BeerGolem (661) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample on tap at Craft Beer Market (Vancouver). Pours a strange grapefruit color. Some head and lacing. Cloudy appearance. Aroma: roasted bread, fruits, malt. Subtle. Taste is fruity. Reminds me of abricot jam on a toast. Not much aftertaste. Some carbonation. Light beer. Strange and original. Not totally unpleasant.

650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small creamy white head. Light berry aroma. Light berry flavour with some malt and just a hint of wheat. Light body, watery texture and flat to soft carbonation.

MunBro (260) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 A really decent wheat ale with a great huckleberry profile. I think a lot of the lower reviews are coming from people having never tried huckleberry before. I go to Idaho on vacation every year and that?s pretty much the berry of the state - I have tried everything huckleverry under the sun and this evokes great memories for me. Re rating as I totally forgot I tried this previously and bought another bottle. Poured into a wheat ale glass, had a fizzy white head that faded quickly with minimal lacing. Odd color for a beer. Kind of pinkish purple tinge to a golden ale. Nice wheat ale flavors and huckleberry profile. Removed 1 appearance point and awarded 1 taste and 1 overall on the re rate.

Aroma is sweet malts and caramel. Maltiness carries in taste and has a very subtle bitterness. Some slight sourness here, perhaps unintended. Body is a clear light amber. Head retains fairly.

exeter (261) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
A wheat beer with some flavouring in it. I can’t tell that it’s huckleberries. Smooth easy drinking but not particularly special, I’d have it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Rating #905 - January 13, 2014. Pours a deep golden yellow with just a little bit of a pink tinge that I may be imagining, with a weak, bubbly white head. Aroma is strong raspberry/blueberry (nothing I can distinguish as distinctly Huckleberry) Taste is a light malty wheat ale taste with a hint of berry sweetness and a dose of berry tartness built in. Finish is tart, but not unpleasant. Not a big fruit beer fan, however this is crushyable.

Pours orange gold with small white head. Nose is sweet malt and berry fruit. Tastes is alright. Wheat malt with subtle berry taste and very mild bitterness on the end.

Bottle shared by Alan at his house. Pours clear orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of syrup, wheat malt, soapy malt, berry fruit and unfermented sugars. Lighter medium body.

Pleasant rose in color. Foamy head at first pour, very aromatic. Light easy drinking beer, sweet finish but not overly done on the huckleberry . Very poundable.

On tap at Craft Beer Market in Calgary. Bit too fruity for my liking. Was nice to try but wouldn't have it again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
