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.

An orange amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, intense spruce needles, mint, aromatic, alcohol warmth. In mouth, a nice sweet malt with nice spruce tips, mint, juniper berries, nice and smooth. Bottle at the Wellington Gastropub, Jan 7 2012, 14$.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Deep amber pour. The nose is fairly spicy and fruity. Sort of gruit-like with a bit of light earthiness and some soft fruitiness. A bit of peppery character and some lingering rosemary-like herbal notes. Interesting.

2012-12-31. Crisp dark orangey amber body, nice foamy beige head that fades leavig a nice beige lace on the glas. 3+ Really interesting aroma and flavour profile. Mint-orange melante in the aroma, mild fruit. 7+ Flavour has similar orange-mint melange, hints of juniper (maybe?) giving way to a fruity sweetish middle with just enough balancing bitterness. 8+ Very smooth average plus bodied palate. Did not expect this flavour combination to work when it was described but it manages to find a near perfect balance between the mint and orange. I quite enjoyed the fine line it walked. Tasty stuff. Not sure if I’d love it as much a second time but it apparently tickled me today! Bottle at Volo, Toronto, shared by Beaus_stuntman

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
650ml bottle shared at Burger Bar with garthicus and blankboy. Bottle December 21st, 2011. Hazy fairly deep orange-amber with a small but lasting frothy mottled tan/beige head. Pungent aroma - sharp, really sinus-clearing - I thought maybe camphor or a cedar chest, but it was pointed out that it was LIME - whatever; not bad, but strange. Tasted like orange blossom honey - sweet, with a hint of cocoa and tangerine zest - really, really pleasant (8-). Mild carbonation, light body, a nice quick floral/honey finish - refreshing.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle [650ml] shared at Burger Bar w/ garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o HogTownHarry. Feb. 4. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with small foamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary sweet, fruity and kind of odd, but not in a bad way (must be the peppermint), quite spicy too. Flavour of spices, herbs and malt along with some sugary sweetness and honey. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good, it’s not something I’d want a lot of but it’s nice to share.

[4222-20111231] 600mL bottle. Peppermint orange leafy hop grains aroma smells a little like wet hair in a salon. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Grainy peppermint orange malt flavour. Medium body. Odd but good. (7/3/7-/3/13) 3.3

Boutip (4677) - 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.

solidfunk (3873) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2014
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.
