Brewed with imported Scottish floor-malted barley, fresh, hand-harvested heather flowers were added to the kettle during the boil along with sweet gale, yarrow, and lavender. The aroma and flavor are a surprising jog of ancient memory, with notes of sweet gale, heather, an obscure wildflower spiciness, and a grace note of lavender, complemented by the interplay of mild but assertive, toasty-sweet malt.

GABF 2006. The beer pours to a yellowish gold body with a white head. Nice crisp floral aroma with lavendar, heather, nice light malt. The flavor is rich with lots of floral components. Sweet honey, lavendar, heather. Delicate. Very unique and definitely worth trying.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Thick sweet toasted malt and very floral, herbal and citrusy character in the aroma. Clear golden body with plenty of very visible, fine bubbled carbonation is topped with a generous, dense, white head that recedes slowly with some sudsy lacing. Floral and spicy character complements the pleasantly toasty malt base with plenty of sweet fruity esters. Medium light body with lively carbonation that stimulates the tongue. Sampled at GABF 2005.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2005
Hazy strawy amber colored, smallish off-white head. Convincing heather nose offers a plate of complementing flavours, floral, herbal and citrusy yet moreso from spices than from hops. In mouth, the fruitiness is lively, evoking litchi and apricots while the peppery spice blend rounds it out nicely. Juicy, balanced and refreshing gruit, that might gain from having a slightly fuller bodied.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2005
poured a dim golden brown. small fizz to the head...nose of sweet flower spice. mostly a malt feel to this beer, no hops were used in this brew. so the sweetness is up and flippn. toasty nuts of malt and lavender play with your senses. quite light and easy to drink. good

ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2004
2004 draught @ the brewery. Appearance of a mildly golden ale, touch of amber with a decent sized white head. Smells like perfumy and of flowers (honeysuckles come to mind). Flavor is quite light, but noticeably floral from the heather. This gives it a lightly sugary flavor, yet the heathery/lavender flavor is certainly not lost. Good amount of that, and it creates a good smoothness. Finish is clean and moderately quick. Mildly effervescent, lightly oily feel from the flower petals most likely.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest 2004: Cloudy orange color, with a small white head. Strong sweet earthy flowers in the aroma. Medium bodied, quick finish. The best un-hopped beer that I've ever had.
