Éphémère is the third in a series of lively original-recipe beers that come and go before you know it. From season to season and year to year you’ll find a different Éphémère beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Golden pale color with light foaming and a little lacing. Aroma is full of apples at first, bitter green apples, but fades to soft hop smell with a light bretty aroma and a little citrus to boot (no pun). Flavor is slightly sulfuric and acidic but finishes rather smooth with a more or less "apple" feel to it.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Pours hazy pale yellow, almost a hint of green showing through. Small head and some lacing. Apples, cinnamon, and a touch of yeast or bread are present in the nose. Flavor is a bit different. The presence of apples is not so prominent here. More of the bread or yeast flavors stand out. A bit of a champagne like palate (full of bubbles,) and it finishes with a bite of alcohol at the end.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Aroma is nice and smells of apples. Appearance is also nice and really does look quite chapagnish in my champagne flute. Flavor is a bit of a let down, not bad tasty, just doesn't seem to register in a big way.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Champagne appearance with lower carbonation. Aroma is quite yeasty and spicy, definite apple tones in the nose. Apple (duh!) finish, sweet flavor.

Has a clouded light yellow/cider color with a good bit of carbonation and an apple smell. Taste is sweet, appley and a bit wheaty. Overall it is not a bad fruit beer, better than others.

After reading the label and hearing all the hype about this beer I thought Ephemere would be my epiphany of fruit beers. It didn't happen. Nice apple flavor, easy to drink, and a unique beer. It doesn't shatter my perception of fruit beers - a nice alternate to hoppy beers.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2011 Okay, it doesn’t have a great head but the bubbles are really pretty. Nice yeasty applely (but not sweet flavor). Makes wonderful tasting burps.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Big burst of green apple upon opening the bottle. Light, soft, and bubbly on the palate. Has that yeasty taste that we all know along with mild green apple. Good for something a little different.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Nice hazy yellow color, but with no head at all. The aroma was full of sour apples and barnyard tones. The flavor was more like an extremely mild geueze with a slight apple character. Spritzy feel.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Golden beer with a small fizzy head. Aroma is all apples and is quite delicious. The taste was quite refreshing, heavy on the apples and completely devoid of hops. My girlfriend proclaimed this to be her favorite Fall beer.
