Sampled at brewery. Cloudy pale copper with a light beige head that mostly fades to a thin lattice. Huge spruce freshly split branches and herbaceous, mint and chemicals. Crystal says that is how a urinal puck would taste.

On tap at Bedondaine et Bedons Ronds, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is very floral and mint-like, with the obvious spruce tips blasting through. Flavour of spruce, sort of mint-like qualities and spices, but dominated by the spruce. Interesting one - no off-flavours, just unorthodox and bizarre.

12 oz glass on tap at grand cru event. Slightly hazy blond pour with snow white head. Aroma is like rolling around in freshly cut spruce branches, tons of tropical fruit aromas too, mainly pineapple. You feel afraid to bring the glass to your lips because you feel your lips might stick to it. They do, but not because of the sap. Super fresh sprucey flavor, some malty sweetness, almost minty with a lingering bitter finish like fine hops. Beer had medium body and good carbonation. Surprisingly very good.

Objectively speaking: For a spruce beer, a remarkably tasty and rounded ale.
I like: Excellent spruce extraction, not overwhelming, but tasty, aromatic and fresh. No stickiness on the palate. Fresh cerealic malt base never steals the show. Gentle herbal undertones. Sweet, yet textured enough, medium-full bodied and cleansing, active and fitting carbonation. Good-looking as well with its minimally hazy bright auburn hue. The head is gorgeous, climbing. Surprisingly drinkable.
I dislike: I really liked it, but it’s not a flavour orientation that requires a second pint.

en fût sur place, encore une belle bière cuivrée, odeur d’épinette et goût d’épinette, mais pas de classique bière d’épinette (soda) mais de vrai bon goût d’épinette

Festival Bières et Saveurs 2008. A spruce beer, which is what they gave soldiers in Eastern Canada to ward off scurvey and replenish vitamins, even though they were posted on land. But hey they enjoyed it. Good thing the British were around whenever the Americans invaded. Oh, and my dad was still given this when posted earlier in the World War in Quebec when he was with the Royal Engineers. Pale yellow with a white head and lace. Creamy yet below average mouthfeel. Spruce made it quite sour. Herbal aroma. I had a much more interesting variation of this by DDC years ago. Oh, and my dad’s friends brewed a terrible version of this when I was young.

Pours a clear dark gold color with a thin white head. Aroma of spruce sap, cereals and menthol. Flavor of spruce sap, cereals and menthol, it’s very sweet. The body is light to medium with a liquorous and sticky texture and gentle carbonation. Nicely done.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
On tap at Bieres et Saveurs Chambly. It has a honey color with a thin white head. The taste is of pine and just an after taste of fruit.It is sweet but it just is not my kind of beer, but that does not mean that it is not good.
