Ungstrup (37581) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with hoppy notes of grass. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of alcohol and spruce needles, leading to a dry grassy finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a dense off-white head leaving laces. Very fresh piney aroma. Medium-bodied with lightly sweet pale malts. Distinctly bitter and astringent finish. An odd one, interesting but far from harmonious. 311008 scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Dark amber, creamy white head. Blasts of evergreen and spruce aromas rest on swirls of citrus and wet pine needles. Flavor is a bitter sappy spruce bite from beginning to end. Did I just drink a tree? Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Thumbs up for being unique. I like it, but don’t know how often I could drink it… uhre (384) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
Aroma of spruce. The beer is golden with a small head. Flavor of pines and perfume. joergen (28123) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008

Fruity and perfumed flavour of hops, spruce and pine needles with notes of candies.

shorts smagning med klubben. Det er nok den bedste i aften. Uklar gul/orange med et hvidt skum. Masser af "natur", gran nåle, skov, harpiks, rosmarin, sødt med masser af humle. Guf guf! sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2008
Shorts tasting with The Club +a few. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Smells of rose hybs and spruce. Extremely bitter but very well balanced by a strong sugary sweetness. Strong hoppy aromas. Also aromas of eldeberry flowers, spruce and some wood and resin. Low carbonation. Medium body. Bitter finish with a hint of warming alcohol. Best of the Shorts tasting.

Bottle at home. Clear golden - white head. Sweetness, high bitterness, pine forrest, resin, light malty body, pilsner malty, nice hoppy. Lovely clean and perfect. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2008
Dark golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is interesting enough, bordering oddness: Forest shrubbery, spruce, medicine and peppermint. Flavour is bitter in an unpleasant way, and the spruce tends to turn into turpentine.
Hoppy beer with spruce? Interesting. A ton of spruce? No subtleties left. thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle @ Kolding Shorts Tasting, 18.09.08.
Pours a great, clear golden with a medium, frothy, white head. Fine duration. Aroma has a ton of pine, forest, wood and hops. Fine mouthfeel, rather creamy. Flavour is just far too much, an entire pine tree dumped into my beer. Hops and mint as well.
