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!

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. 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.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Big, foamy head; cloudy, dried-apricot hue. Crisp and spritzy up front; smoother and creamier toward the finish. Light malts with flavors of dough and crackers. Light notes of yeast -- wholesome and earthy. Nice level of huckleberry, just enough to show up in the background. Very, very mild bitterness. A refreshing beer with nice things going on, but not overly exciting.

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2007 12oz bottle-Aroma of huckleberry on a slightly hazy light amber body. Taste of sour and more sour. Could have potential. Not the worst but not the best.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - 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. I’m not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

auerbrau (3179) - 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.

On tap at Bones. Hazy golden pour with a white fizzy head. Nose is sweet berries. Taste is berries and wheat.

This is a surprisingly good fruity hefe. Comparable to some of the better raspberry weizens but with a slightly more tart sweetness. Picked this up in Sheridan, WY in 2013.

Draft: Hazy pale yellow pour with a small white head. Mild huckleberry aroma, more in the taste. A bit of florals and light wheat. Finished a little soapy.

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.
