I picked up their Wit on the weekend(also a style I'm not huge on) and like it a lot. Less sweet than most wit beers, actually quite dry with a. Nice minerality to it. Reminded me a little bit of st Bernardus wit. Solid solid stuff
Indeed... I was impressed with the Blond. Other than Unibroue, not a lot of Canadian breweries (at the LCBO) consistently compete with the Belgian competition. I hope to pick up some of that Wit the next time I am in London (probably within a week or two), since I haven't seen it 'round these parts. St Bernardus Wit is my favourite witbier overall so that is a very favourable comparison in my eyesseangm wrote:I really enjoyed [Sling Shot California Common], thought it was a nice example of the style and fares well against Anchor (though Anchor still wins in my books). Your notes about the Mill Street pack are discouraging though, just picked up the summer sampler for myself lol. Oh well, gotta try everything once.
I am also really digging that Sling Shot, and have picked up a few more cans since that original post. It's an underrepresented style and I want to enjoy it while it's fresh and available.
As for the Mill Street pack, hopefully you've had a better experience than I did. The Honest Bucker was pretty good, and I don't mind their West Coast IPA. The rest of it was pretty underwhelming, though.

I mixed them up with somebody. Subject would make a good alternate thread.

No rush if you're holding these, the carbonation is vibrant and overall condition of the beer is impressive. This would be a great beer to see back at the LC & add an armful to the cellar space, it should pay dividends for the long haul.
I was having a tipple of Oloroso and had a craving for Keizer Blauw, and I have to say it hit the spot.

I was quite impressed by it, big juicy hop flavours, well balanced and really drinkable. Lots of orange/tangerine/passionfruit going on. It actually reminds me a bit of Ransack. Probably the best flying monkeys beer I've had in years
