Unibroue Emphemere

I have had a lot of different fruits beer, but nothing like this ale brewed with apple juice, coriander and curaco peels. It's nothing like a Framboise. This ale is a bit stronger at 5.5% abv and isn't nearly as fruity. Emphemere is not overly sweet, but is tart with nice green apples. This pours a hazy darkish brownish kind of gold with a bubbly head that is off white. It has very nice crisp apple scents with a mild spice note. Now the taste is something very different to my taste buds. I found it to be a bit sour and candy like, like a sour apple hard candy or lollipop. Good taste but this apple ale has more bubbles than your average fruit beer. That's a good quality. This Canadian brew has a crisp apple candy finish that is crisp yet nice. I'm not saying this is over the top in the bubble department, but this has more than the average has. I like this but it grew on me after two or so, which is okay, and not every beer should knock your taste buds out and wow you on the first taste. Some you should dig into the flavors and find out you like it, and you will feel more like a beer connoisseur when you find that you like it. This is good on the fist sip but after a while becomes much better. This is one to try. Go for this one! Cheers! Please drink responsibly!
