Bottle. Ephemere is light-colored and cloudy with a tall fizzy head. The head dissolved to a thin surface film within 10 minutes. The nose is spiced green apples with an herbal character as well. The flavor is a curious, tasty commingling of wheat malt, apples and spice. The Belgian yeast is unmistakeably pervasive. The malt is muted to let the intended flavors sing out. The beer is a tart apple, with an earthy spiciness that settles into the back of your cheeks. Light bodied and carbonated, this beer demands to be noticed like a June bug bouncing across your window at night looking for to get to the light inside. Ephemere Apple is pretty good. I am not a big fan of fruit beers. But this one is well made and focused.

Bottled. Best by 07/28/17. Pours clear honey color, white head. Aroma is lots of apple, sweet granny smith apples, mild Belgian undertones. Flavor is wheat, clove, plenty of apple, light Belgian spices and esters. It’s fine. Very carbonated. Too much.

Aroma: chemical apple flavour, wheat ; Taste: very sweet, no bitterness, light acidity ; Palate: medium to light body, lively, sweet finish. I could not finish it, I didn’t like it at all

Unibroue disappoints rarely. This one is just a notch below the others. Poured into a chalice glass. It is a hazy yellow with a persistent finely-bubbled white top. It smells floral and fruity. The taste is mild, apples and peaches with a nice sweetness. An easy drink. I like more challenge in a brew.

Pours an amber from a bottle. Nice apple aroma follows through in the flavor along with some nice yeast and barnyard notes. Good beer.

BB backlog, This used to be one of our go to Belgian beers back in the day. Bottles and drafts, this was on tap at PJ’s Pour House with John and Mike. Pours hazy yellow golden with a large head. Crisp carbonation. Smell and taste are granny smith apples, candy, light malt, and other sour fruit skins. Medium bodied. Really enjoyable fruit beer from Unibroue

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Bière de blé à la mousse somptueuse et riche, l’Éphémère Pomme exhibe des arômes fruités et racés de cannelle, de gingembre et de muscade. En bouche, elle débute avec une attaque saline suivie par des notes élégantes de « Granny Smith » et de « McIntosh » pour se finir avec des réminiscences de grains grillés. Bière agréable.

Robe dorée sans mousse. Un nez fruité, pomme verte. Goût de vanille, épicé. Très légère.

Draft. Aroma of apples, some hops, plenty of fruit. Peach? The taste is refreshing and doesn’t have too much apple. Very enjoyable.
