Thanks to cfrancis for this. Pours a murky brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits, spicy herbs, pine. Taste is yeast and cloves, some sourness then has some sweetness and fruity notes. Interesting beer that is easy to sip on.

Huge difference drinking this fresh. Overall taste sours after a month. Fresh this is a wonderfully warning winter beer.

Has a murky brown like colour, Aromas of fresh pine and spruce, malted and caramel candy. Has a sour taste profile with a tangy zesty finish which is surprising given the aroma on the nose.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
3 finger head that go’s away a few seconds or so later. Carbonated. Smell’s kind foresty(twigs,ect)juicy and mabye a litle spice or something. Taste is kinda mudy like with some juiciness some twig,stick,forsty like tate. A little spice/yeast and stuff like that. Heavy bodied,leaves a little sour saliva in my mouth and a few sips have a bit of a alcoholic burn for a few second’s. Odd in an interesting way. Different bottle then picture. Cheer’s!

Spicy aroma with ginger, lemon, star anise, faint clove, and brown sugar. Hazy dark brown under a thin, tan ring and patches. Sour flavour right up front, followed by pleasant brown sugar and lemon and faint spices (see aroma) and no bitterness. Light to medium-light body, moderate carbonation, lingering sourness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy red. Smells a little hoppy. The gale adds a different bitter angle to this beer but the overall product is a little gimmicky. Bottle.
