This was the beer that Val ordered at Uno’s. They had very few beers on tap that were 6% and below, so it did limit our options. But, this one looks interesting to me, even before I knew it was a relatively new beer to the States. Val is a sucker for a fruit beer, so I knew she would be interested in the beer, despite the fact that she ended up not liking it at all.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Available in Canada starting April 2014 and throughout the Unites States in Fall 2014. Limited seasonal release. Bottle of 750 mL and draught.”
Random: The Unibroue logo on the address bar looks like the Unilever logo. I assume that this isn’t intentional, but their beer doesn’t normally taste like soap to me.
This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated almost instantly. No lacing was left on the glass. The body was a light yellow color that was incredibly hazy. The nose was filled with tart cranberry and some wheat. The taste was reminiscent of a cranberry soda. There was tartness present as well. A limited amount of wheat was present as well. It had a thin body with moderate carbonation. The finish was long and fruity. This was an alright beer, but nothing amazing, but I ranked it highly at the time of drinking it because it went really well with my pizza. Cranberries are one of my favorite things, especially in the Fall or Winter, so this beer was exciting to order, but wasn’t anything all that exciting. With that being said, I wouldn’t rush have it again, but it was much better than other offerings from the Ephemere line.
