Winter poured with a small, bone colored head. Beer color is a bright amber, and there is a lot of fine sediment. The aroma has some fruit, caramel sweetness, spice. The taste is fruity, really more berry-like. Bready malt. Although not really bitter, there is a hoppy dryness towards the end. Malt and fruit aftertaste. I guess it is the spruce tips that are providing the fruit/berry note to the taste. This is a very unusual beer, with a wide range of flavors. Very enjoyable.
