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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tart, hazy, all around bland. This beer is out of focus. It’s in desperate need of some bifocals!

Elle a une belle couleur rouge-vin, on goût un peu les framboises, mais comme pomme, pas assé.

Thanks for the bottle TURG! Hazy brown liquid lays beneath a foamy, slight off-white head. Some lacing left behind. Boquet of fresh raspberries and candy. Marked unibroue yeast in the mouth, with mildly sweet raspberry flavours. Good carbonation. FInish is a tad watery. Pretty good. Merci Francois!

Cloudy, copper - timber look . Pours large head that recedes with time . sweet candy raspberry nose . Fruity ale, clean yeas but thinish . The flavoring is just passable for what Raspberry should be. A bit flat finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Tart leafy raspberry aroma. Hazy amber pink body with a small white head. Tart mild raspbery flavour, with a very viney/leafy profile. Touch light palate. Not unpleasant but unimpressive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. pours a dark orange-red body with a massive frothy white head that slowly recedes leaving sparse lacing. the aroma has a powerful raspberry essence but not necessarily in a good way - it’s very candyish and leads me to believe that this will be cloying. well, it’s better tasting that I had anticipated. flavours of mildly tart raspberries with a creamy yeast body like the other Éphémères. a little bit of sweetness is left in the finish. it’s refreshing for sure but lacks overall substance. I still prefer the other ones to this.
