4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The bottle i had was 1.5 years old and the beer had matured nicely. Nice complexity in the nose. Mouthfeel was silky. Flavours strongest of bitter orange but spicy and reasonably malty also.

Noer1 says rasberries, and after having that flavor implanted in my head I began to taste them. I couldn’t quite pinpoint any other flavors in this one(probably because of the three 750ml bottles Unibroue brews I downed before this one), but I am a fan...as I am of nearly all the beers from Unibroue!

Sour cranberries floating in light sugar…Nice malt backbone and yeast effervescence…An unusual winter...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Tan, cloudy w/pillowy white head. Cranberry aroma with vague bread, wood and hop...in other words, you know there's beer underthere somewhere. Mostly cranberry on the the palate, as the malt and hops both sit back and chill out. The yeast, as in all Ephemeres, is still very much a factor. Refreshing and fruity with an off-dry finish and less tartness than the others in this series.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2005 Very lively and citrusy. Cranberrys maybe? Champagne-like bubbles that tickle the nose.
This rate was done before the brewery told you what was in them- hence the stupid remark that I hinted cranberry!!
