Bottle drank at Dieu Du Ciel
Light gold color, light head, some lacing. Nose of light fruit, cherry, somewhat mendocino but more belgian (or maybe wisconsin). The flavor is lightly sweet, a bit of tart apple. Finishes balanced, nice residual tartness. The mouthfeel is nice and rich. Good.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2005 On tap at Delaney’s in New Haven. Cloudy with a white head. Smelled sweet and fruity, good essence of cranberry. Taste was better than the apple, with good sweetness and nice cranberry flavor. Very drinkable beer.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Cloudy yellow, with a sticky white head. Lemony, cranberry aroma -very sweet, candy-ish almoat. Nicly dry, and very fruity - cranberry, of course, as well as notes of lemoon and cherry. kind of a wheaty finish. Thanks to Springslicker for this one!

341 ml bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a fully diminishing fizzy and creamy white head. Cranberry, light tart raspberry, and yeasty aroma. Tart cranberry and dry yeasty flavours. Medium bodied, slick but fizzy mouthfeel.

Looks like a wit. Smells like a wit with cranberry added. Similarly uninteresting flavor, light wit with cranberries. Dissapointing.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
White head, big cranberry aroma, typical unibroue yeast, really fruity/spicy with a sour finish. I don’t really like cranberries, but it was ok.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2005
Very pale, sickly, cloudy yellow, with a moderate white head, aroma of ... well cranberry, and yeast, flavor very much that of cranberry, quite tart and pleasant, with a nice bready quality as well. Finishes tart. Enjoyable.

Thanks to tiggmtl for this one. Turbid straw pour with big white head. Aroma of big cranberries, malt, hopcit, and a bier de gardish finish. Lively palate. Very nice.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Pours yellowy with no noticeable head. Starts out malty and finishes with a very slight tarte cranberry taste. Much better than I was expecting. I think this one’s my favorite in the Ephemere series.

On draft. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Appearance is the same as Ephemere Apple. I somehow thought this would have a pink hue to it, being cranberry and all, but I guess I am wrong. Taste is yeasty, spicey, fruity with hints of cranberry. Not a whole lot of cranberry, just a hint. Decent stuff.
