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.

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.

I love Huckleberries. So for me to give anything a low score with Huckleberries this beer must have missed the boat. The aroma was great but then this beer missed the huckleberry boat. There are much better huckleberry beers out there. Need to go to Idaho for these.

Pours a hazy golden brownish color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish. Iím not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.

Chemical-like huckleberry aroma. Slightly cloudy pale yellow. I hope these are huckleberry seeds because they look like sperm. Initial baking soda quality. Very tart finish. Maybe not as bad as this rating sounds but not a combination I would continue brewing. #700.

12 oz bottle, courtesy of Slikwily & Rastacouere. At first I thought, "Wild Huckleberry" what the hell? But... looks like a Wit, bright orange and hazy. Nose very fresh, strong berry presence but also vanilla and citrus. Flavor fruity, acidic, fairly full bodied for a lager, nice tart finish. I'm not blown away, but it was certainly a nice surprise (thanks again guys!) and an above average fruit beer.

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 presarioís Als vs. Stamps tasting.

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...

Pale yellow out of the bottle with a thin, fizzy white head. Sweet berry nose with a little soda pop sensation to it. Light berry fruit flavors. I donít know what huckleberries taste like, but this was like blueberries and raspberries with a light dusting of white sugar. Finish is a little more tart. Not a bad version of a fruit beer. Thanks to slikwily for the bottle.

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.

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.
