2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy gold with white head that reduces quickly but leaves attractive skim.
Aroma of wheat, green apples, spice with a vegetal note, like a farm kitchen before making pies on an early evening in late August. On the tongue, there’s more sharp apples with orange essential oil, while the expected cinnamon note turns sharper, peppery cardamom, but there’s also a light drizzle of honey.
With a spritzy creaminess, this is a refreshing but also filling swallow, a seemingly summer brew that is substantial enough to serve on a winter’s eve.
An ale as opposed to a cider or lambic, this doesn’t make for easy comparison with other fruited brews, not being sour or substantially sweet. It makes a good change-up to the regular line-up. While not as epic as Unibroue’s top beers, it’s just as thoughtfully made.
