COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Éphémère Framboise is the fifth in a series of special and short-lived beers. Its pinkish hue, strong raspberry bouquet and refreshing taste unite to offer you a unique sensory experience. It is an original recipe that has come and gone before you know it!

750ml bottle part of trade from Brewgirlca, thanks Dark brown red color. Good thick lacing, slow falling. nose is raspberry pasty, sweet and light. Taste is sweet raspberry, some yeast, and light spice. Has a similar ephemere feel, really refreshing and highly drinkable. 4.05

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 750mL bottle split with PWN3d. Pours hazy orange-red body with white head. Awesome aroma of raspberries. Not as much spritzer in the taste in comparison to the other ephemeres ive had. Very good - raspberry tart taste.

Its hard not to like an éphemère. Good fruit beer, perfect balance between malt, yeast and raspberries. It can warm you up during the winter, or cool you down in the summer....

FarFromHome (85) - Philadelphia, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Chilled large bottle in Philadelphia, PA. After drinking Ephemere Apple, I was hoping for a strong raspberry flavour. I found it for the first few seconds after drinking this: the raspberry taste quickly decays into a swirling, creamy, syrupy canal. As with all Unibroue products, a definite step up from my regular drinking habits, but not anything that I would request to go with my last meal.

GreenWall (54) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2008
Mild raspberry aroma with a fairly uninteresting appearance. The flavour is largely dominated by the raspberry, which doesn’t quite overpower the malt which could have a thicker profile. Mildly sweet and generally pretty tasty.

jmikep (8) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2007 does not count
750 mL. Slightly chilled. Pours a hazy golden beer. Very foamy. Raspberries and citrus aromas. Malty taste with hints of raspberries. Dry taste... refreshing. A good summer beer

750ml. l’amertume des framboises est présente. pas sucrée cette bière n’est pas un jus de framboise mais bien une bière aromatisée. belle couleur. bonne bière.

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2007
Uneven fine, lightly pinkish head, over orangeish to transparant terracotta beer. Raspberry aroma (not 100% natural, ’t would seem) mixed with something sharp, unidentifiable, as well as coriander, fer chrissakes. Spicy taste with a faraway raspberry flavour faint, and - indeed - éphémère. Slight tartness. Sharp carbonation - for masking the emptiness? Ephémère in name and in impression. Why the coriander? They are probably ashamed of it themselves, as I needed BOTH glasses and a magnifying glass to read the ingredients list!
