Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks greg! Peaty and a bit salty. Very interesting style that i would like to look into more. Decent tropical fruit kick in there too. Very cool beer.

Visual: (cellared for 1 year). Pours clear light copper orange with a smallish 1cm head, 1mm fine retention, loose clusters of singular active streams.

Nose: sweet-farty medium-heavy barley malt, (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: sharp crisp bite, malty impression

Mid-palate: (lvl-4-sweetness), very short trace spruce, subtle background short tangy-sour, bready barley malt

Finish: slight grainy wheat malt, stealth lingering soft bitter hops

Summary: I’m not getting a whole lot of spruce, just a trace amount in the at the start of the mids. A good crisp mouthfeel and with a decent body, just not enough overall depth.

poisoneddwarf (2562) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2017
16.9 oz bottle from Pilgrim’s, rated last night. Aroma is wheat, lacto, lemony, minerals, oxidation. Pours lightly hazy golden with a one finger white head that falls into a big bubbly ring somewhat quick. Taste is very lightly tart. Not getting any salt or spruce. Pretty oxidized. A little underwhelming and obviously past its prime. 5,3,5,3,11

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light straw body. Aroma is mild lemon and salty bread... maybe. Taste has a mild salt throughout, the tiniest bit of lemon and then water. Texture is crisp. Interesting, but not much going on.

dnicolaescu (2607) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 4, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL from Koelschtrinker. Slightly hazy golden, small head. Clean malty Helles-like aroma with subtle fruity/cidery notes. Similar taste - sweet and tart. Surprisingly clean - nu funk, not much tartness and no spruce. Below threshold of perception saltiness. Full-bodied. Good.

bartlebier (4010) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2017
(backlog 2015, bottles served during blind tasting @What’s Brewing 2015, 2nd session). - A personal favourite as far as spruce needle infusions in modern sour beers go: moderate green bath foam spruce enhances, instead of overpowers, a natural tartness. The mineral wheat base works well with the scented coniferous resins, holding back to stay interesting to the bottom of each bottle. - Along with Brewcifer’s Hops&Needles Spruce IPA among the more succesfull recent attempts to bottle German terroir in a novel way.

Detergent-like coriander, harsh juniper bitterness, lemon, very light sourness. Tart dryness.

Golden orange in color... Aroma of spruce tips, salt... Flavor is very spruce forward, light salt, fruity on finish... Not terribly salty for a gose... Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer needs to be spruced up a bit. Tart and maybe a hint of salt in there. Lack of head leaves it looking and smelling a bit like some sort of cleaning fluid.
