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.

600ml bottle. Nice clear amber body, low head, not much of a retention. Aroma is sweetish, hops, malt, caramel, quiet herbal and refreshing. Taste is malty, sourly, medicinal, sweet, a little oily. OK beer.

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.

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.

600 mL bottle. Pours a dark cola brown colour, with a fluffy beige head, minimal retention. The nose is full of yeast, dark bread, piquant herbs, a little banana and a sweet malty biscuit note. The taste is sweet and herbaceous with an earthy bitterness, but only slight. Finish turns a little sour as these Belgian strong inspired beers tend too. Medium to full bodied with medium to high carbonation. Tasty, a good dark beer for people who think they don’t like dark beer.

lukin (446) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
bottle. Pours deep ruby, head quickly disappeared. Aroma of banana, yeast, malts. Taste is sweet, almost a cross between a dunkelweisse and a dubbel. Interesting and good.

OntBeerDrinker (430) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
3 finger head that go’s away a few seconds or so later. Carbonated. Smell’s kind foresty(twigs,ect)juicy and mabye a litle spice or something. Taste is kinda mudy like with some juiciness some twig,stick,forsty like tate. A little spice/yeast and stuff like that. Heavy bodied,leaves a little sour saliva in my mouth and a few sips have a bit of a alcoholic burn for a few second’s. Odd in an interesting way. Different bottle then picture. Cheer’s!

Tap at Volo. Very cloudy amber pour, thin white head. Aroma is pretty yeasty, almost a dunkel character. Little bit floral, nutmeg and sweet maltiness. Medium body. Flavour is bready, little bit nutty and some molasses. Clean finish. Nothing extreme going on here but nice balanced brew.

Bread, citrus, floral. Characteristics of wheat beers in flavour and aroma but maltier

Glass bottle from the LCBO. Pours a coppery red with a little head that dissipates nearly immediately. Smell is sweet and a bit floral, definite caramel coming through with maybe a tiny bit of cinnamon. Palate is perfect for me, some carbonation that lingers a bit but provides a nice and not overly harsh sensation on the palate. Taste is pretty good, medium sweetness and a little bitterness, definitely goes more towards the sweet side. The added spices are definitely noticeable and very interesting. Can’t say I’ve ever had bog myrtle or sweet gale before. Aftertaste is a bit sweet, but disappears quickly. A decent beer overall.
