Before heading to the airport, I popped open this bottle of Éphémère Pear and took several sips of it before heading out. While I didn't take any notes, I roughly recall finding, like the Éphémère Apple,* that sometimes it tasted good and sometimes it tasted bad.

Overall, there's no guarantee that one would like this beer if one typically enjoys ciders or fruity beers such as Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. However, I would be willing to suggest the Éphémère series to anyone who enjoys the Organic Fruit Beer series by Samuel Smith's (e.g., Apricot, Cherry, Raspberry).

*I had a sip of the Éphémère Apple on 20160225.
