From Bieres Jukebox subcontracted at Oshlag Brasserie & Distillerie in Montreal comes their “New Wave Milkshake IPA”. Thanks to Cee of Beer & Other Shhh Podcast for this beer! The beer pours a very cloudy orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of orange juice, tropical fruits like mango and pineapple and some mild lactose. The flavour is of orange juice, pineapple, mango, vanilla with some grain, resin, pine, lactose and a mild bitterness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 6.1% with an IBU of 50. This Milkshake IPA is not as sweet as some but it is quite on point with tones of fruit flavours and a lower than average bitterness. I really enjoyed this beer and am stoked I had the opportunity to try it out!

From Field House Brewing in Abbotsford in collaboration with Steamworks Brewing in Burnaby comes their “Wild Muscari Farmhouse Ale”. This is the first of 4 coolship collaborations that Field House will be doing. The wild Yeast was harvested from a Muscari Flower on Mt Seymour in North Vancouver. The beer pours a light golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of leafy, floral hops, tropical fruit and citrus. The flavour was of tropical fruits, lemon, citrus rind, herbal, mild resin, some grain, maybe a hint of funk and some mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 20. This was an interesting brew I just wish it had some more wild yeast notes. You have to love the spirit of collaborating in a coolship though!
Commercial Description: Edition 01/04 is a light, fruity, farmhouse ale, fermented with wild yeast harvested off the Muscari Flower atop Mt. Seymour, and hopped in our Copper Coolship with Cashmere, Mosaic & Motueka Hops.
