From Fernie, BC’s Fernie Brewing I received their What The Huck Huckleberry Wheat Ale.
The pour is a dark honey red-brown, crystal clear with no visible carbonation. The head is snowy white with coarse bubbles.
The nose is very light, some berries or fruit and mild spice.
Where this beer shines is on the tongue. The carbonation I could not see is present and pleasant, mild but nice. Several flavours come at once on the first sip, an astringent clove, huckleberry, calcium mineral it’s and a little bit of bubblegum.
Native to the Rocky Mountain region, the Huckleberry is prized for its sweetness and deep colour. Blended with wheat to create a smooth and creamy beer with a touch of huckleberries.
