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

Pours cloudy gold with a big frothy white top. Aroma is bitter cranberry with sweet grains. Taste is a very solid basic beer infused with the bitterness and tart from the cranberries.

Cloudy dirty yellow color. Slight yeasty fruitiness on the nose. Taste- tart, yeasty, wheaty and perfumey. The cranberry is subtle but present. Not very sweet, more dry. Very effervescent. Refreshing but overall, somewhat boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 7/25/2016. Pours hazy bright golden straw color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tart cranberry, peach, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Awesome aromas with great complexity and balance of cranberry, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lightly tart cranberry, peach, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of cranberry, peach, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of cranberry, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; wit ha great yeast/malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited witbier style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of cranberry, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is powdered sugar covered cranberrys. Flavor is a spritzy wheat ale with cranberry in the backround. Not as heavy on the cranberry as I was thinking this would be. Still it’s a better than average fruit-wheat beer. Nothing artificial in this.

11/7/2014. 750 ml. bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a white head. Fruity wheat aromas with Belgian yeast and spices. The cranberry is somewhat muted and this is mostly a Belgian Wit. Still pretty tasty.

PhillyCraft (4071) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at SPTR, pours lightly hazy and murky golden brown with small to medium white head. Aromas and flavor of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, cherry candy but faint, not much cranberry. Medium bodied. This is alright just not nearly enough cranberry in this one.

Bottle. Aroma is slight, not overpowering, with delicate cranberry hints to it. Looks light golden in colour, no touches of red at all. Tastes on the sweet side, lacks any kind of tart cranberry flavour which is both a blessing and a curse. Some tartness would’ve balanced it out. It has a light finish and polishes more refreshing than you’d think. Quite nice.

Tap sample. Poured hazy amber with an average frothy white head that was fully lasting and produced fair lacing. Medium fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Sweet fruit flavor with a light fruit sweet finish of average duration.
