228/1502) Home:  Pengo Pally by the Bush Pilot Brewing Company of Ontario:  **1/2;  6.5%, which is mild by Bush Pilot's standards;  a saison with Arctic herbs brewed "in co-operation with Nickel Brook Brewery";  brewed with barley, wheat flakes and hops as well as crowberry and Labrador Tea which are wild herbs, hand picked in Nunavik;  cloudy, fluffy persistent head;  mildly spiced, peppery  nose typical of a saison but with strong herbed notes;  citrusy, vegetal, almost bitter after taste;  interesting and unusual;

This beer was inspired by Johnny May, a Canadian legend and Inuk bush pilot.  Pengo Pally in Inuktitat means, "I miss you" and was written on the side of his plane.  Suggested viewing is "The Wings of Johnny May".
