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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 On tap at Palmer Place in LaGrange - This is good, although I believe I prefer the apple. Nice, light golden color with a frizzy white head, this has a delicate cranberry scent - not overbearing, just interesting. It drinks like a Belgian with, although with more carbonation, lively in the mouth. The tart cranberry returns in the finish. This is a very satisfying drink for someone who (like me) isn’t a real fan of fruit beers.

01.15.05 Sampled from 750ml bottle at Heavyweight openhouse. Pale golden pour with a bit of a glow to it; fizzy white head. Aromas lean towards medicinal, but then a doughy, biscuit character overcomes the fruit and helps it level out. The flavor worked the opposite for me as it seemed wheaty and doughy up front which yielded to a tart and somewhat sour finish. I was having trouble picking out cranberry specifically, but there was a tart fruit flavor of some kind. A nice surprise to find and taste.

Pour is a little darker than other ephemere’s with a thin white head...smell is cranberry, yeast, and doughy...taste is malty, then some sour cranberry that builds into a nice finish, but a little cloying...good beer though!
