A Yankee pint of the current seasonal Fruit Hog offering.

This beer pours a fairly clear, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of soapy eggshell white head, which leaves a low wash of berm-like lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of soft, sharp wheat grain, sweet, fruity huckleberry, and a bit of earthy yeast. The taste is a nice full frontal of sweet breakfast cereal malt, and sugary, somewhat syrupy huckleberry goodness. Sure can't fault the name of this brew.

The bubbles are no wallflowers, providing a decent crisp structure and offset to the fruity medium weight body, and backing off just enough to let a nice, slightly stilted smoothness pervade. It finishes very much like a watery fruit pie, of the huckleberry sort, natch, and that's a good thing.

I like huckleberries. I like good beer. So it stands to reason that my affinity for this seasonal (though hardly local, as this fruit grows a fair distance south of here) is well predicated. Sweet, yes, but in a way that closely echoes the main players.

Serving type: on-tap
