On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Light orange coloring with a small head. Flavor was very full and dominated by orange and maybe some grapefruit. This is a very good one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is my favorite éphémère. It would totally own if they could make it regular. Orange color, light, and less tasty than the other éphémère. Little citrus taste, Acidic, medium carbonation. It taste unibroue Yeast. A nice one, really resfreshing. I’d drink it again anytime.

Poured deep golden amber with a fast fading off white head...generally bland aroma...maybe some sour fruits...very spritzy and flavorless though...not bad, just not much going on...like a...I don’t even know...a very malty saison I can almost see...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Funny, this beer looks exactly like every other Unibroue that I can recall. Hazy, medium dark brown body with a lot of foamy, small bubbles in the head. The taste reminds me of sour apple, which is still in the basement. Maybe that’ll be next. Lemony aftertaste that’s around a while. I didn’t like this style much at first but it’s growing on me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
hazy tan in colour (as are all the ephemere beers) and a lasting white frothy head. Scant trace of bubbling. A cornucopia of the cassis, peach, apple, and cranberry fruit flavors. Should work a bit better than it does. Cassis is the strongest. A tad citrusy sour, but the exact proper amount. Another strikingly good unibroue brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy, hazy orange with solid head formation. Overripe fruits (apricot, peach, and pineapple) with some just ripe grapes..high carbination with a full bodied mouthfeel lending theirselves to heavy yeasty fruit flavors...subtle grape tartness and a chewy bite to the finish. More full bodied than the fruit ephemere’s
