nice flowery spicey aroma with a creamy white head and a golden color. very interesting since there are no hops in the beer. kinda malty and herbal. i had better and worse. CEZ (420) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 26, 2004
Deep golden body, fine and lasting head, two fingers tall. A strong herbal aroma, with alcohol and licorice. Tastes like a slightly malty herbal infusion; but also reminded me of medicine. The finish is slightly bitter, dry, with a wooden note. Body is medium to full and the flavours are strong, but I can’t really say how much I like it.

Odd, to say the least. Murky, light orange appearance with a decent long lasting head. Very fragrant floral aroma with some ginger notes as well. Pleasant mouthfeel, leaves a nice aftertaste. Flavor has the same ginger elements, I’m sure it is heather, just never had heather before! Also detect a bit of spearmint in the back end as well. Not your everyday quaffing ale, but a nice diversion. madsberg (11799) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2004
Bottled @ DBF2004: Golden coloured. Beige head. Sweet and malty in the aroma. Some honey notes in the flavour. Malts and herps vaguely present. Dies quickly on the palate. Dull darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Not my cup of tea; bitter and flat tasting. Appeared alright, but no head at all. It was dry and yeasty, but had something that lingered and didn’t sit well in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 strange metallic/apple aroma. clear, brass color. a very fine looking head. thin, elegant. sweet and malty with a nice vinous bitterness and dry puckering finish. it's ok. tastes a lot like a bitter. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Bottle. Pours a deep, bright gold with no head. The aroma hit syou with apple pie and flowers. Very sweet to smell. The taste is a slight peach. The flavor changes later in the beer to an orange sherbert like finish. Has a medium mouthfeel. Very satisfying. bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Yeasty aroma with a touch of flowery hops. No head, and very little lacing. Murky orange/yellow in color. Malt body with hints of light hops and spices. Finishes dry with a yeast flavor. Hopistotle420 (1177) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 26, 2004
Slightly hazed, orange hue. Small sticky off white head. Mealy, malt nose. I really enjoy this heather brew. Slight smokiness, great herbal flavor, winey, and a very pleasant sweetness that rounds this out. I spose some could see it as 1 dimensional, but I feel it rocks.
