From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x11. Great aroma, taste and feel. Very refreshing.

A: Orange with almost a touch of red, cloudy, no visible carbonation and a finger of creamy white head.




S: Pine needles, orange candy, popcorn, malt, melon as in a honey dew.



T: Pine needles, starts off with a light bitterness that like chili peppers, increases in strength to the end of the brew. Orange, grapefruit. Light sweetness. Not getting the ginger, though the little burn in the throat may be that or alcohol.



M: Thick, resinous, with a solid almost foamy carbonation.



O: I love the idea behind this beer, make a hoppy pine needle induced beer for Christmas, rather than the typical winter warmer or spiced up dark Belgian. Great label of reindeer eating missal toe. Got this brew in Bangkok at Mikkeller bar, drank in Kunming March 15th, 2015.
