A bit like Gin. A rather piney astringent taste.

They're a primary flavor in gin, sort of medicinal and piney, but their flavor is very subtle in this recipe. (So if you have a hard time finding them, you can feel free to leave them out without affecting the flavor much.)

very piney and resinous tasting, but quite pleasant..

they are awesome! A little sweet, and yes, remind me of a pine tree, but very subtly. It's a great flavor combo with cranberries. Penzey's probably has them. Or Whole Foods.
