About the Legend

As its name suggests, Éphémère is an ephemeral ale that comes and goes with the seasons. It was developed as a series to feature a seasonal fruit in a refreshing, lightly spiced white ale. The label depicts a fairy, an ephemeral spirit associated with fruits picked at the peak of ripeness during each harvest season. She first appered in the spring of 2001 and has since been celebrated on a variety of seasonal fruit ales featuring applemust, cranberry, blackcurrant, peach, and raspberry. First created in 2003, the blackcurrant version returned to delight beer drinkers in 2009. This berry, also known as cassis, is often overlooked by Quebecers. It has an intense flavor and a deep, rich, and complex aroma.
