Unibroue Éphémère (Apple)

I usually start with the appearance of the beer, but with this one, the smell of tart green apple just smacks you in the nose, it’s hard to avoid. Very much along the lines of a sour apple Jolly Rancher candy, but a hint of earthiness creeps through after the initial apple shock wears off.
The beer pours a cloudy light yellow-orange with a slight white head.
The flavor is not nearly as potent as the aroma. In fact, here the earthiness and the spices come through, with the tartness tingling your tongue. It needs just a bit more body to it, as it seemed a bit watery at times.
For me, it actually paired surprisingly well with the completely unplanned chicken mango pineapple kabobs and coconut rice.
