3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 6/5/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a fairly dense 1-2 finger white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Good spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big tart huckleberries, berry skin, bread, straw, earth, and light herbal spiciness. Very nice aromas with big fruitiness that smells very pleasant, and quite balanced. Taste of biscuit, huckleberry, toast, herbal, earth, grassiness, and light spiciness. Slight fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of huckleberry, grass, herbal, biscuit, and earthy spices on the finish for a short bit. Quite dry on the finish as expected. Taste has good flavor balance; but is a bit weak and there is not as much berry flavors as the aromas suggested. Very authentic tasting fruit flavor; no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good cream ale. Good amount of flavor and balance; very refreshing and smooth to drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle 7/29/12.
golden yellow with a slight haze and white head.
big aroma of berries...huckle, rasp and blue with lesser notes of wheat, must and vanilla.
artificially flavored tartness, raspberry candy and clay. it is crisp, clean and vibrantly carbonated but lacking in depth and character. goes well with spicy fatty food.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; with a straw/dark gold with a decent sized white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit, candy/sugar, with a bit of funk/earth. Flavor was drier than expected. Had a slightly earthy tone too it with a very slight hint of sourness. The fruit was somewhat bitter. A note of cocoa strangely in there. Not bad for a summer easy drinking beer, but far from exceptional.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serving: 12 oz. Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a brilliant light gold with a rather active white head. The nose has an off vegetal note up front. There is an odd earthy and berry thing going on too. The flavor has light tart berry notes and a touch if grain. That’s it. Very smooth on the palate with a dry finish. Mildly interesting but not my pint of beer.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a very light and clear yellow. I get hints of huckleberry and feet in the aroma here. I think it tastes relatively bland and off-puttingly sour.

Bottle from Champanes,
this ale had a clear yellow gold pour (there were some particles floating around) and made a one finger white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the glass had less than medium effervescence (a few streams in the center of the glass), and it left some spots and fingers on the sides of the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle but there were some specs/particles on the bottom of the bottle,
this drink had aromas of sweet fruit (huckleberry, I thought it resembled white grape and apple), faint malt, and fruit sweetness,
the flavors were huckleberry fruit and light malt, and a little fruit sweetness, there was little to no bitterness after the finish,
the mouth feel was light on the palate and had some creaminess,
this beer had a decent nose and flavor.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean straw hue with a lasting head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of berries, honey, biscuit, slight corn and soap. The taste is rather straight forward with mild twangy fruit, mild pale malts, and a slight butterscotch finish. The mouth feel is smooth and mild. Yes, this is a mild beer for the ladies who do not like beer. A one-and-done purchase.
