(50 cl) Une bière jaune pâle qui est légèrement voilée. Une tête mousseuse qui résiste un long moment. Des arômes francs et des saveurs agréables d’essence d’épinette. Un sucre bien discret: j’adore cet aspect. Une bouche étonnante et très singulière avec un corps moyen et une effervescence pondérée. Une texture qui est intéressante, douce et même soyeuse. Une finale qui est cependant écourtée par le passage précipité de notes vertes et poivrées qui se dégagent des entrailles du conifère. Une bière facile à boire, à condition d’aimer l’épinette. Je vais acheter à nouveau cette bière

Bouteille 500 ml. 5.5%. Couleur jaune pâle voilée, mousse blanche. Arômes d’épinette, malt et bois trempé. En bouche, malt, épinette assez présente mais pas trop, bel équilibre, malt. Finale en épinette et amertume. Très bonne.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle: Poured a light hazy yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of spruce notes is quite powerful with nice light dry malt notes. Taste is an interesting and unique mix between some spruces notes with light herbal notes and a dry non-descript malt base. Body is a bit fuller then average with good carbonation. I’m not the biggest fan of spruce but this was an interesting experiment.

GarnotingPete (771) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2011
Bière couleur de blé, trouble et coiffée d’un large col blanc laissant peu de dentelle au verre. Des arômes marqués de conifères (de l’épinette, je gage...) et de résine. Moyennement amère, sans aucun sucre résiduel. Bière au corps plutôt léger, à l’effervescence délicate. Elle se termine en arômes, plutôt rapidement. Je trouve que l’épinette est beaucoup moins farfelue au brassage de la bière que ne peuvent l’être d’autres "fruitages"...

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
Bière de couleur blonde d’apparence trouble qui dégage une odeur très intéressante d’épinette contenant des effluves d’ether. En bouche, la gazéification et le goût d’épinette se bousculent laissant au passage des notes surettes amères qui restent longtemps en bouche. Finale agréable. Désaltérant.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
A pretty light golden brew covered by a tight, lasting 1cm cover. Straightforward and agreeable aroma to the spruce lover. Outrageously dominated by Spruce, it remains relatively drinkable thanks to its lean body and generally low residual sugars. The Hameau yeast does not take too much room here and the basic pale malts serve a mere support function. Smooth, soft carbonation grow into an almost foamy texture as limey, woodsy, fresh spruce. Unlike hops, it’s not really a flavor I could see myself drinking lots of regularly, but it’s a pleasant and refreshing ale and I’m looking forward to trying more of these experiments. When focused and unassuming, these flavored beers may not be show-stoppers, but they’re educative and a nice change of pace.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2011
A sickly pale blonde ale with a thin creamy white head. Aroma of sweet sickly malt and sweetened spruce extracts. However, in mouth a smooth biscuitty malt with light piney British hops, the pineyness coming from the coniferous material, like a smooth British pale ale. Refreshing. 4.99$ from Peluso, 2 mo. old.
