3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A great surprise: heather frangrance is like Saaz hops, rich and floral. It took a few sips to not miss the bitterness (which is slightly vegetal). Imagine a massively dry-hopped, low-bitterness scottish ale. Nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Degustate in bottiglia da 33 centilitri. All’aspetto giallo chiaro, buona schiuma, abbastanza persistente. Mediamente carbonata, gusto fresco. Il sapore fluttua tra due poli il fruttato che ci sembrava fragola invece sembra sia mirto e l’erbaceo che avevamo identificato come un eucalipto invece sembra sia Erica. Caratteristica ma poco consona al nostro gusto.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber, clear, ring of white head. Sweet floral aroma. Flavor is vegetal and a bit soapy, but not in a bad way. Mellow.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow with no head. Aroma is malty and a bit herbal. Smells (and tastes a bit) like the mash stage of whiskey. Tastes like it has undertones of honey, and the herbal/heather flavor is pleasant. Sweet without being sticky.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with a pillowy white head. Aroma is spicy, floral, yeast. Flavor is also spicy and floral, though a bit less spicy, with honey on the finish. Enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, and a caveat up front that this one has been sitting around for a while. Admittedly, I shouldn’t rate this, but a) there’s 1300+ ratings already and b) how many people put in a rating based on a 3 oz pour 4 hours into a beer festival. I digress. Anyway, pours amber with a soapy head that recedes quickly into a bubbly film. Aroma (again, likely due to the age) - feels syrupy...dark and citrus fruits...generally malty, minimal bitterness. Flavor is sweet as well (and this does jive with other comments)...catch some herbaceous notes...malts, candy sugar...ok. Palate feels thin...with ample carbonation to suggest its not due to the age. Meh...ok...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear gold colour with a beautiful thick white head which leaves nice lacing inside the glass. Aroma is yeast, bread, grass, notes of honey and floral. Taste is bread with hints of yeast, floral and refreshing, nicely balanced. Light body with medium carbonation. Extremely nice and smooth beer and, in my opinion, very harshly underrated here.

This seems much lighter and less flavoursome than I remember. Light, sweet, soft, not hoppy. Very floral
