Native to the Rocky Mountain region, the Huckleberry is prized for its sweetness and deep colour. We’ve blended it with a touch of wheat to create a smooth and creamy beer with a touch of huckleberries. Great for the summer patio season, cosy inter-season dinners or your finest apres ski. We’ve added the berry juice after filtration, giving a subtle purple colour and a slight haze, with a tartly sweet finish.

650ml bottle, $5.10 + dep at the BCLS.

A: Big foamy head, a bit cloudy but fairly clear, sort of an amber colour with a slight pinkish hue. Colour is not the most appealing, but I guess this is what a wheat ale with huckleberry juice looks like.
S: Berries, piney hops.
T: Dry. I guess I taste the berries. It's pretty mild, but not flavourless.
F: Crispness from the carbonation. Medium-bodied, a bit thicker than I expected, but not syrupy.

Would I buy it again? Probably not, although it's not bad. I can think of other fruit beers I'd rather drink, but I don't regret giving it a try.

This pours with little, white, head - and the small head reduces quickly. The body is cloudy with a mix of colours, kind of purple but more of an orange-dark red colour. The aroma is fresh and lively. I get mostly grain and detect pear and a smoky quality. Wheat ales mix well with fruit flavours as this beer demonstrates. The taste is mostly berry and light citrus. The fruit tastes real (not artificially flavoured). It has a medium body, which is heavier than I expected. The carbonation is appropriate.

Overall, it reminds me of a herbal tea, but cool and carbonated. I'm not a big fan of fruit herbal teas though and this isn't the best fruit flavoured beer I've ever had.
