Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have berries, cherry, grape notes, caramel, with the typical Unibroue yeast character. Decent fruit beer.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin ring of white head. Awesome big cherry, strawberry, red grape aroma. So fruity. Yet, so not sugary syrupy sweet, like you’d think such a thing would be. Medium body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. Some apple. Love the aroma on this. Cranberry. Moderate sweet taste, but it has a dry finish. It’s not syrupy, slick, or sugary like you’d expect a fruit-forward beer to be. Definitely a more dry finish. Medium body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Very impressive, stand-out fruit beer. I love the Ephemere series so far, each one has exceeded expectations. I would go out of my way to try each one available.

Aroma is of black currant, coriander, a bit of sourness, and a bit of orange. The color is a pinkish orange with the head being light pink. It has quick a lively head. Lacing is not very noticeable. The initial taste is sweet with a dry finish. The is an orange peel bit with the overall taste as well.

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

DenverLogan (827) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
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.

merc7186 (2256) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
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.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
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.

Poured from 750mL bottle. Clear salmon pink colour with white head with a slightly pink hue. Black currant aroma. Black currant with some light yeast with medium body. Very nice texture, not sweet. Easy drinking.
