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.

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.

jdskinns (194) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a pale, clear yellow color with a lively, fizzy white head that goes away completely pretty quickly. Aroma is fruit, corn, and skunky. Taste is huckleberry and a below average lager. I do like how the huckleberry comes through, but that’s not really saying I like this beer. Decent carbonation and a thin, oily mouthfeel.

RobertDale (3391) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Sampled at GABF. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Tastes the same with some hops bitterness. Found sweet tastes also. Nice fruit beer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Plenty of berries with some corn in the nose. Clear blonde body is topped by a low white head that recedes to ring. Mild sweet and somewhat soapy floral and berry flavours. Light body with strong carbonation. Chalice. Fridge temperature. Bottle sampled at presario’s Als vs. Stamps tasting.

omhper (19306) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2010
Bottled, from Columbia Falls, MT. Lightly hazy ple golden. Tinny blueberry aroma. Mid sweet with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Huckleberry takes over, and the finish is all huckleberry jam, no bitterness. Out of balance.

mbgrayson (528) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours a cloudy gold. Subtle taste and aroma of huckleberries. I like this better than many fruit beers. A solid wheat beer, with huckleberries.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Poured a hazy gold with a nice tight head that remained throughout. Aroma showed malt with a hint of berry fruit. The taste began with a fruity berry opening, moved to malt, and finished off with mild hops. Mouthfeel was nice and smooth. Overall, a nice, smooth fruity wheat beer. Too bad I can not get any more in WI.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Sampled at the brewery. Slightly hazy with a frothy white head. Aroma of jam and sweet malt. Taste is sweet berry and bread. Better than a lot of fruit beers but still pretty overly fruity for my taste. Medium body, smooth carbonation

12 oz bottle. Berries and wheat aroma. Cloudy, pale yellow in appearance. Medium head which disspiates, leaving a thin collar of foam. Berries and wheat flavor. Good...makes me wonder, whatever happened to Black Star?!?!!

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Pale, cloudy yellow, with stream of thick bubbles feeding a weak head. Huckleberry pierces through the wafting wheaty notes. Mellow berry flavor. With mild tart sour wheat to balance the sweetness. A respectable, lightly flavorful, fruit beer.
