Éphémère Blackcurrant
Fruit Beer
Unibroue / Chambly, Quebec, Canada

Made by the Belgian-inspired Canadian brewery Unibroue, this offering proves you don't have to be a Belgian to brew like one. The white ale features cassis (blackcurrant), a dark berry native to central and northern Europe as well as Asia. Its appearance is a thing of beauty, with pale red, pinkish hues merging into a white head. An aroma of citrus and spice comes through thanks to the Belgian-style yeast used in this wheat ale base. Only a touch of sweetness is noticeable, as the dry, tart flavor of the fruit is allowed to dominate. Crisp and refreshing, this highly carbonated, Champagne-like, effervescent ale is packaged with a cork and cage. Uniborue also makes an Éphémère Apple beer.

Price: $7.99 for 750 ml
5.5 percent ABV
