oflodarz (48) - New York, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Interesting beer with nice apple aromas and flavors. corianted is mild but texture and mouth fell is slightly thick. The aroma was ripe green apple, some light caramel/malt sweetness, light spice, and some earthy, organic peat hints. The body was light, carbonation was spritzy, with some cidery tartness.

Poured from a chilled 750mL brown glass bottle into a wheat glass. Is it beer that tastes like apples or apples that taste like beer, is the question and it is both. Pretty darn refreshing, ’tis. A good, muddy golden hue to it. Another one of them beers best shared with beer friends, where maybe a descriptive discussion happens. And summer is but a few weeks away, too.

Pours a hazy apple juice yellow with a thick white head that leaves lacing. Nose is faint fruit. Nose is Body is light. Taste is a crisp faint fruit. Very slight bitterness. 12 oz bottle in a variety 6-pack.

Old rating. Bubbly fun. Crisp tart Apple, Belgian yeast, cider like, some white grape presence, highly carbonated, wife loves it. Pretty good.

bartzluke (216) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into shaker pint. Moderate gassy head quickly dissipated. Lots of carbonation, cloudy, pale golden. Nose is sweet apple-- cidery. A little spice. Mouthfeel is very and carbonated. Taste is a bit sweet, dry, and tart. Strong apple notes. Also pear, white grape, wheat and some spice. Maybe clove. Appropriate all around for a wit, but I?m not a big fan. Too thin and underdeveloped for me. Still, it’s refreshing and a different kind of fruit beer. Not as sweet as a cider or sour as a lambic.

Stoned99 (412) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle thanks Mario M. Aroma: apple, cereals, spices. App: hazy pale, medium white head. Taste and palate: medium body, high carbonation, fruity, light acidity finish. Overall: not exactly my style but well executed for the style. Quite refreshing

dhatton (137) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2015
Clear golden body with white head that dissipates rather quickly. Steady upward stream of bubbles. Aroma is apple at first, then funky yeast. Crisp, fruity taste; apple, pear, white grape and a bit of spiciness. Solid level of carbonation. Overall, refreshing change of pace. Thanks Leafs93.

jbuskirk (569) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 4, 2015
I had to laugh when I saw this beer had a whopping 10 IBU. I say that because Ephemere Apple can’t really be described as sweet. Hedonistic is more like it. The body is cloudy and light-colored. Aroma features bread, apple cider, banana, and a touch of clove. Taste is where things get odd. Bubble gum, gummy worm, banana, candy apple, light spice, and subtle sourness. While I wouldn’t choose to have something like this very often, it makes for one hell of a dessert beer.

HuskerTan (732) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. A- Apples, coriander, wheat, spices. A- Light orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Apples, coriander. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- This was not what I expected. I was thinking it was going to be more like a sour green apple lambic sort of beer. In fact, it was more like a Witbier with all the spice and then had a touch of apple cider thrown in. Not bad, but a pretty subtle brew.

wolffish (329) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
Bon produit dans l’ensemble... J’aime bien que le goût de pomme ne soit pas soutenu par une trop forte présence du sucre. C’est légèrement acidulé et bien fait.

3/22/15 (Bottle) - Light golden pour, generous pillow head, thick texture. Sweet apple aroma. Beer is very sweet, tastes OK, feel light and smooth. OK beer but I like others better from this brewer.
