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!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2007
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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2006
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!

GenDV138 (6688) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle at the RateBeer DC Tasting shared by Travlr, thanks Gene! Aromas of wheat, hay, light tart notes. Tastes of citrus, floral, wheat. Medium body with a dry finish. High carbonation.

Braudog (6509) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle: Poured with one of the biggest heads Ive ever seen ... at first pour, 100% of the glass was tightly-packed foam. After about 4 minutes, it finally settled into a airy topcover of a bright hazy body. The aroma gave off a light sense of wildberry. Smooth on the palate, this was primarily sweet, almost candy-tart. This is almost like a raspberry lemonade with 5% alcohol. Pretty good if you want a fruity one.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle courtesy of kyzr. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells fruity with a wheat backbone. Tastes tarte and of berries with a nice jam like finish.

JPDIPSO (5990) - 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 isnt 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.

JK (5966) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Not bad. Cloudy orange and lightly carbonated. I dont know what a huckleberry tastes like but the flavor of this beer is very similar to Pyramid apricot. Mostly sweet, but some sour in the finish. There does not seem to be any artificial flavors so that is good.

nuplastikk (5955) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2009
12oz bottle. Murky orange-brown color. Sweet berry aroma, potentially artificial but quite pleasant nonetheless. Juicy, tangy citrus hits you right off the bat, and dominates the beer throughout. Tart and refreshing, I sort of like this beer. The huckleberry taste is not unlike tart raspberry, with more of a lemony kick. Light honey touch in the finish. I could drink this stuff all day.

Skyview (5834) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Re-rate - (11/16/07) picked up a single 12-oz bottle from the brewery in Billings, Montana. Pours a semi-clear golden blond brew with a creamy white head that dissolves slowly to a film top and white ring. Some spotty lacing but quite thick in the glass. Aroma of light white bread with a soothing huckleberry scent. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a mild tart huckleberry, wheat and a touch flowery hops. Finish is smooth, light with a distinct huckleberry aftertaste. I have had several huckleberry fruit beers in Montana over the past year. This is one of the best huckleberry flavored beverages.

First rating (10/14/07)- infected bottle.

sonnycheeba (5645) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper with thin, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is mixed berries, cereal and cookie malts, floral hops, and light herbs and toast. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and berry esters with supporting floral hops and toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
