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!
