Bouteille de 750 ml. 4,98 chez IGA. Couleur pêche-rosée avec mousse épaisse mais très peu dense de couleur blanche rosée. La mousse mérite d’être goûtée. Elle laisse ensuite une mince col. La bière est brumeuse ce qui l’a rend vraiment attrayante et prometteuse. Arôme de cerise très prononcé et un peu de malt. C’est au goût que ça se gâte. Beaucoup trop chimique comme goût de cerise. On a plus l’impression de manger du bonbon que de manger des cerises. D’autant plus que ce goût de chimique reste en arrière-goût jusqu’à la prochaine gorgée. Léger goût de blé également. Effervescence moyenne, palais léger. J’ai jamais été un fan des Éphémères d’Unibroue et celle aux cerises n’aide certainement pas la cause.

Hidden_Pooch (286) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Was expecting more from Unibroue, but what can you do. Poured a hazy pink amber, with a fast dissipating head. Aroma was dominated my cherries, with a little bit of wheat. Tasted of cherries, grass, and wheat. The mouth feel was of flat watery soda with a little tartness to it. No need.

Pretty, thin, pretty thin. A cloudy pinkish-amber with a quick-to-cheese-it head of white. Tart cherry, wheat and greek yoghurt on the nose. Refreshingly light sourness for a summer day that ends ends with a sweet cherry finish. Although this tastes fairly decent I would not make a regular habit of drinking these, I am not a huge fan of the thin body.

Pours pink with a fizzy white top that reduces to a ring. Aroma is tart cherry and sweet grains. Taste is light grains with cherry sweetness and light tart.

Light cherry notes, that present in the aroma and flavor. It’s a summer beverage, light and refreshing.

mjakopa (217) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours an almost reddish orange with some head that dissipates. Aroma is strong cherry but not too sweet. Other aromas may be masked by the cherry and are not prominent. Taste is more cherry, carbonized and eventually alcoholic backing. Very similar to a belgian Kriek, but not at all sweet, which makes it very drinkable and enjoyable. One for the desserts.

RyanE (143) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Pours reddish orange. Notes of cherry and some dry grass. Nice balance, more fresh cherries. Not very tart with dry finish. Not typically a fan of fruit beers but this one is solid.

Transparent to translucent orange amber colour with white head. Strong smell of cherry and sugar. Tastes of a light beer and cherry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (163) - CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a clear orangish pink with three fingers of fluffy faintly pink head, gradually compacting to a short dense cap and no lacing. Nose is predominantly cherry, very faint sour funk and perhaps a hint of malt. Taste is much less intense than suggested by the nose, cherry flavour reminiscent of cough syrup, but with low sweetness, slight yeast and pepper. Mouth feel is light-bodied, with persistent effervescent carbonation. Not very exciting. The sweetness level is not bad, but the intensity of the fruit flavour could be higher, as could the sourness. Not bad, but not thrilling.

Ester_ (98) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Orange color with a little bit of foam. Aromas of cherry candy a little sour. Flavors of cherry candy, spicy cherry and artificial cherry flavors. Couleur orange avec un peu de mousse. Arômes de bonbons à la cerise un peu surette. Saveurs de bonbons à la cerise, cerise épicée et saveur artificielle de cerises.

750 ml bottle from the LCBO. 15 months old. Pours an impressive clear bright red with thick head. Turned very murky when I poured out the bottom of the bottle. Smells like artificial cherry, cough syrup. Taste was much milder than the smell. Cherry notes for sure, some tart flavour and sweetness. Rather enjoyable, but not something I would buy again.
