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.

12 oz bottle. Light hazy golden colour with thin white head. Mild berry aroma. Sweet, fruity flavour, mild wheat with a slight bitterness. Light body, watery texture and soft carbonation.

Kind of a disconcerting berry smell to start out with and I was kind of disappointed to find that the scent carried through into the flavor. Kind of like their wheatfish with a hint of berriness.

omhper (19243) - 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.

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.

What do huckleberries smell like? I don’t really know but when they’re combined with beer the result is an abomination. A sickly sweet rubber aroma. Pours a golden yellow, thin head. Sweet flavour, finish is quite sour. I guess it would be refreshing - if you just spent 3 weeks in Montana without water.

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.

presario (4598) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
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.
