards but the beer is still pretty enjoyable.

This is a great refreshing fruity beer! It was very crisp and clean. Apple is definitely present. Overall great beer.

jbrana (352) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Tastes like smarties, sweet and low, apples, and pale malt. Not sure if this bottle is past it's prime, or if that's just how it tastes.

TizzleJizzle (537) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured a murky golden color with a white top, no lacing. Taste of candied apples, yeast, tart, slightly sour finish. High carbonation, crazy thin body.

Is really hard brew a beer like Apple Ephemere. Taste fresh green apples in a wit beer...In Bottles!
