3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler sample from beerpig317. Pours a clear amber with a big off white head. The aroma has big spruce and evergreen notes, herbs, lemony citrus, yams and ginger. The flavor was much of the same with the spruce dominating a bit. Definitely a strange brew.
