12oz bottle into a Stella Globe
Bottle on: 7/30/13

A: Pours a slightly hazy pale straw yellow with 1.5 fingers width of dense appearing bright white head. Head dissipates down at a moderate rate, leaves only trace patches of lacing.

S: Lots of fresh berry aromas, sweet and tart. I honestly dont get much else, a subtle doughy yeast-like scent is really the only other aroma I get. It actually smells a lot like berry flavored sparkling water. Not many characters that I expect in a beer, but very pleasant.

T: Tart, some bitterness, berry sweetness, light malts. Taste is more reminiscent of a beer than the aroma, but the berry characters arent as prominent.

M/D: Light body with heavy carbonation. I could see how this could be refreshing on a hot day (although Im drinking it in the winter). Drinkability is average.

O: Overall, I actually liked this one quite a bit. Nothing spectacular, but probably about as much as you could ask for from a fruited cream ale. Worthy of a try, and probably something your non-craft-beer- loving friends would enjoy as well.

A- vibrant gold, wit a Thin White head that fades quickly. no apparent lacing.

S- very ripe berry aromas. Almost artificial.

T- just straight huckleberry. Wonderful and refreshing.

M- light bodied, watery, very short lived. Once again, very refreshing.

O- I love it. it brings back fond memories of picking huckleberries up north.
