Rose hips are the seeded fruit of successfully pollinated wild rose plants (typically of Rosa canina of the Rosaceae plant family) that are native to various regions of North America, Asia, & Europe. Some other recognizable common names are Wild Rose, Dog Rose, & Wild Boar Fruit (just to name a few). The “hips” mature throughout the summer & are harvested in early October, ideally after the first night frost. Due to their high concentration of vitamin C, they have had numerous ethnobotanical uses that date back to the medieval times & can be found in a range of preparations like jams, jellies, fruit wines, teas, & baked goods.
The Pump House proudly presents this seasonal beer that was brewed with rose hips & orange peels to refreshingly kick off the summer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Cheers!
An ivory coloured head consisting of very fine bubbles is the first thing to suprise you after pouring the beer. The colour is a golden copper tone, stemming from specialty malts and the orange colour of the rose hips - no artificial colourings were used.
The aroma is fruity and a tad spicy. Pleasant sweet notes of rose hip, banana and grapefruit dominate the bouquet, complemented by a hint of cloves and the sweetness of malt.
The beer is immensely full-bodied and features an almost creamy smooth mouthfeel. Immediately noticeable is the fruitiness, leaning a bit towards citrus. Hop bitterness is barely perceptible, there is just enough to counterbalance the maltiness and the sweetness of the rose hips. The distinct flavour of the rose hips nicely rounds up the taste profile.
This beer is an ideal refreshment on a hot summer day and pairs well with all summery food. Barbecued pork or sausages, a lightly chilled garden salad with a vinaigrette or just a plate of cold cuts, a fresh baguette and assorted salads will provide
you with a combination of flavours you will truly enjoy. 4.5% ABV
