Quebec brewery Unibroue has announced the latest addition to its Éphémère beers, this one with the taste of ripe pears.
Unibroue’s newest creation has a pale gold color and a medium, sustained effervescence, according to the company, with notes of pear, sweet rolls and spices. “The new Éphémère Pear is a Belgian style white ale,” says Unibroue Brewmaster Jerry Vietz. “Its mild ripe pear taste is complemented by a distinctive wheat acidity.”
“The Éphémère Pear is great in a variety of cocktails,” adds Sylvain Bouchard. “And beer loving chefs and gourmets won’t be able to resist the new recipes we’ve concocted, such as the Brie en croûte with caramelized pears and beer, or the fish tacos with pear salsa.”
After a successful launch and positive reviews across Canada, Éphémère Pear has been made available in the US since mid-May, the company says, in 750-mL cork and cage bottles, and on tap at various bars and restaurants across the country.
This new Éphémère is a seasonal release, and will be available for a limited time only. Pricing varies by state and retailer, but the average price a 750-mL single bottle is $7.99-$8.99.
