The strange aroma is ... strange ... but thats alright ... it pours a hazy orangeish-brown with no head ...
it feels fine in the mouth ... light and refreshing ...
the flavor is the real story here ... very floral, sweet and refreshing ... i can imagine the taste would be hit-or-miss for most people, but its definitely unique and refreshing ...
a think a lot of the lower reviews here are from people were expecting it to taste like something they usually buy ... but c'mon, how can you pass up the chance to try brewed heather?

Pours burnt copper with almost no head at all. A lot of honey in the aroma. A bit of honey in the taste, some heather, a good bit of malt. It’s a mediocre beer but drinkable.

500 ml bottle pours very clear gold. Nose is subtle, sweet flowers and honey. Great flavours on taste. Interesting note that I am guessing is the bog myrtle. Not much off the hops.

traditional ales - also a part of various malt (barley, wheat). Aroma hops compared withother ales from Williams Brothers - rather weak. Very delicate beer. Long wondered what kind of grass is in the taste - Eucalyptus? tarragon? later I read online that this is Heather.

Anaranjada y turbia con espuma escasa. Aroma marcadamente floral. Buen cuerpo y sabor malteado, algo dulce y con un predominio final bastante destacado de flores y menta. Receta milenaria basada en flores de brezo. Diferente.
