When I live in Oregon I often enjoyed this Spruce Ale from Siletz Brewing:
It has a pretty bad rating on RateBeer, mainly folks complaining about infected bottles. I'm surprised. 6 years ago, I had several very good bottles of this without any bad ones. It is a lighter spruce ale. The only other commercial beer with spruce tips i've had is Alaskan Winter Ale, but I'd like to make something more summer-y.
Maybe a pale ale with some wheat DME and some steeped malted wheat? I'd like to make a spruce summer ale, and i wonder if the spruce and wheat would play nicely.
