3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2004 Thick white head of fine bubbles. Decent carbonation. Nice sweet aroma of spiced apples, yeast and a bit of other spices. Color is a murky golden amber. Flavor is fizzy, clean and smooth. Light flavors of fruit, yeast with a dry mouthfeel like eating a granny smith apple. Finish is dry and slightly tart. A decent brew. Thanks to radiomgb for this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341ml bottle, aged 12 months or so. Slightly hazy orange with a large, white, foamy, lasting head. Orange and lemon zest in the citrusy aroma, along with some yeast. Light body with a lively mouthfeel that is more rounded and far less prickly than other beers in this series. Fruity, citrusy flavour with lemon and lime tastes that are moderately sour and acidic. A touch of tangy yeast in the background. Clean, citrusy finish. Enjoyable and nicely refreshing. Unibroue should forget the fruit and just brew this version as a regular summer seasonal.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours an airy ultra fast disappearing head on a hazy orange body. Aroma is mild fruity with banana and flower tones and a slight sourness. Flavor is thin and weak, flower notes and some sourness. Boring. Thanks to Philippe (Bov) for trading me this!

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
An unclear dark orange beer with a small fast disappearing white head. The aroma is slightly sour with hints of wood. The flavor is sour with notes of malt, wood, and caramel and with a thin body. Plain boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a hazy gold/amber with lots of bubbles and a big, slowly diminishing head. lots of yeasty aromas-phenols and esters, over a rounded malt nose. flavor is much calmer than the nose would lead you to believe-smooth and malty, with a dry finish. palate is very lively and crisp, which helps its drinkability. overall a good beer-easy to drink, and complex without going over the top.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured with a dark golden cloudy appearance. Very effervescant with a good full head that lasts. Sweet citrus and very phenolic aroma. Some sweetness followed by a med tart flavor with some phenolic flavors in the finish. The finish has a dry tartness that lingers on. A decent but not remarkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a nice refreshing beer from Unibroue. Light golden colour with a slight haze in the glass. Big white head and lacing. Highly carbonated. Taste is very dry and champagne-like. Faint fruitiness. Very similar to all of the Ephemere styles.
