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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lighter shade of pale with zero head poured from a firkin. Subtle hints of fruit in the aroma. Had more flavor than I thought just judging from the appearance, but still had trouble distinguishing the wild gooseberries. Mild finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Seems more potpourri than beer. And I don't mean that in a bad way. Do I? Guess I'm beining influenced somehow to think I should be drinking in a rough ceramic mug while donning a friars outfit and attending a rennaisance fest. Refreshing. Would definitley keep me going if the pipes were playing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of barnyard and old vegetable. Light orange in color, little head. Flavor was very mild and earthy, notes of honey, lots of vegetable. Smooth and easy to throw down, but very average overall.
