Aroma is full of fruit and sweet, like apple. Color was a nice mirky yellow with no head. Spice notes in the flavor.

Pours a cloudy light orange. Aroma is mostly apple juice. A little yeast too. Very smooth taste but it is mostly just apple. Still I kinda like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 This was an extremely surprising, strange and tasty beer. It was very floral and fruity. Interesting.

Aroma is fruity and complex. Basis of sour apple, grapes plus a lot of others. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick. Taste brings more fruit. Sour with a crisp dry finish mixed with esters from the Belgian yeast.

750ml bottle pu4chased today advertised as "bottle refermented-flavored White Ale on Lees, Ale brewed with apple juice, Coriander, Orange Peel and with natural flavor added", with same artwork as pictured here and no mention of any dominant flavor. Pours a hazy yellow with significant head. Aroma is mostly apple, with some spices. I was expecting a Belgian White and got hard apple cider with some spices instead. Will not try again.

Pours boring yellow. Smells like almost nothing, maybe a little sour apple in there. Tastes like a sour, cheaply made, watery bottle of macro brew that’s trying to be fancy. Finish like water. This brew sucks. Beautiful packaging though. Looks like a freaking Maxfield Parrish painting.

cavis (1) - USA - OCT 16, 2010 does not count
Very light, perfect summer beer on a patio, maybe a little too sweet due to apple used in brewing

This brew is the base body of all other fruity Ephemere (without any fruit). It poured a hazy orange-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. As the head dissapeared slowly, a layer of foam was left. The colour is darker then all other Ephemeres. Aromas were of yeast, Belgium sweet malts and spices. The mouth was on the sour side with a slight bitter aftertaste. Had a huge amount of carbonation. This is a great beer a-la-Belgium-Ale-style.
