COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Muskoka Harvest Ale was our brewery’s pioneering venture into seasonal beers. Now in it’s fourth year, our Harvest Ale symbolizes the end of the growing season and the process of gathering mature crops from the fields Dry hopped and brewed using the finest ingredients we can find, this ale has a subtle grassy character reminiscent of the freshly cut harvest. It’s our way of celebrating another prosperous growing season. And we’re proud to share it with you.

Beautiful amber colour. RIght off the bat, hit the fruity scent of fresh hops. Sweet passionfruit and caramel notes at the front, with a heavy, but not overpowering bitterness at the end.

HippyHop (267) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pour is a hazy burnt orange with a finger of tan cap that fades fairly quickly to a ring. This stuff smells like fall. At first I don’t get much, but if I close my eyes and breathe deep I get grassy hops, hay and dry leaves and earth, with caramel, fresh apples and pears, and a bit of citrus. Taste up front is almost like apple cider with caramel and roasted grain, with a smooth, slightly bitter, long finish. It’s rustic and seasonal and perfectly befitting a brewery located in the Muskokas. It doesn’t really have the hop profile to be an APA, at least to this humble reporter, but it’s still awful damn tasty.

lesifflebiere (1353) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Boisson couleur jus de fraises, avec une mousse rare, une texture mi-mince et un nez fruité (baies, cerises, un peu d’ananas). La bouche est maltée, un peu terreuse, avec une finale de houblons qui tirent légèrement sur l’âcreté. Il en résulte une bière pas si facile d’approche, pas exactement désaltérante mais plutôt originale et qui donne l’impression d’être faite "à l’ancienne". Intéressante, pas grandiose, mais sans contredit une bonne bière qui surprend sur certains aspects.

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
Corked and caged wine bottle. That might not be necessary. This beer just screams "dry hopped harvest APA!", which is what it is, and those are pretty good, so luckily things worked out tasting good, albeit a bit on the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
