Pours a hazy golden brownish color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish. I’m not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

Had this beer on 6/22/2000. Aroma is a fruity scent. Color is a hazy golden brown, with good carbonation and too much head. Taste malty and lightly fruity. Starting with a light body and going down easy. Finish is a light sour malt flavor with a somewhat bitter fruit end.

I'm not a big fruit beer fan, but I will attempt to be unbiased. As an overall beer, I thought this was a little thin and lacking. Fruit replaces complexity in this beer to produce a refreshing beer that will make a macro swill drinker feel that he has become a connoisseur of American Micros. Put in more malt and hops and save the huckleberries for pancakes in the morning.

clear golden color, quickly fading white head, didn't notice any huckleberry flavor or aroma. On the palate, it's a bit sour.

Sweet fruity nose, nice gold with a white head, lite lacing. Flavors of citrus, and a good balance between the malt. As far as the huckelberries, didn't really find them. There is a sweet finish to it, maybe that is them screaming to get out.

So I’m settling into the Cheyenne, WY library to rate the beers I’ve had on this western trip, and I rate this one first in honor of brother krisbierjaeger, who designed the label and gave me many good tips for beer hunting out here. First the label, which is a couple of Grizzlies beneath the mountains - reminding me of the bear I saw in Yellowstone a few days ago. Tasteful, well done Kris! The beer is pleasant, sweetish, mellow - my wife and I tried real hard to find the huckleberries, but couldn’t really taste them, other than a whisp of fruit here and there, like a mirage in the desert. The beer, though is a good citrusy quencher and a fine start to a session of Grand Teton beer.
