The combination of spruce and juniper didn't work for me. I wish the cranberries would have come through more. Sorry Shorts but this was a drain pour...

Spruce and juniper not a good mix in my opinion. Would not recommend.

Not a cranberry fan but figured it may be in the background so I grabbed a bottle. I don't think the spruce was the turnoff for me, it was the combination of everything. Tasted terrible. After a forced 3rd sip I dumped it. Love Short's, not Juicy Tree.

Fresh bottle from Champane’s. Despite possible imperfections, this beer is a masterpiece of art. I wanted the hops, the spruce. I did not want cranberries, juniper. The entire experience is a bitter, a blend of hop bitter and traditional. Must be seek out. From orange hoppy initiation through dry herbal finish.
