Thanks to 5000 for sending me this beer. Excited to try this new tiny Washington brewery. The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of spruce notes with some biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is very similar with a few added notes. I get some strong spruce and pine notes up front, but they are complimented by some biscuit malt, Belgian yeast, light orange citrus and toffee notes. All of these notes go together fairly well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one and look forward to trying other Propolis beers in the future.

750, capped. Pours a cloudy medium brown with a big rocky platinum blonde head. Mild floral nose showing honey, some of that airy woodsy spruce, and a bit of honey. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, honey, spruce, and a bit of light spice on the mid palate. Soft finish.

Nose of honey a little caramel touch bread light spruce tip sweeter bubblegum clove phenols. Pours hazy golden thin head. Flavors.of bread dough clovey sweet bubblegum spruce notes lingering clove and spruce and bubblegum. Smooth nice.bodied but a tad too phenolic for style for my preference. Would probably rate higher if it were a spice/herb/veg or traditional ale.
