22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toasted notes from the malts, plus floral hops. There is also a grape-like and herbal character from the flowers. Flavor a nice blend of these. Average texture. An interesting and unique beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Generic looking golden yellow with medium off-white head. Aroma herbal but a bit skunky. Medium-light body. Flavor is off-dry, fairly floral, light malt, lemony-spice, slightly sour finish. Drinkable for sure, interesting perhaps not memorable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, Batch 01, bottled 08/12. Pours a mildly hazy honey color with a 1 finger white head. Aroma has a very herbal quality to it. Not sure what heather smells like, but I guess this is what I am smelling. Some spicy notes too. White pepper perhaps. Flavor is spicy w/coriander, pepper and more heather. A touch of lavender too. Medium bodied with a bit of bitterness on the tongue. Delicious, interesting beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a nice bomber shared into a couple of sampling glasses. Light clear amber color. Aroma is sweet honey and dried flowers. Summer fields and sunshine smell. The heather smell is very strong but I do get some toast malt in there. Taste is fully sweet and just releases more of that perfume. Flavor stayed with me for hours after.
