From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped Jan 2015. Sampled on June 26, 2014 so there is time left.

The pour is a very cloudy straw yellow color with a haze and a small white fizzy head.

The aroma is subtle by pleasing enough for the style. Biscuit malts, clean hops, and a citrus type character.

Light and refreshing body.

The taste has a kind of herbal quality to it along with the toasted biscuit malts and clean, crisp hops. Gooseberry and wheat they promise. Not sure how much of either I picked up but maybe I just could not distinguish. It did have a uniqueness to it.

3.75/5  rDev +6.5%

A: Highly filtered golden, highly carbonated, 2 finger creamy off white head, sustained head.

S: Light watery malt, almost aa lager type smell combined with watery sour smell, like a watered down juice drink for a child.

T: Very light and watery, medicinal, some sour notes of berry, some herbal notes like sage or some green leafy herb, malt kicks in near the end as well as a bitterness. Feels like someone went into some Scottish herb garden in a barren highland village, cropped up some herbs and added them to the brew along with some berries.

M: Very light and highly carbonated.

O: Loving the concept as described above. Great labeling on the bottle- Came with LCBO’s Ancient Scottish Ales Gift Wrap pack with 3 others. Drank in January 2013.

3.56/5  rDev +1.1%

Roughly blonde, in color. Some haze. A little bit of carbonation head sits on top, but not much. Gruits come in all shapes and sizes, I suppose. This one... looks like a beer.

I smell wheat and gooseberry fruitiness. Smells like Swedish jam and crackers. Has a British allure to it. Hints of stone fruits and aged hops. Not a whole lot going on.

Firm hop bitterness upfront with wheaty malts and English pale maltiness. Fruity, somewhat. Cloudberry, pear, and tart apricot. Somewhat toasty. Bitterness almost turns into creaminess, late in the drink. Body echoes nearly the same with some mushiness that the carbonation tries to prickle up. A decent beer to pair with food.
