Ah so you mean the OTHER beer with the non Boulevard listing on the LCBO SITE. Great! Nice to know it exists... wow.

Will try it now thanks.

The Robust Porter at TBS Finchdale is over a year past the best before date.

wonder what happened here

weak sales #s
a lot of SKUs on the shelves these days. Geeks buy a few (or one) and move on the the next new thing. Regular drinkers are most likely consuming Corona/heineken/bud/etc
(just a guess)

Is Valar Dohaeris new? I honestly can't remember... Anyway, it's just listed as Ommegang Game of Thrones.

It was originally released Sept 2016 but possibly new to LCBO as I have never seen it in stores.

Actually you mean:

It was originally released Sept 2016 but possibly "old" to LCBO.......

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but if I'm reading this right there seems to be a bunch of Hitachino stuff at Highway 7 and Woodbine. They have the amber, espresso stout, lager and nipponia.

Them have their beers at some ping pong bar at East Beaver Creek there. Maybe they bring them into that store for the bar. They charge like $13 a bottle or something at the bar. I almost shit myself.

Not sure if it's been mentioned or not, but Karma Citra is back in store. Just grabbed a half dozen. I'll crack one tonight

As in, available for single bottle purchase? The LCBO site is only showing online/full case availability. That store's a bit too far out for me anyway, but may try somehow since I want to try the Nipponia one and the stout.

They were all single bottle purchase, and there were a few cases there. The only other store that is currently listing stick (I use Drinkvine to do my searches) is Steeles and Markham.

Had the stout last night for the first time in ages. Nice, strong coffee flavour!

midlife crisis wrote:I'd be interested in your review of the Harvest Ale once you have cracked it. My recollection is that I've really enjoyed it some years and others not so much.


Sadly I've got to echo the disappointment that a lot of others here have found. One word for this iteration: bubblegum. Very strange fruity sweetness in this version, some tropical fruitiness and this persisting bubblegum flavour reminiscent of a hefeweizen. I'm pretty disappointed by the drastic profile change, enough that I'll probably send my feedback to Muskoka since they've changed an old favourite so drastically that it's not the Harvest Ale in my eyes.

Well, at least thanks to this feedback
I'll be saving myself 7$ that I would have spent without a second thought, initially on the harvest ale
