Sweet Gale, Yarrow, Dried Heather Flowers, Rose Hips, and Cranberries comprise its balanced fruit-and-herb bouquet, while a Maple-Syrup addition rounds out the complex character of the beer.

rodenbach99 (3489) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Une bouteille de la batch 8358 embouteillée le 27 novembre 2013. Une bière jaune avec une mousse épaisse blanche. Un nez de grain, de blé, de céréale et de houblons américains. Une bouche moyennement épicée avec de drôles de saveurs de grains. Elle goûte le grain bio (malheureusement).

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Belle bière couleur de miel, bien limpide et coiffée d’un épais col bien mousseux nappant le verre d’une dense dentelle. Des arômes très intéressants d’herbe verte et de fleurs. Elle est bien amère, très peu sucrée et peu acide. Elle est lisse, très effervescente, de corps moyen, très légèrement astringente et se termine sur une très longue amertume modérément mordante accompagnée de forts jolis arômes.

SlovakSniper (3698) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Embouteillée le 27 novembre 2013, cette bière profondément dorée est bellement coiffée par une mousse qui génère une dentelle épaisse et bien large. Le nez est un mélange de fleurs séchées et médicinales, de jus de framboises et de fond de poche d’un herboriste qui capote sur les assainisseurs d’air ambiant. Le goût est un méli-mélo de tisane, de thé des bois, de fruits déshydratés et d’herbes bien amères. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-faible et bien agressé par le jeu fou des bulles. En finale, ce sont des saveurs variées de plantes de qualité qui me laissent une longue impression amère.

MarkoR (638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a hazy golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, spices. Taste is pretty much the same. Quite refreshing.

Bendrixian (1293) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Hazy golden yellow colour. I’m surprised by the how aggressive the aroma is. it jumps out of the glass with pungent hops and freshly cut Cannabis, herbal grassy and that vanillin note from the ’Myrica gale’. It also has that sort of pineapple citrus note to it. More of the same bitter hoppy and grassy notes complemented by some light vanillin like quality. A very interesting beer that I was worried about trying but super glad I did!

robinvboyer (3407) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
650ml bottle from the lcbo. A very dry, herbal beer. Some great dry, grassy, green hoppy notes, with some minerals, and cereals. Quite floral, and herbaceous. Light honey, and more grassy, green hops in the finish. Quite bitter, but very pleasant. A nice summer quaff.

Frothmeister (626) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale orange with a light tan coloured head. The nose is very pine heavy, with light wood notes, and herbs. Taste wise, it’s surprisingly herb heavy. Dry, with a rosemary/thyme hybrid taste, resinous hops, light woody notes, and an interesting floral bitterness. This is a nice change of pace. Decent stuff. I’d buy it again.

rob6239 (671) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Pretty good stuff. Pours hazy amber colour with good white head that laces glass well from bottle. Aroma is light, earthy, musty. Tasting brings out some pine, a bit of soapy hops.

kevinsenn (1374) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral, spicy, with pine, and something sharp and "tangy" I can’t put my finger on; it’s quite strong. I don’t taste that "something" in the taste, in which all the ingredients seem to balance out to give a grainy, fruity, floral taste with a bitter finish.
