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.

asheft (3028) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
[bottle from LCBO] Spicy aroma with ginger, lemon, star anise, faint clove, and brown sugar. Hazy dark brown under a thin, tan ring and patches. Sour flavour right up front, followed by pleasant brown sugar and lemon and faint spices (see aroma) and no bitterness. Light to medium-light body, moderate carbonation, lingering sourness.

solidfunk (8062) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours cloudy red. Smells a little hoppy. The gale adds a different bitter angle to this beer but the overall product is a little gimmicky. Bottle.

BreWedge (511) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
600 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is bread, yeast, banana, bubble-gum, and a little alcohol. Taste is banana, clove, and a little spice. Smooth, medium body with a gentle malty finish. Very much like a German wheat beer. Not my favorite Beaus product, but you have to try somethiing made with bogmyrtle!

SlovakSniper (5315) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Une bouteille du LCBO. Un liquide trangement rougetre dpossd de sa tte mousseuse. Le nez est une attaque contrle de malts grills et de sucre brun avec des parfums douteux dherbes et daromates fruits. Le got est plus ou moins intressant. Le sucr des malts se fusionne difficilement avec ces herbes qui finissent par picer mon palais. La sensation en bouche nest pas extraordinaire. Je naime pas le comportement trs actif des bulles. La texture en souffre lgrement. La finale est plus ou moins stimulante : les tissus de ma bouche cherchent une orientation travers cette crispation qui est nanmoins peu dplaisante. Je manque denthousiasme face cette concoction qui propose la diffrence.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, hazy reddish brown with a toffee, pillowy head. Aroma is of belgian yeast, orange peel, earth, and vanilla sweetness. The taste is medium sweet malt with some toast, with a slight bitter herbal finish. A bit light bodied considering how sweet this is. Nice to see an Ontario brewery playing with foraged ingredients!

lukin (598) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
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.

Raistlin (351) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Very disappointing. Beaus usually brews great beers. I cant even begin to describe how bad this one is because it brings back that disgusting taste.

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

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
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 dont like dark beer.
