This is a unique, crisp wheat beer. I tried it as a novelty, because of the huckleberries. I really enjoyed it.

Funny story about a bear and the last time I went out to pick huckleberries to make jam...yadda, yadda, yadda...and that's why we call my dog "Grizzly Biscuit". (bottle, 01/03) Anyway, I'm sick of huckleberries and I get a gift of this stuff. It's been in the fridge for a couple months now. Looks quite pale, but bright and somewhat (surprisingly) opaque. Not a huge blast of huckleberry on the nose, but it's there. Taste is generally crisp, light, and with a grassy sweetness. Finish is tart, presumably from the huckleberry extract. Not bad stuff, but I'm still sick of huckleberries. Bonus points for it being a much more drinkable example of a style I don't really like.

Bottle: Dusty gold pour with a thin creamy white head. Bubbly. Aroma is wheat, floral, and light huckleberry. Flavor is mild lager malt, huckleberry, and finished with wheat. Crisp. Really a pretty clean taste. More wheat than fruit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewery. Slightly hazy with a frothy white head. Aroma of jam and sweet malt. Taste is sweet berry and bread. Better than a lot of fruit beers but still pretty overly fruity for my taste. Medium body, smooth carbonation

This has all it's component elements perfectly interwoven - it's a lager and a wheat (wonderful sharpness, wheaty crisp lemony sourness) with great fruitiness (I also don't know much about huckleberries) - this is a great concoction and tied for my No. 1 fruit beer! Wonderfully hazy yellowish brown in the glass. Super drinkable. Thanks, Slikwily.

Thanks to slikwily for this one! Caramel, blueberries, and honey in the aroma, very nice aroma. Thin white head, that fades, but is decent. Nice deep gold body. A good brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy golden color,Small head that faded fast.Mild malt aroma with a big emphasis on the fruit,if this is what a huckleberry smells like i think i will enjoy it then it smells pretty decent and sweet with a mild sour tone to it as well.Sweet taste at first then tart that later faded back to sweet.Pretty decent with a slight wheat tone and just a mild hop taste at the very end.The after taste is sweet but not overly so with a decent fruit as well.This is definately a different brew very nice as far as the flavor goes and well done IMO,if you can get this brew you should do it it won't let you down.
