3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle. It poured a straw gold color with a big frothy white head that quickly dissipated to a nice rention covering. Green apple aroma with some sense of artificial candy flavoring. It has a dry finish but not sweet like cider.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not normally a fan of friut beers but this was pretty darn good. First off, the aroma was of green apples, so much so it reminded of apple jolly ranchers. Although it was nice it borders on artificial. The body was a deep, murky hazy yellow, with a light brown tinge, a mid sized head with plenty of carbonation. The flavors of wheat and hints of spice and coriander, the apples show up in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little light but it was well balanced. Originally rated on 11/11/08.

341ml bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with half of finger lasting head. No lacing. Aromas of apples, honey, and a hint of bananas. High carbonation takes over in the beginning which leads to a fruity finish. Mildly spicy aftertaste. Recommended.

Pours darker than your standard white ale. Aroma of apple pie, bread, clove. Flavour is a nice balance of beautiful soft wheat beer flavours with a bite of apple. Nice quaffer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant apple aroma. The body is a hazy yellow amber with soda bubbly head that thins quickly. Has sweet tart apple taste with a hint of maltiness. Has a apple cider like dry finish. As close to an apple beer without being a cider as I’ve tasted.

Part of the Unibroue Semoliers Pack
Smells very potently of apples over a Belgian Dubble.
Pours a light gold colour. Head disappears quickly.
Taste is that of a Belgian Dubble, with a hint of apple, Not overpowering.
Good amount of carbonation. No aftertaste.
I had left this beer for last as I wasn’t too sure on an apple beer. But I was pleasantly surprised. I wouldn’t buy a 6 pack, but if it was park of the Mixer pack again, I wouldn’t turn it down.
