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!

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.

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

JorisPPattyn (9380) - Ursel, 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!

dmac (5466) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle with lunch in Chambly. Poured a slightly hazy orange/amber with a slight pink hue and an average bubbly white head. Aroma was dry and musty with just ahint of raspberry. Light watery body with slight carbonation. Flavor was on the bland side with only a touch of raspberry. The food was so so and the best thing about this lunch by far was the view.

Snoro (303) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2007
La lie bien mêlée elle est très bonne. Pas du tout âcre, aucun arrière goût, très pétillante, beaucoup de goût de framboise et une très belle couleur ambrée orange et rose. Que demandé de mieux, bravo!

Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2007
0.34 l bottle. Yellow to brown color with small head. Strong sweet raspberry aroma, nothing else. Dryer flavor, strong on raspberry but still noticeable wheat beer backbone. More beery finish with wheaty and bready notes.

Magtek32 (76) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
750ml bottle. Hazy pale orange/red colour with a small white head that disappears quickly. Tart raspberry aroma, and the taste is the same but less intense. Highly carbonated and smooth mouth feel. Not bad but the apple was better.
