3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a hazy gold with a nice tight head that remained throughout. Aroma showed malt with a hint of berry fruit. The taste began with a fruity berry opening, moved to malt, and finished off with mild hops. Mouthfeel was nice and smooth. Overall, a nice, smooth fruity wheat beer. Too bad I can not get any more in WI.

Sampled at the brewery. Slightly hazy with a frothy white head. Aroma of jam and sweet malt. Taste is sweet berry and bread. Better than a lot of fruit beers but still pretty overly fruity for my taste. Medium body, smooth carbonation

12 oz bottle. Berries and wheat aroma. Cloudy, pale yellow in appearance. Medium head which disspiates, leaving a thin collar of foam. Berries and wheat flavor. Good...makes me wonder, whatever happened to Black Star?!?!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale, cloudy yellow, with stream of thick bubbles feeding a weak head. Huckleberry pierces through the wafting wheaty notes. Mellow berry flavor. With mild tart sour wheat to balance the sweetness. A respectable, lightly flavorful, fruit beer.

I love the fresh huckleberry aroma that pours off of this beer! Pours a cloudy strawish yellow. Nice fruit/beer ratio, nearly perfect and I have always thought that huckleberries are just about the best fruit that can be paired with a wheat beer.

Lively carbonation -- fizzy and palate cleansing. Malts were dry, grainy and bready. Huckleberry flavors and aromas swarmed from start to finish, yet they weren’t too sweet or overbearing. Mild bitterness helped to balance things out. Pretty refreshing beer.

This poured a yellow/orange color that was murky with a nice white head that dissipated rather quickly. The aroma and flavor are both dominated by the fruitiness of the huckleberry juice. Very smooth and thirst quenching. Nothing spectacular, nor offensive.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy pale straw yellow. Faint berry essence, a little vanilla, grainy pale malt, crisp finish. A nicely balanced fruit beer that doesn’t kill itself with artificial traits.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewpub in Whitefish, Montana. Pours a light semi-hazed golden pale brew with a thin white head that quicjly dissipates to a fine film and good lacing. Aroma of sweet huckleberries, light flour bread malt and soft flowery hops. The berry scent is the strongest of all others. Taste is lightly carbonated, light bodied, with a good balance of malt and berry flavors. Finish is light, smooth with a lingering berry aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft 6 oz’er at the taproom. Light golden with zero head. Wow, this presents a real big berry aroma. The flavors go more to the blackberry candy realm, so much so that this reminds me of Crunchberries. Decent for the fruit lovers. (#2865, 5/12/2007)
