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.

600 ml Bottle. Clean copper brown color and generous head. Herbal aromas, saison yeast with a hint of caramelised malts. Taste is quite ’’Saison’’ style with a touch of that special herb they put in, the sweet gale... ( have no clue what it is). The match with hops is quite interesting. This marriage is enjoyed mostly in the dry aftertaste! But a bit shy if you ask me. Ambitious one! keep it up!

Pours a deep copper with an average off-white head. Aroma has some fruit, caramel malt and light spices. Tastes of caramel malt, herbal notes, spices and a decent bitter finish. Medium body.

Listigovers (438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
I’m a big hop fan, but I liked this one! Unique twist on herbal beer, still carries decent bitterness, wild and herbal plant flavours add a uniqueness that a wild yeast would add to a sour. In the end it still tastes like a beer, but with some spicy herbal flavours you just can’t put your finger on. Not overpowering.

BiereLuc (1083) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Bière cuivrée, rougeâtre, limpide, coiffée d’une mousse crème à fines bulles. L’effervescence surprend. Le nez offre un sacré bouquet, d’abord difficile à cartographier, puis, on décèle des pointes de miel, d’herbes, de cassonade et de raisins. En bouche, la carbonatation dérange par son excès. Lorsque le jeu se calme, on découvre des fruits rouges, un peu de caramel et une belle rondeur. C’est agréable.

Metalflake (35) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
600ml bottle bought at Le Gobelet in Dorion, QC. Poured into a tulip, colour is an attractive deep, hazy red-orange. 1cm head that dissipated quickly, no lacing on the glass. Aroma is full of berries and herbs - I didn’t get as much coriander as others here seem to have, but it’s there. Taste is sweet, malty with little bitterness. Finish is slightly tart, with a mild aftertaste of red currants and spice. Overall not my favourite style of beer, but drinkable nonetheless.

simardsam (186) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Orange brûlée aux reflets rougeâtres, trouble, avec un col de mousse crème/orangé assez épais qui laisse rapidement place à une simple auréole. Nez épicé, sucré et malté. Goût fruité (petits fruits), sucré et épicé, avec presque aucune amertume.

Bottle (600 ml). Split 2-ways with JulienHuxley.

Appearance: Slightly hazy reddish brown with a small to medium persistent beige head and some lacing.

Aroma: Coriander, quite herbal forward, light caramel and light citrusy notes.

Taste: Moderate sweetness. Quite spicy. Herbal presence, caramel, light citrusy notes and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Lingering spicy finish.

Overall: Not the kind of beer I like because it’s dominated by spices. Not awful, but average drinkability at best. Ok.
