MONTRÉAL, June 29, 2016 — Unibroue announces the launch of a new member of its Éphémère fruit beer series, enhanced with the unique taste of blueberries.

Like its previous iterations, Éphémère Blueberry is a limited release, just in time to celebrate the arrival of summer. Its luscious red colour, with hints of purple, is beautifully adorned with creamy, pinkish foam. “The beer wort used for Éphémère Blueberry is made from home-grown blueberries,” reveals Brewmaster Jerry Vietz. “Éphémère Blueberry is a Belgian style white ale brewed with fruit, with mid-sized bubbles and bold effervescence. It has a balanced bouquet of berries and citrus, with a dominant blueberry flavour and a subtly spicy finish that's delightfully refreshing.”

“The unique taste of blueberries can be a delicious addition to any number of recipes, “adds Sylvain Bouchard, Unibroue's Beer Sommelier. “Éphémère Blueberry can be used as the base ingredient for a sangria, for instance, or can even replace milk in pancake batter.” This fruity beer is also a great choice to accompany pork medallions in port sauce, duck magret, or even a dessert such as cheesecake or profiteroles.

Éphémère Blueberry will be simultaneously released throughout Canada and the United States. In the US it will be available starting mid-June in 750 mL cork and cage bottles (MSRP $7,99 - $8,99), and at select bar and restaurant locations in draught format. Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience the magic of blueberries, as this new Éphémère will only be available for a short time.
