Éphémère Cassis / Black Currant

Éphémère Cassis / Black Currant (5.5%): a fruit beer from Canada. This is my second black currant flavored ale after Lindemans Cassis.

  • Pours a beautiful pink-orange liquid. Truly awesome.
  • Agreeable fruity aroma. I "feel" black currants, grapes and grapefruits.
  • Taste is bitter, quite citrus-like.
  • Aftertaste is more sugary (think sweet oranges). I also detect a slight wheat aftertaste.
  • Smooth buzz.
  • Nice bottle/label.


Verdict: an excellent fruit beer. Highly recommended.


Grade:A
