Vankleek Hill, Ontario – The Beau’s Mix (Fall Edition) hits Ontario LCBO and grocery shelves this month, with a new selection of returning favourites. Leading the pack is Wag the Wolf white I.P.A., a hazy and hoppy wheat ale that delivers bold fruity aromas and flavours. It is flanked by Beau’s fall seasonal release, Night Märzen amber lager, as well as two core line-up must-haves, Good Time Session I.P.A. and flagship Lug Tread Lagered Ale. Wag the Wolf and Night Märzen will also be sold singly in 473ml cans.
Joining the Beau’s core line-up is Wag the Wolf (5% ABV, certified organic), a modern mash-up of two beer styles, a classic German wheat ale and a bold American I.P.A. It is brewed with a substantial ratio of organic wheat to barley malts, as well as two organic hop varieties: Motueka and Rakau. It pours hazy with white foam. There is a burst of citrus with lemon and grapefruit on the nose, along with banana notes.
The flavour is similarly fruity, with additional hints of papaya, peach and mild peppery notes. The bitterness is firm but not overwhelming. It has lively carbonation and a bright and balanced finish. It serves well alongside more delicate dishes such as whitefish, as well as complementary lemon and pepper flavours.
Night Märzen (5.5% ABV, certified organic) is an amber-coloured seasonal lager that Beau’s has brewed to award-winning excellence every fall for more than a decade. Its mild toasted malt sweetness is kept perfectly in check by two varieties of European hops. It pours a clear, coppery amber with white foam and aromas of crusty bread.
It has biscuity malt flavour and a firm hop presence that lends balancing bitterness. An ultra-clean finish completes the package in this highly drinkable amber lager. With its toasty amber malts and smooth finish, Night Märzen is a great match for roasted and grilled fare.
Good Time Session I.P.A. (4%, certified organic), which joined the Beau’s core line-up this past spring, is also included in this Beau’s Mix, as is Beau’s flagship Lug Tread (5.2%, certified organic), Ontario’s original lagered ale. The Beau’s Mix and single cans of Wag the Wolf will be available at LCBOs and grocery stores across Ontario beginning August 15. Single cans of Night Märzen are available at LCBO and grocery stores as of August 8. Cans of Wag the Wolf will also be sold at The Beer Store (select locations).
