Pours deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruitiness, spruce and red berries . Flavor is sweet and fruity with some red berries, spruce, bitterness and malt. Medium body, average carbonation.
Cask (Bishops Arms, Folkungagatan, Stockholm) - Dark brown with red tinges. Pine needles, caramel and dried fruit in the aroma. The taste is very interesting with notes of spruce, dried fruit and nuts. Interesting and enjoyable. Borresteijn (7595) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013

Flavour has the same qualities, nice red berry fruitiness, light zesty finish with some herbal bitterness. Light-bodied. olsvammel (7312) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Sample at SMÖF 2011. It poured a dark brown-amber liquid. Smell of caramel, malt and spruce. The taste was very special and hard to describe. sweet malty with some candy and spruce. An unusual beer, but I liked it.

Brown amber, hazy. Strangely herby spicy, a bit of funky notes. Cola- like flavours, pine needles. Earthy stuff. A lot of everything. For a spiced ale, ok. I like the slight funky things.
Draught at SMÖF 2011. Clear copper, medium beige head. Fruity and caramelly with some odd spicy notes with vague pine needles character. Medium bodied and smooth. Semi dry with medium bitterness. This was the "gold foam" winner at SMÖF 2011 which I find very odd. Beer5000 (6820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2012
On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, light caramel, fruity hops and pine. Flavor is soft malty, caramel, pleasant bitterness, fruit and pine. It actually gives me some feeling of forest in the flavor. Medium body. Very nice and balanced.

Rich, well balanced. Spruce juice, spices, nice bitter finish. Interesting!
