3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 Iíve 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. Couldnít 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. Itís 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: Itís 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.

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. Thatís it. Very smooth on the palate with a dry finish. Mildly interesting but not my pint of beer.
