Éphémère (Cassis / Black Currant)

Orangey, peach body, with clarity, but a little chill haze. Some good carbonation, but the initially slightly pinkish head disappears almost instantly and consequently no lacing.
Acidic fruit flavors in the nose, but the specific blackcurrant smell does not come through until the beer warms.
Good, tart acidity in the initial tastes that slowly mellows. There is not much else other than the tart acidity in the taste.
Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but at the same time refreshing.
One of those beers that needs to be drunk in context, perhaps at Christmas, or as an aperitif or on a summer picnic. Not a huge favorite of mine, and somewhat removed from beer, but an interesting novelty.
