Unibroue (Chambly, Québec) has officially released Éphémère Strawberry & Rhubarb as the newest installment in its Seasonal Éphémère Series.
Developed as the newest iteration of Unibroue’s “ephemeral ale that comes and goes with the seasons”, Éphémère Strawberry & Rhubarb (5.5% ABV) is the first Éphémère variant to feature two fruits. “Pleasant strawberry and rhubarb flavors” combine with Éphémère’s Belgian-style White Ale base to create an experience “reminiscent of the pie that unites these two fruits.”
“When the idea came to me to combine two fruits for the very first time in a beer from our Éphémère series, it was natural for me to lean towards a blend of strawberries and rhubarb. The herbaceous and tart profile of rhubarb pairs up perfectly with the sweet taste and smooth scent of ripe strawberries. I see the result as a keepsake reminiscent of Spring and Summer memories. I hope it will bring sweet moments to your lips as well!”
– Jerry Vietz, Master Brewer at Unibroue
