2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden colored with a nice sized white head that left some decent lacing. I assume that the berries I smelled were the huckleberries as I have never had one before. There was also some honey and yeasty wheat in the aroma too. A huckleberry taste along with yeassty notes. Also a watery taste that was a bit unpleasant. Very thin in the mouth. Nothing to special here, but it was neat to have a huckleberry beer.

I love Huckleberries. So for me to give anything a low score with Huckleberries this beer must have missed the boat. The aroma was great but then this beer missed the huckleberry boat. There are much better huckleberry beers out there. Need to go to Idaho for these.

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.

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?!?!!

I love huckleberries. I love beer. I normally think any kind of fruit and beer should be kept seperate. This is perhaps the best fruit beer I’ve ever had. It’s still not that great but it’s something that I could have on occasion. The huckleberries are very light and do not overpower as most fruit beers do. I would even drink it again.

This nameless mystery bottle (there is NO label) came to me at my local liqour store’s "bottle bin" section. I assume this is the Huckleberry from the obvious berry and hefe aroma. Nice looking cloudy pour and fruity flavors. A bit to sweet and not as tart as I would have liked to see. Not bad for a buck ten a bottle.

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)

Sampled at GABF. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Tastes the same with some hops bitterness. Found sweet tastes also. Nice fruit beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured up on tap at MacKenzie River Pizza with clear pale gold body that is nearly watery clear and supporting a thin white head. The aroma has some berry fruitiness mixing with maybe a faint grainy maltiness or a Pilsener like malt note. The taste is the same but it has a bit of a sugary saccharin sensation behind the bubbly sweet sugary berry notes. Off in the background from time to time a faint maltiness can be detected. It is a bit tough to finish a pint of this.
