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.

Golden colored with a nice sized white head that left some decent lacing. I assume that the berries I smelled were the huckleberries as I have never had one before. There was also some honey and yeasty wheat in the aroma too. A huckleberry taste along with yeassty notes. Also a watery taste that was a bit unpleasant. Very thin in the mouth. Nothing to special here, but it was neat to have a huckleberry 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.

I love huckleberries. I love beer. I normally think any kind of fruit and beer should be kept seperate. This is perhaps the best fruit beer I’ve ever had. It’s still not that great but it’s something that I could have on occasion. The huckleberries are very light and do not overpower as most fruit beers do. I would even drink it again.

This nameless mystery bottle (there is NO label) came to me at my local liqour store’s "bottle bin" section. I assume this is the Huckleberry from the obvious berry and hefe aroma. Nice looking cloudy pour and fruity flavors. A bit to sweet and not as tart as I would have liked to see. Not bad for a buck ten a bottle.

Draft 6 oz’er at the taproom. Light golden with zero head. Wow, this presents a real big berry aroma. The flavors go more to the blackberry candy realm, so much so that this reminds me of Crunchberries. Decent for the fruit lovers. (#2865, 5/12/2007)

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.

Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a dry finish.
