Bottle. Pours a light pink with a fluffy head. Smell is slightly sweet with citrus notes. Based on appearance and smell I was expecting a fairly sweet beer. The taste is more crisp and tart. It’s very light on the tongue and doesn’t have much after taste. The currant flavor comes through a little but this has more of a citrus taste to me. As it warmed it developed a little more depth of flavor. It was very light and refreshing. It was a nice treat on a summer day but isn’t something I would go out of my way to have again.

Aroma is berries/fruit, malts and distinct yeast. The flavor is complex berries, Unibroue carbonation/effervescence, malts and a mix of spicy and mild/medium tart finish.

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle that is dated 06-22-2013. A bot older than I expected. The pour is amber with a maroon-reddish huge that takes things over. A big head white head that eventually fades. The aroma emits a full fruity black currant character with the Belgian toasted malt and yeast characters playing second fiddle. Little to no hop character. Might be the age of the bottle. Light to medium body. The taste emphasizes the black currant fruit more than anything else with a mild to moderate bitterness at the end. I could enjoy this on a day when it is 75-80 degrees.

Pours a cloudy bright orange topped by a finger of bright white head showing moderate retention and low lacing capacities. Light carbonation comes up to meet the head. The nose is obviously fruity but not overly sweet and even offers a ceratin acidity. I got grapes, cranberries and some green apples. The taste is once again a nice blend of fruity and acidic element paired with a mild sweetness through a medium body and some light sharpness and finishes very dry. Cheers!

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have berries, cherry, grape notes, caramel, with the typical Unibroue yeast character. Decent fruit beer.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin ring of white head. Awesome big cherry, strawberry, red grape aroma. So fruity. Yet, so not sugary syrupy sweet, like you’d think such a thing would be. Medium body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. Some apple. Love the aroma on this. Cranberry. Moderate sweet taste, but it has a dry finish. It’s not syrupy, slick, or sugary like you’d expect a fruit-forward beer to be. Definitely a more dry finish. Medium body. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Very impressive, stand-out fruit beer. I love the Ephemere series so far, each one has exceeded expectations. I would go out of my way to try each one available.

Aroma is of black currant, coriander, a bit of sourness, and a bit of orange. The color is a pinkish orange with the head being light pink. It has quick a lively head. Lacing is not very noticeable. The initial taste is sweet with a dry finish. The is an orange peel bit with the overall taste as well.

Don't like the aroma of this one. It has a bitter smell but not a very pleasant one. Taste: same bitterness... It doesn't get better. Had this one right after an "Éphémère aux cerises" and the "cerises" one was much better. I pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared June 26 at private tasting. Significant pop of cork. Pours raspberry color with big head and lace. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Aroma of raspberry, blueberry, rosewater. Flavors of old straw hops, lemon, lime, melons. Overall flavorful and refreshing with minimal malt and hops.

The beer pours great with a nice hazy pink color to it that passes through some light, has a nice thick pink head and okay lacing on the glass. The beer has a decent nose with a nice blend of black currant, orange, grapefruit, and corriander. The beer tastes decent with a nice mildly bitterness of the currants and with a mild orange and corriander follow through. The mouthfeel is okay as the beer is decently carbonated but doesnt leave much for taste around. Overall, I am glad to see this beer return and it didnt disappoint, not your typical "fruit" beer.

lesifflebiere (1887) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
Liquide rose-orange avec une abondance de mousse blanche qui surgit de la bouteille. Fruits rouges au nez. Les fruits dominent en bouche, sans surprise, avec une petite finale acidulée qui rajoute un peu de complexité. Bière fruitée typique, bien faite dans le genre.
