Spring Spruce Tip Blonde

I bottled it tonight after 7 days in secondary.  FG is 1.012 which keeps the ABV at 5.5%.  This might prove to be a tasty beer!  Color is a deep golden with some orange hue to it.  Aromas of sweet malt, citrus and fresh pine on the nose.  Flavors of sweet malt, citrus, and light fresh pine with a slight resinous pine finish and a hint of bitterness.  I am anxiously waiting for this one to carbonate!  My friends and fellow brewers, I don't think you will be disappointed!  It is brewed to the Blonde Ale style with fresh spruce tips from my own pine tree added.  Nothing like keeping to fresh local ingredients!  I look forward to sharing this one!  Spruce tips aren't just for Winter beers!
