Boghopper is a hoppy and hazy amber-to-chestnut-coloured wheat beer. This dark hopfenweiss was hopped continuously throughout the boil with a blend of American and European hops. Big banana aromas meld with juicy, fruity hops, and a clove + earthy spiciness mid-palate.

History & Style
The Beau’s brewers have blazed new trails with what they are calling a dunkelhopfenweiss: an experimental hybrid of a dunkel weissbier with an elevated hop presence. Boghopper is made truly local with the addition of hand-harvested organic sweet gale from northern Québec.
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.
