From Muskoka Brewery,

Seasonally brewed and available in limited quantities, Muskoka Summer Weiss (“vice”) is crafted with visions of summer in mind. Naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. To release more flavour, agitate bottle slightly before opening. Cheers to you Summer!

Appearance | A slightly hazy, pale yellow with a white foamy head.

Smell | Grain, wheat, malts, bananas, cloves, and hops.

Taste | Shining with citrus, bananas, spices, and barley.

Aftertaste | A refreshingly fruity, smooth finish.

Overall | Summer Weiss recently won a OBA Gold award in the German Style Wheat Beer category. This light-bodied brew is very fruity and sweet.  Summer Weiss stays true to its character of Hefeweizen (a wheat beer noted for its high level of carbonation and low hops bitterness). It would appeal to those who are fans of this style.   This brew is perfect for a hot summer day on a dock or on the patio.   Summer Weiss would pair very well with nachos or a cheese platter.   Originally in 650ml bombers, this is the first time Muskoka Brewery has released Summer Weiss in 6-packs.

BONUS: Muskoka Brewery is holding a $1,000 Instagram photo contest for BEST SUMMER “VICE” PHOTO”. 

MUSKOKA BREWERY ASKS WHAT’S YOUR SUMMER VICE?

$1,000 INSTAGRAM PHOTO CONTEST FOR BEST SUMMER “VICE” PHOTO LAUNCHES TODAY

TORONTO May 1, 2013 – There’s a time of year that grants a seasonal hall pass for allowing you to sneak out of work early to enjoy a pint on a patio. It’s called Summer. Summertime conjures up thoughts of waterfront cottages and lazy afternoons in Muskoka, and isn’t it also the time of year that one does things that may not be done at other times of the year? We thought so. Summer “vices” are our guilty pleasures that only we alone savior – along with a seasonally brewed Award Winning Summer Weiss made specifically for the summer season.

What’s Your Summer Vice? We can think of our favorite vices of summer such as: Sneaking out mid-week to drink beer on a patio while supposedly “at a meeting”, skinny dipping in Lake Muskoka after dusk (or before), a perfectly timed cannonball or telling the boss that you are now leaving early for a doctor’s appointment but ending up…

“This award-winning seasonal brew is crafted with summer days in mind, says Gary McMullen, Founder and President of Muskoka Brewery. Being in Muskoka, and taking a 3 day weekend in Algonquin Park, is a quintessential summer vice for me. The release of Summer Weiss is a true sign of summer.”

Muskoka Summer Weiss – which hits LCBO’s and Beer Stores this week – was a Silver award winner in 2011 in the Wheat Beer category at the Canadian Brewing Awards in addition to winning a Gold Award at the 2013 Ontario Brewing Awards.

Try it for yourself and share a photo of your Summer Weiss (“vice) on Instagram, or Twitter with the hash tag #SummerWeiss for a chance to win a $1,000 Muskoka experience.
