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.

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.

Idiosynkrasie (3748) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy, orangey deep golden colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, fruity yeasty and slightly spicy aroma, hints of orange and orange zest, a peppery yeasty touch, herbal overtones. Taste is moderately sweet malty and fruity, surpressed by dry herbal and zesty notes, a spicy, peppery yeasty touch. Well balanced, multifaceted, but overall mild in character.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Big baked banana, bready banana bread. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft and tingly. More dry finish. Nice light spicy, zesty, sweet taste. Light nice alcohol warmth, moderate bitter. Little pineapple juice. Very tasty stuff... Odd indeed, though
