One Minute Review: Unibroue Ephemere Apple
Ephemere Apple – Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec
As a reward for finishing my most recent article (Editor’s note: 1,000 words over a week and a half- hardly a Asimovian pace) I plunged into a snifter of a summer favorite, Unibroue’s Ephemere Apple. An ale brewed with apple juice, the initial pour gives off the smell of an orchard of granny smiths. This refreshing prelude doesn’t set one up for disappointment- the beer has a full body to go with those crisp apple notes, making it both substantial and delicious. The Ephemere holds up quite well in heat, making it a superior drink to less interesting pilsners or kolsches for the coming days of triple digit-threatening heat. All of this while not being too sweet and fruit-driven to become sticky towards the end. The pleasantly middle-of-the-road ABV adds to its appeal as an afternoon quaffer. A four pack (a bit pricey, usually around $10.99) will serve as a nice change of pace for your July in between the Bud Lights you may find yourself surrounded by.
