Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Hazy golden ale with a thin white head. Sour apples in nose with wheaty malt. A bit wild. In mouth, sour apples and tart notes with the nice wheaty malt background, tarnished by traces of oxidation. Creamy mouthfeel and medoium bodied.

jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2003
Pours slightly hazy yellow. A solid apple juicey flavour well balanced with the beer. Fairly light. Some interesting flavour notes that don't last long. Enjoyable.

Apples and malt…Pleasant and very light…

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & GregClow -- my bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty-looking yellow with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of wheat, green apples, yeast and spices. Flavour of sweet malt and green apples -- it works relatively well, it’s not bad. Light to medium bodied. Nothing special, just O.K.

HogTownHarry (6925) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle (660ml). Shared with blankboy and GregClow, blankboy’s bottle. Poured cloudy pale yellow, small frothy white head. Light aroma, slightly oxidized apple cores, apple seeds, hint of yeast and cardboard. Taste is simple - apples, little bit of white wine - just okay. Light, acidic body, slight caramel aftertaste - not too bad, boring, a little papery.

Boutip (6380) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2004
Bottle – Poured a blond beer with a nice huge head with standard retention. Carbonation is great with very good aroma of fresh apple with a little note of sweetness coming through. Taste is very refreshing with the apple taste being very noticeable (sweetness coming out at first and then a more acidic taste when the beer gets warmer) and nice mix of malts. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer and I find that to get the best out of this beer you need a fresh batch instead of some bottle that has been lying in some store for six months.

3.1
CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2003
(660ml Bottle) Pours very little head and a light golden body. Lively carbonation. Appley nose with a good sour flavour taste. Very light. Likeable when drinking one on a Sunday, sitting around watching traffic.

2.5
muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2004
660 ml bottle. Lovely, luminescent slightly hazy cider-gold, lasting creamy top...sweet apples and a hint of light malt in the nose...too much carbonation and a watery texture defeat the body, with a lemon-Sprite character that dominates the finish...improves slightly as it warms; this is a bit better than the Fraises (I actually finished it, anyway).

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
Buttery aroma with a hint of apples. Pours a big white head that recedes very quickly over a fairly still hazy golden body with very low carbonation. Flavour has just a hint of apple and a touch of hops in the finish but is also pretty buttery and sweet. Oily mouthfeel that is not altogether pleasant. Didn't really enjoy this one at all. Strange considering a number of fine offerings from this brewery. Bottle.

2.8
Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2004
Nice effervescent and cloudy body. Its head unfortunately lacks some density and fades quickly. Good and fresh apple aroma with some very subtle hints of coriander. The taste is watery and sort of disappointing. It definitely lacks some punch (especially compared to Éphémère aux pommes...) and apples are a way less present than it is in the aroma. Very discreet palate. Some work is to be done on that one: I felt like drinking east-german Apfelschörl cutted with water, which must be very refreshing on a warm summer afternoon...
