Well this one was not half bad for a fuity beer. It would be great on a super hot summer day, but in the middle of fall was a little out of place. The beer is crisp and has a nice palate. If you are not a big fan of beer flavor and want to enjoy a cold one, go for this one.

Golden with a filmy white head. Chock full of huckleberries in the nose. I do so love huckleberries. The flavor is not so intense in the usage of huckleberries. Some maltiness there as well. Berry finish.

Tap @ Brewpub in Lewiston, ID<BR>Pale gold, light head and lacing. Nose of huckleberry, light malt, simplistic. The flavor is more malty and husky with light chemicals and more fruit. Decent but they could have used a better base beer.

Huckleberry is present in mild amounts and certainly doesn’t dominate this beer. Normal amount of hoppiness for a German Hefeweizen meshed into a fruit beer. The best fruit beer I have tasted to date. Very tasty and possibly underappreciated?

Portlandrunk and I went to this brewery together, and although neither of us said anything (due to the presence of the bartender) we were both waiting for the other to try this before submitting ourselves to the horribly sweet world fruit beers exist in. This was actually quite good. The "hint" of huckleberry was just that, and not only was the flavor pleasing, but there was this very apparent grassiness that added a lot to the beer. It may be the lightest beer at MJ’s but it certaintly isn’t the worst.

Interesting fruit beer. Great huckleberry flavor highlights the beer and is followed with a tinge of bitterness. A very leafy as well as fruity palate to the beer. They have captured the taste of the entire huckleberry plant in this one. First class for a fruit beer.
