17/1835)  The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  The Plea of Esposito 2.0 by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **;  the brewmaster was going for an Oud Bruin but couldn't source the yeast;  this is their brown ale with balsamic vinegar, French and American oak;  since last time, which I missed out on, the American oak is new, they dropped the Cherry extract and reduced the balsamic hence the 2.0;  the strong balsamic nose throws one;  mild fruity grape (replaces sugar notes of the brown which I tried for comparison);  soft balsamic finish; I was not expecting to like this one;

The name of today's cask refers to this moment in Canadian history:  The Plea of Esposito

18/1836) Home:  Saison Du Japon by Kiuchi Brewery of Japan  *1/2;  6%;  brewed with koji (malted rice) which is also used to make sake, for Heaven's sake;  also brewed with wheat and yuzo;  fresh mango-like nose;  fresh fruitiness with a saison-like finish;
