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 at BZN Airport. Tastes mildly sweet and smooth with a hint of huckleberry. Smells cool and crisp. Almost no carbonation or head. Tasty for a fruit beer.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Big, foamy head; cloudy, dried-apricot hue. Crisp and spritzy up front; smoother and creamier toward the finish. Light malts with flavors of dough and crackers. Light notes of yeast -- wholesome and earthy. Nice level of huckleberry, just enough to show up in the background. Very, very mild bitterness. A refreshing beer with nice things going on, but not overly exciting.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of floral, I’m assuming huckleberries as it was berries but have never smelled a huckleberry before, and wheat. Tastes of tart berries (again I assume huckleberies), wheat, and lightly bready. This one grew on me as I drank the bottle.

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.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Appearance: Pours a pale golden body with a small, fizzy-looking white head. Smell: Boom. There you go. Huckleberries. Taste: This beer offers enough of the fruity, juicy huckleberry quality we all seek without getting excessive about it. Beyond that, there’s just a soft hint of wheat and lemon. Finishes crisp and tart. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Finally, a beer that allows me to get my huckleberry "fix".

When I smelled this beer I thought it was going to be very sweet. After the first sip I was shocked by how tart it was. I actually made a face. Got better as I drank it and by the end was very happy with it. Very unique and good beer

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.

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!

Pours a peachy-apricot color, slightly hazy, with almost no head. Nose is of huckleberry. Not overly creamy on the palate, the taste is of wheat beer with a splash of huckleberry. A good summertime thirst quecher. Pairs well with light finger sandwices or summer snacks.
