Pours a light golden colour, with a hint of cloud through the body. Off-white head that doesn't stick around. Not a great-looking beer, to be honest.

Sweet nose, with mild hints of piney floral notes. Slight nutty edge to an otherwise fairly bland cereal grain nose.

Slightly mediciney on the palate, with mild hints of pine sprigs. Sweet overall with maybe too much malt. I was intrigued by the concept of this beer but I feel they just haven't managed to get the pine needle character through. Simple and quite bland.

Not a bad body, but there' no noticeable texture.

Bit disappointed with this. Would like more herbal, sprucey notes. Just doesn't really have much to it at all.

On-tap at GABS. Apparently, this is a beer brewed using a recycled Christmas tree, including the bark, needles and tips. I say "apparently" for good reason...

Pours a moderately hazed pale gold colour with absolutely no head whatsoever. It looks completely uncarbonated and flat, and to be honest, pretty unappealing.

Aroma is extremely weak. Nothing at all besides a hint of old meat bone and perhaps a phantom hint of vegetation. Really, there's almost nothing to it at all.

Nothing on the front of the palate either. Only around the middle do you get a hint of dust, some grain husk and a wheedling sweetness like lemon sugar. Some dirty yeast on the finish, but it's pretty empty overall. Feel is smooth at least.

Really, this was nothing like what was described. I can't help but feel that they came up with the concept of the brew without knowing how it would turn out. I can only hope they're a bit embarrassed about it now.
