57/1875) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Elmo Doesn't Love You! by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **;  a Thursday night  cask;  their Strawberry Saison with basil, cucumber and Ekuanot hops;  basil is very prominent in the nose;  I needn't have been so worried about this one - it tastes like a fresh, carbonated summer salad;  very soda like;  the cucumber accentuates the fruitiness of the saison while the basil plays off the spiciness and herbal aspects;  I found it refreshing;  yet another example of what I imagine to be a patio beer being served in the middle of the winter;

58/1876)  The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Double IPA:  **1/2;  7.8%, 75 ibu;  brewed with Simcoe, Centennial and Mosaic hops;  a bit like their usual IPA but amped up;  more piney, earthy and citrusy notes;  very nice indeed;
