COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Native to the Rocky Mountain region, the Huckleberry is prized for its sweetness and deep colour. We’ve blended it with a touch of what to create a smooth and creamy beer with a touch of huckleberries. Year round favourite! Infused with natural huckleberries. Hops - Perle and Willamette.

Mediocrity at its boring best. Pours an orangey yellow, mild rotten egg / well water taste. Don't really like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was an OK beer for the style I don’t like. It was a little too sweet for me. Great name.

Berry nose. Pink hue. From a can. Not overly impressive just ok for a fruit beer.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Pours a cloudy golden yellow color. Some berries and musty notes in the aroma. Taste is tart red berries. Not as sweet as most fruit beers.

On tap at Garrick’s Head, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out a sort of stale, tart berry-like character and some musty notes. Flavour is very light and clean, with extremely restrained berry notes and biscuity notes. Lacking character but nothing off about it. Boring.

Draft - Grains and light Berry. Clear gold with a nice white head. Light grain, honey and a touch of non descript Berry.

On tap. Slightly hazy straw colored pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, berries and grains. Taste follows the aroma with grains and faint berry fruit dominating. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, crisp mouthfeel.

On the patio at O’Hare’s Richmond. Pleasant, hint of fruit aroma. Beautiful in the glass, Still tastes like beer with a hint of fruit, not vice versa. Creamy on the palate and fresh. Def a great patio beer.

Ruby peach body, with lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Sweet grainy aroma, lactose, with a faint fruitiness. Taste is grainy, a slight sweet fruitiness, but also a dry tart element as well, but all of this pretty subtle. Certainly doesn’t taste over sweet or artificial like a lot of fruit beers. Not bad.

ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Not sure what a huckleberry is supposed to taste like, but this seems like a pretty middle-of-the-road berry flavoured wheat beer. Cloudy pinkish orange pour with a bubbly off-white head. Bread and berry notes, strawberry and raspberry, slightly metallic, medium sweetness and a bit of a tart note.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Pink-red, strongly opalescent color, medium white head and a bit of lacing. Aromas are neutral, hard to distinguish anything really. Maybe a bit fruity. Tastes soury, like berries and also a bit fruity, but nothing besides that. Boring to be honest. Slightly soury aftertaste. Medium carbonation, low body, a bit watery. Overall nothing happens here, watery body, it is refreshing, but it’s just boring... Tastes like a communist-era Polish compote from variety of berries & rhubarb, but much more watery ;)

PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa różowo-czerwona, mocno opalizująca, piana biała, średnia, nieco lejsingu. Aromaty dość neutralne, ciężko coś tu odnaleźć. Może nieco owocowe. W smaku kwaśnawe niczym porzeczki i też nieco owocowe, ale nic poza tym. Pisząc wprost dość nudne. W posmaku nieco kwaśnawe. Średnie nasycenie, niskie odczucie w ustach, dość wodniste. Podsumowując nic się tu nie dzieje, mocno wodniste, co prawda jest orzeźwiające, ale nudne jak cholera... Smakuje jak PRL’owski kompot z różnych owoców, ale znacznie bardziej wodnisty ;)
