look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dull orange with a loose head that dissipates towards the edges. Nose is all spruce - smells very much like a pine forest car freshener. Taste follows nose; however, the spruce is thankfully less intense but still quite strong. There are also notes of citrus. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively carbonation and a slight acidity. Overall, the spruce is a bit too overpowering. It pretty much tastes like what I expect a Christmas tree would taste like.

Serving type: bottle

A-Pours darker than I thought it would be. Not sure why I thought it would be lighter but it's copper.

S-Obviously sprucey. Pine and spruce with some secondary hoppy scents of citrus.

T-Pine oil and spruce. Grass along with some citrus. Caramel. Clearly, the spruce/pine is dominant here but I do like that it isn't the sole flavor.

M-Medium bodied. A bit of resin. Medium carbonation. Bitter. Not all too drinkable though because the spruce is a bit taxing after a few sips.

O-Pretty tasty. Well made. This is a one I am happy to have tried but probably wouldn't go for another pint.

Serving type: on-tap
