3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dr dre made this song called gin and juice... could have been this beer he was thinking of.
Pours a piss-yellow moisty body med a clear white head. The taste is bitter, and parfumed like an overparfumed sweating southeuropean body. I taste christmas spieces, alot of spruces and alcohol with a parfumed and bitter finish - and strong. The palate is thick and full-bodied...
This is the beer-version of the parfume: Davidoff Cool Water

Bottle, courtesy of Enjoyit. Hazy orange, small white head. Aroma has tons of ginger, banana, rosemary, perfume, lavender, dishwasher-soap, some spruce maybe. Taste is very chemical with pine, more soap and more chemicals.

Sampled at the Carolina Crew gathering in Greenville. Wow... a Christmas tree in a bottle. Aroma was dominated by the Christmas tree/spruce aroma. Somewhat astringent and very dominant spruce flavor. A bit too one-dimensional and tough to drink for my liking. Thanks to Paul for bringing this though - definitely a unique beer and worth trying.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2009 Tasted at the Carolina Crew gathering, Greenville - thanks to Paul Philippon for sharing! Okay this holiday season rip off a branch of christmas tree, chew on for a while and thats the flavor you have here. Tried it twice, but its just to in your face with resinous pine and piney hops. Slightly hot finish. BLAM!!! is right
