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!

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.

[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.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy golden-brown with a decent white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, floral, fruit, cherries, raspberries, blueberries and huckleberries. Is a little tart and a bit sour in the finish. Has a similar aroma that is very nice and rather prominent. The body is a little slick and a bit creamy. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. Well worth picking up again.

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.

Nose is sweet and gives a nice earthy huckleberry aroma. the flavor is nice and sweet, and shows off the huckleberries. Call me a homer, but I miss my MT huckleberries.

Pours a peachy-apricot color, slightly hazy, with almost no head. Nose is of huckleberry. Not overly creamy on the palate, the taste is of wheat beer with a splash of huckleberry. A good summertime thirst quecher. Pairs well with light finger sandwices or summer snacks.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Pale yellow with a head that vanished before I finished pouring the beer. Faint hint of wheat and yeast in the nose, but funky berry note that reminded me of metallic aftertaste. Standard light bodied fruit hefeweizen flavor--decent berry flavor, no real outstanding notes. Finish somewhat dry and astringent.

It poured out a nice cloudy golden color but had very little head. The flavor got worse and worse with each drink. Strawberry and citrus taste with mild carbonation. Tasted like a flat strawberry soda. wierd aftertaste.
