3.58/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - copper with a hint of red, slightly pink head is creamy and held nicely
S - sour cherry with a very strong medicine like aroma, light grains
T - sour cherry with a mineral or medicine twang, a little soapy on the finish
M - creamy and well carbonated, slightly sour but smooth finish
O - nice enough but something about it just isn't as nice as previous ephrmere offerings, but Unibroue is always worth a try

3.93/5  rDev +12%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a Unibroue chalice.

A: Pours a pink tinged golden color. Clarity is good. Pillowy white cap of lacing stands at an impressive three fingers. Lacing is web-like and thick.

S: Overt cherry aroma dominates the nose, perfumey with some tartness. Subtle yeasty undertones with hints of white pepper. Perhaps a bit of wheat poking through too.

T: Tart cherries set in early. Surprisingly dry. Yeast character starts to come into focus more and diverts some attention away from the cherries. Somewhat chalky. Hints clovey phenols. Wheaty base. White pepper. Dry finish of wheat, yeast, and fading tart cherry.

M: Light bodied. Creamy and frothy. Highly effervescent and scrubbing. Every sip feels as though it evaporates right out of the mouth.

O: Unibroue's fruit beers don't get a lot of love, but there really isn't much to hate here. The overall dryness really works to its advantage. It's a very delicate beer, and the flavors are simple and fleeting. So light in texture and substance that you could drink the whole 750ml bottle and not even know it was in your stomach. Pair with angel food cake, maybe?

3.4/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

a = A very lovely apricot orange color, slightly clouded. A rosy short-lived head that dissipates to a thin film on the top, some lacing.

S = Pleasant, light fruits and yeast.

T = Cherries are present, but not predominant. Tart, not sweet. Also, some spiciness.

M = Light and bright, respectable amount of carbonation.

O = To me, the overall profile of this ale is almost like a pilsner, if that's even possible. The fruit and spices adds intrigue to the flavor. It would make a wonderful summer sipping beer, or pair it with a nice chicken dish any time of year instead of a white wine. Dare I suggest you even serve it with the right dessert?
