COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong & dark beer, inspired by the Alfred bog, is our very first seasonal offering. Featuring bog myrtle, or sweet gale, harvested from the wilds of northern Quebec. This ancient herb was used in brewing hundreds of years ago and offers bitterness, a sweet aroma and herbal spicy notes.

Bog Water is a wonderful combination of a sweet malty, carmel, Belgian-style dubbel ale with the almost minty bitterness of the bog myrtle. The lasting aftertaste is a bit more astringent (reminds me of nettle). On some sips I get slight hints of licorice. From the bottle I would give it some time to flatten. Found it a bit too bubbly on first sip. Also drinks better at warmer temperatures. Will taste side-by-side with Rochefort 10 soon and maybe adjust score up.

660ml bottle from LCBO Appearance: Dark copper to ruby in colour, thick creamy off white head, lingers but eventually fades. Some good lacing. Aroma: Earthy hop aroma, some green apples, toffee notes in background Flavour: Lovely malty profile, toffee and walnuts, nice earthy hop flavour comes through after couple seconds. Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, chewy nutty texture, lovely smooth long finish, and a nice alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. Overall: I was blown away by this beer from a solid brewer who rarely misses a beat.

Huge difference drinking this fresh. Overall taste sours after a month. Fresh this is a wonderfully warning winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was eager to try this Gruit after trying the Heather Legend from Cassel which did quite a good impression. I’m happy to say that the positive trend continues. A bit like a spiced beer, but a more natural taste to it, more blended into the drink, more refined. Definitely a special taste with the myrtle, I wonder if I could age this beer. Quite unique, with a smoothness that reminds you of the Belgian ones.
