Re: What're you drinking right now?

A bottle of Nickel Brook Über Peach Berliner Weisse , from Summerhill where I also got a Pineapple Über this week! They are all similarly tart and dry and the fruit is subtle, this is lightweight fare yet the good pale pit fruit flavors are there and a whiff of peach orchard funk in the fragrance. S...

Fumees Blanches $2 off if you hurry

Francois Lurton Fumees Blanches Sauvignon Blanc Great value! On sale still today, Saturday and Sunday. A complex, detailed and harmonious wine for the price - fruit and herbs galore. The fruit is typical SB gooseberry (with its famous 'cat pee' funkiness) plus tropical (pineapple, guava) and citrus...

Rosé Beaujolais

Baronne du Chatelard Rosé d'Été 2017 I missed getting the Chatelard Morgon at Summerhill but they did still have a few of these pale salmon-colored beauties. Unusual, a 100% Gamay Rosé (like much Rosé it is pressed from 'black' grapes but allowed only minimal contact with the grape skins.) This sty...

Re: Witchstock 2018

... pricing and reaction to it is emblematic of a huge sea change in our scene over the past 15 years.... the new higher price points stick in your craw a little. It's a case of be careful what you wish for. Which we got. We really wanted more than 1 or 2 pale ales in the province, and w e now have...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Wow, 10 Bitter Years! I must come back to that. Having a 500ml bottle of Stone City Party Bus Pale Ale from the brewery. Excellent! This is kind of a Vermont presentation but a definite refined citrus aroma and flavour. Really perfect medium palate, drinkable and very satisfying. Perfect beer. I wil...

Re: Uncorked-Wine and Spirits Appreciation

Château Larroque 2015 Bordeaux Red This is I guess a right-bank style blend featuring 63% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep black cherry black fruit cassis and wild berry, nice dryness and acid yet smooth round and full. A bit spicy, probably the oak influence. You won't regre...

Re: Doug Ford

Buck-a-beer is a vestige firmly set in a past that will not be coming back. Elite-class North Americans also used to think tyranny and servitude were good things, Ford likely thinks so and I don't think every idea from the past is workable or even desirable. MBABGA? No thanks, Doug you big fat head....

Mostly Malbec Mix

Château Nozières Cuvée Ambroise de l'Her Malbec Cahors 2014 I would call this a solid mid-weight Cahors Malbec (95%) red with nice dry-sweet berry and good herbal complexity. Licorice overtones. Possesses the typical French dryness and the right bit of mouth-watering acidity in the structure that I...

Re: Sexism in beer labels in Ontario

Perhaps all those who wanted the scantily clad women removed from the labels will support them now... Maybe they will! Or maybe just go off to protest something else? I don't think Leftist SJWs necessarily put their money where their mouth is. I'm still optimistic for Nickel Brook, and the bar has ...

Portugal Palate Pleaser

Casa de Cambres Reserva Red 2011 A spicy-oaky note over the deep black, almost raisin-y fruit. This is why you must keep your eye on Portugal. This red rides the border between the serious and the agreeable, not unlike some Spanish wines I've checked out. Grapes: Touriga Franca · Tinta Roriz (Tempr...

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Didn't the Beach get a nice LCBO just a couple of years ago? I haven't been in, but it looks.... Shiny. It is pretty sleek, although I find it a bit more wine/spirit centric. Best selection around there is the Queen/Coxwell LCBO, although they don't have a walk-in cooler so a lot of the stuff is ou...

Re: Downtown Toronto LCBO’s

Summerhill, King & Spadina and Queen's Quay is good too. King-Spadina turned out well, you're lucky it dropped right by you guys. It's also a LC store that's not closed up at 9pm sharp like the 'service' so many offer. 11 PM!! Yes it has been very handy. The late hours are nice too. It'll be go...

Oh, so Immodest and Naughty Neighbor show some legs and ass.
