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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Golden color, white fizz. Smells like fermented diarrhea. The worst smelling beer I’ve ever had. An odd, perfumy fruit character. Some malt character. Never had a huckleberry before. Fruit essence resembles a cranberry and raspberry and a hint of strawberry. (3371)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Soft gold pour with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is berries and grains. Sort of smells like Quaker Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal. Taste is fruity with berry notes, sweet malt, lightly toasted grains and light flowery notes. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more toasted grains, sweet malt, ripe berries and dried flowers.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The appearance is golden with a nice foamy head and a super light haze. The aroma is dirty with fruit, dust, mop water, grass and yeast. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s not great but an interesting beer to try once.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Raspberry nose. Clear amber, headless. Soft body, easy carbonation. Little flavor save for artificial raspberry and a weak hint of malt. Refreshing and surprisingly nice mouthfeel. Unimpressive in the aspect that counts most: flavor.
