Lightly foggy orange beer with a largeish foamy head. Aroma is fruity, fresh, oranges, sweet fruits and hint resinous. Taste is delicious fruits, oranges, piney hops. Smooth medium plus mouthfeel, finishes bitter and a bit stingy, the pine needles? Dunno but I really liked this!

Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with medium white head. Aroma is orange, bitter grapefruit, mandarin and hints of spruce. Taste is medium acidic, medium to very bitter and light sweet. Body is light oily with fizzy carbonation. Finish is long and mostly bitter with notes of orange, grapefruit, lime, lemon, mandarin and pepper. Very refreshing and well balanced but not a typical Christmas brew.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a yellow blonde color with a medium white head. Aroma was light pine notes, sweet malt. Lots of pine in this, which makes sense because this has pine needles in it. Light bitter finish. Refreshing.

I thought this came together pretty well. Orange peel and pine needles add an interesting element to this. Pours blonde with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Hoppy with good malt backbone. Tap at Churchkey.
