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.

Randy4Beer (191) - - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a light amber, with a very thin, one finger white head. Aromas of citrus, banana and a slight mustiness underlying it all. Tastes of citrus, and a some bitterness on the swallow. If you know "the Belgium Taste" this one is spitting it out big time. Overall, this is a strange beer that seems like an ok beer, but somehow manages to convince you that it is a superior beer. And it is.

Gluepot (64) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Wheat, spices and fruit in the nose. Taste is a refreshing, fruity Belgian ale, but not overpowered by Belgian yeast. A range of fruit tastes including citrus, citrus peel, tropical fruit and ripe berries are also nicely set off by a hint of toffee. Very tasty, thirst quenching and well blended.

Benzai (8535) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Dutchdrebus. Opaque yellow color, small white head. Can’t smell anything due to the hayfever goddamn. Taste malts, a bit yeasty, some hops, a bit bitter. Don’t know why, maybe because I can’t get the aroma good enough due to the hayfever, but I’m not too impressed. Medium body and carbonation.

75 cl bottle @ Timo A, no freshness info
Aroma has fruity notes and soapy apricot. Flavour has some moldy tones. Also fruits, apricot and soapy tones. Refreshing, a Belgian clone well done. The moldy tones are not nice though. Gets better with yeast added.
