3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours hazy straw with a slight orangish hue. Humongous fizzy white head, average lacing, copious amounts of carbonation. Aroma is very peachy, a bit yeasty. Initial taste has the peaches albeit somewhat artificial, but it quickly falls off halfway through. As it finishes you could barely tell what it was that you had. A tad too carbonated too, *burp*. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, still decent tho. Very interesting to say the least. I bet this would be popular with the ladies. Thanks goes out to radiomgb for the trade!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is a tasty treat. The appearance isn't fantastic but like all Unibroue beers that taste is really unique.

It's Ephemere all over again. Very yeasty. Cloudy off gold appearance. Nice looking beer. Somewhat chemically beer in the nose. The large 750ml bottle for some reason tasted better than the 8 mixer pack, capped 341ml bottle. Regardless still a nice beer. Tastes like an extract added to the regular version. This time it doesn't taste as muted. I liked it better than the apple but the cranberry is better. Looking forward to the casis.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a slight slight hazy blonde color with a modest white head. Aroma smells like this annoying bath and body works peach lotion. Tastse is cloying peach. Brewers should know by now that peach/apricot is way too strong to hide in a beer. I hate peach to begin with, the only reason why I had this is because I bought an 8 pack of just the Ephemeres and this was in it. Worst Unibroue beer to date for me. Ive had more enjoyable peach flavored malt beverages (mad dog 20/20) before.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy pale gold color. Aroma is that of peach and parmesan cheese. Very strong peach presence, overpowers any other flavor that may exist. I am not overly fond of peach, ergo this is not a beer for me. The end has some malty undertones, definately not Unibroue's best effort.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy pale golden colour. Initially poured with a lovely thick head that quickly dissipated. Very strong aroma of peaches with some maltiness. Mouthfeel was somewhat thin and overly carbonated. Despite the strong peach aroma, the taste was not was I expected. Sweet, malty taste with a subtly peach/apricot finish. Not bad as a easy-drinking summer beer, but I've definately had better

Colour is the same as the Cran and Apple, head the same. Strong peach and sugar scents. Smells like jam. Very slight smell of hops and carbonation. This one I'm not as keen on as the others. Jam with carbonation!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Went into this one expecting a very fruity beer - only got the aroma half though. Very strong peach aroma, with a nice pale yellow body and a quickly disappearing big white head. Very refreshing summer beer but not as flavourful as I had hoped. Enjoyable but not as much as the other Ephemere's I've tried.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very strong peach aroma - too over the top for me it seems more like a fruit malt beverage than a beer. Big white pillowy but fully-diminishing head on hazy yellow body. Peach is not as dominant in the initial flavour as the aroma led me to expect thankfully and there is a sharp tartness to the finish but overall this still doesn't feel enough like a beer. Unfortunately peach flavour builds and becomes sickly sweet after half a pint. Mouthfeel is prickly due to high carbonation. Certainly the least enjoyable of the Ephemere's and possibly the least enjoyable beer from this brewery. Bottle.
