HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
600ml bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown, rather dark, moderate short-lived tan head. Looked kind of like a Belgian ale. Aroma was a little yeasty and dusty, but mostly dark fruity malt. Taste is tart and herbal with a mild sweetness, salt and yeast. Medium body, decent carbonation. Overall, very unique. Kind of an herbal Belgian ale.

Youre not gonna win a lot of friends brewing beer with bog weed. And thats what I like about this brew. Pours busted nose brown with a luscious one finger cap. Flavour is unlike anything Ive had before. Down side is a coppery, pennies in water aftertaste. A true herbal offering, almost jarring in the way it presents itself. Clearly not a session beer, this is one to sip on & shake your head about. Like hearing a Grateful Dead song at a hip hop show. Recommended.

This one poured a cloudy amber colour with a nice creamy head. Some lacing. Scents include salon perm solution, very ripe fruit and apricot. First swig was creamy with light carbonation. Flavours of ripe fruit and a little caramel. Finish was a little bitter with that ripe fruit flavour lingering.

Im 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 cant put your finger on. Not overpowering.

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.

Bire brune un peu ple, cuivre la lumire, moyennement voile, trs effervescente, et surmonte dun col beige, pas tellement large, mais tout de mme bien mousseux et persistant. Arme de fruit acidul, je ne suis pas trop connaisseur de myrte(?), mais on est dans le domaine des baies, petits fruits, framboise, canneberge, griotte On note galement quelques effluves malts, pain frais, foin, lger sucr (rglisse rouge et/ou sucre dorge), avec une levure pteuse (pte pain), et quelques pices (clou de girofle, poivre avec peut-tre des trucs plus herbacs, comme de la coriandre). Par moment, larme acidul fait davantage agrume, citron. Nez intressant, belle complexit, intensit un peu faible cependant. En bouche, ptillement lev sur la langue, breuvage bien mousseux, mais plutt mince au palais. Au got, pain frais, foin, rglisse rouge, avec acidit fruit dominante (framboise, canneberge, griotte et certaines notes citronnes), quelques pices (poivre et clou de girofle), et quelque chose de rsolument herbac en trame de fond (coriandre et/ou houblon). Peu sucre, acidit dominante, lgre amertume en fin de bouche. Les diffrentes saveurs ne me semblent que moyennement bien intgres les unes aux autres, intensit moyenne en bouche, bonne complexit. Il sagit dune bonne bire, bien intressante, mais je ne suis pas tellement amateur de ces bires au profil principalement fruit acidul.

bunget (881) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
600ml bottle. Nice clear amber body, low head, not much of a retention. Aroma is sweetish, hops, malt, caramel, quiet herbal and refreshing. Taste is malty, sourly, medicinal, sweet, a little oily. OK beer.

RhetoricalAns (878) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Dark brown slight hazy pour, off white head no lacing. Weak aroma, watery, a bit musky. sweet malt taste, caramel, slight spice. Fizzy mouth feel, a little thin.

SuperTiti33 (859) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Ambrée. Sucré. Florale/herbacé. Très Fruité. Baie, probablement la myrte. Épicé. Fine amertume végétale. Légère trame de caramel de l'entré à la finale. Très intéressante.

AleRider78 (830) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Poured a pretty thick amount of head but went away quick. End up with a thin coat of bubbly head. Has a really dark hazy amber appearance. Something smells a little burnt within aroma, like smokey wood or something to that effect, which is fine. Upon first sip, I was somewhat turned right off with the sourness and bitterness. Sort of like dark cranberries and spicy cloves, nuts, roasted malts. weird. Very sweet and strong bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is slightly apparent, just enough. Once it warmed up a bit, seemed to calm down and went down a bit easier. Dont think I can stomach more than one bottle though. Tastes ok, just not a continuous chugger. Weird mixture of flavours which just didnt sit well with me.
