On tap at pub in Astoria. Light gold body. Nose is grainy, floral. Taste is grassy and skunky. Creamy and syrupy texture. Okay. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 22, 2016
A weird one. Like a teenager’s lip gloss. Sweet and strangely fruity with a hint of typical spruce underneath. luttonm (6833) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2016
The Yard, Seattle. Slight cloudy yellow, small white foam. minty, forest aroma. banana ester, soft and clean. Fruity pine-spruce. Soft herbal-veggie. Nice spruce flavor but body is a bit off, flabby.

Pale and hazy. Has almost a relish/mayo taste. Weird. Very sweet, no real balance, a dash of fruity, nothing I could drink a pint of. neepsntatties (2062) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2014
On tap at fort George. Colour...very light straw with a thin white head. Nose...not much spruce but a light honey like aroma is present. Palate...lightly frothy with indiscernable fruit and clover honey. There’s a lingering sweetness and a husky finish. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap at Bier Thirty in Bown... Lightly hazed orange... thin white head.. spotty lacing. IndianaRed (5057) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Nose shows grassy and not big "Pine or Spruce"... Not really herbaceous either.. just grassy with a bigger than expected pale malt/yeasty fruitiness (Belgian Yeast used here?)
Not sure what to make of this one... the Pine is present but never really wants to jump out like I think a brew of this style would. A bit too fruity on the palate for my liking.. residual malts add too much to the esters and distract from the piney additions.
Weird and never really comes together.. I think they are on to something, but this rendition is probably a wash... I would sample this one next go-around.
On Tap at Bier:Thirty Very cloudy light beige/orange with a very dense thick sandy head. Light pale fruity aroma. Muffled by the head. Very plesent soft fruit flavoros. Some raspberry, and some pear and a little yeatiness. If this is Spruce, it is very mild. Very light and tasty. Soft creamy palate. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2014
On draught at 2014 NAOBF - pours cloudy copper with small head, nose of malt, light spruce, grass. Taste is more grassy than spruce. Alright, just not ad much spruce as expected.
