Unibroue Ephemere Poire (Pear)

Unibroue Ephemere Pear. Ale Brewed with pear juice, coriander, orange peel, and with natural flavors added. 5.5% ABV. Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec, Canada.

Slightly hazy, bright golden color, slim white head.

In the nose: soft, spicy, fruity, delightful. Pear all up in there.

In the mouth: More of that and smooth as can be. Wheat malt texture dominates, pear stays quiet for a bit, but rises in prominence. Lightly spiced, coriander, orange peel and more. Lovely stuff, and easy drinking. A refreshing fruit wit, indeed.

From the website: L’Éphémère Poire présente un doux parfum de poire Bartlett combiné à des flaveurs subtiles d’agrumes et d’épices et vous procurera une expérience sensorielle mémorable et rafraîchissante. Ce pur délice est offert pour une durée éphémère, tâchez d’en profiter.

Um, I forgot to hit "translate from the French", I guess. Well ...pear presents a perfume of Bartlett pears and combines with subtle flavors and ....spices...and a memorable sensory experience and refreshment. And stuff. See, my two years of high school French paid off.
