COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Huckleberry Wheat is bear food in a bottle! Most other fruit beers have such a tart snap that you can't taste the beer. The Huckle-Weizen is BEER with just enough huckleberry to make you yearn for the wilderness!

Draft at brewpub. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a large white fizzy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium sweet berrry and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with sticky texture and lively carbonation. Moderate sweet berry flavor with a smooth moderate sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting sweet session beer.

12oz bottle. Murky orange-brown color. Sweet berry aroma, potentially artificial but quite pleasant nonetheless. Juicy, tangy citrus hits you right off the bat, and dominates the beer throughout. Tart and refreshing, I sort of like this beer. The huckleberry taste is not unlike tart raspberry, with more of a lemony kick. Light honey touch in the finish. I could drink this stuff all day.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2009
sampled from bottles: clear orange, no head and no lacing. Aroma is watermelon, flower bouquet and nectarines. Taste is as sweet as the aroma. peaches, nectar from the fruits being squeezed. This beer is like one big fruit basket. A little too sweet for my liking.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of huckleberries, malt and grain. Taste is sour and tart with huckleberry – a bit puckering. Could use some sweet malt to help balance it out. Somewhat astringent and not very good.

Bottle courtesy of kyzr. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells fruity with a wheat backbone. Tastes tarte and of berries with a nice jam like finish.

Thick gold pour with small white head. Sweet flower smell. Flavor is tart and sour with generic berry flavor with some wheat. Its hard, but you can finally filter out and get a little huckleberry towards the end.

When I smelled this beer I thought it was going to be very sweet. After the first sip I was shocked by how tart it was. I actually made a face. Got better as I drank it and by the end was very happy with it. Very unique and good beer

[Bottle, thanks Skyview] Pours slightly cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet with what I am told is huckleberry. Pretty good. Taste is also huckleberry with a grain taste also present towards the end that really detracts from it. Somewhat thin. Unique berry to use in the beer, but not a very good fruit beer overall.

Honey coloration, fruity, sweet and fruity, leaves a good after taste. I liked this one a lot

Thanks to skyview for sharing. Pale pink/yellow body. Nice fruit nose on this one. Grainy fruit body with decent berry flavor, which Skyview assures me is dead on for Huckleberry. It’s nice and definitely different.
