3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy reddish brown with a toffee, pillowy head. Aroma is of belgian yeast, orange peel, earth, and vanilla sweetness. The taste is medium sweet malt with some toast, with a slight bitter herbal finish. A bit light bodied considering how sweet this is. Nice to see an Ontario brewery playing with foraged ingredients!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is bread, yeast, banana, bubble-gum, and a little alcohol. Taste is banana, clove, and a little spice. Smooth, medium body with a gentle malty finish. Very much like a German wheat beer. Not my favorite Beaus product, but you have to try somethiing made with bogmyrtle!

from bottle. pours a very appropriate murky brown with a tan head. malty aromas, maybe some roasted nuts. pleasant taste predominantly malts but with a lacing of bitterness either from hops or the herbs and spices i’m not sure. Speeking of added herbs and spices, i personally don’t notice them in here. If i didn’t know they were there i wouldn’t taste them, thats probably a good thing though as it makes their blend more subtle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Vole. Pours a medium amber brown. Aroma is quite earthy with some malt and spicyness. Taste is similar with lots of malt sweetness and some interesting flavours backing it up. Whether it is earthyness or spicyness it definitely lives up to its name. An interesting beer but I’m not quite sure I really love it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ginger, sage, wheat, pumpkin, cinnamon on the nose. Pours a dark amber with a persistent creamy head. A very crisp sensation on the palate. Taste’s like a gingerbread house. If one could ’drink’ a gingerbread house.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from LCBO. This beer pours a murky unfiltered deep maroon colour. With a 1/2 inch off white head, that dissipates to nothing, with minimal lacing. The aroma is herbal, almost reminds me of a forest or meadow, with a strong yeast presence. The taste is very interesting, with notes of coriander, orange peel, lots of yeast, and something that I just cant put a finger on..must be the myrtle. This beer is very refreshing and crisp, the lack of hops is quite distinct...yet it still works. This is an excellent beer that I must try again!

Whoa! Unique. Cloudy pour. No head at all. Aroma of fruit and yeast, that continues on the palate. Short finish. Not something I'd buy again, but worth trying.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
660ml bottle from LCBO
Appearance: Dark copper to ruby in colour, thick creamy off white head, lingers but eventually fades. Some good lacing.
Aroma: Earthy hop aroma, some green apples, toffee notes in background
Flavour: Lovely malty profile, toffee and walnuts, nice earthy hop flavour comes through after couple seconds.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, chewy nutty texture, lovely smooth long finish, and a nice alcohol warmth in the aftertaste.
Overall: I was blown away by this beer from a solid brewer who rarely misses a beat.

Very disappointing. Beaus usually brews great beers. I cant even begin to describe how bad this one is because it brings back that disgusting taste.
