This is quite the alluring beer -- pours an attractive coppery/brass color, with a small head and tight carbonation. Tastes like many other winter warmers -- however, the bottle says it is brewed with spruce tips, and I this characteristic comes through, I think, not as woodsy or piney as I would have expected, but almost like a reaspberry fruitiness. In fact, this reminds me alot of the flavor of Berkshire Brewing's Raspberry Strong Ale - though not quite as malty, sweet, and raspberry filled. It has a good crisp snappy hop finish that keeps it dry enough to avoid a cloying flavor. A winter warmer that I would certainly enjoy a few pints of in the winter if it were available near me.
