Poured from a 650ml bottle. Good for Phillips for trying this. They used fresh picked spruce tips to brew this beer. It definitely smells quite "foresty." Spruce is such an unusual aroma for a beer that it's hard to sense much beyond that. Same thing with the flavour of this. It is *strongly* flavoured with spruce, which means you don't get cheated on the "evergreen" part of this ale, but if the taste of wood or trees or the forest is off-putting to you, you might want to avoid this. We can't see drinking much more than a taste of this.
