Bottle. Not sure of the age. I assume the base beer is a wit. Poured a pale purple with long-lasting pink head. Good fruity currant smell. Tart berry flavors. Biscuity. Orange peel. Slightly soapy and astringent, but overall a very fine beer.

Don't like the aroma of this one. It has a bitter smell but not a very pleasant one. Taste: same bitterness... It doesn't get better. Had this one right after an "Éphémère aux cerises" and the "cerises" one was much better. I pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared June 26 at private tasting. Significant pop of cork. Pours raspberry color with big head and lace. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Aroma of raspberry, blueberry, rosewater. Flavors of old straw hops, lemon, lime, melons. Overall flavorful and refreshing with minimal malt and hops.

The beer pours great with a nice hazy pink color to it that passes through some light, has a nice thick pink head and okay lacing on the glass. The beer has a decent nose with a nice blend of black currant, orange, grapefruit, and corriander. The beer tastes decent with a nice mildly bitterness of the currants and with a mild orange and corriander follow through. The mouthfeel is okay as the beer is decently carbonated but doesnt leave much for taste around. Overall, I am glad to see this beer return and it didnt disappoint, not your typical "fruit" beer.

Liquide rose-orange avec une abondance de mousse blanche qui surgit de la bouteille. Fruits rouges au nez. Les fruits dominent en bouche, sans surprise, avec une petite finale acidulée qui rajoute un peu de complexité. Bière fruitée typique, bien faite dans le genre.

Steven Raichlen, le roi du BBQ, la suggérait pour une de ses recettes, donc, belle opportunité. Elle est rose saumon et voilée, coiffée d’une mousse blanche qui a une petite teinte rosée elle aussi. Ça sent le cassis à plein nez, sommes-nous chez Monna et ses filles? La levure et le poivre accompagnent le fruit. C’est acidulé en bouche, suret, et sa glisse sur le palais et la langue, avant de filer en douce sans laisser d’arrière-goût prédominant. Une texture plutôt aqueuse quoique bien rafraîchissante. Embouteillée 29 nov 2012. (721-030713)

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 01.07.2013, tap @ Rattle ’n Hum:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is sweet black currants, berry skin, sugar, soda powder. Taste is watery, berry skin, hay, grass, black currants, chalk. Medium bitterness, very thin body. Fair enough, but it could have been so much better.

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.
