COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This orange-hued bock beer was brewed with a light rye malt addition, and offers up mingling aromas of mint and herbs. Adventurously spiced, the malty, sweet taste gets a pleasant cleansing lift from the addition of cooling peppermint and herbal juniper. Light orange peel adds citrus complements in the flavour undretones. Try it paired with gingerbread, spring rolls or traditionnal winter holiday fare. ---- Cette bock à la teinte orangée se caractérise au brassage par l’ajout léger de malts de seigle et par un joyeux mélange d’arômes de menthe et d’herbes. Audacieusement épicé, son goût malté et sucré est rehaussé par l’agréable fraicheur de la menthe poivrée et du genévrier qu’on y a introduits. Un zeste d’organe ajoute une nuance d’agrume aux flaveurs de fond. Cette bière s’harmonise au pain d’épice, aux rouleaux de printemps ou aux plats traditionnels des fêtes.

Ok but not super interesting, as always with Beau’s. Has some roast malt and a pretty good grain profile. Can’t pick out the spice but it may be ginger or something. Finishes with light sweetness. Ok package. Pours amber with decent head and lacing. Average carbonation. Tap at Winterbrewed.

smells lightly of malt and lemongrass from bottle. All juniper berry from glass. Taste juniper berry juice like then fades to sweet malt then far in the backround a little cooling from mint. A little warmth and a little hop bite on throat. Sticky but not 100% dry lips. After a while it smells and taste a bit like pepper, wood and smoked meat. cheer’s.

The beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thin rocky tan coloured head. The aroma is yeast, light fruit (almost tropical), grains, and some earthy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet fruit tones, yeast, grains and a hint of the spice. A decent bock.

samzim (205) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Scent of malt, spices, and honey. Clear golden colour. Flavours of ginger, cinnamon, honey, and malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. I would definitely buy this again.

TheJester (1874) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
600 mL bottle. I really with they’d get away from this awkwardly sized bottle - too much for one glass, but not enough for two. Nice coppery colour with a medium-sized head that fades fairly quickly to a ring. The aroma has citrus and spice, but is also overly sweet. The sweetness isn’t as overwhelming in the flavour, though. It’s actually quite pleasant, with nothing overpowering. Decent body.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of spices is not overly dominant but still quite interesting with peppermint not easily discernable but juniper and orange peel easier to detect. Taste is an easy drinking mix of juniper bay, orange peel with light spicy rye malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable drink with just enough complexity; this one probably falls in the hit category for Beau’s.

shaynsawchuk (482) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
600 mL bottle. Pours dark copper with a thick white cap. Sweet malty nose, rye, orange, honey, mint or thyme like woodsy herbs. Slight sweetness balanced by hop and a touch of acidity. Moderate to full carbonation with an above average body. Quite tasty.

Canmoore (260) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours a clear copper, and a large whit head. Aroma notes include orange peel, citrus, banana, herbal. Tasting notes include vegetables, orange peel, slight cinnamon, thick palate feel, and a medicinal finish. Definitely lives up to its description, heavy herbal palate in this beer! Does not taste like your everyday Bock!!

Spab (2390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear copper colour with small, light tan head. Aroma is quite bready with fruit and mellow spicing. Flavour is also big on bready malt with sweet fruit and ginger. No peppermint though. Average plus body. Solid.

Metalchopz (2286) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2014
Single at the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy thick lacing. Spicy nose with lots of bread malt notes. Eventually, fruits come out, like oranges with some light alcohol in the background. Rye bread taste with a mild sweetness and a little yeast in the finish. The spices are not as strong in the flavours and that is too bad. Still, an overall easy-drinking bock. Note: the peppermint seems controlled to previous version of this brew. I do not feel it.
