270/1544) Home:  Wellington 30th Anniversary Ale by Wellington Brewery of Ontario:  **1/2;  8.2%, 40 ibu;  brewed with heather tips and elderberries;  a blend of two beers, an ale brewed with elderberries and aged for three months in Kentucky bourbon barrels and a dry-hopped imperial golden ale infused with heather tips;  nose of berries, oak;  flavours of berries, bourbon, vanilla, oak and alcohol;  the alcohol is particularly strong at the finish;  very complex with an elderberry and hop finish;

Happy anniversary, Wellington!

271/1545) Home:  Vintage Ale 2015 Harvest Ale  by Collingwood Brewery of Ontario:  **;  6.9%, 35 ibu;  brewed with wildflower honey and fresh hops from Meaford;  unfiltered and as a result there is a sediment at the bottom of the bottle;  the hop head in me asks, why add honey?;  nose is sweet honeyed malt;  hops are largely offset by honey;  still, a dry after taste;
