355ml bottle, part of the current Muskoka winter mixed-pack. Curious as to what makes this a 'winter' version.

This beer pours a clear, dark orange brick brown colour, with one finger of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat bubbly beige head, which leaves some sparse streaky and dotted lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of semi-sweet roasted wheat grain, dried banana chips, a bit of bruised apple and pear, slightly phenolic yeast, day-old coffee, and a leafy, earthy bitterness. The taste is toasted caramel malt, wheat crackers, banana peel, musty yeast, applesauce, a hint of citric tartness, ethereal cafe-au-lait notes, a hint of wet char, and weak leafy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is fairly low-key in its plain, sort of fizzy manner, the body an average weight for the style, and perhaps more than a tad thin in its smoothness. It finishes off-dry, just, as the roasted wheat and malty graininess slough off most of the yeastiness, to come out of this cleaner than one might have initially expected.

An agreeable enough version of the style, though the idea of calling something 'winter', just because it is a darkened version of one of your bread and butter summer staples, seems kind of tangential at best. Anyways, if you like your dunkelweizens flavourful, but on the light side, this one's for you.

A nice creamy smooth subtle beer. Nose has banana, cloves, and other spices. Taste follows. Quite lovely.

355 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - dark yet clear beer, nice two fingers of off white head. Good eye too a nod inviting looking.

Smell - bananas and clove come to the forefront, but there's a little bit of Christmas baking thrown in for good measure.

Taste - same as the nose with banana clove and some spices dominating. However on the back end there's definitely a healthy wheat flavor, making this a no doubt wheat beer.

Mouthfeel - smooth and slick, yet light bodied, carbonation is medium.

Overall - a very well crafted dunkelweizen, and while not a favourite of the style I certainly wouldn't turn this down if offered. A good showing again by muskoka.

Muskoka winter weiss
A- darkbrown with a light lacing
Smell is mildly phenolic with a dark full roast malt. Lemon and fruits.
Taste is lemony, banana, coffee,
Mouthfeel is full creaminess, nutmeg, and some pepper. moderate tingly carbonation, a little fruity phenolic tingle. A full creamy wheat body, mildly sour cherry and tangy tropical fruit mixed with a bit of early winter spices. All around pretty solid and interesting, a bit different.
