From the Muskoka Brewery, we have Legendary Muskoka Oddity.
What's with this trend of corking beer these days?
If that's what it takes to make a good beer, then I'm all for it.
I saw this beer at the LCBO for the last couple of weeks. The price was a bit of a deterrent. After seeing someone else post a pic on Instagram and saying that it was good, I couldn't resist.
This is one really good beer. 8% alcohol to boot.
Before reading the label, I let my kids have a sniff and tell me what it smells like. Both of them (14 and 18 yrs old) said it reminded them of peaches. The label reads:
Muskoka water, juniper berries, heather tips, sweet & bitter orange peels, north american malted barley, magnum and sorachi ace hops, and trappist yeast.No peaches, but to me, that sums up to "great fuckin' beer". Seriously, I regret not buying more than one bottle. I predict that next weekend is going to be expensive because I plan on picking up a few to keep in the fridge downstairs for the summer. I think this would go really well with a nice BBQ steak.
My wife even enjoyed this, and she's pretty picky. :)
