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.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Draft at Casual Pint. Hazy copper with a small head. Nose is light sour fruit and caramel, with hints of spiciness. Flavor is sour cherry and apple with a touch of ginger and a finish of spruce. Medium body is tingly and acidic. Think this one was infected.
