Bottle. Pours clear copper with thin, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is mixed berries, cereal and cookie malts, floral hops, and light herbs and toast. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and berry esters with supporting floral hops and toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the 5th Montana Brewfest in Bozeman. Hazed gold. Aroma is bursting with huckleberries. Taste is also sweet with tons of berry. A little too sweet for me but very nice to try.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, light-orange color, small and vanishing white head. Intriguing berry aroma: very fresh, awake and alive, full of fruitiness. Initial gritty and grainy texture, but an ultimately smooth mouthfeel. Good finish, the flavor tends to stick around for a bit. I’m not in a region that sees a lot of huckleberries, so I can’t comment too well on that particular flavor component, except that it serves it’s purpose very well, and imparts just enough flavor that it never wears out it’s welcome. I see this as Montana’s equivalent to a great favorite here in the Midwest, Leinenkugel’s Honey/Berry Weiss. Are they ales or lagers? No one knows or cares, except that chicks dig ’em, or girly-men,...or...girly-women. Sell this kind of beer or Smirnoff Ice, take your pick.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 Mike’s. Lingering tart finish. An unusual beer that I probably wouldn’t seek out again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
