A Real Oddity

This wine blog is being distracted by beer at an alarming rate –  alarming to whom I’m not sure.

Legendary Bottle ShotThe Legendary Muskoka Oddity has been released upon us.  This Belgian style ale tastes like somebody started making Gin and then halfway through the brewmaster yelled “Stop the presses” and switched production to ale.  Muskoka Brewery says that they have “unearthed this season’s most distinct offerings” and it’s hard not to agree with them.  It’s hoppy to be sure but what makes it distinctive (in a gin sort of way) is the use of heather tips, juniper berries, and sweet orange peel shavings.

While I try not to be a sucker for a slick label  this falcon / peacock / scary antler deer thingy is so freakin’ cool. I can’t stop staring at it – like the Futurama Hypno-toad (stare below).

Legendary Muskoka Oddity is available at the LCBO – $9.95 for a 750 mL bottle. It’s sure to be a conversation piece at your next party and would make a great hostess gift – for the man who would rather shop for beer than buy flowers.
