Another very interesting brew from the Quebec based Unibroue company. New for 2002, the second in their (hopefully) ongoing series of different beers. Each year a new brew is released under the Ephémère name. This year's version is a "strong beer on lees with apple must." A very intriguing brew indeed.

Served in traditional 750ml corked bottle that gives a solid pop on opening. It pours extremely well and is reminiscent of their Blanche de Chambly wheat styled ale (moderately cloudy) albeit with a slightly more golden hue in the color. Head size starts huge, at roughly 2," slowly disappating to a solid, rich, white foamy head of about 1/6" height. Moderate amount of lacing is left on the goblet as I continue to drink.

Aroma is very interesting with a very pungent aroma of apples (Granny Smith??). Taste wise, this is a real winner. Don't let the concept of fruit in your beer scare you off. I've has several lambics in the past of which few truly excited me, however, this brew, complete with apple must is a great exception.

Bubbly, robust and very drinkable, Ephémère takes a page from the Blanche de Chambly book, adds a little fruity kick plus a warmth which makes this quite a smooth release.

This one won't be around for long, so if you're looking for a slight change of pace once in a while, this one should put a smile on your face.

Bon Chance!!
