Bottle. Ephemere is light-colored and cloudy with a tall fizzy head. The head dissolved to a thin surface film within 10 minutes. The nose is spiced green apples with an herbal character as well. The flavor is a curious, tasty commingling of wheat malt, apples and spice. The Belgian yeast is unmistakeably pervasive. The malt is muted to let the intended flavors sing out. The beer is a tart apple, with an earthy spiciness that settles into the back of your cheeks. Light bodied and carbonated, this beer demands to be noticed like a June bug bouncing across your window at night looking for to get to the light inside. Ephemere Apple is pretty good. I am not a big fan of fruit beers. But this one is well made and focused.

Fuck no. This is dreadful. Pours a hazy dark gold with small white head. Aroma is of straw, wine, and big dank. Tastes of fake green apple, wheat, and bubblegum. Has a dry finish and medium body. Very Jolly Rancher like in a bad way.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a cloudy orange color with a big white head and lacing. The aroma is apples, banana, and yeast. The taste is green apples, Belgian yeast, and lemon. There?s a nice balance of sweet and sour. This is a pretty good summer beer.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 19 novembre 2015 (flute). Bière blonde pâle limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col blanc très épais et persistant (se régénère constamment). Très très effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de pommes vertes bien présente, de levure belge et de blé. Très douce, un peu sucrée, très peu amère. Saveur de savon d’abord, puis de pommes surettes mais pas marquée. Manque un peu de caractère. Un peu fade à boire, la saveur de pomme aurait pu être plus marquée.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with white head. Yeasty, green apple, slight straw aromas. Apple, fruity, yeasty flavors. Good mixture of belgian beer and fruit beer. Tasty.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
Hazy golden color with powerful activity. Thick extra foamy white sparkly 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs. Aromas and flavors of fruits and citrus, slightly grainy. Strong sugary taste of apple, melon, and lime with floral spices. Like a dessert witbier. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Soft and crisp finish ending with a sweet fresh fruity mouth feel. Overall an excellent fruit beer with great flavors and very refreshing. Very sweet but not excessively.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2016 Unibrow. Got this off a list of 100 beers to have before you die, and at age 71, I’m in more of a rush than most of you... Smells a lot like apples and yeast. Thin body, pretty dry, not unpleasant. Bottle poured into a Chimay chalice giving a good head that didn’t last and a cloudy hay colour. A bit of bubblegum and white bread, and naturally, the apples and yeast. Frankly, this is a real letdown after the build-up. I don’t like to be overwhelmed by my brews, but here’s the opposite, a yeasty, fruity nonentity with little to say for itself. Ephemeral indeed. Still, for what it is, it goes down easy. Glad I got only one (and done) bottle. I feel like adding something to perk this up! A votre santé.

Pours a light yellow straw color with a massive head that does quickly die down. Smell mainly of green apple, but with hints of wheat and yeast. Taste is like apple juice with a bit of spice in it (probably the coriander), mixed with a wheat beer. Believe they are using the Belgium strain of yeast. Mildly sweet. Crisp finish. Highly carbonated. Not usually the style I grab, but it wasn’t too bad. Probably would like it more in the summer instead of while it is snowing.

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Pour on tap at Beer Grotto, clear dark orange pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of apple, bread, biscuit, toast, hints of dark caramel, slight spice, esters, some slight fruity notes. Taste was a mix of caramel, toast, hints of toffee, slight apple notes with some green apple, hints of fruity esters, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter.
