750 ml. bottle. Pours reddish orange with a nice white head. Aroma of fruit and grain. Taste is currants, wheat, citrus, yeast, and spice. I enjoyed this Fruit Beer.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
750ml Bottle in Montreal. slightly cloudy violet pour, quite pale with a weak white head, little retention. Thin carbonation. Aroma is black currants, raisins, yeast. Taste is dominated by black currant, tempered with mild yeast and grainy flavours. Cold, sweet, and very refreshing.

vadie (673) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
Violet avec une col moyenne violet. L’arôme de cassis et levure Unibroe. Le goût est d’abord cassis, ensuite un peu acidulé. Le goût des fruits n’est pas aussi présent que les autres bières Éphémère.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Aroma is blackcurrant in all of its understated glory. Hints of mulberry and black cherries. Pours ugly hazy purple with a good fizzy head. Taste is pretty much what I expected. A good cassis flavor without being overly fruity. This however makes this a very mild beer. Perfect for summer drinking but not too interesting.

Chudwick (2109) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 23, 2013
750ml - pours pinkish amber with plenty of lightly ping head. Nose is blackcurrant and dusty. flavor adds bread. Acidic. Sweet and a tad tart. Mild for a Unibroue. Tame for a fruit beer. Refreshing. It basically drinks itself. Metallic aftertaste.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2013
The nose is dominated here by black current and hints of funky yeast in the background. The black current found in the nose is really mellowed-out in the taste. Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting it to be; actually quite enjoyable. More of the essence of real black currents as opposed to a manufactured candy taste. This is not a complex beer; it pretty much only features black currants with hints of malt beneath. As fruity beers go, it’s quite nice.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
750ml bottle from Liberty Wines. Thanks Angela! Pours a cloudy orange with a tiny white head. Aroma: Hay, grapes, raspberries. Smells very sweet, slightly sour. Palate: medium bodied, fizzy, long, slightly dry finish. Taste: Not as sweet as it smells, hints of sourness, and a hint of bitterness.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours a hazy pink-salmon with a short-lived fizzy pink head. Smells of tart berries. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, moderately sour, tart - berries/currants dominate, a fruity yeastiness; very much a classic Unibroue with the yeast. A fruit beer in taste as well as in smell!

I like lambics but this does nothing for me. Really quite weak and I am looking at the size of the bottle I am thinking "why me?"

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
Clouded berry copper, pink tinged foamy white head settles slowly. Fruity berry fresh aroma. Taste is moderate berry fruity, not at all cloying, mild wheat, yeast and slightly floral. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean crisp and refreshing, finishes dry and lightly tart. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
