Unibroue Ephemere

So let me just preface this by saying I had this beer at Spitzer's Corner and have been looking for it EVER SINCE. Seriously, that was almost six months ago...Anyways, image my surprise when last week I was looking for some beer to bring to a BBQ when I saw this little gem sitting on the beer shelf at Whole Foods. My inner monologue went something like this:

"That can't be it, can it?" "But, how? How can my search have been as simple as going to Whole Foods?" "Is this really it? Has my search come to an end?!"

I think you can now fully understand how shocked I was. So I decided that even if I was mistaken I should just buy this beer anyways in the spirit of trying new things. Luckily, I was right; the instant I popped off that beer cap I knew I had found it.  A smooth, light wheat beer infused with apple and vanilla flavors. Guys, calm down, I know you are jumping at the bit to get your hands on this beer. Seriously, though it's one of my favorite beers of all time and if you like Blue Moon, you will love this. You know how Blue Moon has that hint of orange? Well this has the same hint, but with APPLE. Ugh, delicious!!!

Before finding it at Whole Foods, I had searched high and low, I even called the distributor! However, I can assure those in the NYC area that you can find this beer at the Whole Foods on Houston and Bowery. This is a perfect summer beer and a MUST TRY!

Thanks to this person's flickr page for the picture of the beer above.

Dell, if you like Blue Moon you will love this! Seriously, it's so good. It's a beer that you can have 1-2 of and perfect for a little day drinking!

Try this beer with melted caramel rimmed and drizzling down a pilsner glass. Great twist for the Thanksgiving holiday.

This is one of my favorite beers of all time. It's good to know that others outside of Canada also love this beer. I've described it to others as the unholy union of beer and apple pie. If you like this beer, I would recommend trying Wild Rose Wrapsberry Ale, which is brewed right here in Calgary, AB, and has a lovely raspberry flavor to it!
