1 from a 6-pack purchased on 08/01/1997 from a liqour store in Couer d’alene, Idaho. Tasting scribble notes as follows: Light mouth feel, lots of sugar-coated berries, dark gold look, light finish.
My tasting notes were a bit shallow in my youth....

Bottle that Hennie had in his cellar. Aroma of day old bread. Poured yellow with medium white head that dissipated rapidly. Flavour was mostly blackberry, with a bit of wheat. Almost no finish. Glad they don’t make this any more.

Pale yellow pour, big fluffy white head and zero lacing. Aroma is mostly wheat but with a light waft of blackberry. Ditto the flavor, though slightly more berry was present. This was one I didn’t mind drinking back when I was a poor college student and it was very cheap and better than BMC products.

Poured a clear straw-golden hue with a small white head. Nose of stale malts, wheat, and berries. When Henry’s was legit, this was a super value.

The blackberry flavor is separated from the rest of the flavors. It seemed as if they were competing against each other. I liked the idea of a blackberry for a fruit beer, but this didn’t work for HW. Nice try though...

Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of wheat bread and berries. Flavor is sweet berry and a little yeasty. Flavor is to sweet for me, didn’t care for this at all.

Awesome try at making a truely Northwest beer. Blackberries which is a weed here are perfect. But they just did not have any flavor to this beer. They missed the berry flavor andftoo much malt. But I love the attempt

Smells like a good fruit beer, but the berry taste seems artificial. It always tempts me if I haven’t had one in a long time, but tasting it reminds me why I haven’t had it in a long time. The appearance is average.
