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!

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.

Bottle at BZN Airport. Tastes mildly sweet and smooth with a hint of huckleberry. Smells cool and crisp. Almost no carbonation or head. Tasty for a fruit beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 17, 2011
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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2004
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. Iím not in a region that sees a lot of huckleberries, so I canít comment too well on that particular flavor component, except that it serves itís purpose very well, and imparts just enough flavor that it never wears out itís welcome. I see this as Montanaís equivalent to a great favorite here in the Midwest, Leinenkugelís Honey/Berry Weiss. Are they ales or lagers? No one knows or cares, except that chicks dig íem, or girly-men,...or...girly-women. Sell this kind of beer or Smirnoff Ice, take your pick.

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.

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.

Bottle at the RateBeer DC Tasting shared by Travlr, thanks Gene! Aromas of wheat, hay, light tart notes. Tastes of citrus, floral, wheat. Medium body with a dry finish. High carbonation.

TheHOFF43 (1758) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with lasting white, foamy head. Flavor is over-powering tartness. Seems almost like a sour beer.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Somewhat clear stoplight yellow color, the body is unique as its solid but not hazy or clouded, nor is it chill hazed, but its not clear neither. Very thin white cap quickly whisps away to leave a thread thin collar, very little to no lacing to it. Aroma is nice, reminds me of some dopplebocks or belgians with a sweet toffee, mango, caramel, molasses tang with nice inlays of honey, berries, and dullish lemon candies. Flavors are inticing, but underdone and a bit lazy. Sweet and tangy with a malty strong hold of chewy honey and caramel sticks laced in powdered sugar and lemon drops. A smalll zip of hops and carbonation in the middle, finishes with malty residue, kinda bready with a light wheat aspect but seemingly more candyish with a certain tang of molasses. Feel is about medium, short though, sticky, nearing cloying, but favorably clean and relentless with a malty profile. Very fufilling little drinker. Although I think this ainít no hefe, this is either a fruit beer or wheat beer, or a mix of those two, but in doesnít come across as any hefe Iíve had. Itís kinda like Gumballheadís little brother or perhaps a cousin. Whatever...Its good no matter what you call it.

Bottle. Interesting. Wheat and fruit on the nose. Quite sour on the palate. Is this a fruit or a sour? Iím not sure what to think of this. Decent, but odd.
