Working with Nickel Brook, Great Lakes, Sawdust City and Escarpment Labs Four Winds has come up with the Best Case Ontario, a Farmhouse Ale that  uses Ontario Hops and  a BC brewing style. In 750ml bottles this beer is 7.5% alcohol and 20 IBUs. Popping the cork from this bottle conditioned beer, the Best Case Ontario is hazy and golden in colour with two fingers of head. The aroma is yeasty with notes of tropical fruit, clove, earth-tones and a light brett-like funk. The flavour has massive yeast character with that wild-yeast funk taking charge along with notes of citrus, melon and tropical fruit. This is not your typical Farmhouse Ale but then again the style isn’t really typical in nature. The wild yeast plays first chair throughout the entire flavour with unique fruit and earthy-funk tones. Another winner from Four Winds!
