Ungstrup (29170) - 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.

Cloudy light amber color. Light aroma, white sugar. Dry, and rather poor mouthfeel. Doesn't seem to be a great idea…

hopscotch (8907) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Murky, peach-colored brew. Small, white, lasting head with decent lacing. The aroma is of honey, coriander, pear and yeast. Spicy, yeasty and lightly sweet. "Saison Light"? Not much else to the flavor. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent, lightly sweet finish. Thanks to radiomgb for this refreshing beer!

JoeMcPhee (8314) - 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.
