3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ beerbistro: Dayna’s Beer of the Moment, and highly recommended by our server. He gave us the whole background on the bog myrtle and we couldn’t resist. Comes quite dark, red in colour, decent foamy off-white head. Aroma was complex with lots of spice, to be honest I had no notepad and I chased it with a few more, so trying to remember the subtle nuances ain’t happenin’. I can tell you that the flavour was quite nice, very reminiscent of Maudite, but with no aftertaste to speak of. Quick hit of bitterness on the tongue, but quickly makes way for a nice subtle sweetness, slight watery, lots of spice and pepper. It’s actually very interesting and our entire party of three all enjoyed it thoroughly. Good work, guys!

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

600ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy dark brown with a huge beige head that takes a while to settle. Nose is yeast and cloves. taste is quite spicy but not as clove heavy as the nose would indicate and a cola like sweetness.. Medium body with lively carbonation.
