OCB Series - Muskoka Cottage Brewery - Summer Weiss

Muskoka Cottage Brewery
Summer Weiss
ABV 4.8%

"Seasonally brewed and available in limited quantities, Muskoka Summer Weiss ("vice") is crafted with visions of summer in mind. Unfiltered and naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. To release more flavour, agitate bottle slightly before opening. Cheers to you Summer!"

I have to start by saying we had this on tap at Gambrinus bistro and cafe. Our local option for fresh, craft and specialty brews. Should you find some at your local LCBO (see link below), it will be slightly different.

the Look: Nice, rich old gold colour, clear with a little head which didn't linger.

the Smell: nicely spicy on the nose, to be expected, hints of floral notes with an overall "fresh" aroma.

the Taste: great full flavour, just the right balance of wheat and spicy notes come through lasts well on the tongue with no bitterness.

the Feel: surprisingly light in feel for the flavour, cascaded well over the tongue hitting all your tastebuds.

Overall: this was a tasty offering, I would happily go back again and will be trying to track some down through the LCBO. It was brewed with the summer in mind, and I look forward to having a few in the backyard with a slow roast BBQ on.
