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.

Spicy aroma, an appearance that fits the name. The taste is spicy , sweet, and sour all at once. An absolute delight in your mouth

The best gruit I have drank so far (I rated their Bog Father a bit higher but that is a hybrid not a pure gruit). This might not be to everyone’s taste but they got the gruit right and balanced it well with the malt (I have drank some truly horrible gruit). A mild caramel nose followed by an earthy bitterness and some spice in the aftertaste. I don’t think gruit will ever take back its place from hops either with the general public or in my heart but when done well can produce a very nice drinkable beer like this one.

Ferris (7068) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle - Light grain an raisin, soap and herbal notes. Cloudy brown with a rich beige head. Spicy, herbal, and malty. Not my thing.

600ml bottle from the brewery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario.
Bottled on November 13, 2014. Batch #3956. Muddy brown in colour with a thin white head, little lacing. The aroma is fruity, herbal, spice and bread. The flavour is light bitter, some spice, herbal, earthy. Finishes long, sweet to start turning herbal.

Pours a hazy brown thick fluffy white head, aroma has some sweat bready malt and dark fruit. Flavor has a strong malt background with some peppery notes and a slight sourness. Enjoyable beer.

cargo150 (959) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Couleur brune ambrée completement opaque avec un mince col qui se dissipe rapidement. Aromes de fruits acre, de caramel, d’herbe, très terreux. Mal balancé... Désagréable a boire...

worldbeertaste (1730) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Smells of yeast with moist leaves, caramel, cloves. Marky brown with a white lacy head. Tastes of ripe vegetables with berries, caramel and yeasty finish. Barley. Tastes like a barley wine but with less sweetness. Herbal

Tessic (921) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
This one poured a cloudy amber colour with a nice creamy head. Some lacing. Scents include salon perm solution, very ripe fruit and apricot. First swig was creamy with light carbonation. Flavours of ripe fruit and a little caramel. Finish was a little bitter with that ripe fruit flavour lingering.

lesifflebiere (1414) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Liquide dont la couleur est au croisement du rouge, de l’orangé et de l’acajou. Couronne de mousse crème. Le nez est épicé, rondement malté, avec des houblons pour terminer. En bouche elle est savoureuse, fruitée, ramenant des baies et du sucre cuit au premier plan. Une excellente bière pas juste fruitée mais aussi d’une belle complexité, avec des saveurs rarement retrouvées dans ce genre de breuvage. Très agréable.

Johnsense (953) - - AUG 25, 2014
Brownish pour, decent sized head. Muted aroma, carael, herbs, (myrtle?). Roasted malt, caramel, herbs and spice, lemon, actually quite different, if not complex. Medium body. Definitely unique.
