From the bottle, it pours a hazy brown with a large tan head, dissipating to a moderate head. Aroma of fruit and alcohol. Taste is fruity and dangerous.

A nice beer for those looking to expand their palates with flavours of fruit. Definitely worth trying, but I won't stock my fridge with them. Better winter style beers are available.

Sweet cherry candy nose and front end with a slight spruce back. Fantastic Christmas ale
