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. Pours a hazy yellow with lasting white, foamy head. Flavor is over-powering tartness. Seems almost like a sour beer.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Head is initially small, white, frothy, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with notes of lemon, raspberry, and strawberry. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Cloying syrupy sweetness hurts this one. But then again, the aroma isn't much either.

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.

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

islay (1058) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2006
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. The pour left a fairly thin head, leaving a pinkish-amber appearance in the glass. Carbonation seemed about right for a Hefeweizen. The berry flavor is highly aggressive, and leaves a sour-bitter aftertaste. It sits well, and once you get used to the sour-sweet note, it is drinkable. Not a fan of the finish: it was quite long and bitter. I love a good Hefeweizen: this is not recommended for true Weizen drinkers: taste resembles a wine cooler more than a Hefeweizen. If they were to market this as a wine cooler or something other than a quasi-Weizen, I’d be happier with it.
