I like it. It’s a different beer, the heather really adds something to it. It’s very drinkable, light and slightly sweet, with a wonderful nose.

One of my top 5 favorite beer! It only comes in "gift pack" here in Ottawa (Canada). I love both Fraoch and Grozet.

I love this beer. Light to medium body, semi sweet maltiness, covered with a lovely floral accent. Proof is in the pudding. It doesn’t have to have a million frickin’ IBU’s to be good.

What a beer! First of all, it’s that it’s made at all - using heather instead of hops. Not what I would have thought as being floral. It has a nice persistant head. Very spicy aroma. The flavor is a mixture of malt, hint of alcohol, some bitterness, marmalade, yeast. Funky color. Nice lace. got this in a beer of the month but they have it also at the Bodega downtown here in La Crosse.

I love this beer, the only problem I have with it is I think it needs more heather.

Honey aroma with matching taste but the finish is dry. Interesting floral notes throughout. Hazy light orange as in some some honeys. Body is medium with good mouth feel. Light white head with minimal lacing. Would make a great summer beer.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 appearance: Pale yellow with small white head.
smell: Hard to put my finger on it. It’s a kind of herbal, medicinal, nectar, flower and tea like smell.
taste: Herbal tea and light floral malt taste. I get a touch of lavender and a bit of nectar/honey sweetness. It’s hard to pin-point what’s exactly going on. It just works and is lovely balanced.
mouthfeel: It’s like satin. Very smooth. Medium carbonation. Has a dry finish and leaves a lovely after-taste, wanting more.
overall: I’m quite surprised by this beer. It’s not your regular ale and definitely has a unique flavor combo going on. I love the creamy like round feeling of the taste and mouthfeel. It’s very fluid and refreshing, yet with a dry finish and leaves you with a after-taste that wants more. Actually grew on me as one of my most favorite summer beers.

Interesting, lots of taste. Malty, flowery. Definite red wine aftertaste.
