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!

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.

auerbrau (3157) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Iím not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

jake65 (2596) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 14, 2012
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.

12oz bottle pours with a deep gold body that has a slight haze and supports a thin light tan head. The aroma offers up fruity tartness, table sugar and some berry to cranberry like fruitiness. The taste starts tart and fruity with an edge of mild yeasty tartness. To midway it gets soft and sugary and a bit aspartame like too. It ends with a decent berry fruitiness.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Cloudy pale yellow with perhaps a touch of pink -look kind of like a fuzzy peach. Quickly diminishing head. Very fruity aroma - apple, apricot. huckleberry? Thankoodness the flavor isnít quite as sticky sweet as the aroma. Berry sweetness with some wheat malt sweetness in the background. Slight acidic finish helps clear some of the sweetness away. Not bad for a fruit beer.

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.
