3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
You donít expect a beer like to taste exceptional and it didnít but it is a pleasant tasting beer unlike many fruit beers out there that taste fake. The cream ale base is pretty good. Itís smooth and creamy with a nice medium yellow/orange color. There is a very slight bitter/sour that tastes like it is coming from the fruit not the hops. Has a mild sweetness throughout. Chalky dry finish. Needs more huckleberries. Glad I tried it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head that leaves light to no lacing. Smells of huckleberry and light malt and slight hops. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but huckleberry is a little muted. Mouthfeel is thin and slightly creamy with decent carbonation. Iím not very impressed by this they should have added more huckleberries. Itís also not very creamy for being called a cream ale. Probably wonít try this disappointing beer again.

This is ok but the flavor is off. Pour is the best thing about this brew...a nice crisp yellow with a small white head.

Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is berry with some light beer smell. Taste is much the same. Slightly sweet berry flavor over a light beer backbone. Easy to drink, but harder to remember.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly clear gold with a dense half cm of white head. Aroma is a tart blueberry candy aroma, and taste is fairly heavy on the berry, which blends with a slight vanilla note. It has a slightly medicinal edge, but itís not bad. $2/12oz

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Overly active on the pour, this maintains a big, fizzy head over a hazy yellow-orange brew. The aroma is more creamy than berry, but theyíre both there. This drinks with a definite, farmhousey funk. I donít discern any berry character at all, and instead this comes across as a saison-style beer, but a bit imperfect. Disappointing from a normally solid brewer. (#5081, 6/27/2013)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance was clear gold with diminishing rocky white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are slight sweet malts, then overpowering berry nose. Taste are hints of sweet pale malt, sour huckleberry and not much else. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with light body, lasting sour berry finish. Too much berries, dial it back.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour with a small but thick, bright white head that lasts a while. Aroma of yeast, and an unidentifiable (well, okay, itís huckleberry) slightly funky fruit. Taste is on the lighter side of a cream ale with the fruit providing a brightness without being cloyingly sweet. Slightly unpleasant floral finish/aftertaste. Really lively carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Doesnít quite come together, but not a bad "patio in the middle of summer" beer.

Golden pour with thin white head. Fresh berry aroma. Sweet, but not overbearing taste. Nice light berry finish and aftertaste. Light, spritzer like mouthfeel.
