This raspberry ginger wheat ale from Kenora is if nothing else, unorthodox.

This ale pours the colour of grapefruit juice and apple cider mixed together, with gentle, fine head.

With notes of bitter cider, ginger spice, and raspberry, the malt is well-camouflaged.

On the tongue, cranberries, orange zest, rhubarb, and ginger leap to the fore, a light maltiness following.

A tart but balanced finish, though there is a slight film left that benefits from a glass of water.

Definitely different and markedly so, but its tanginess and tartness may put off some swillers. Still, a solid summer offering that safely avoids syrupiness.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
