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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
