While we are fans of Amsterdam, our experience at Amsterdam Brew House has been hit or miss. Sometimes we have a perfectly good time but other times it’s not so fun.
This weekend was one of the better ones. After hitting up the absolutely boring cabane à sucre happening at sugar beach we went to Amsterdam to clean the bad taste out of our mouths!
One of the beers I had while there was ‘howl’ which was described as a mixed fermentation farmhouse ale.
The beer was served in a wine glass.
Sadly, howl is not available at the LCBO. You can of course find some at the Amsterdam Brew House and many other locations across the city.
Appearance: Unfiltered. Peach colored. Thick lasting white head.
Aroma: Apricot and peaches with cream. Hint of sourness.
Taste: Suddenly malty! Bit of brine and light rye bread.
Aftertaste: soft spicy rye or other spicy wheat flavour.
Overall: Unique and enjoyable!
