I visited this brewpub in July - surely it can't have closed down? It was great! I really enjoyed their wit beer, very refreshing, but more importantly very tasty, with bright. chalky notes. One of the best beers I tried in Canada.

Hazy straw body with a nice head. Nose is citrus (orange and lemon) with spicy notes. Flavour is wheaty and citrusy and very comfy in the mouth. A great Wit by a great brewpub.

Looks good but to me, lacks flavor. The finish is short lived but sure is nice to pound back on a hot day.

A wonderful beer. Nice orange and fresh corriander nose floating on top of a nicely carbonated wheat spiciness. Not as phenolic as I prefer, but still the beer that made that first big impact on me so long ago. Still the best brewpub in town.

Gold color. Lightly spiced fruity hop nose.Faint orange and spicy flavor with dry finish. Don’t care much for it.

Light golden color. Slight hoppy, fruity aroma -citrus. Hoppy, slight citrus palate. I don’t know, i didn’t get much from this beer, Oakes attested that it had been better, maybe an old sample.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 This beer rose to popularity when it was one of Gary’s best brews. These days, it’s fallen on hard times. Hazy yellow colour. Fairly fruity (peach), phenolic aroma. The flavour is malty, but less defined than in the Lohin days. Lightly fruity with a hint of spice. Tiny touch of hop dryness in the finish but otherwise quite sweet.
