On tap @ CRAFT. Sort of an amber pour with white foam. Really not too much fruit to this. Mostly just caramel malt and a bit of jam. Maybe a hint of tartness. Really bland flavor. Watery and sweet. Some caramel and toasted malt/bread. Slight biscuit, grass, and lemon. Maybe some sour fruits.

Reimer96 (1311) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a clear blush/pinkish color with a small white ring. Aroma of light fruity esthers and some sweet pale malts. Taste is light fruit, berries and a light sweet pale malt bill with not much on the finish. A touch light but what makes it enjoyable is that it’s not overly fruity and is refreshing.

robinvboyer (3216) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Light purple/pinkish pour, with a small off white head. A distinct malted wheat aroma, with touches of diacetyl, and some random berry juice, and light stone fruit. Low carb, muddy mouth feel. Low bitterness in the finish, muddled flavours, sweet berry juice, buttery malts. Meh.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Almost didn’t try this one bc I’m a raging snob but was much better than expected! Color of blush wine 3 Drier all round no overt fruit no soda, just the slightest whisper of fruit acidity blends well with the malts slight bitterness in the finish. Light body and thoroughly refreshing, no complaint really.

Smell is malty, huckleberries. Taste is much the same as the smell. Slightly tart finish. Average carbonation, slightly creamy on palate. Pretty good.

BeerGolem (697) - 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 (463) - 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.

AgentAle (747) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
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 (335) - 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.
