Beer Description:
Boghopper is a hoppy and hazy golden-chestnut-coloured wheat beer, made truly local with an addition of hand-harvested sweet gale (bog myrtle). This dark hopfenweiss was continuously hopped throughout the boil with a blend of American and Continental hops. Big banana aromas meld with juicy, fruity hops, and a clove + earthy spiciness mid-palate.

History & Style: For Vankleek Hill Oktoberfest 2014 the Beau’s brewers split up into teams, charged with creating the best recipe for this year’s fest. Team "Blind Faith" (Matt Tweedy, Jeff McCauley, Adam Wilson, Bruce Kearney) has blazed new trails with what they are calling a dunkelhopfenweiss: an experimental hybrid of dunkel weissbier and herbed beer with elevated hop presence.

Tasting Notes: Boghopper offers up exciting aromas of banana, red licorice and nutmeg. The body is light. Initial fruity notes are followed by assertive waves of herbal tannins. Hop flavour is dominant, the finish is dry and woodsy.

Food Pairings: Duck a l’orange, rillettes
