Bottle from the LCBO. Very pale cloudy yellow with a small white head. Nose is quite floral with some honey and grass as well as vanilla. Moderately sweet throughout with very light spice in the finish. Mouth is light and thin with soft carbonation. Nice and refreshing even if a little watery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance with golden color, slightly cloudy liquid and very little head.
Floral aroma with the peculiarity of Heather.
Flavor with vegetable flavor, plant, floral, etc.
Very little carbonated, surprising, but in the end I consider a good beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a golden honey colored body with a lightly hazy appearance. There is not much of head, just a small light foamy covering that fades out to nothing quickly. There is no lacing to mention at all. The aroma has an interesting full floral bouquet with some honey like sweetness, some light grain notes and fresh salty sea air. There is an odd dry grain with a hint of mineral flavor like sea air and a solid floral character throughout. Underneath there are some sweeter malt, honey and buttery notes that mix with the floral heather notes. The floral notes build up to the finish and add a pleasant bitterness and dryness to it. The palate is slick and smooth with light carbonation and a light to medium body.

The aroma was light vanilla, with mild hay. I loved the appearance, nice light orange/yellow color and mine had lots of apparently small heather flower pieces suspended in the beer. Tasted lightly sweet with hay and mild spice. Smooth and full bodied on the palate. Overall a great and different beer I would definitely recommend to a friend.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very faint; a little bit of honey, a little bit of peach, probably some herbs. Pours yellowish orange with a minute head. The taste is slightly sweet, even slightier bitter, spicy. Body halfway between low and medium, almost flat, finish sweet and a tad tart. Nothing special; much as I’m pleased I got a chance to taste such an ancient recipe, I’m happy we also have different ones these days.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pours straw/orange with slight haze...nice head. Not getting a lot on the nose...maybe low on aromatic hops? Detected slight citrus note though. Hard to place taste...malt comes through and isn’t overwhelmed by the bittering hops. I have no idea what heather tastes or smells like, so it must be what is adding feint floral taste. Malty finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Limpido color oro con schiuma bianca poco persistente. Al naso è leggermente mielosa e floreale con un sentore erbaceo piuttosto confuso; al palato è dolciastra e fruttata ma evolve in fretta verso un amarognolo "medicinale". Corpo lieve, struttura debolmente oleosa, effervescenza debole. Non è fatta male ma non incontra il mio gusto.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottiglia da 330 ml. Color oro con schiuma bianca, fine e di poca tenuta. Al naso offre poco, sentori di miele e lievito. Al palato palato delude un pò con sentori di crosta di pane iniziali, risulta un pò watery all’inizio e astringente sul finale amarognolo.
