The second in a series of lively original recipe beers that come and go before you know it. From season to season and year to year you’ll find a different Éphémère beer.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Pours a cloudy light amber color with a thick and lasting head that is ever so slightly colored by the cranberries. The nose is fruity and obviously influenced by cranberry but it’s not the only thing. There is that classic yeasty scent that I expect from Unibroue as well as a slightly spicey cinnamon and black pepper aroma. The flavor is truly divine. Some of the signature Unibroue flavor is there. Strong yeast presence. But there’s a nice little hint of cranberry that compliments the flavor without dominating the beer. I enjoyed this beer quite a bit and was impressed that they made the cranberry flavor so subtle. I was expecting the cranberries to be as prevalent in this as they are in the apple version. Highly suggested and I would love to get another bottle for Thanksgiving.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy pink body (similar to pink grapefruit juice; unique indeed) with a large frothy white head. Aroma of musitness, florals, and hint of cranberries. Flavor of wheat (strong), spicy yeast, cloves, and mild cranberries.

750ml Bottle. Again, balance between the fruit and the beer taste is perfect. The cranberries are not killing the beer taste, it’s like a 50-50.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Pours hazy gold with some light orange hues. Nose of currants, cranberry and some sort of minty toothpaste-esque-ness. Although I don’t particularily like cranberries, they suited the beer well and incorporated evenly. Lots of yeast and secondary apple and wheat flavours. Quite perfumey. Not entirely unpleasant and possibly the best of the bunch.

rederic (3228) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2005
On tap at Le Zinc, hazy honey amber hue, with a creamy white head, with yeasty, wheat, fieldberry nose but cranberry emerging on top, medium-bodied palate with yeasty, tart fruitiness by the fruity field berry, good acidity leading to a cranberry acidic and sourness finish.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2005
Bottled. Very fruity aroma, probably cranberry but didn’t recognize them as such. More like red berries. Hazy, dark yellow color, large whie head, good lace. Neutral start with little fruitiness but than it starts and finishes very fruity and sweet. Very well balanced but overal weak and not really my taste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2005
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!
