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.

Karol (592) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2014
Vintage 2013 bottle bought at the LCBO in toronto/Canada. Jarred pears aroma no doubt! Amazing. Color is hazy orange golden. Taste is like a fruity Duvell. Very close to a standard Belgian ale or tripple. Overall a very very good beer!

77ships (3564) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to travlr! Cool label. Golden, white head. Doesn’t smell okay to me, lactic, this yeasty, sour, citrus, soap. Tastes of thick old chunky yeast, plaster, lactic, spoiled yoghurt, artificial citrus. Thick yeast, this doesn’t feel alright to me.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Corked bottle from Steamworks Liquor Store, Vancouver, as Muskoka Oddity
vintage 2013, bb 30 Sept 2014

Hazy blond color with medium sized compact head. Belgian aroma, lightly spicy and fruity, some esters, very light soap. Dynamic mouthfeel, lean and with very moderate sweetness; nice malt flavor, with delicate fruit and spice presence, no dominating traits; correct bitterness.
Has a few merits: clean, great balance, harmony and not showing too much the spices.
Very nice.

samzim (142) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Vintage 2013. Scent of yeast, malt, spice, and hops. Cloudy golden colour. Flavours of malt, yeast, gin, honey, and spices, with a slight sweetness on the front and a mild bitterness throughout. Medium in body and carbonation. Quite tasty; can’t wait till next year’s incarnation.

Randy4Beer (119) - - 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.

jksipa (279) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. slightly hazy pale orange with a small white head that lingers. Nose is yeast and spice with citrus notes as well as some apricot and caramel. Quite spicy with cloves dominant but not overpowering. Some light sweetness and moderate citrus bitterness. Medium sticky mouth with lively carbonation.

Gluepot (54) - 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.
