3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden blonde color with nice two finger head... Aromas are subtle with bits of ripe fruit and a touch of herbal spice. On the palate this beer is bright floral with a slight spruce sweetness and much less astringency then other spruce beers Ive had. Well balanced beer with good earthy woodsy flavors balanced off the bright fresh spruce flavors and bitter hops. Complex
