Part of Beau’s series of true-to-style beers, this Belgian-style black ale is a showcase of roasted chocolate and black malts, to which monastery ale yeast adds a characteristically Belgian spiced finish. Hidden deep within the dragon’s lair, this ale is worth the challenge of contending against its keeper.
Why a beer celebration in the darkest days of winter? Because Old Man Winter needs a kick in the snowpants, that’s why! Our five-week midwinter celebration of all things craft-brewed and tasty features a brand-new Beau’s beer released every week.
Chase away the winter blahs with a sunshiny taste of California oranges and Peruvian cacao beans! Blood Simple is a chocolate-orange riff on the classic citrus-and-spice character of a Belgian-style witbier, brewed with organic blood orange juice, organic orange peel, and organic cacao. Aromas are of orange citrus and cacao, with flavour marked by spritzy, juicy orange. The body is light and lively, and cacao asserts itself nicely in the finish.
2016…Mommy, it’s over! 😥
Thanks Beau’s for making blah-February a great brew month and kickin’ old man winter in the snowpants again in 2016!
KORU BELGIAN-STYLE PALE ALE • 6.0%
Koru boasts interesting spicy, peppery yeast notes, with tropical fruit inflections from New Zealand Rakau and Nelson-Sauvin hops. Complex and tasty, with a dry finish.
ELEPHANT MONSOON PEANUT BUTTER & GRAPE PORTER • 6.7%
A delicious duo meets a classic beer style in what we are calling a “PB & Grape” porter. The nicely roasted malt character of a Porter ale gets a fun, flavourful twist with the addition of organic peanut butter and concord grape juice.
Week 3, Feb 18:
FARM TABLE: PILS NORTH GERMAN-STYLE PILSNER • 4.7%
Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. A traditional Pilsner with the regional characteristics of those brewed in the northern part of Germany. Less mellow or “soft” than some Pils; delivers a pleasantly snappy, bracing hop character with each sip.
