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!

islay (890) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle. This beer smells of berries and wine. Its aroma is like that of a bad scented candle. It is very cloudy in appearance, with a blood orange color and small amount of head. The flavor is sour and pungent, more reminiscent of a wine cooler than a standard beer. The body is surprisingly full, and it is pleasantly crisp going down the throat. This brew seems to be reasonably well made, but it is not suited to my tastes. The flavor is a bit of a shock at first, but I did get used to it eventually.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin white head that rapidly diminishes to a ring of foam. The aroma has some wheat, yeast and fruit. Medium to light body with fizzy carbonation. The taste is sweet-tart. The taste is like "hard lemonade" without fakey aroma and aftertaste of Mikeís. Lingering tart finish. An unusual beer that I probably wouldnít seek out again.

Ratman197 (9042) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Bottle poured a hazy pink tinted gold with a small diminishing off white head. Aromas of bread, wheat and berries. Palate was light bodied and slightly tart. Flavors of tart berries, wheat and bread with a crisp tart finish. A very refreshing summer beer!

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle: Poured with one of the biggest heads Iíve ever seen ... at first pour, 100% of the glass was tightly-packed foam. After about 4 minutes, it finally settled into a airy topcover of a bright hazy body. The aroma gave off a light sense of wildberry. Smooth on the palate, this was primarily sweet, almost candy-tart. This is almost like a raspberry lemonade with 5% alcohol. Pretty good if you want a fruity one.

5000 (6029) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle: Dirty straw or a dull golden, fairly hazy, moderate to large white head, foamy, fairly decent lacing.   Fairly crisp huckleberry nose.   Whoa... this one is rather tart and dry, with only minor huckleberry sweetness.   Actually, its kinda of nice for a change.   Fairly dry, a bit airy, and acidic from start to finish.   Slight pepper, wheat, and cereal at the end.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Different.   Thanks Tom for the bottle!

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2006
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. Iím not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Gold Coloring with Frothy White Head. Lemony and Malty Aroma. Flowery, Citrus Notes...Light Hops.. Smooth and Very Drinkable. Simplistic Enough to be a Lawn Mower Brew.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Gushing, despite restrained pour. Dark amber tinted orange golden glow, topped with mountains of crystal white head. Not much aroma, slight fruit and malt. Flavor is like a slightly fruity typical lager, with a tinge of wheat and yeast in the background. A light estery berry fruit in the nose and on the back end. Very drinkable.

badgerben (4363) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Golden color with a thin white head. Very flowery aroma with a strong herbal quality. Slight fruits which I presume to be huckleberries, but Iíve never had one so Iím not really sure. The taste has a bit of wheat on it, but is really about the same as the aroma. Not outstanding, but pretty tasty.

I typically canít stand berry flavored beers. I didnít like Leinieís berry or Sam Adamís Cherry Wheat. So needless to say I wasnít expecting much out of this beer. When I opened it and poured it, I got a HUGE white foamy head. It has a definitive berry smell to it but the taste of the berry was very subtle. I actually kind of, in a wierd way enjoyed this beer. It seems that all Yellowstone Valley beers are good.
