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!

This looks like a pretty underrated beer. It’s not overly sweet at all, it’s very reasonably priced. It’s similar in a lot of ways to the Three Philosophers. OK, so it’s not that complex, and a little weak in terms of mouthfeel. It’s enjoyable though.

Cloudy orange beer with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a berry fruityness and a light yeast note. Malty sour and sweet flavor with a sweet and light dry finish.

Cloudy pink grapefruit color. Aroma of raspberries and white sugar. Watery taste, with a very light fruit touch and extremely short final. Bad for my taste.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Hazy reddish orange with a small, slightly pink head. Very fruity, berry nose. Light-bodied with vaguely sour notes and very distinct accents of raspberries - appear authentic, not artificially flavoured. Not really sweet, but very fresh. A perfect summer aperitif. Thanks to Siroy for this. 150306

#2400... Bottle... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. The nose is a jumbled mess of berries, grain and bread dough. Thin, tartish flavor with moderate bitterness. Light-bodied and fizzy. Finishes weak, but crisp and clean. Too crisp and clean based on what was expected. Dissapointing! Thanks go out to my friend, Mr. Big, for the bottle. Not your fault!

750 ml bottle courtesy turg. Hazy pink orange colour with a mostly lasting fizzy and creamy white head. Fresh raspberry and light bread and caramel aroma. Faint dry raspberry acidity in the flavour with slight dusty/yeastiness in the finish. Light bodied, dry but refreshing mouthfeel.

J’ai été déçu. Je m’attendais à mieux. Orange maladif. Arôme pas très très accueillante. On goûte les framboise, mais on est loin de les apprécier.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2006
341 ml bottle. Very cloudy pink-orange beer with a thin pink head. Fairly sweet, simple, light raspberry aroma. A bit of soapiness with some wheatiness as well. Flavour is quite light, wheaty, light spice. Reasonable creamy bod. Fairly dry flavour, well-attenuated, but lacking in overall complexity. Some soft lingering fruitiness. Light sourness and strong floury (not flowery) flavour.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2006
No question---my least favorite fruit beer from these guys. Decent raspberry aroma on top of their spritzy wheat/yeast base. Flavor of overly carbonated-uncontrollablely-burp- inducing wheat beer with a fairly artificial raspberry syrup-type flavor profile. Way over-carbonated. Not to be repeated.

Tart, hazy, all around bland. This beer is out of focus. It’s in desperate need of some bifocals!
