The one time I have had the pleasure to taste this beer I decided that it was basically perfect. Very intriguing character with the perfect amount of residual sweetness to carry off a miraculous creation.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Wonderfully refreshing little belgian ale. The bottle I had was an original unflavoured beer (said Hiver - not Printemps). I hope it is the same beer. Anyway, aged about three years, this beer was a little sour and refreshing, some citrus notes and wheat tartness in evidence. It is a light golden colour with a rich white head.

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.

Aroma of apple blossom and honey; lively carbonation, pleasant tartiness; fruit and a bit of bitterness in the lingering aftertaste.

Had a glass of this from a bottle at the Arbor Brewing Company sours & fruits tasting. Didn’t take formal notes. Sweet note, carby, fruity, unique.

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.

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.

This pours with a sizeable head into a lovely golden colour. Both the aroma and taste suggest green apples, with just that bit of green apple "bite", but at the end is also a tiny hint of sweetness, perhaps the black currant must.
