Super Spruce! This damn beer was on my wants list for…six years? I dunno. I love spruce beers. 16 oz. can split with my wife.

Very light yellow with a bit of haze to it (not that kind) with an all-fruit nose of green apple, lemon, and, yes, spruce. I like.

Super Spruce bites. Lots of gentle sour with a spare chintilla of spruce that might be overlooked if you didn’t have your readers on (that one’s for you, fellow olds). The sour melds to make this feel more like lemon, without the true face one makes. Half this can was just fine.

Well. Needs more spruce. Then probably some more. And saltiness. Mostly just tastes like a standard sour. Decent enough.

Bottle. From around 2015.

This was an easy drinking sour. Had a big lemon/lime flavor. Very sprite like. The spruce wasn’t that apparent. Was hoping for a much bigger pine flavor.

A - Pours a lightly hazed bright yellow with a large fizzy white head. The head dissipates quickly leaving leaving spotty lacing.

S - Aroma is lemon, green apple skins, grapefruit pith and spruce tips.

T - The taste is lemon, lime, sea salt, wheat a good punch of spruce tips in the finish.

M - Light body with medium/high carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - Really impressive Gose. The flavors are bright and refreshing which make this the perfect beer for a warm day.

Had this for the first time from a can packaged on 11/2019. Reviewing from a bottle packaged 10/2017 (says to drink fresh lol).

Initial ratings 4.25 across the board.

Golden straw with half-finger loose white foam head. Low retention and little if any lacing

Upfront big grapefruit candy and spruce (not pine). Lemony yeast on the back end along with a candy sour scent

Sprite, grapefruit, pine needles on the low.

Round and fluffy, somewhat fizzy, medium to full umami with good carbonation, even after 2 1/2 years. Not a lot to say about this in a bad light. One of my favorite beers of all time (Ratings won’t reflect this) I love spruce and I think sahati is one of the coolest and most beautiful styles of beers. I know this isn’t that but damn, it’s pretty close.

16 ouncer, "Canned on 11/01/19" stamped on the bottom of the can.

Pours out lighter, near golden in color, with a moderate haze and under a whispy off white cap, film and fine ringed and scattered lacing.

On the nose, this one is loaded with lemon/lime notes.

Bright, fresh and refreshing... loaded on the palate with biting, clean and moderately tart lime notes. Different, well crafted and interesting ...worth a try
