History & Style
Beau’s Gruit Series takes inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition; a time before the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516 that declared that all beer be made solely with barley, hops, and water. In gruit ale, herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character, throwing open the door to experimentation. Each gruit in the series will have a unique combination of ingredients and flavours.
A ‘Lamb’s Wool’ gruit is made with spices, ale and apples, and has a long history with Celtic pagan roots. It is a traditional wassail, a drink to be paired with singing, visiting friends, and mid-winter celebrations meant to bring good fortune to homes and harvests in the year to come. Our Lamb’s Wool is made with unfiltered juice pressed from organic Québec orchard apples, yarrow, whole cloves, and real cinnamon.
Lamb’s Wool pours copper with white foam. The aroma introduces a classic combo of apples and spice. The flavour is pleasantly tart and slightly warming, with fruit and pepper notes. The finish is clean and tangy.
