GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2008
Big-ass ceramic bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - my bottle from the brewery (thanks, Steve!). Deep garnet-brown with a large off-white head. Aroma is very nice - toasted grain, sweet dark sugar, earthy spice/herbs. Flavour has notes of cocoa & chicory, toasted malt, and an interesting herbal note (presumably the bog myrtle). Very unique, and very good - nice job, guys!

Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
Bouteille 600ml. De couleur ambrée-brune et voilée. Nez très herbeux aux notes florales (bouquet d’herbes aromatiques), léger d’épices, de malt sucré et aux notes rôties avec des notes fruitées (baies aux notes sûres) ainsi que quelques traces de conifères. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement minérale et aux petites notes huileuses. Léger goût fruité légèrement acides et aux notes sûres (baies très vertes) avec un moyen goût d’herbes (herbes fraîches) ainsi que des notes florale et épicées (ne semblant pas provenir du houblon) dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen-léger goût de céréales légèrement sucrées et aux petites traces rôties ainsi que des notes de pain puis en finale l’on semble retrouver des notes de houblon herbeux avec de faibles traces de conifères. Post-goût moyen, très légèrement acide et aux petites notes sûres de fruits avec un léger goût herbeux.

Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2012

3.6
Quevillon (3195) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
600 ml bought at the brewery on April 29, 2016. Murky orange brown, small head. Fruity herb aroma, earthy notes. Earthy fruit taste, notes of dry green herbs and spruce, herbal bitterness. Fairly impressive gruit ale, it is their speciality!

2.6
asheft (3125) - 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.

3.6
Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Growler from the brewery, courtesy of my buddy Jay. Spicy nose, along with lots of malt - nice. Neat appearance - very dark brown, hazy and murky - very little head. Taste is good - reminded me instantly of Anchor Our Special Ale in its spiciness - it would have been more appropriate to drink this in the Winter than outside on the first great day of the year! Sweet malty brown ale with a neat original bit of spiciness - good effort Beau’s.

3.3
garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 19, 2012
Appearance: copper red, tiny whispy white head. Aroma: slightly sweet, some caramel, malt, a little floral. Flavour: sweet, floral, a little hoppy, nice underlining malt. Quite simple and pleasant.
