Pours Triaminic orange with pretty much zero head, just a little perimeter of foam. Nose is actually a little tough to get anything from, smells a little sweet and lightly hopped, but not detecting the spruce tips the packaging says it's brewed with. There is a real berry-like quality in the flavor, and I was getting a little of that in the nose, too. It's got a blackberry jam element to it...is that spruce tips? I don't know. All I know is this tastes really freakin good. Nice medium mouthfeel, bitter on the back end, some detectable alcohol, but not a huge-alcohol beer, really. Low carbonation. Overall, I like this one quite a bit, and would get it again.
