Had this on Tap at Congregation Ale house .L.B. Ca. O.k. here goes my first beer review.

Clear bright golden yellow color with a 1 finger head on it.

Milld sweet smell of Green Apples, fruit & Honey ...(my first thought was sparkling cider). Smells good -refreshing!

Taste is Wow! I expected it to be sweater, but taste is very nice..well balanced apple and mild fruit sweetness while maintaining the fact this is a beer.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, clean, tiny bubbles dance on your tongue. Finishes very clean without lingering aftertaste.

Very drinkable..I could drink this all day on a nice hot Summer day.

Overall a good beer for anyone who is not much of a beer drinker to those who like a mild, clean, very flavorful beer. I'll be back for more!

Outstanding and highly recommended.

Bottle conditioned in a 12-oz bottle, it did not considerably differ from that conditioned in the larger size.

White pillowy head, enormously exciteable. Hazy yellow gold.

Tangy tart aroma represents the fresh fruit, the malt and the hops; goes light on the spice (coreander plainly listed on label is not overdone.) Not desserty, this has a vinous aroma that doesn't overpower. Nothing false about it.

Not as tart in flavor, or even as appley as the granny smith on the label would leave one to believe. Clearly ale made from grain, and nowhere near cidery. Lovely subtley with suitable complexity: brisk flash of biscuity malt, zip of citrus peel hops and third, the real apple flavor. Short, refreshing, light finish of fruit and grain.

Wow...

Pours hazy medium amber, looks like a hefe. 4 fingers head! I think I wasn't very careful on this pour. Extensive retention, had to wait awhile for it to dissipate. Smells fruity (mainly apples) and delicate spice (coriander) with some background notes of malt. Taste was ridiculous. Mild but solid apples with the spice and the malt to keep you noticing it's still a beer. Almost nothing like a beer though. No bitterness whatsoever, everything is just like the title, 'Ephemere'. I only had it out of a 12 oz bottle, I think I need to have the full experience with the larger bottle. Definitely a unique and wonderful brew.

I was very excited about trying this offering from Unibroue.I had never seen it before or heard of it, and it sounded great from the bottles short description.Appearance was perfect with a monster head that erupted even with a soft pour, and left chunky white foam.The aroma was exquisite of apple juice.The colr was a hazy and cloudy gold.Bottle left sediment at the bottom.Mouthfeel was creamy with a rolling texture as with all of Unibroue's offerings.Bitterness is definately from green apples.Spiced with coriander and curacao.I think I could drink these all day.All the Unibroue's beers I've had are 8% and above ABV so this is quite a change.A natural green apple taste that does not taste fake.Spotty traces of lace left.Slight wheat after taste. A subtle lingering bitterness.Very refershing and highly drinkable.The reason the drinkability wasnt higher is that these can get a touch sweet after awhile.Even my girlfriend who hates beer was impressed with this and drank almost a half a bottle.

Note:I rarely give out 5's but IMO this deserved it.
