unibroue éphémère cranberry

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

it’s been a while since I was able to score a bottle of unibroue’s éphémère cranberry.

  • however, they have a stash over at handy deli that no one seems to be picking up.  more for me!
  • you see their apple version of this brew all over the place, which is pretty tasty in its own right.  they also have a black currant variation.
  • however, the cranberry is my favorite – it has a very clean wheat back with a hint of cranberry on the nose and, as usual, fantastic carbonation that ties it all together.  beeradvocate dorks complain about its sweetness, but it wasn’t noticeably sweet to me.
  • I’m not even a big fan of wheat beers, but I would bring this to any outdoor summer event in a heartbeat.  it would also be a great option for introducing a lady friend to the great world of craft beer.
  • I can see this beer being a big hit by adding straight cranberry juice to secondary in a straight wheat and carbing it up nice and heavy for a tart, crisp result.  time to get brewing…
