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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
