12 oz. canned 11-01-2017. Lightly hazy body has a fine bead of continuous bubbles supporting a sticky sponge of foam above. Nose is crisp with evergreen resin, citrus zest and bread. Front flavor is the same. Finish has ginger and wood with more resin. Smooth medium carbonation and almost medium bodied. Well balanced enough to be a sessioner which I can't often say about this beer style. Thanks to Party Bob. jvguarino (2) - - DEC 7, 2017 does not count
Excellent seasonal ale. I had three last night in Chicago. Can I get this in Texas?

Clear copper with a tall beige head.
Caramel, pine aroma.
Taste is slightly sweet caramel malt, mildly spicy pine/citrus.
A nice cooling spruce feel to it.
A little plain.......but a nice change from the typical Christmas cinnamon/nutmeg bombs.
12 ounce can. Copper colored pour topped by a small creamy beige head. Spicy, toasted malt aroma. Notes of evergreen and cardamom. Toasted malt flavor, ginger, spruce and bitter citrus peel. Spicy, bitter and dry finish. darb85 (305) - Canton, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2017

Can sampled in a glass, basaywhat (314) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2017
this beer was a dark red with brown hues, a little haze, there was a off-white cover, the bubbles had a yellow tint,
the nose had citrus hops, toasted malt, caramel, candy, some citrus fruit, faint spice,
the flavors were pine and citrus hops, toasted malt, caramel, spice, malt sweetness,
there was a light to medium hop bitterness with some pepper spice at the finish,
this drink had a light medium mouth feel, it was creamy and had average carbonation,
there was less sweetness in the flavor than the nose,
spice was nicely balanced (on the light side), a good beer.
12 oz can. Pours a nice amber mahogany brown color with a nice head. Nose is sweet and spicy with ginger and cinnamon. Taste is a little hoppy with orange citrus and full of flavor. Finish is fruity and sweet. Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2017
From draft flight at BIERmarkt USA on January 14, 2017. Red/amber color, nice fruit/hop nose, good bittersweet flavor with caramel and dark fruit. Isn’t overloaded with spice like a lot of Christmas beers. Good change of pace holiday brew. phranq (250) - - JAN 25, 2017
