Amber-orangeish color, with a thick small creamy white head, leaving laces, a sweet mild earthy blue pine niddles nose, with a subtle juniper fruity note, a nice coniferous forest accent, with a toasty malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasted malt, mild , pine wood character of spruce bleue pine niddles, with a green coniferous forest, and cedary accents, with a subtle fruity juniper, and a hint of flowery hop, leading towards a fruity, piney finish.

TaktikMTL (7968) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
Verre de dégustation, provenant d’un fût, dégusté au Festival Bières et Saveurs 2007 (Chambly, QC). Arôme: Odeur d’épinette avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée pâle. Saveur: Goût d’épinette avec une pointe de miel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’épinette en arrière goût. (Rating #1213)

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2007
Clear copper body with a small off-white head. Conifer resin flavour well harmonized with the soft-caramel. Minimal hops presence if any and even less fruity or spicy hints. Smooth carbonation. Really soft overall. This beer main purpose is to put forward a spruce resin taste with little to divert the attention away from it. And it does that very well. What it lacks in complexity it makes-up for it in originality. Fun beer, really worth a try. In a little over three months I’ll be decorating an unprocessed beer.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2011 My Bottom Line:
Honeyed malts lavish attention onto the spruce needles which are intelligently deployed from aroma to aftertaste. The result is quite sweet, but remains another fun and drinkable Bedondaine experiment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam sits atop the clear pale orange.
-Carbonation is soft and lets the flavors express themselves.
-Some citrusy spiciness add complexity.
-Spruce flavors are well integrated, replacing hops, it seems. They seem to be able to last quite long aromatically too; an aged version was still very pleasant.
-Alcohol is not a factor in the flavor profile.

On tap at a few times.

Quevillon (3172) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
Bu au Festival Bière et Saveur 07 (fut). Rousse pale, peu de collet. Arome d’épinette très présant, avec un peu d’épices sucrés et de malte caramelisé. Goût d’épinette sûrette, avec un peu de malte doux. Très intéressant!
