3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving a decent lace.The aroma was wheaty and fruity but what kind of fruit is hard to say.The taste was whaety and sweet and some kind of fruit that could maybe be lemon,and hops that are mild.This is a unique brew,not at all what i was expecting but nicely flavored and different.Well worth trying again just to see if the flavor stay's much as this one and to try and discover what the odd flavors are.

Good tasting brew. Floral aromas with mild spicy notes. The tartness of the gooseberries went well with the bitterness of this one.

Pours a very pale champagne color with almost no head. The beer smells mostly of berries with a slightly acidic undertone. Lightly carbonated and smooth, this beer reminds me slightly of a wine. Taste is of berries, mostly gooseberry, with a mildly tart aftertaste. Overall, quite pleasant.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Aroma is fruity, wheaty, herbal, a little Lemon Pledge. Flavor is sweet, berries(gooseberries maybe?), a little banana. Somewhat acidic finish, green apple?, with little hop bitterness. Watery with little carbonation. Not bad flavor. A little more beerlike than other Heather Ales I have tried. Not bad. Complex flavors but some seem a little artificial.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a small whitish head. Aromas of wheat, some malt, and fruits. Slightly floral. The flavors are very similar to the nose, but there is some spice there. Medium bodied with a tangy palate that leaves the mouth feeling pretty clean. A nice refreshing ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gooseberries and twigs aroma. Somewhat herbal, blackcurrant. Herbal bitter flavor. Twigs. Earthe. Gooseberries and some sourness. Medecinal. Long red fruit and bitter aftertaste. Far from ordinary beer, the earthy fruitiness is a bit of an acquired taste. Not bad at all!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Almost no head to speak of with very little to no carbonation. Aroma is a light sour fruit. Color is a cloudy golden/orange. Flavor is thin but not bad. Little wheat and fruit but still tastes flat. Finish is a little sour but clean in the mouth.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden/orange colour with no head. Aroma of bananas, cloves and bubble gum. Medium-bodied; Bland wheatie taste with hints of the bananas and cloves showing through-but not much. Aftertaste very clean-almost nothing at all. Overall, a dissapointing choice! I had this on Cask at R.F.D. in Washington on 28-November-2003.
