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.

Sweet, fruity, earthy and herbal in the nose. Hazy brown body is topped by a decent, if large bubbled, off-white head that lasts fairly well. Flavour is sweet and fruity up front, almost a cross between a saison and a dubbel - very Belgian inspired to me. Moderate bitterness and herbal, earthy notes round out the flavour. Medium body is filled by a gentle, expansive effervescence. Really great texture on the tongue. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at the LCBO on Danforth Rd. in December 2013.

lesifflebiere (1521) - 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.

codfishh (161) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
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.

simardsam (246) - 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.

wolffish (395) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
Plutôt intéressante celle-ci! Ça sent un peu plus que ça goûte mais tout est bien en place et juste assez épicé pour le style. C’est bien fruité mais toutefois un peu mince en bouche. À acheter de nouveau c’est certain!!

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle (750ml ceramic swing-top). Shared by GregClow with blankboy, jerc and tupalev. Deep mahogany with a solid beige creamy head. Dry medium-deep roast cereal grain with some dry floral/herbal bitterness. Taste follows, quite sweet caramel malt with some raisin and light nutshell and wildflower bitterness - on the light side, not boozy, subtle .... Average body, smooth and soft, gently bitter in the finish. A light, roasty, cold-weather treat - my hat is off to you, Beaus - well done!

C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours a hazy amber with a small, tan head. Nose is very spicy and herbal. Dark fruit, red licorice, raspberry, yeast funk, brown sugar. Mouth feel is chewy with medium carbonation. Taste is cherry, raspberry, grass, herbal, green apple, stale gummy bears, and burnt toast. Finishes slightly bitter and dry; vinous, grassy and sour. Unique brew that gives off a holiday vibe without turning to cinnamon and ginger.

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

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
600ml bottle. Pours Hazy brown/orange with average tan head. Vegetal, malty, tangy nose. Rather odd but not in a bad way. Sourish on the palate with vegetal wooden notes and a lemony zing.
