Pub House Brewery

 

Blueberries are good, and beer is good, so therefore blueberries + beer must also be good...right? Such was Bucky's logic in buying a 473 ml can of Pump House Brewery's Blueberry Ale. Blueberry Ale was 5.0% alcohol by volume, with a production date of January 30, 2013 printed on the bottom of the can. 

The Pump House Brewery Ltd. is located at 131 Mill Road in Moncton, New Brunswick, and offers five different brands of its own bottled beer, eight on tap and in kegs, and several other seasonal beers. Brewed in New Brunswick since 1999, Pump House bottled beer is available in every province except Saskatchewan and Quebec.

Blueberry Ale poured with a fizzy, very fine, white head that burned itself out in short order, leaving no spotting or lacing down the glass as it disappeared. The beer itself was slightly cloudy and yellow in colour. The beer's aroma and flavour are very simply described...sweet blueberry juice. As soon as I opened the can I was hit with a strong natural blueberry aroma. Likewise with the flavour...a sweet blueberry juice and not much else, which is fine with me since I was looking for blueberry when I bought the beer. Certainly no bitterness here, and a clean finish. Blueberry Ale was carbonated enough to remind you that you are drinking a beer and not pure blueberry juice, and I would describe it as light bodied. Overall, a refreshing change of pace, but given the sweetness I could enjoy one can, but that would be my limit. At $2.75 per 473 ml can Blueberry Ale was fairly priced.
