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.

I was lucky enough to get this on draft in Montana! Poured a pale yellow color with a thin off-white head. Lots of berry in the aroma. Taste is mostly of berries, but it is not overwhelming. It is also not too sweet or syrupy, the balance is good. Some hops help give the finish some crispness. Overall very refreshing.

Draft at Hops for dinner and also in Whitefish. I guess huckleberries are pretty volatile because I got very faint fruit notes here. Either that or the wheat just completely dominated the berries. Nice but wanted more fruit.

Bottle: Dusty gold pour with a thin creamy white head. Bubbly. Aroma is wheat, floral, and light huckleberry. Flavor is mild lager malt, huckleberry, and finished with wheat. Crisp. Really a pretty clean taste. More wheat than fruit.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at MacKenzie River Pizza with clear pale gold body that is nearly watery clear and supporting a thin white head. The aroma has some berry fruitiness mixing with maybe a faint grainy maltiness or a Pilsener like malt note. The taste is the same but it has a bit of a sugary saccharin sensation behind the bubbly sweet sugary berry notes. Off in the background from time to time a faint maltiness can be detected. It is a bit tough to finish a pint of this.

Bottle at the Stone of Accord. Pours a slightly hazy bright gold. Loose white head. Big fruity slightly acidic berry nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty nutty mid palate. Mostly a bunch of tart and tangy huckleberry syrup notes--appealing, and tastes fairly natural.
