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!

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of floral, Iím assuming huckleberries as it was berries but have never smelled a huckleberry before, and wheat. Tastes of tart berries (again I assume huckleberies), wheat, and lightly bready. This one grew on me as I drank the bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet, fruity berries and some mild pale malt. Starts with a mild sugary sweetness turning into a fruity tartness toward a thinner, sweet-tart finish. Fairly interesting, balanced, and drinkable.

ChainGangGuy (4364) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Appearance: Pours a pale golden body with a small, fizzy-looking white head. Smell: Boom. There you go. Huckleberries. Taste: This beer offers enough of the fruity, juicy huckleberry quality we all seek without getting excessive about it. Beyond that, thereís just a soft hint of wheat and lemon. Finishes crisp and tart. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Finally, a beer that allows me to get my huckleberry "fix".

[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.

When I smelled this beer I thought it was going to be very sweet. After the first sip I was shocked by how tart it was. I actually made a face. Got better as I drank it and by the end was very happy with it. Very unique and good beer

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.

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!

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.

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.
