COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first release of our "Native" line was brewed using Vermont grown wheat, hops and ginger. Yes, you can grow ginger in Vermont. Do it the hard way, go Native.

Pours a hazy still into a tulip. Ginger aromas. Soft with ginger and dusty yeast. Yuk.

This is a pretty assertive offering where the general essence and body are reminiscent of a strong IPA. But when you get done swishing it around and begin tasting it, it is evident that it is not hops, but spicy ginger that fills the mouth. The alcohol was well hidden, I thought. I couldn’t really get any sense of the profile of the wheat beer itself, as everything was centered around the ginger. Not bad.

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
A blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet grassy malt with ginger. In mouth, a nice fruity malt with light grassy hops, faint ginger, nice.

AdamJackson (2870) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pale yellow. Slightly cloudy appearance. Aroma of lemon skin and bright spicy ginger. Very light taste. Touch of ginger and lemon and honey. Has a spicy witbier taste.

annunz123 (880) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Way better than I expected. Not nearly as over-the-top as most ginger beers--this is a beer first and foremost with a little ginger spice balancing out the flavor and the finish. First thing I’ve tried from this brewery--will try more if I can get my hands on it.

northropfrye (2303) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
This was better than expected as the ginger was pretty subtle (thankfully - not a fan of ginger beers). Instead this was a lot like a nice weizenbock. Sweet wheat, candy and malts. Tasty beer. Thanks JM for this one.
