I think this was a bad bottle or something. I just pulled the cork out; it didn't pop at all. Strong cork taste with very slight hints of apple and lots of carbonation.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Medium gold color with a fine bubbly head and loads of carbonation. Very aromatic, I could wiff it before even picking up the glass-sour apples, cherries, bubblegum and lemon drops came to mind. Light to medium body with a mouthfeel that seemed a little flat in spite of all the carbonation. Apple and citrus flavors, orange and lemon with a background maltiness that got blander as it went along, and a finish that reminded me of used chewing gum. This one didn't convince me at all but it does have an awesome aroma.

MMM...Beer (385) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Very nice, refreshing beer. Definitely not a Winter Brew but I had heard so many great things about it, I decided to give it a shot. Thick, fluffy-white head lifts up a wonderful nose of fruit (heavy on apples and corianer of course). Palate is very soft with just a tweek of fruity-sourness. Nice cloudy/deep yellow color as well.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2003
The aroma of apples really wasnt there. The head was large and lacey. The color was a murky gold. I hate apples, but this had just the slightest taste of apples in it. I think this is a great finishing beer to a fine winters meal.

Bottle. Light golden color with decent size white head. Aroma of apple cider. Tastes extremely appley and a bit sweet. Not my cup of tea.

Boutip (6267) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
Bottle: It pourred a light brew with a faint smell of cider. Huge head with good retention skill. Lot of carbonnation and the usual wheat taste from Unibroue. The spice and apple aroma are too faint and therefore this probably my least favorite from the Ephemere series. I did notice that it is better when drank warm. The sour taste of apple is accentuated. Note: I once drank this on tap and it was way better but can't find it on tap anywhere now.

boto (2180) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Bottle: A very interesting beer. It pours a hazy yellow color with a huge, frothy white head. Sour apples to the nose, as well as some spiciness. The taste is of apple, a bit of wheat, some breadiness, a hair sweet to the taste as well as the sour apple taste. An interesting change of pace, but I couldn't drink many at one time.

Jayb0 (1184) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Very nice beer. Strong tart apple nose with spritzy white head. Pale gold and slightly hazy, although clearing.The strong apple in the nose disappears up front giving way to malt and light spiciness, perhaps some wheat character. Apple sweetness returns towards the finish delivering a slight lingering sweetness.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Very pale, clouded yellow appearance, good head formation. Sweet apple juice aroma, sugarry, mildly woody. Spritzy effervescent palate, light and drinkable. Sweet appley flavor predominant, citrussy and minty with a little peppery spice. Dry and crisp in the finish with faint lingering appley sugar notes in the aftertaste.

Not a bad fruit beer. Apple is not overbearing, and the brew as a whole isn't overly sweet, which is good. A nice change from what you have been drinking.
