Belgian wrote:Unibroue Éphémère Fraise & Rhubarbe / Strawberry & Rhubarb - bottle from LCBO pours good ripe field berry aromas, slightly hazy amber coat tinged with pink and tall white head.
Flavor leans to sweet with the wheaty/spicy underpinnings of an essentially Belgian-style blonde ale. The rhubarb notes carry in there somewhere with hints of fresh green tartness and a hint acidity.
This iteraton of Éphémère captures summer in the way pomme captures Autumn orchards, true to the ephemeral seasonal theme. Enjoy this well-chilled with a hard pour into a beer tulip or a white wine glass so it presents less sweet and fizzy.

Firm herbal bitter bite which lingers in the mouth. Frothy bubbles, quenching and keeps me wanting more. Bottled Dec 2017 but drinking very well right now (2 year shelf life).
It's been while since I've had anything really bitter but this one exploded my taste buds. Ranks 96 in the Belgian Ale category on RB. Well deserved and available at LCBO.com for $5.15.

that beer is so good
Ditto. I don't even blink at the 5 bucks a bottle. Considerably better than the Kriek des Jacobins that was here earlier this year.
