From notes. Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with little white head. Aroma is wheat and fruit. Taste is actually much better than I expected with the huckleberries really coming through nicely. Excellent beer for the summer.

A very strong huckleberry aroma, instantly upon opening the bottle. This was a bit on the warm side but still pretty good. The huckleberry is noticeable and the honey isn’t so much to make the beer sweet. Pretty solid summer beer.

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Sampled at the Mountain Brewers Festival. Big berry character, honey sweetness, grainy, floral, dry finish. The quality is what I would expect from Bitter Root. Meh.

650ml bomber bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that settles down to reveal very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity berries (huckleberries) with some sweet malts and light hops. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a light dry hoppy finish. Light bodied with modest carbonation. A pretty good fruit beer and recommended to try.

Wheat malt and huckelberries. Weird. Not much else in this one but I like it. Pours golden, hazy, thin white head. Flavors of wheat malt and berries. A little honey, a light crispness in the finish. Fairly one dimensional but tasty and drinkable.

Bottle bought in CDL but enjoyed in Kalispell. Pretty tasty. You definitely get the wheat and hint of the huckleberries (reminds me of blueberries). Nice but slightly muted overall. I imagine the huckleberry flavors are pretty volatile.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is of grain and huckleberry. Flavor is the same, mildly sweet. A bit cloying in the finish. Not what I was expecting, for all the world like a pale lager with a bit of huckleberry juice in it.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 12, 2012
22oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is mostly fruity berry with some cracker malt and sweet floral honey. Flavor is sweet and lightly acidic berries with a smooth cracker malt taste. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Nice fruity beer, a tad sweet but the berries really shine in this one.

Bomber from Hamilton MT. Flavor is fruity, but not to the point of being too much. Some graininess and malts balance it out nicely. Fairly refreshing beer for the summer.
