3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint aroma of a sour gueuze with a little bit of berry sweetness. Color is hazy deep gold, but still light like apple juice. Nearly headless. Taste is sweet sharp berries, and dry like a white wine. Easy drinking, but would like a little more sweetness. Palate is a little buttery.

Pours a clear yellow color with a slight berry fruit flavor. Taste is mildly tart, with a watery finish. What minimal flavor there is dissipates quickly leaving a bubbly tickle on the tongue. This beer is as advertised, good for a summer BBQ but not complex.

Bottle from TWM McLean - pours clear straw, aroma reminds me of vegetable garden (including the soil), with some dark berry notes. Taste is watery tartness. Palate is smooth, finishes a little dry. Not a lot to this one, as noted in their product description, the berry is light, but clearly present. Overall, I like my fruit a bit bolder, but in a pinch, I would drink this one again.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear straw gold with a short white head. It has a great huckleberry aroma that's not overpowering, with hints of pale malt and yeast. The flavor is more dominated by the malt and yeast, with a crisp finish.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Absolutely one of the worst beers I’ve ever smelled. The south end of a north bound steer. Yeah that bad. Flavor is actually not horrible if you hold your nose, taste like straight huckleberry, a little tart, fizzy finish. Couldn’t finish my 4 oz portion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, light yellow body with tons of carbonation spewing forth a tall, airy head fed by continued streams of effervescence.
Smell: Tart, tangy fruitiness overtop mild base malts (with some sweetish hints about it) and even milder hops.
Taste: Mild maltiness (just barely bready) given a liberal dusting of powdered sugar for a fair degree of sweetness. It’s fruity and lightly tart, as one might imagine, with a flavor reminiscent of blueberries but a bit different and more distinctive. Mild hop character and bitterness. Berryish, sweet finish with a lingering hint of blue-colored cotton candy.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-high, fizzy carbonation for a lively mouthfeel.
Overall: It’s alright for a fruit beer.

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.
