Unibroue Ephemere Bluet (Blueberry)

Unibroue Ephemere Blueberry. (Or, as the French say, Bluet.) Belgian style fruit flavored wheat ale. 5.5% all. by vol.

Pale crimson coloring, towering, crystalline head. Looking lovely.

In the nose: Sweet, fruity, blueberry-licious. Soft and wheat-y.

In the mouth: Light and breezy, still sweet and fruity, but with a side dose of tart. Easy-drinking, and flush with the blueberry. If a blueberry wheat is your thing, by all means, go for it. I won’t return to this one very often, though.

This one was debuted last year and I got a keg of it for Acadia. It lasted a weekend, where other Ephemere offering took much longer to leave our traplines. The crowds those nights were really into, coming back again and again for "the blueberry beer." I had too large of an inventory in the cooler to buy another one, and still wish I had.
