Une bouteille de 750ml. Une robe saumonée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez fruité avec des notes de blé. Une bouche sèche, fruité agréable et facile. Une touche acide en finale. Bien faite. Un retour en force pour cette bière disparue.

Aug. 3, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO. Big fluffy head that dissipated leaving a rim of bubbles. Aromas of sour apple, wheat and faint tart cranberry. Distinctive Unibroue aroma. Lovely refreshing taste, very crisp. Cranberry, sour apple, sour grapes. It’s a toss up if this is better than the Ephemere Apple; both are good.

TheJester (1915) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
750 mL bottle. (BottledMarch 31, 2014.) Lovely pour, as is expected from Unibroue. Golden with a medium white head and nice lacing. Mild bittersweet cranberry, wheat and yeast in the nose. Doesn’t give a lot away. More cranberry in the flavour, though. Unibroue’s base ephemere beer is, as usual, a solid vehicle for the fruit, unlike many fruit beers, where the base beer is bloody awful. I think I still like the Cerise better, though.

Frothmeister (565) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a large white head of fine bubbles, and considerable carbonation. Very acidic on the nose. So much so I expect this to taste like a lambic, but it doesn’t. Also, tart apple notes, light earthy black pepper, yeast, and very light peach candy notes. The taste is tartness, cranberry, red currant, red plum, and yeasty notes that leads into a almost watery traditional cider note (back when ciders weren’t syrupy apple drinks) with lots of red fruit, and a light floral note in the finish. I’ve enjoyed the various Ephemere’s in the past, but the tartness of the cranberry totally takes this one up a notch. Light, dry, and refreshing. Almost as good as the cassis version.

cattaneopapa (189) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
750ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. 5 5% alc./vol. Pours a hazy pale gold colour with 2 finger of lasting white head. Thick lacing clings to the side of the glass. Champagne-like carbonation The aroma is mainly cranberries and apples. Taste is quite fruity in the beginning, mainly cranberries, apples and white grapes. Finish is malty and slighty bitter. Carbonation is high.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 Bien pas trop goûteuse mais tres fruité. Quand même mon Ephémère préféré. Le gout de canneberge est très subtile. Je la considère comme une blanche avec un goût caractéristique de Unibroue.

Si on ne se fiait qu’à la couleur, on ne pourrait aucunement dire qu’elle est aux canneberges. C’est blond, légèrement voilé et un mince col de mousse la recouvre. Le nez est principalement fruité avec une légère acidité propre au fruit. On sait qu’on a à faire avec un produit Unibroue lorsqu’on y goûte, avec une variante intéressante qu’est la partir acidulée, apportée par la canneberge. Par moment, on goûte à de la pelure d’orange. C’est vraiment rafraîchissant. (Embouteillé le 31 mars 2014) (1123-260614)

On tap at the Only Cafe. Pours a cloudy golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is tart cranberry, wheat and light spice. Flavour is fairly tart cranberry, wheat and clove. Fine carbonation. Drying finish. Nice summer beer.
