Growler from the brewery. Pours dark brown, slightly red. Very little head, a little flat. Big smoky aroma, taste is sweet, hints of raisin, prunes, and roasted malt finish. Good stuff! MXD (304) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
Ceramic from the brewery. Drank in a (Beauís...) Pint-glass), in two "servings".
Pours copper brown with shades of dark-green. Basically no white-head, somewhat flat. Earthy (read : muddy) /spicy aroma, with a slight hint of smoke.
Low bitterness, somewhat sweet as well.
Medium body, really flat though. Spicy from start to finish - I guess thatís what Sweet Gale is about.
I heard great things about that beer. Itís definitely good, and worth a try - because itís pretty unique (anybody knows another beer made with Sweet Gale?). Still, itís not as amazing as I expected - the folks at Beauís really told me it was an awesome one, and I was relatively disappointed, kinda like an A student who got a B+. Still a regular purchase, though.

Appearance : Hazy amber with no head.
Aroma : Spices and fruits with some malt. Nice yeast with nice banana bread notes.
Taste : Spices with light bananas. Finish has nice notes of banana bread. Light bitterness.
Overall : Nothing to write home about but quite good. Nice banana bread notes. I thought this was a weizen.
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!

Has a murky brown like colour, Aromas of fresh pine and spruce, malted and caramel candy. Has a sour taste profile with a tangy zesty finish which is surprising given the aroma on the nose. rederic (3335) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014

bottle. Poured hazy brown with a beige diminishing head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt with an herbal note. Medium body, prickly carbonation with a tart finish. Flavour of caramel malts with a vegetal hoppiness, notes of yeast and peppery spice. Alcohol well hidden. CRock (238) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Decent beer overall. Strong notes of caramel and fruit. Itís tart, but not over powering.
