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.

Appearance - The beer was a pale yellow color with a soft white head of about 1/2 inch.

Smell - Cranberry comes through initially in the aroma with the spruce following.

Taste - My first impression is that this is not nearly as bitter as Spruce Pilsner. The cranberry takes some of the edge off. Spruce makes the initial impression followed by the cranberry toward the back. The spruce comes through as more sour toward the back.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation falls in the range that is appropriate for the style. The spruce is allowed to make an impression.

Overall - I chased this one for a while. Now I might just drive back to Michigan to get some more.
