293/2111) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Randy's Cheap Date by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **;  4.7%, 17 ibu;  this week's Thursday night cask is the previous monthly feature beer, the raspberry ale, with cocoa nibs and lactose;  the nose is mostly raspberry;  flavours of raspberry sweetened by lactose which also softens the mouthfeel;  dry chocolate finish with raspberry;

294/2112) The 3 Brewers, Heartland:  Milkshake IPA by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  **1/2;  8%, 80 ibu;  the most recent feature beer, brewed with oats and wheat and apple purée;  opaque;  strong, piney, resiny nose;  bitter resiny notes and bitter citrus;  citrusy finish;  some suggest it is more along the lines of a Vermont/New England style IPA than a milkshake IPA and I haven't tried enough to comment (very much looking forward to Bellwoods' Milkshark) save to say it is uncommonly good;
