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!

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.

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.

Thanks to skyview for sharing. Pale pink/yellow body. Nice fruit nose on this one. Grainy fruit body with decent berry flavor, which Skyview assures me is dead on for Huckleberry. It’s nice and definitely different.

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.

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - APR 17, 2011
Sampled at the 5th Montana Brewfest in Bozeman. Hazed gold. Aroma is bursting with huckleberries. Taste is also sweet with tons of berry. A little too sweet for me but very nice to try.

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. I’m not in a region that sees a lot of huckleberries, so I can’t comment too well on that particular flavor component, except that it serves it’s purpose very well, and imparts just enough flavor that it never wears out it’s welcome. I see this as Montana’s equivalent to a great favorite here in the Midwest, Leinenkugel’s Honey/Berry Weiss. Are they ales or lagers? No one knows or cares, except that chicks dig ’em, or girly-men,...or...girly-women. Sell this kind of beer or Smirnoff Ice, take your pick.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin white head that rapidly diminishes to a ring of foam. The aroma has some wheat, yeast and fruit. Medium to light body with fizzy carbonation. The taste is sweet-tart. The taste is like "hard lemonade" without fakey aroma and aftertaste of Mike’s. Lingering tart finish. An unusual beer that I probably wouldn’t seek out again.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2009
sampled from bottles: clear orange, no head and no lacing. Aroma is watermelon, flower bouquet and nectarines. Taste is as sweet as the aroma. peaches, nectar from the fruits being squeezed. This beer is like one big fruit basket. A little too sweet for my liking.

TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with lasting white, foamy head. Flavor is over-powering tartness. Seems almost like a sour beer.

2.9
kyzr (1548) - Montana, USA - OCT 20, 2008
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.
