this was my favourite out the four ephemeres. hazy pale yelow, white head. aroma of yeast and spice with a whiff of fresh apple crisp. some doughy malt, yeast and you can taste whole apples, cores and all in this beer. well done.

Great big white head on this one. The smell was mediocre, but the taste was amazing. Another winner from Unibroue.

Highly effervescent,cloudy straw yellow with a ful size white foamy head which dissipated to a semi-thick layer of foam. Aroma is yeasty, tart and green apples. Very crisp with flavors of apples, wheat and coriander. This is a nice refreshing brew that I thouroghly enjoyed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great hazy yellow colour with a very frothy white head. Smells of sugar, green apples and yeast are very evident. A very thin beer with subtle tastes of green apple, the freshness of coriander seed and a tiny bit of the orange peel (curacao). The aftertaste is a bit drying and light. Definately a good summer beer. Not to be so stringent, but I think this beer should be classified as: Printemps (SPRING-Not winter) 2003. This is a rating for this years' version of this..not last years. However, I think that everyone is rating this one as 2003's beer, so I will as well. I bought this twelve ounce bottle from Dean & Deluca in Washington (Georgetown).

Large white head, very delicate, with a light amber body. Body is also quite light and airy, with substantial fluffy mouthfeel. Apple is light, slightly watered down sour green apple Jolly Rancher flavor. Some yeasty notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 My Favorite Éphémère. The yellow beverage looks well carbonated and is hella generous with head. The taste of apple is the first you come by, swiftly supported by the sour aspect of this beer that makes it truly refreshing. A light bitterness accompanies the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stong bitter/sweet apple aroma as soon as the bottle is opened. Cloudy straw gold with huge head and constant champagney bubbles. The beer itself smells of apples and of belgian yeast or lambic beneath it. Flavor is of slightly fermented granny smith apple juice with some yeasty bitterness in the finish. Tasty, but not overwhelmingly so.

(750ml bottle): Cloudy yellow with big off-white froth. Aroma is tart apple. Taste is watery green apple, mild tartness. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was unimpressed by this one.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. brown bottle.Corked & caged bottle. Expires 05-01-05. Highly carbonated, almost too much so. Cork almost shot out of my hand when opening it. Poured out a greenish- yellow wheat color. Has a huge head that fades slowly to a great lacing on the sides of the glass. Aromas of apple Jolly Ranchers, Granny Smith apples, and yeasty bread. Sourdough, maybe. Aromas are sweet, joy-inducing, almost overpowering. Subdued apple taste to it. Yeasty middle, with a sweet, apple finish to it. My first Unibroue, and not a let down, either. You owe it to yourself to try this beer at least once.
