Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2004
341ml bottle, aged 12 months or so. Slightly hazy orange with a large, white, foamy, lasting head. Orange and lemon zest in the citrusy aroma, along with some yeast. Light body with a lively mouthfeel that is more rounded and far less prickly than other beers in this series. Fruity, citrusy flavour with lemon and lime tastes that are moderately sour and acidic. A touch of tangy yeast in the background. Clean, citrusy finish. Enjoyable and nicely refreshing. Unibroue should forget the fruit and just brew this version as a regular summer seasonal.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Pours an airy ultra fast disappearing head on a hazy orange body. Aroma is mild fruity with banana and flower tones and a slight sourness. Flavor is thin and weak, flower notes and some sourness. Boring. Thanks to Philippe (Bov) for trading me this!

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
An unclear dark orange beer with a small fast disappearing white head. The aroma is slightly sour with hints of wood. The flavor is sour with notes of malt, wood, and caramel and with a thin body. Plain boring.

madsberg (10598) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
Bottled: Dark hazy golden coloured. Beige lasting head. Fruits, sweetness and malt in the aroma. Malt, light yeast and a bit citrus in the flavour. Ends up very dry and acidic. Dies quickly on the palate.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2004
Cloudy dark orange coloured. Not very pleasant aroma of yeast. Very weak flavour. A truly bland brew.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2004
pours a hazy gold/amber with lots of bubbles and a big, slowly diminishing head. lots of yeasty aromas-phenols and esters, over a rounded malt nose. flavor is much calmer than the nose would lead you to believe-smooth and malty, with a dry finish. palate is very lively and crisp, which helps its drinkability. overall a good beer-easy to drink, and complex without going over the top.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Poured with a dark golden cloudy appearance. Very effervescant with a good full head that lasts. Sweet citrus and very phenolic aroma. Some sweetness followed by a med tart flavor with some phenolic flavors in the finish. The finish has a dry tartness that lingers on. A decent but not remarkable beer.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
This is a nice refreshing beer from Unibroue. Light golden colour with a slight haze in the glass. Big white head and lacing. Highly carbonated. Taste is very dry and champagne-like. Faint fruitiness. Very similar to all of the Ephemere styles.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Hazy deep golden in color with a large white head.Aroma of icder and some tart fruit,with a mixtrue of bread and yeast.Finishes dry and thin,with too high a carbonation level,makes it seem more like champagne.

Jfishback13 (275) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2004
More like a little taste of champagn than a beer. Apple flavoring and bubbles. Not much more to say than that.
