Hazy and veiled copper reddish color with moderate activity. Gets murky with the yeast. Foamy pink 3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with light legs and not much swirl effect. Flavors of wild berries, sweet grains, Belgian yeast, and herbal hops. Slick and smooth full body with extra crispy carbonation, almost champagne like. Light to medium strength finish of sour fruits, with notes of wheat grains and a balanced final of floral hops. So this is one of the most sour version of all other Éphémère, probably made from all the sour craze these days. Good freshness and ends pretty clean, highly accessible. Great summer beer. Not my favorite, tending to be less fresh and complex, still a very good fruit beer overall.
