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 and herbal. Lack of hops is obvious and distinctive. If you crave a hoppy beer this one won’t do it, but it’s a very interesting candidate for when in a curious mood.

Bottle in Brew Box. Reddish brown with off-white head that dissipated very quickly. Spicy herbal aromas with hints of caramel and biscuit. Very herbal flavour, with lingering biscuit and caramel flavours. Very low carbonation, seems rather flat. Interesting.

Ressemble à une swomp. J’en ai entendu parlé en lisant un article sur le monsieur qui cueuille la myrte sauvage pour beau’s et ça m’avais charmé : malheureusement la bière ne m’impressionne pas si tout. Basée sur une double de style belge, elle est plutôt mince et peu goûteuse. Locale et expérimental, recette à revoir.

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!!

600 ml Bottle. Clean copper brown color and generous head. Herbal aromas, saison yeast with a hint of caramelised malts. Taste is quite ’’Saison’’ style with a touch of that special herb they put in, the sweet gale... ( have no clue what it is). The match with hops is quite interesting. This marriage is enjoyed mostly in the dry aftertaste! But a bit shy if you ask me. Ambitious one! keep it up!

Pours a deep copper with an average off-white head. Aroma has some fruit, caramel malt and light spices. Tastes of caramel malt, herbal notes, spices and a decent bitter finish. Medium body.

I’m a big hop fan, but I liked this one! Unique twist on herbal beer, still carries decent bitterness, wild and herbal plant flavours add a uniqueness that a wild yeast would add to a sour. In the end it still tastes like a beer, but with some spicy herbal flavours you just can’t put your finger on. Not overpowering.
