Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Huckle-Weizen
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Huckle-Weizen.
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!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a pale orange color with nice white head and slight lacing.
Aroma: Sweet huckleberry, floral hops and cereal malts.
Taste: Sweet and tangy huckleberries upfront followed by grainy malts, slight hop bitterness and slightly wheaty and sour finish.
Overall: A good summer beer, I’d certainly drink another Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company Huckle-Weizen if in the area under the right weather conditions. If you’re a fan of fruit beers this semi-sourish 5.3% offering is worth a shot. A bit fruity sweet, but I expected it and wouldn’t knock it for that reason.
