Reviewed from notes. Bomber bottle.

A: Pours a clear orange with a fluffy half-inch thick white head which leaves splotchy lace.

N: Notable spruce and pine with some citrusy and fruity undertones.

T: Malty with slightly sweet, earthy honey, and spices from the spruce tips.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Bittering hop and sweet malty finish with lingering spruce/pine spice.

O: Interesting creation. Worth trying.

Pulled from Ray's Beer Store on North Ave in Wauwatosa...

A- A very bodied amber color, very clear with a nice foam on top. Very natural looking beer, I hope the feel is smooth as the appearance.

S- A very light hoppy smell with strong fruit aroma, but not sweet. Like the location of Pembine, it smells very outdoorsy, the spruce must be balancing the hops and citrus.

T- When a beer moves you to sigh, it must be good. What I love about this taste is that it's not to complex, very easy to handle, but very deep. There is a bit of sincerity in this beer. It has a very straight forward taste and something different that the usual IPA drinker would either appreciate or hate.

M- The spruce really sits well, almost feels like the equivalent to a mighty fine Gin. Th spruce really balances the hops and citrus taste, the humble creativity is felt as it holds in the after taste.

O- This feels like a beer you have one on one with a good friend or brother. Just feels like a good person, a good soul brewed this beer. I really look forward to drinking this again and sharing it with someone. But for my first experience, I'm taking it all in myself. I'll for sure try more beers from this brewery. My In-laws cottage is in Pembine, I'm surprised I haven't seen/heard of it before.
