COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This orange-hued bock beer was brewed with a light rye malt addition, and offers up mingling aromas of mint and herbs. Adventurously spiced, the malty, sweet taste gets a pleasant cleansing lift from the addition of cooling peppermint and herbal juniper. Light orange peel adds citrus complements in the flavour undretones. Try it paired with gingerbread, spring rolls or traditionnal winter holiday fare. ---- Cette bock à la teinte orangée se caractérise au brassage par l’ajout léger de malts de seigle et par un joyeux mélange d’arômes de menthe et d’herbes. Audacieusement épicé, son goût malté et sucré est rehaussé par l’agréable fraicheur de la menthe poivrée et du genévrier qu’on y a introduits. Un zeste d’organe ajoute une nuance d’agrume aux flaveurs de fond. Cette bière s’harmonise au pain d’épice, aux rouleaux de printemps ou aux plats traditionnels des fêtes.

Poured a nice shiny brass colour. Thin off-white head. Leaves moderate lacing as drunk Light spiciness on the nose. Some roasted oats. Taste wise, this has some spice box, and hints of a lemon lime tingle at the beginning of the swallow. The spicy herbs don’t overwhelm the experience. Quite a nice Bock.

Hmmm, a minty beer just the thing for a drinking lunch. My your breath is minty says my boss. Well, not really. The goat, as I will call this beer, pours a hazy whiskey red-brown, with a beige head. Nose of this is dominated by hits of mint, with a little orange lurking in the back. The taste some malty cereal, but then the mint. Not overpowering, but omnipresence, and rolls right into the aftertaste. I like it. The juniper gets lost somewhere in the mix, as does much of the orange, but overall good beer. I always appreciate, though not always love, Beau’s unique beers. Thanks.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep copper with a big off white head that fades slowly. Nose is malts, spice and some banana. Starts sweet malt and toffee flavour with a backend dominated and dried by peppermint. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation. Nice sipping beer.

600ml bottle. Hazy copper pour, small lightly beige head. A nice caramel malt aroma, quite malt forward, reminds me alot of a nice german bock, with some ample spicing. Im getting notes of ginger, citrus peel, cardamon, and turkish delight. Flavor is again quite malt forward and the spices die off leaving a pleasant bready malt. Finish is very lightly bitter, with a subtle herbacious, and medicinal note. Some light grasses, and herbs linger......an interesting take on a bock. I would honestly like to try the base bock without the spices.

600ml bottle. Clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar, honey and herbs. Taste is cough syrup, bread, fruit, mint and spices with grassy and earthy notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky texture.

wilderthanyou (752) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 27, 2014
Pours a burnt orange colour with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma is mint, juniper berry, spice, herbal, medical, spearmint. The flavour is also mint up front, sweet malty notes, toffee, light orange, medical herbs. An odd beer, not bad though, im enjoying it, but I probably wont buy it again.

solidfunk (3009) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Ok but not super interesting, as always with Beau’s. Has some roast malt and a pretty good grain profile. Can’t pick out the spice but it may be ginger or something. Finishes with light sweetness. Ok package. Pours amber with decent head and lacing. Average carbonation. Tap at Winterbrewed.

smells lightly of malt and lemongrass from bottle. All juniper berry from glass. Taste juniper berry juice like then fades to sweet malt then far in the backround a little cooling from mint. A little warmth and a little hop bite on throat. Sticky but not 100% dry lips. After a while it smells and taste a bit like pepper, wood and smoked meat. cheer’s.

The beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thin rocky tan coloured head. The aroma is yeast, light fruit (almost tropical), grains, and some earthy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet fruit tones, yeast, grains and a hint of the spice. A decent bock.
