2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is lighter on the fruit than the peach, which I think I prefer. I agree that perhaps a bit more cranberry would be nice.

Same, distinctive Ephemere aroma - fresh, light; but even lighter fruit than the peach and apple. Not enough cranberry is my feeling. I think this one is a bit boring compared to the aforementioned two...and a bit drier. I don't particularly like the aftertaste, but it is warming well...

The lightest in aroma and flavor from the fruit of the 3 ephemeres, I believe. Yet, quizzically, it's not easy to find the other potential (I don't know if they're there!) spices. Thinnish, highly effervescent with a fantastically clean finish with just the hint of cranberry - I love it. I wish it wasn't so rare for me. Thanks Jeff!

cloudy blonde, white head. ephemere with raspberry? at first that's how it seems, then as the beer warms, you find the cranberries hiding with the bitterness. not bad at all.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2003 Hazy blonde, I thought more about raspberries when sniffing the glass, appealing nevertheless. While the taste is refreshing due to a well cut acid tone, after just a few sips, I could appreciate a glass of water, the cranberries leave an aftertaste that was not so pleasant for me. Still pretty unique and original.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale yellow and quite cloudy, with large billowy head. Dry and tart, with just a hint at cranberry in the aroma and flavor. Well done and nicely balanced. Light acidity provides good tartness. Reminds me of a toned down Berliner weisse with a dab of fruit flavoring. Very refreshing hot weather beer, and pretty much what a fruited wheat beer ought to be if its not going to be a lambic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden with a pinkish hue and a big white head. Somewhat fruity wheat aroma leads into a fizzy, lightly sweet and tart body with a touch of cranberries. Good balance of fruit and malt with a nice touch of yeasty spice. A good fruit beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is tangy cranberry. Appearance is cloudy with nice white head - lots of carbonation bubbles. Flavour is bland cranberry, tart not sweet but very few other tastes are present.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow-orange colour with a fluffy snow-white head. Familiar Unibroue aroma with the added attraction of tart cranberries. Nice crisp body, perhaps a little light, but refreshing. Flavour holds the familiar Unibroue yeastiness with a nice contrast of sweet spice notes and the slightly bitter cranberry flavour.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale, hazy yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. The nose is slightly tart offering up a light spice and that familiar Unibroue yeast. Fresh fruit, mostly cranberry. The body has a light yeastiness with a mouthfilling spritziness. Fruity, berry flavors, dries at the end. I could stand a bit more of the cranberry here and for sure some more tartness. Overall, a fairly nice summer fruit beer.
