At first I could not get beyond the soap taste. This is the thrills gum of beer. This beer isn’t terrible and there are some nice subtleties but I can’t recommend it to anyone.

Very aromatic aroma of lemongrass and ginger. Hazy yellow with white a white lace. Refreshing texture. Fruit, spice witg ginger and citrus flavour. Weird but interesting beer. Im a sucker for ginger else this beer probably wohld.t have rated so high.

Pour is orange cloudy and unfiltered with a long lasting white head. Aroma is heavy ginger with some orange zest. Taste has some hop and wheat with some lingering ginger and orange. Pretty light body with some carbonation. Not that bad .

341ml bottle pours a cloudy golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles slowly to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Has a potent ginger aroma with hints of orange rind. Taste is a sharp hoppy bitterness with a strong ginger spiciness with an underlying malt sweetness. Light bodied with some decent carbonation combined with the ginger leaves a massive tickle on the tongue. An interesting brew and recommended for at least one try.

Nice crisp wheat beer with a good spicy bite in the end. Wish these guys had this available more often.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Pepper’s Pub, Saint John NB. Appearance is unique. Completely opaque, very unfiltered, it was a cloudy orange. Aroma is yeast and spice. Taste is also unique. Up front there is lots of wheat and some hops, but some lemongrass and ginger creep in at the end. I didn’t love it or hate it, it was just kind of strange. Probably would go better with some spicy food.

some hops and some yeast in the aroma. thick, frothy head out of the tap. I had no idea what to expect with this one, but now, retroactively reading the description, I did not notice much for spices. Maybe some grass and some fruit, but most of the subtle flavors are masked by a fairly strong hop profile. With it’s light to medium body, this makes for an easy-drinking pale ale. However, if Pump House wants to make something unique, they will have to tone down the hops a bit to avoid drowning out the taste of whatever spices and adjuncts that are being used.

I tried this on tap at the new Inch Arran Artisanal Brewpub in Dalhousie NB. They are not brewing their own stuff just yet, but are planning to. For now, they have Picaroon’s and Pump House on tap, including this nice little seasonal. It looks a lovely light orange-gold, cloudy, with a golden bubbly head. Aroma is nicely wheaty with notable lemony accents. Spices come across more on the palate, with some mild heat at the back of the tongue, presumably from the ginger. Very refreshing, and a nice spin on an often dull style.
