Tap at the brewpub. Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Floral and perfumy. A little earthy. Okay. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Keg @ Town Hall. Deep gold pour with a small head. Nose of homeyed bread, herb. Heather. Mild smoke. Flavor is pretty nutty. Sweet glazed donut. Mild herb. Medium body, soft carb. KelvinKathel (5) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2013 does not count
Aroma- floral, mild toasted caramel, herbaceous. Appearance- amber, slightly translucent. Less bubbles for cask. Taste- medium malt, subtle floral/herb, mild sweetness. Spice is hard to catch at first, but the more you drink the more you catch. Palate- smooth, med body, finish lingers. This was my first Heather Ale, and still my favorite after many others. I prefer this on cask as the complexities aren’t overshadowed by carbonation. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Growler via trade tytoanderso - Pours a fairly clear brown color with a small off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is esters, and floral and herbal hops. Flavor is slightly tart esters, herbal hops, and lightly sweetened malt. Medium body. Slight lingering after aftertaste. This beer definitely has a unique flavor. Worth a try.

Malty yet smooth taste. A murky looking beer with a thin everlasting head that lasts for the duration of your experience.

Draft: dark brown, herbal and earthy with a malt aftertaste, this was an interesting beer, not something I’d order up but worth sampling just to see what something brewed with heather tastes like. Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2008
Enjoyed at the brewpub with Al McArthy. Dark, no head. Some sourness from the peatiness, like a good brown. Medium mouthfeel, tasty with some sweetness and hibiscus. Carbonation above average. Not too drinkable. Wierd but worth trying to expand what a beer has been.

dark color with rockyhead. Light cocolate malt mix with something herbal on the aroma. Sweet taste with plenty of light chocolate flavor. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours a clear but unexciting brown color, looking something like a watered down Coke. Almost no head, definately no lacing. The aroma is prominent and very floral.
More of that floral character comes through in the taste. There’s something in there that is almost a mint - not exactly peppermint, but close. Light body and light carbonation, mildly sweet in the aftertaste. Stine (1780) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Copper colored with a thin head of foam. Aromas of wildflowers and various shampoos. Tastes like a strong lavender tea sweetened with honey and lightened with cream, finishing with faint hint of malt. It begins to taste very synthetic after only a few swallows. A promising design with apparently flawed execution.
