COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of the huckleberries that grow wild throughout the Flathead Valley, we unveiled this summer brew in the spring of 1996. A combination of 75% Western pale malted barley, 25% malted wheat, Cascade hops and wild huckleberry juice from the Flathead Valley, were used to create this highly drinkable, thirst-quenching lager. A delightfully unique fruit beer, this pale summer brew combines the crisp, dry refreshment of a light lager with a subtle, tart hint of huckleberries that is neither sweet nor overpowering.

The wheat aroma actually comes out stronger than the huckleberry. Flavor is similar - more wheat than fruit. It’s okay. My 2nd or 3rd different huckleberry beer; this might be the best but i’m not sure this fruit works very well in beer yet.

Very light in color with no hint of blue makes me wonder if this is an extract berry. The aroma is lite, mostly sweet malt. The flavor has just a bit of the berry. Very nice and refreshing. Nice brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Albertsons. Dull pour, aroma is berries, but seems candy-ish, flavor smooths out a bit, and body has a nice silky feel to it. Wheat is probably a nice base for this, and presents a decent summer quencher.

Pours pale yellow with a billowy head. Aroma is fruity sweet, but the flavor seems more dominated by a musty malt than whatever a huckleberry is supposed to taste like...

12 oz bottle- Pours hazy golden with a nice white dense head. Aroma is syrupy huckleberries, along with nice pressed and maybe sweetened huckleberries, or jam maybe, and that’s about it, not complex but appealing. The taste is less in your face huckleberry, more blended with the beer, wheat and even some grassy hops present themselves. No award winner here, simple and easy drinking.
