COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong & dark beer, inspired by the Alfred bog, is our very first seasonal offering. Featuring bog myrtle, or sweet gale, harvested from the wilds of northern Quebec. This ancient herb was used in brewing hundreds of years ago and offers bitterness, a sweet aroma and herbal spicy notes.

Ambrée. Sucré. Florale/herbacé. Très Fruité. Baie, probablement la myrte. Épicé. Fine amertume végétale. Légère trame de caramel de l'entré à la finale. Très intéressante.

bottle. Poured hazy brown with a beige diminishing head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt with an herbal note. Medium body, prickly carbonation with a tart finish. Flavour of caramel malts with a vegetal hoppiness, notes of yeast and peppery spice. Alcohol well hidden.

Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a hazy brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has light tart fruit with grass, light spice and a bread backing. Flavor has a light tartness with grass, sweet grains and a bit of bread backing.

Bottle given to me by my colleague’s boyfriend back in Canada that I later shared at the Downtown Inn post-grand tasting party for RBWG. Full, tannish orange pour. Nose of pleasant caramel and cereal notes. Pleasant flavor has caramel malt, cereal, slight earthiness, and a surprise tartness. Lip smacking good. The tartness is sure a surprise in a good way. Crazy.

vadie (520) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Ambrée, presque orange avec un petit col beige qui reste longtemps. L’arôme du malt, du myrte, et un peu du caramel. Le goût est d’abord du malt légèrement sucré puis un goût terreux. Du myrte, j’imagine. Le goût terreux est pas mal fort. Très unique.

You’re not gonna win a lot of friends brewing beer with bog weed. And that’s what I like about this brew. Pours busted nose brown with a luscious one finger cap. Flavour is unlike anything I’ve had before. Down side is a coppery, pennies in water aftertaste. A true herbal offering, almost jarring in the way it presents itself. Clearly not a session beer, this is one to sip on & shake your head about. Like hearing a Grateful Dead song at a hip hop show. Recommended.
