Draught @ beerbistro: Dayna’s Beer of the Moment, and highly recommended by our server. He gave us the whole background on the bog myrtle and we couldn’t resist. Comes quite dark, red in colour, decent foamy off-white head. Aroma was complex with lots of spice, to be honest I had no notepad and I chased it with a few more, so trying to remember the subtle nuances ain’t happenin’. I can tell you that the flavour was quite nice, very reminiscent of Maudite, but with no aftertaste to speak of. Quick hit of bitterness on the tongue, but quickly makes way for a nice subtle sweetness, slight watery, lots of spice and pepper. It’s actually very interesting and our entire party of three all enjoyed it thoroughly. Good work, guys!

Sweet, fruity, earthy and herbal in the nose. Hazy brown body is topped by a decent, if large bubbled, off-white head that lasts fairly well. Flavour is sweet and fruity up front, almost a cross between a saison and a dubbel - very Belgian inspired to me. Moderate bitterness and herbal, earthy notes round out the flavour. Medium body is filled by a gentle, expansive effervescence. Really great texture on the tongue. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at the LCBO on Danforth Rd. in December 2013.

Liquide dont la couleur est au croisement du rouge, de l’orangé et de l’acajou. Couronne de mousse crème. Le nez est épicé, rondement malté, avec des houblons pour terminer. En bouche elle est savoureuse, fruitée, ramenant des baies et du sucre cuit au premier plan. Une excellente bière pas juste fruitée mais aussi d’une belle complexité, avec des saveurs rarement retrouvées dans ce genre de breuvage. Très agréable.

Pours a hazy brown thick fluffy white head, aroma has some sweat bready malt and dark fruit. Flavor has a strong malt background with some peppery notes and a slight sourness. Enjoyable beer.

Orange brûlée aux reflets rougeâtres, trouble, avec un col de mousse crème/orangé assez épais qui laisse rapidement place à une simple auréole. Nez épicé, sucré et malté. Goût fruité (petits fruits), sucré et épicé, avec presque aucune amertume.

Plutôt intéressante celle-ci! Ça sent un peu plus que ça goûte mais tout est bien en place et juste assez épicé pour le style. C’est bien fruité mais toutefois un peu mince en bouche. À acheter de nouveau c’est certain!!

Bottle (750ml ceramic swing-top). Shared by GregClow with blankboy, jerc and tupalev. Deep mahogany with a solid beige creamy head. Dry medium-deep roast cereal grain with some dry floral/herbal bitterness. Taste follows, quite sweet caramel malt with some raisin and light nutshell and wildflower bitterness - on the light side, not boozy, subtle .... Average body, smooth and soft, gently bitter in the finish. A light, roasty, cold-weather treat - my hat is off to you, Beaus - well done!

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

Bottle given to me by my colleague’s boyfriend back in Canada that I later shared at the Downtown Inn post-grand tasting party for RBWG. Full, tannish orange pour. Nose of pleasant caramel and cereal notes. Pleasant flavor has caramel malt, cereal, slight earthiness, and a surprise tartness. Lip smacking good. The tartness is sure a surprise in a good way. Crazy.
