Ephemere with Cherries

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.

On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. LIght cherry aroma, sweet with some tart notes. Like Sucrets. Golden amber body with thin lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts light with a bit of sweet cherry flavor. Tart fruity notes. Carbonic tang. Finish is light cherry, but a bit watery. Light fruity after.

Bouteille de 341ml. Une bière à la robe rose oeil de perdrix avec une mousse abondante blanche. Un nez léger de cerise, acide. Une bouche simple de cerise, de blé et de levure avec une texture de gaz carbonique intense. Ressemble à la version canneberges mais aux cerises.

Ed5388 (2089) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a clear amber color with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma and taste were much the same. Notes of floral hops, sweet apples, funk, and tart cherry.

o_Merlin_o (178) - California, USA - APR 7, 2014
On tap at Pizza Port Bressi Ranch. Pours a cloudy light amber color with giant effervescent head. Aroma of candy. Definite apple and cherry flavoring. Fruity. The candy palate lasts quite a long time. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Ruby pour with white head. Aroma is dominated by cherry and some light apple tones. Flavor is light sweet cheery tones, some tart and apple.

PhillyCraft (3221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
on tap at P house, pours like raspberry Italian soda as far as appearance goes. Watery head and no lace with lots of bubbles and lots, lots of carbonation. Smell/taste is cherry water ice, perfume, and apples. this is thin and all over the fucking place compared to the regular ephemere.

Voilà une bière éphémère qu’il me fallait bien boire avant qu’elle ne disparaisse des tablettes. Bière de couleur rouge ambré, avec une mousse blanche généreuse, comme c’est pas mal toujours le cas chez Unibroue. Nez puissant de cerises chimiques et de sucre. Rien d’exceptionnel. En bouche, c’est beaucoup plus intéressant. La cerise se nuance et des notes de bonbons et d’épices s’y mêlent. Pas mauvais. Ce n’est pas trop mon style, mais ça demeure un produit réussi. Bonne bière aux fruits. Cheers!

Tastes like cherry flavoured cough syrup. The apple version is much more in balance. Couldn’t stand it.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy orange with white lacing. Smells of medicinal cherry. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Underwhelming, and nowhere near as pleasant as Ephemere apple.
