Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a pale yellow color with a small white head. Has a nice fruit flavor with pretty heavy carbonation. Very good

L: Nice, light yellow with thin white head that quickly dissipates.

S: Something different...a kind of funk I'm not familiar with - but pleasant.

T: Sour up front, but finishes with nice fruit, slightly tropical. Sour fruit lingers for a bit. Very interesting.

F: Thin with dry finish.

O: Very interesting - perfect for hot summer days. The whole seems to greater than the sum of its parts. Would definitely buy again.

Ephemere pours a bright orangish amber with a fizzy white head tha falls to a thin foam leaving slippery lacing in it's wake.

Aroma is fruity as is expected from a fruit beer, smelling of currants and lemon.

Flavor is a tart mix of currant juice, coriander, orange, lemon and a biscuity malt. Bitterness is very low but tartness/sourness takes it's place in balancing the sweetness from the malt. Yeast males an appearance too with peppery/fruity esters as well.

Mouthfeel is light, with a rather aggressive amount of carbonation, not too much to be considered harsh however.

Overall a very nice fruit based beer, should be very pleasing to the wine crowd and one of the better fruit beers I've had.
