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.

After allowing the foam to dissipated, the aroma is clear Belgian yeast and herbs. The taste is orange hop oil, orange peel, chamomile and other herbs, coriander, dill. OK drinkability. Interesting, though not something I could have for a while. Beige head on medium yellow body.Smooth mouthfeel.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
In short: An aromatic blond ale that is hard to sum up in a short description
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed probably fresh approximately 1 month after purchase
The look: Clear dark blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Inviting nose of tropical fruits, lemony meringue, fresh bananas, a mash of garden flower petals. An aroma that is kind of hard to describe and every person will probably notice different elements. Taste is a crisp cracker with a slice of fresh banana on top, a side of fruit salad, a slice of lemon pie with thick meringue and a generous amount of hops. The hopping is fresh and vibrant with a character that is dry grassy and aromatic flowery. Lively mouthfeel. I thought this beer offered a good complexity and there was the little je-ne-sais-quoi that made it stand out from the crowd. Underrated imho. Another strong ale I drank several bottles of, so yes I might be an alcoholic, but at least I’m not one of those spineless *anonymous* one.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Smells great. Banana, dried fruit, faint earthy notes, faint coconut, and alcohol. As for taste, the alcohol is up front, but followed by fruity notes, a little pink bubblegum, sweetness, and a unique menthol like bitterness in the finish. Really, if I tasted this blind, I would guess Belgium all the way, definitely not Northern Ontario brewery. Well done. This is impressive stuff.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
Bouteille 750ml (vintage 2012). De couleur dorée foncée et claire. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes de bananes, traces de petits fruits) et épicées, moyen de grains de céréales et de houblon floral et herbeux (herbes fraîches) ainsi que des notes de sucre candi. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse et aux faibles notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, notes de petits fruits sucrés aux faibles traces acides) et moyennement épicées (poivre doux, léger de coriandre, notes de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de pain frais avec un léger goût de céréales fraîches et de sucre candi puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon floral et moyennement herbeux (herbes fraîches, faibles traces de thé). Post-goût moyen, léger-moyen amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec un goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes).

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Pours a cloudy golden color with a big white head that sticks around. Smells of sweet berries, dried fruits, yeast, banana and spicy cloves. Tastes fruity, yeasty, banana, clove and a nice full creamy mouthful with moderate carbonation. Excellent Belgian ale.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2012
Superbe bouteille offerte par Patrick (achetée en Ontario). Bière blonde translucide avec une mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez est frais, il y a des notes de malt pils et de blé, de levure belge et des épices nobles. En bouche le malt domine. Il y a une certaine fermeté. Les herbes sont bien présentes. La finale est banale, elle tombe à plat. 7/10
