Apparence: D?une couleur jaune pâle, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse légèrete d’une bonne durée. Très forte effervescence avec des bulles de petite taille. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de pommes (Granny Smith) avec un peu de céréales. Saveurs: Très frais, très léger en bouche. Définitivement rafraichissant, sans aucune surprise les notes de pommes sont bien présente en bouche sans prendre trop de place. D’une bonne durée avec une belle effervescence et aucun amertume. Fiche technique Style: Bière de fruits Format: 750 ml Taux d?alcool: 5,5%

Bottle from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have tart apples, sweet apples, yeast, light bready notes. Better than ciders I’ve had, but not something I would seek out again.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small, short lived, white head. Aroma is apples and yeast. Sweet flavour of artificial apple, yeast and citrus with a dry finish. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation.

~Grainy wheaty aroma with strong yellow and sour green apple aroma. Earthy hops. ~Pours a cloudy golden color with long lasting fluffy white head. ~Extrememely well balanced myriad of flavors, Corriander, grain, banana, apple, spice. ~Light fluffy body with high prickly CO2, lingering grainy apple finish. ~Very well crafted beer. Seems a lot of thought went into this one. I don’t care much for the apple, but do respect this beer. Refreshing and interesting.

12oz bottle. Pale golden color. Smells like sour green apples. A light taste of apples that ends bitter. Not bad, but not my favorite from them.

Awesome sour apple aroma with some spice and yeast. Taste is similar but a little scaled back. Nice crisp finish.

This is a review from notes just recently found. I poured some into a pint glass and some into a tulip. There really wasn’t much difference. The appearance was a clear golden yellow color with a fast rising carbonation seen rising to feed a one finger white foamy and bubbly head that ends up fizzling to nothing coating the top of the beer. Some light adequate light stringy lacing tries to cling to the glass. The smell has a nice amount of spiced apples with a nice allocation of peaches I smelled combined and coming through in a rustic sort of earthy way. The taste was sweet and yet still had a nice spiciness coming through to balance it just a tad. There is a slight apple-like aftertaste and a decent dried apple sort of finish. On the palate, it sat fairly light with a decent harsh like finish. It had a nice sessionable aspect to it. Overall, this is a nice fruit beer well worthy of having again and well worthy for a nice Summer’s evening watching the sunset.

Bottle. A hazy, light yellow pour with a thick white head and good lacing. Big green apple aromas immediately after being uncorked, followed by white wine notes and Unibroue yeast. Flavour is sweet apple, some malt and Unibroue yeast; some light candy-like sweetness and a very subtle tartness. Probably my favourite of the Ephemere beers so far, and a very nice fruit beer.

gildnerk (143) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Sweet apple and champagne aromas with some yeast. The nose is mostly acidic and sweet, with a rather robust body for a fruit beer. Abundant, fine carbonation. Little aftertaste.

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