COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each year the tempered thaw of Muskoka winter gives rise to new and strange creations. Legends date back to the 1800’s when lumberjacks and fur traders took to the woods and ecnountered the mysterious culture and wildlife in the unknown Northern region. Today, we echo our ancestors’ quest and have unearthed this season’s most distinct offerings. The culmination of these ingredients rests in the LEGENDARY MUSKOKA SPRING ODDITY brew.

We invite you to Release The Legend.

Ingredients: Pure Muskoka Water, Heather Tips, Juniper Berries, Sweet Orange Peel Shavings, North American Malts, Noble Hops, Belgian Yeast and Belgian Candi Sugar.

If your brew comes in a box it better be damned serious. This beer is not serious enough. It’s good, but not in-a-special-box good. This yeasty beasty also smells of caramel and old toffee, some dankness indeed on this hazy, light amber and thin headed fiend. Quite boozy, floral honey-sweet and bubblegummy. A low fizziness and medium heavy body on this brew. I was hoping to taste more of the wacky ingredients they added but no dice.

Bottle from the Great White North. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of light spice and flowers. Taste is spiced and floral.

lesifflebiere (1273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Jaune-orange avec une mousse rare formant une petite couronne ; mince, elle émet des notes de fruits variés en nez, tels que des pêches (levure belge, sans doute), des cerises et des framboises (genièvre). L’alcool est assez présent en bouche, mais la signature de style "tripel" est bien présente, avec ensuite une longue et persistante glissade fruitée. Finale en houblons assez doux. Une curiosité, en effet, cette Muskoka mi-printemps mi-été ; agréable, complexe et savoureuse, mais pas le grand cru qu’elle prétend être.

teddybeer (2230) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 31, 2014
Vintage 2013, labelled Legendary Muskoka Oddity. Golden color with a white head with good retention and medium lacework. Aroma has notes of some spices, alcohol and some fruity hints. Flavor is slightly fruit, good presence of alcohol, spiced hints and some bready notes. Alcoholic final with some sweetness in the aftertaste.

vadie (719) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Le couleur du miel avec un tête moyen blanc qui les laisse les belles dentelles. L’arôme très fruité avec du bruyères les baies et oranges. Il y a aussi du levure belge et de l’alcool. Le goût est des baies, orange, et malt sucré avec une finale amer et sec. L’amertume ne reste pas en bouche après les gorgées. Très complexe et intéressante.

7/VII/14 - 75cl bottle leftover saved from RBBSG III with cap and in the fridge, since I couldn’t keep up with the tick fest @ home - BB: n/a, 2013 vintage (2014-784) Thanks to Travlr for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark orange beer, small aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: spicy, orange peel, very spicy, bit sugary. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bits weet start, some orange peel, very spicy, bit oxidized, might be due to keeping though. Aftertaste: spicy, orange peel, bit sugary, sweet. Meh.

Hidden_Pooch (320) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
They should have never put this beer in a box. The box automatically over hypes the beer and gets your hopes up too much. Not that it is a bad beer, it just isn’t a standout in my mind. Pours a hazy peach colour with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of basement, wheat and honey. Taste is pretty complex with hints of banana, booze, honey, apple, and gum. Has a medium heavy body with low carbonation and a tingly feeling left in your mouth. Quite quaffy for how strong it is, but all those fun ingredients didn’t do too much for this brew.

Atheist_Peace (951) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Clear amber pour with a very quick head that leaves no lace at all...no, wait, there’s a few bubbles clinging to one edge of the glass. Nose has some bready yeast, spice and candied fruit. There’s a real kerosene note on the palate on top of some spice and faint fruit. There’s something very sharp in the finish and the alcohol warmth isn’t altogether pleasant. There’s almost a burn in the long finish. I’d pass on this a second time. Gah.
